Running and Debugging Archi

Pre-requisites

Before you proceed make sure you've set up your Eclipse environment as explained in Setting up the Eclipse Environment and have imported the code as explained in Importing the Code.


Setting up the Target Platform

Once you have the projects imported into Eclipse you need to set up the target platform that will tell Eclipse how to run or debug Archi and what plug-ins to include and exclude in the configuration.

To set up the target platform:

  1. In Eclipse's Package Explorer find the target file, "com.archimatetool.editor.product/archi.target", and open the file in the Eclipse Target Editor

  2. In the editor, click "Set as Target Platform" (top right of the editor)

  3. Now let Eclipse download all the required plug-ins. This might take a while


Running Archi from Eclipse

Once you have set up the target platform you can now run and debug Archi from within Eclipse.

To Run/Debug Archi from Eclipse:

  1. In Eclipse's Package Explorer find the product file, "com.archimatetool.editor.product/archi.product", and open the file in the Eclipse Product Configuration Editor

  2. In the editor, click "Launch an Eclipse Application in Debug mode" (bottom left of the editor)
