Installing Repast Simphony in Linux – Step by Step

Unfortunately the IT department of my University decided to change my Operating System from a Gnome 32-bits to a 64-bits version. Thanks to that Eclipse did not work anymore and I had to install all the software again in the corresponding 64-bits version. As a revision of the process I am going to show step by step how to do it based on the information given in the official page of Repast Simphony.

First of all we should find the proper version of Eclipse. In my case I know that Helios works fine. Since is an older version I am going to run it locally and not to install it from the package manager. I downloaded and decompressed the corresponding package for linux (in my case the 64-bits version) in a folder where I store all the software installed locally.


Once this is done, we should install the following plug-ins and libraries:

  • Groovy
  • Eclipse XML Editors and Tools

Some days ago I needed to make a copy of my current simulation in Eclipse, perform some minor changes in the code and run it to gather new additional data. It seems simple, but of course with Repast is not.

First of all I copied the project that I wanted to duplicate using the right-button menu in Eclipse environment and when I pasted in the same environment, Eclipse showed me a window where I could choose the new name of the project. Something like that:

Form: copy the project

Run the launcher of Repast Simphony in Eclipse from a Script

Published on: Mar 1, 2012

Working to make Repast more flexible in the minimun space of time (I need to create a paper for the 7th of March) I need to run Repast Simphony automatically from a script. When I googled for that information I found the next post that really make me feel scared. It seems very complicated due to the lack of information.

Then, I decided make the things easier and I avoid to modify the Repast code. Luckily in another post I found how to copy the script that Eclipse use to start Repast. To do that we should start Repast with the corresponding launcher, then we should go to the Debug perspective and there, in the list of process, select the one that is currently running and in properties you can copy the information.
