The OperettA is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) developed to support the design, analysis and development of agent organizations using the OperA Conceptual framework and methodology. It is intended to support software engineers and developers in both developing and documenting the various aspects of specifying and designing a multi-agent organization.
OperettA is developed as a plug-in feature of Eclipse. To run OperettA you require an installation of Eclipse of version 3.5 or newer (i.e., Galileo or Helios). To install OperettA, please use our update site:
Using the download site: Open Eclipse, select "Install New Software" in the "Help" menu, and insert the URL mentioned above. Select the elements you want to install and follow the instructions on screen.
The development of OperettA was made possible thanks to fundings of the EU FP-7 Project ALIVE, and is developed as open source. The sources can be found at https://subversion.cs.uu.nl/viewvc/project.alive. Checkout the sources using the following address: https://subversion.cs.uu.nl/repos/project.alive/ and select the net.sf.ictalive.operetta[.check, .diagram.is, .diagram.ss, .edit, .editor, .modeltracker, .ontology, .psdeditor] projects.
A partial tutorial (only covering OperettA and organisation modelling) is available here. If you are interested in the integration of ALIVE tools, the entire ALIVE toolset, and/or the ALIVE toolset tutorials, please visit the ALIVE website.
A brief tutorial video is available here (31 Mb).
