JBoss Developer Studio 4.0 - how to add native BPMN editor / Enterprise Architect Savara tooling

I mostly use the JBoss Developer Studio which integrates all my JBoss Tooling in a painless Eclipse experience.

I wanted to make use of the native BPMN Eclipse tooling and the Enterprise Architect Savara project tooling that is provided by JBoss. There are two steps to adding this tooling:

BPMN native Eclipse tooling
Help -> Install New Software... -> in the 'Work with:' select the Helios update site or add it (http://download.eclipse.org/releases/helios/) -> select SOA Development -> select BPMN Project Feature -> (after deps and agreement it is a go for install)

Once this finishes and restarts JBoss Dev Studio you will be ready to use the native BPMN editor in Eclipse. But there is more, we want the Savara project tooling so we do the following:






Savara tooling
Help -> Install New Software... -> in the 'Work with:' select the JBoss tools update site or add it (http://download.jboss.org/jbosstools/updates/stable/helios/) -> select JBoss Savara Tools Feature -> select pi4soa Core -> (after deps, agreement and accept unsigned content it is a go for install)

Once this finishes and restarts JBoss Dev Studio you will be ready to go with both BPMN native editor and Enterprise Architect Savara project tooling!
