grEMF provides an integration between the modeling framework EMF and the Java graph library JGraLab.
Installation and building
gremf project depends on the JGraLab project
jgralab and the EMF subprojects
org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi. Thus, there are indirect dependencies to the JGraLab project
common and the EMF subproject
org.eclipse.emf.common, but see the respective build instructions for a more detailed overview. The
gremf project is based on specific versions of the mentioned dependencies:
jgralabproject: special branch, currently named
- EMF subprojects: build M6 of EMF 2.8, not yet available via the plugin's update site
Due to this dependencies it is assumed to checkout all relevant projects:
Start the building by checking out the
git clone https://github.com/jgralab/gremf.git
Generally, there a two different ways of using grEMF and therefore several build mechanisms.
Building as library using Ant
Note: Apache Ant is needed
Copy the contained template file
user.properties and enter the required information. An example file is given below:
eclipsehome.dir=/Applications/eclipse emfprojects.dir=/Users/demo/projects/emf/org.eclipse.emf/plugins istprojects.dir=/Users/demo/projects/jgralab
Use the included Ant script to build the
ant -f grEMF.xml build
Building as library using Eclipse
All projects are EMF projects as well allowing to use Eclipse for building. Note that in this case the JGraLab project
jgralab4eclipse must be used instead of the plain
jgralab project. Additionally, all projects must be present in the same Eclipse workspace.
Building as plugin
Note: The Eclipse Plugin Environment is needed
It is necessary to carry out all steps of the previous section first. Afterwards, checkout the feature project
de.uni_koblenz.gremf, which is contained in the
feature folder within the
gremf project, as a separate project into the same workspace. Use the included feature file
feature.xml to deploy a working plugin containing all needed dependencies. The generated output have be added to the
dropins folder in your eclipse home directory.
You can generate a full API documentation using the Ant script:
ant -f grEMF.xml document
