Download Plugins for Eclipse

Installing the Eclipse Feature

STAN is available via our Eclipse Update Site. Please follow the instructions below.

  1. From Eclipse, go to Help - Install New Software...
  2. Add a new site for STAN with URL http://update.stan4j.com/ide
  3. Select the STAN IDE feature and press "Next"
  4. Follow the wizard, read and accept the license terms
  5. Restart Eclipse 

If you cannot use the update site for some reason, you may download the latest STAN features as zipped archives and extract them to your <eclipse-home>/dropins folder.

Installing the License Key (optional)

As a customer, you should have received a key per email. Copy the key and save it as file <eclipse_home>/stan.lic. Restart Eclipse.

Running your first Structure Analysis

In the Java Package Explorer, simply select packages, source folders and/or JAR files and choose "Run as... Structure Analysis" from the context menu.

After STAN has analyzed the selected code base, Eclipse will switch to the STAN Perspective, letting you explore your code structure.

Getting Help

STAN provides context sensitive help throughout the user interface: just press the F1/Help key. Select "Help > Help Contents" to browse the available help topics. For your convenience, you may also download the STAN IDE help in PDF format here.

For a brief overview of STAN's concepts and features, please refer to our White Paper.

Avoiding Memory Problems 

When analyzing large amounts of code, you may need to increase Eclipse' available heap size to avoid OutOfMemoryExceptions. For example, the following command would run Eclipse with a heap size of 512MB:

eclipse [normal arguments] -vmargs -Xmx512M [more VM args]

You can also put the extra options in <eclipse_home>/eclipse.ini.
