Cloud-Connector for Eclipse available

You can now install the first public version of the Virtual Developer Cloud-Connector for Eclipse from the Eclipse marketplace. The Cloud-Connector is a lightweight Eclipse plug-in that allows you to use all code generators that are available on the Virtual Developer Portal. To try out a code generator, you just need to take the following steps:

  • Register on Virtual Developer Portal
  • In your Eclipse, install the Virtual Developer Cloud-Connector from the Eclipse marketplace
  • Create a generation project on the Virtual Developer Portal and assign a code generator to it.
  • Create a new model or use a sample model that comes with a specific generator, select the model in the Cloud-Connector and run the code generation in the cloud. Depending on the generators that you have selected in your generation project, it might be required to install a modeling tool (e.g. Virtual Developer Modeler).

We are currently working on the documentation for the Cloud-Connector and also for other Virtual Developer components. If you have any questions or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We are looking forward to talk to you and to support you.

Bear in mind: you can also develop your own code generators. Just check the „I want to be a provider“ checkbox on the registration page.
