Select the TextUML Toolkit feature from the Modeling category.
Accept to restart Eclipse to make the changes effective.
If methods 1 and 2 keep failing for you due to networking issues, there is a last resort.
Manually download the repository, save the ZIP file to your local disk, then follow method 2 using the local file as the update site.
Keep in mind that by doing this you will lose the advantage of automatically getting future updates. You will need to repeat this step manuall in order to get a newer build.
Diagram rendering is optional. If you decided not to install EclipseGraphviz in the previous step, skip this section, you are done. But if you do, read these instructions.
After the TextUML Toolkit is installed, you must restart Eclipse. Once that is done, you will see you can now create MDD projects in the New Project wizard. Any files using the “.tuml” extension are considered TextUML source files and can be edited with the TextUML editor and will be compiled by the TextUML compiler. You are ready now to try the TextUML Tutorial.
