Sorry for picking this up again. Since we are working on a new release, what about writing the installation guide?
EPF has the potential to use my be many who are not interested in open source, only in getting a job done and who would like to be able
install without anxiety.
Even the simple fact that epf can be installed outside
eclipse as a standalone application should be mentioneed. The file
structures and where to install what etc etc should be
There is even an open-source installer that could be
used (same as my sql uses) where people just selects options and then click on a
button and watch it unfold.
You almost did it.
You need to say Yes to "Copy to create a writable copy"
This was added so that every
user would always have a pristine copy of the library on their hard
Or you can skip copying it,
and modify the library that you downloaded.

|RE: [epf-dev] epf
am still stuck. The http://www.eclipse.org/epf/general/getting_started.php does not have any information about how to install epf and
As said, the first steps are
easy, unzip and double-click and epf comes up. But then the troubles
You say: "In order to open these libraries,
simply unzip the *library*.zip file in your local file system".
Let us have a look at the downloads:
1. Eclipse Process Framework (EPF) Downloads: EPF
Download EPF Wiki releases, milestone builds
3. EPF Practices:
Download EPF Practices library and published Web site (including ABRD
Download OpenUP library and published Web site, plus these published Web
sites: OpenUP/DSDM and OpenUP/ABRD.
Scrum: Download Scrum library and published Web site
6. XP: Download XP library and
published Web site
Authoring Method for Eclipse Practices Library: Download MAM EPL library
and published Web site
Number one is the easy one - epf is up and running.
Number two - let us leave that
Number three EPF Practices: Contains three files (a)
Library: epf_practices_library-188.8.131.52-20090227.zip, (b) Published Web
site: epf_practices_published-184.108.40.206-20090227.zip and
(c) ABRD published
Web site: abrd_published-1.5-20090227.zip plus Bugzilla. Is it correct
that you are saying that I have to copy and unzip these three libraries when you
"In order to open
these libraries, simply unzip the *library*.zip file in your local file
Let me proceed to see what then happens: I copy and unzip the three
files under the epf-composer folder. The (c) appears to have most but not
all files in common with (a) and I choose the options not to let ABRD files
overwrite the files from the (a). All these elements must be part of an
installation description in my eyes. I should sweat in panic already since
I am fumbling in the dark.
Then, next step: " and point Composer to open the
library.xmi file." In practice, I try it out. First I have to find THE
"library.xmi file". I go to FIle->Open->Method Library and by
default it points to my C disk with my ËPF\Method Libraries\Library1. OK,
there is no such thing. I then use Windows file system to search for a
"library.xmi file" under the epf-composer folder. I find one in the
\EPF_Practices folder. I point the application towards it. Then
comes the cryptic message: "The library is not writable". Was nun kleiner
Mann? What is the recommended way forward? The composer tells me
that I have the option of skipping it or to "Copy to create a writable copy ...
". What am I to do? Try out all options untill I have explored the
limits of the universe of combinatorial mathematics?
Or much better, could someone write instructions how to install epf - or
rather the processes. That would be great progress.

Hi Bjorn, thanks for your questions.
On the EPF page you find a link to
Getting Started material that should help you understand and use the EPF
Composer tool. Please refer to: http://www.eclipse.org/epf/general/getting_started.php
Briefly explaining, you can
use EPF Composer tool (the software part) to create your own process
description, or use anyone of the many process descriptions (the documentation
part, if you will) available as part of this project, such the ones you
- OpenUP - a minimal, complete, and extensible process based on
agile and UP principles
- ABRD - Agile Business Rules Development guidance for projects that
involve developing business rules
- DSDM, Scrum, XP are also available as part of the
order to open these libraries, simply unzip the *library*.zip file in your local
file system and point Composer to open the library.xmi file. This scenario is
useful if you want to publish the out-of-the-box content yourself, or
extend/reuse this content.
However, if you want to use the out-of-the-box content as is, you can
simply unzip the *published*.zip of your choice, and run index.htm - it will
open your Internet browser and you will be able to navigate the published
have to install all of them? It depends on what you are looking for. Are you
interested in following one of these particular methods or document/use one
defined by your organization?
I hope this reply adds some clarity and addresses
your questions. But please look at the Getting Started session of the EPF web
site for more material, such as articles, demo recordings, and such.
And send further questions to
this group at anytime.

Sorry for the very basic question: How do I
On the http://www.eclipse.org/epf/ page I found
no simple instructions: What do I have to download, what could/should I
download, how should I configure the beast? I have installed the
epf-composer, the software starts when I click on epf.exe, that is easy.
But then there are other things, like:
EPF Practices 220.127.116.11 - Library
(epf_practices_library-18.104.22.168-20081027.zip), Published Web site
(epf_practices_published-22.214.171.124-20081027.zip), ABRD published Web site
What are they good for? Do I have to
install them? What part of epf is is documentation and framework and what
The epf composer appears to run independently from
eclipse.exe itself, is there no integration?
There is also DSDM_OpenUP?
Do I have to/should I install them?
Thank you for any
