#2 BFlow project build problem in Indigo


We are having problems building BFlow project in Indigo. In eclipse indigo, we created a java project for each of the Bflow files. We installed epsilon, openarchitectureware and OTDT.But we still get errors such as build path is incomplete, and it cannot find some of the files. We deattach and attach JRE Library but it still doesn't work.

We also observe that some of the packages are missing in the project like:
import org.bflow.toolbox.bflow.Bflow;
import org.bflow.toolbox.bflow.BflowPackage

We are sure we are missing something but we cannot find out what. If you can help us running the tool from source codes, we will be very happy.

    (1) Download Eclipse 3.7 (Indigo), package version: Modeling Modeling Tools
    from http://eclipsesource.com/en/downloads/eclipse-indigo-download/

    (2) Start Eclipse

    Update Eclipse (Help - Check for Updates) (Note: This might take a while!)

    Install Eclipse Epsilon:
    Help - Install new Software
    Click Button "Add" to add the update site: http://download.eclipse.org/epsilon/updates/
    Select "Epsilon (Incubation), unselect "Eugenia"
    Click twice "Next", accept the license agreement and click "Finish"
    allow to install unsigned content
    restart Eclipse

    Install M2T Xpand/Xtend
    Help - Install new Software
    Click Button "Add" to add the update site: http://download.eclipse.org/modeling/tmf/xtext/updates/composite/releases/
    Select M2T Xpand/Extend-1.2.1 only
    Click twice "Next", accept the license agreement and click "Finish"
    restart Eclipse

    (3) Checkout the sources from the subversion repository

    You might want to check whether https://eclipsemodeling.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/eclipsemodeling
    has a newer version of any plugin.

    It is always a good idea to use the most recent sources for all plugins.
    We will also try our best to include always the most recent version in the original subversion
    repository for the bflow* Toolbox.

    If you have added new plugins that are available at
    but not yet in the bflow repository, right Click at org.bflow.toolbox.bflow-<Version>-<OS>.product, do the following:
    Run As - Run Configurations
    Select "Plugins" tab
    Press "Validate Plugins"
    If missed plugins are reported, add them by checking the checkbox for these plugins.

    (4) Checkout the sources from the subversion repository

    Replace the source for plugins which are already in your source folder with the source for those plugins from this repository.

    (5) Import the projects you have checked out from the repository:
    (File - Import - General - Existing Project into Workspace).

    Close the project org.bflow.toolbox.oaw.oepc2uml

    When the workspace is built automatically, it can happen that some errors are shown in the Problems View.
    Do Project - Clean - Clean All Projects
    Building the workspace should now proceeds without errors.

    (6) Run - Run Configurations New
    Select "Eclipse Application" (and a new window for "new_configuration" will be opened)
    For running the bflow* Tollbox, start with "Launch with all workspace and enabled target plugins" in the "Plugins" folder.
    The number of plugins should be reduced later to prevent Out of memory-errors.
    click Run
