We are creating a plug-in for Eclipse for editing DPF models. The master students working on this are

  • Dag Viggo Lokøen
  • (Øyvind Bech, finished)
  • Anders Sandven and
  • Suneetha Sekhar


Try the current version of the DPF Editor

Install the DPF editor

  1. Install Eclipse Modeling Tools (Indigo) from Download Eclipse
  2. Download latest source code of the DPF editor from here
  3. Extract the zip file (you get the directory dpf-model-editor)
  4. Start Eclipse
  5. Import all projects of directory dpf-model-editor in your Eclipse workspace
    1. File->Import->General->Existing Projects into Workspace
    2. Select root directory dpf-model-editor
    3. Keep all projects selected and press Finish
 Attention: There may be a few compile errors in some Java classes: Just ignore them!

Run the DPF editor

  1. Run no.hib.dpg.editor project as Eclipse application
    1. Right mouse click on project no.hib.dpg.editor
    2. Run as Eclipse Application
