PCM, Version 3.3, Win32 PCM, Version 3.3, Mac64, including example workspace. For LQN support install LQN Solvers/Simulation(342 MB, 2012-05-08), for further data visualization and analysis in conjunction with the statistics tool R see R Statistics for PCM.
The drop is password-protected, but feel free to contact us if you are interested in it. To install a drop, simply unzip it. Please don't use the built-in ZIP functionality of Windows OS - it is known to cause problems with Eclipse ZIP files. Instead, try 7zip or alternatives.
You need to have an installed Java SE Platform (JDK) 6 or higher in order to run Palladio-Bench.
We provide an example workspace for the PCM 3.3, which contains three different project examples. You can immediately start to analyse these three software models when using the example workspace.
