If possible, select the Eclipse for RCP/RAP developer, otherwise you have to manually install additional plugins. This can be done via Help -> install new software
Most importantly you need:
- Eclipse plug-in development environment.
- Eclipse e4 Model Tooling
The enxt step should be the download of the repository or alternatively to check it out, using:
git clone https://gitlab2.informatik.uni-wuerzburg.de/kallimachos/ATHEN.git
