About

The Palladio Workflow Engine provides a workflow engine infrastructure integrated into the eclipse platform. It can be programmatically used to build up basic and composite jobs. Furthermore, there is an integration support into the Eclipse Launch Configuration environment to make workflows configurable with Eclipse's run/debug paradigm.

Initially, the workflow engine has been developed as part of the Palladio Tool. Meanwhile, it has grown up to a standalone project providing an infrastructure used by other tools, such as Ginpex, SISSy, and SoMoX.

Download / Installation

The Workflow Engine is available through an Eclipse update site:

Several update sites are currently not available due to an error. See the mailing list for details: https://lists.ira.uni-karlsruhe.de/pipermail/palladio-dev/2016-February/001344.html and find the remaining releases at https://sdqweb.ipd.kit.edu/eclipse/workflowengine/

Please note that we have changed our update site structure!
If you are interested in always referencing to the latest release, you should consider the update 'current' update site. This is a symbolic link to the latest release site. Alternatively, you can use one of the nightly update sites for the nightly build of the trunk, and if you are interested in a specific release, choose your required one from a releases subdirectory.

The workflow engine slightly differs for Eclipse Galileo (3.5) and Indigo (3.7). This is reasoned by the mdsd support of the workflow engine and the changed dependencies in the Eclipse Modeling Framework. If still stuck to Galileo, you should use one of the update sites with the _35 suffix.
