SmartMDSD Toolchain Installation

You just want to try things out with minimal effort? See the virtual machine and Getting Started Guide.

This page describes how to setup the SmartMDSD Toolchain by its own. The SmartMDSD Toolchain is also included in the SmartSoft Installer: The SmartSoft installer is recommended to setup the SmartMDSD Toolchain with a full software development infrastructure.

System Requirements

For consistency, we maintain the system requirements of the SmartMDSD Toolchain with the SmartSoft World Installer. If you only want to use the SmartMDSD Toolchain standalone without the remaining smartsoft infrastructure, then you only need to install the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version 8 on your system as a minimal requirement. If you are using Ubuntu Linux, you can install openjdk as follows:

sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre

Installation Instructions

  1. Download the latest binary release (.tar.gz archive file) from the release page.
  2. Extract and run the SmartMDSD Toolchain as follows:
tar xzvf SmartMDSD-Toolchain-v3.7.tar.gz # adjust version number if necessary
cd SmartMDSD-Toolchain-v3.7              # adjust version number if necessary

If you just want to use the toolchain, then you are finished here and can try out the tutorials. In case if you require a more fine-controlled installation including non-standard plugins, then you can alternativelly use the advanced installer.

Automatic Installation and Update Script

We are reworking the installation method of the SmartMDSD Toolchain. Script-Based installation is not supported at the moment. FIXME

Launch the installer script as described. To install the SmartMDSD Toolchain exclusively, only select 2) Update/Install SmartMDSD Toolchain. This will install the latest version to ~/SOFTWARE/SmartMDSD_Toolchain.latest/. Use the desktop launcher to start it. See tutorials on what to do next.
