Faktor-IPS Add-ons

Faktor-IPS offers a number of optional functions, which can be installed as an add-on. Depending on project requirements, you can use the add-ons separately or in any combination. For the installation in Eclipse, the update manager is entered in the update site as a source. Faktor-IPS should be already installed. If you need an older version of an add-on, deactivate the option “Show only the latest versions of available software” in the update manager.

All add-ons are subject to the same license as Faktor-IPS unless otherwise specified.

Name Description Update site Download
UML plugin Plugin for exporting the Faktor-IPS model in the UML model. To view the UML model, you need UML2-Tools, an Eclipse plugin. https://update.faktorzehn.org/faktorips/uml Download
Formula library A library of formulas that can be used in product components. https://update.faktorzehn.org/faktorips/formulalibrary/ Download
Product variants The add-on for product variants allows you to model product variants, e.g. for different sales channels, without having to copy the entire product each time. https://update.faktorzehn.org/faktorips/productvariants/ Download
Runtime add-ons This add-on offers specific extensions for the runtime environment, such as additional classes for executing formulas with Groovy and distributed deployment of product data. https://update.faktorzehn.org/faktorips/runtime-addons/ Download
Value types add-ons This add-on extends the data types for Joda-Time. Only needed until Faktor-IPS 3.11. Since 3.12 it is part of the base packages. https://update.faktorzehn.org/faktorips/valuetypes-addons/ Download
Product Release Add-ons Faktor-IPS provides a product release feature to trigger a release build. This action needs access to the underlying source version control system. This add-on provides extensions to support CVS or SVN. https://update.faktorzehn.org/faktorips/productrelease-addons/ Download
Faktor-IPS m2e Plugin When Faktor-IPS projects are managed with Maven the m2e-Plugin offers two benefits:

  • The IPS-Nature is automatically added upon import (if .project file is newly created)
  • The project version can be read directly from the pom.xml with the org.faktorips.maven.mavenVersionProvider instead of duplicatation in .ipsproject
