Cameo MDK is a plugin for Cameo Systems Modeler and other No Magic environment bundles that’s primary purposes are to sync models with the MMS and implement the DocGen language, which allows modelers to dynamically generate documents in a model-based approach using the view and viewpoint concept.

  2. Run CSM. From the main menu, select "Help" > "Resource/Plugin Manager". Resource/Plugin Manager

  3. Click "Import", navigate to the downloaded Cameo MDK plugin, and click "Open".

  4. CSM should confirm installation with the following prompt.

  5. Restart CSM. To check installation, select from the main menu "Help" > "Resource/Plugin Manager" > "Plugins (no cost)" and ensure a row exists for "Model Development Kit" and its status is "Installed" with the correct version. MDK Installed

Cameo MDK can also be installed headlessly by simply unzipping the plugin archive into the directory that CSM is installed in.


Documentation can be accessed online or offline in CSM from the main menu "Help" > "Other Documentation" > "MDK [...] UserGuide".

Local Development

Cameo MDK is a Java project that uses the Gradle build tool. It can be imported as a Gradle project in IDEs like IntelliJ and Eclipse.

Common Tasks

  • ./gradlew dependencies will download all necessary dependencies.
  • ./gradlew assemble will compile Cameo MDK from source.
  • ./gradlew distZip will package the installable plugin.
  • ./gradlew installDist will install the plugin in a staging environment.
  • ./gradlew runJava will interactively run CSM with Cameo MDK from the staging environment.

Task dependencies are declared such that all necessary prerequisites are executed/cached, e.g. runJava will first dependencies, assemble, distZip, etc.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
