Fujaba Compilations

There are several different Fujaba compilations. First of all, we distinguish the

  • Fujaba Tool Suite, which is a stand-alone version of Fujaba, and
  • Fujaba4Eclipse that is integrated in the Eclipse IDE.
The most recent research results and tools are usually available for Fujaba4Eclipse, only.

Fujaba4Eclipse (Eclipse plug-ins)

If you like to use Fujaba in the Eclipse IDE, you can use the following update site in order to install the Fujaba4Eclipse feature (i.e. a set of Eclipse plug-ins that constitute the Fujaba Tool Suite in Eclipse). In addition, there are several Eclipse plug-ins available that extend Fujaba4Eclipse with, for example, reverse engineering capabilities (Reclipse) or support for real-time systems.

Fujaba Tool Suite (stand-alone)

If you like to install the stand-alone Fujaba version (Fujaba Tool Suite), you have to select and download one of the available compilations. There are, for example, the following Fujaba Tool Suites:

Fujaba (stand-alone) Installation Instructions

Download, install, and run the Fujaba Tool Suite performing the following steps:

  1. You need SUN's Java Development Kit (JDK Version 1.5 or higher for Fujaba Tool Suite 5.0, JDK Version 1.4.2 for Fujaba 4.0 or JDK Version 1.3.1 for Fujaba 3.0) installed correctly on your local operating system. If you use Fujaba 3 or the LIFE³ edition, please make sure that you have the 'tools.jar' library accessible in your local classpath. The library is located in the directory <tt>lib/tools.jar</tt> of the JDK.
  2. Download the latest version of the Fujaba Tool Suite. First choose the version for your operating system. For Windows platforms use the W32 (*.exe) install files. For all other Java enabled platforms download the Jar files (which is of course also applicable to Windows platforms). Since Fujaba 5 you can also use a web installer. In this case you can choose which components you want to install. If you use a single-file installer there are three different editions to download:
    • The Standard edition is suitable for most users. It includes all necessary files to run Fujaba.
    • The Developer edition additionally contains the sources and the API documentation.
    • The LIFE³ edition (currently not available for Fujaba 5) is designed for educational purposes. It is limited to UML class diagrams, story diagrams and the Dynamic Object Browsing System (Dobs). It is available for Windows systems only.
  3. On Windows platforms simply run the installer and follow the instructions. For all other Java enabled platforms use the command <tt>java -jar "Installer-name".jar</tt> to run the installer.
  4. You may start Fujaba by
    • selecting "Fujaba" from the start menu on Windows platforms or
    • typing <code>java -mx512m -jar fujaba.jar</code> in the fujaba root directory or
    • simply doubleclick on <tt>fujaba.jar</tt>. (The option "-mx512m" sets the maximum heap space to 512 MB.)
  5. To install plug-ins for the Fujaba Tool Suite 5 or 4 you have two options:
    • Start the Fujaba Tool Suite and download plug-ins via the "Manage Plug-Ins" dialog. You can find the dialog in the "Help" menu of Fujaba. See the Plug-In Installation guide for details.
    • Download the plug-in zip-files and unzip them into the plugins/ folder of your Fujaba Tool Suite installation.
    In both cases, make sure that you have installed all needed plug-ins and all dependencies between plug-ins are fulfilled. (You can look for plug-in dependencies in the "Manage Plug-Ins" dialog.)
