lock [Solved] Plugin Usage

8 years 2 weeks ago - 7 years 11 months ago #580 by mersa
Hey,

i have just started working with modelio and try to extend modelio by a plugin.

So this is most likely a very naive attempt to make my plugin work, and i´m not expecting any substantial solution for my problem but some help for basic understanding.

I´m putting a plugin.jar (for simplicity let´s say it´s a simmple "helloWorld plugin" from eclipse for now)into the plugin directory of modelio. But once started, this plugin doesn´t show up in the menubar/context menu.

What´s is my mistake? And what is the best way starting developing plugins for modelio (any good resources)?

Thanks in advance..

Hi,

you can find information about module development in the wiki and examples in the forge .

thanks for your quick response :)

the wiki is definitely a good place to start. Anyway, i feel a bit lost..

i attempted to follow the junit example to become aquainted with this topic, and it points out, that obstacles show up very quickly. First question:

where can i obtain the the modelio mdk? Does it ship with modelio? (i´m using the free version). Google doesn´t help.

Edit: ok, forget this question, took a look into the folder of the "modelio.org"-version..

Hi mersa,

the Modelio mdk is a directory, part of your Modelio installation path.

Edit: I missed your edit, you already found it. :)

Hey, it´s me again

i´m not yet done working trough all the resources given to me. Anyway, i feel like all this is leading away from my initial problem, respectively i hope to find a shortcut in order to save time.
So here are my questions:

Is it possible to adapt an eclipse plugin with (relatively) little effort to let it work with modelio?

And second. Is it possible to define an own view in modelio?

ok, let´s make some smaller steps..

i took the templatemoduleproject from the wiki. for my understanding, it already includes everything i need, to run a very basic module.

-session implementation
-mdac implementation
-an (as far as i can see it) correct module.xml
and a "hello"-message dialog

So i didn´t touch the project at all.

Running the ant file produces a .jmdac and a .jar file.
For my understanding, when i import/activate the .jmdac in modelio, it shut show me a menu entry on the project´s contextmenu. But it doesn´t.

Did i make a mistake, or is there a problem in understanding?
