Support for Java 7

Installing Actifsource

  • Actifsource sets the memory settings automatically after installing and restarting
  • The Restart-Button displayed after the plugin installation, restarts eclipse in such a way that it still uses the old memory settings
  • To prevent OutOfMemoryExceptions you need to completely close eclipse (File, Exit or Close-Button) and start it again

Code Snippets

  • Poor performance in the actual version

  • Only reset dirty status if save was successful


  • new ConsoleBuildTask for execution a function (on type Build with zero parameters) for writing the output to generator console
  • disable ProjectBuilder when disabling "Generate Code automatically"
  • allow cancelling ProjectBuilder during folder scan


  • Generate Error and Warning List
  • Include datatypes from cip-library
  • Datatype GenreateLibrary attribute flag
  • Support for access-modifiers in CipLibraray


  • Only close editor if save was successful
  • allow to retry saving after canelling on write failure (keep dirty status)

Bug Fixes


  • CodeSnippetRelationAspekt on CodeSnippetRelation must be required
  • StructuredCodeSnippetRelation must be initialized with StructuredCodeSnippetRelationAspekt
  • Using some Selector-Operators with literals resulted in wrong return type
  • NoSuchElementException when returning a Selector-Expression of List-Type inside a SelectorFunction with Simple-ReturnType
  • Return empty list instead of null if a SelectorFunction with Simple-Type-Expression evaluated to "null" is called via java-proxy


  • Actifsource UI freezes for a while shortly after being started (Too many name updates sent to ui thread)
  • Handle numbers in Sort-Property-action (show A10 after A2).


  • Improved try-finaly close context handing to ignore problems caused by invalid java classes and log the error instead of failing (work in progress)
  • required dependency from output project to template (build config) project (show validation error)


  • StackOverflow if defining recursive libraries not handled properly
  • SelectorEvaluationException in SyncMessageCastWriteJob
