The Flow4J Plug-in is not loaded. What now?
Flow4J runs currently only with Eclipse 2.1.x and above, so also on 3.0.x and 3.1.x.
Check the following prerequisites:
Ensure that the GEF Plug-in is installed
Ensure that the Draw2D Plug-in is installed
Could you clarify the term "runtime" in Flow4J?
the word "runtime" is confusing
there are two types of runtime classes:
flow4j runtime classes
in the flow4jruntime.jar -
It's written by me, it belongs to the flow4j
framework. It contains the classes that are
necessary for registering and executing flows.
All in the package
n class here is the FlowManager
flow runtime classes
- are generated by
the plugin automatically after the user saves
a flow model in the designer. This code contains
calls to tasks (task flowlet) , if-then-else
clauses (decision flowlet) , calls to other
flows (call flowlets), jumps to other flows
(jump flowlets) ...
So these classes belong to the user's project
and are i their packages. There flows are
triggered/started with the help of the Flowmanager.
Without the FlowManager you could not start flow's execution.
if you debug through a flow, then it becomes clear
which parts are
from me: FlowManager and all others in the package
generated by the flow4j plugin: MyFlow.java, OtherFlow.java ...
generated by the user: ThisTask.java, OtherTask.java ...
