This Eclipse Plugin supports editing of Madura Rules and Madura Workflow files. The Madura Suite makes use of rules and workflow definitions. Unlike similar products it keeps these definitions in text files rather than maintaining them with a complex UI. But a helpful editor is always welcome and this plugin provides two of them. One for the workflow definitions and one for the rules definitions. There are also creation wizards for each to get you started, syntax checking and content assist while you edit, and an outline to help you navigate. These are just editors, they do not provide a runtime environment.

Install the plugin into your Eclipse IDE using the button below or from the update site:

Drag to your running Eclipse* workspace. *Requires Eclipse Marketplace Client

  2. Refresh the workspace.
  3. Invoke Project>Build all from Eclipse. That will build the feature and plugin sub-projects.
  4. Open the update project's site.xml file in the editor. Click on Synchronize and then click on Build All.
