  3. SAVARA (version 1.1.0 or higher), available from http://www.jboss.org/savara/downloads

The installation instructions for the SAVARA Eclipse tools are:

  1. Eclipse

    Download the latest version of Eclipse JEE, and install in your environment.

  2. BPMN Modeller

    When Eclipse has been lauched, go to the Help->Install New Software.. menu item. Select the Eclipse update site for the version of Eclipse (e.g. Helios). Within the SOA Development category, select the BPMN Project Feature. Follow the instructions to accept the license and then restart Eclipse after the plugins have been installed.

  3. JBoss Tools

    Start up your Eclipse environment, and go to the Help->Install New Software.. menu item. Select the appropriate update site URL from the JBoss Tools download page, and enter it into the top text field in the dialog window, and press the Add button. Once the contents of the update site is available, then select the appropriate components and follow the instructions to install them within your Eclipse environment.

    The JBoss Savara Tools feature should be selected from the SOA Development category.

    If you wish to view the generated BPEL using a BPEL editor, rather than XML, then you should also select the JBoss BPEL Editor from the SOA Development category.

    NOTE: If you don't install the BPEL Editor, then you will have to install GMF. This can be found on the Helios update site, under the Modeling category. Select the Graphical Modeling Framework entry, and following the instructions to install.

    It is also recommended that you install the JBoss WebServices Tools, and JBossAS Tools, from the All category. These are required to define and launch a JBossAS server from within Eclipse, generate a JAX-WS web service from a WSDL definition, and test a Web Service.

The installation instructions for the SAVARA Service Validator are:

Once the SAVARA Eclipse Tool distribution has been correctly installed, if you wish to try out any of the examples then the following steps should be followed to import the relevant projects into the previously configured Eclipse environment.
