There three ways one can obtain Awas:

  1. Using osate plugin

  2. Using Awas pre-build Jar

  3. Using Awas source

1.1. Sireum Awas pluging for OSATE

OSATE is a customized Eclipse IDE for developing AADL models. Awas can be installed as a plugin in OSATE.

  6. Skip to Running Awas section to generate an Awas visualizer for your AADL Model

1.2. Sireum Awas JAR

Sireum Awas can be included in your OSATE plugin using the published JAR. Use the following Maven resolver and dependency to include Awas in your project.

  1. Add the JitPack repository to your build file

      <repository> <id></id>
  2. Add the dependency

    <dependency> <groupId>com.github.sireum</groupId>

1.3. Sireum Awas source distribution

Awas is part of a high-assurance software development platform called Sireum. Sireum IVE is used to develop the Awas source code and an OSATE development environment is used to develop the Sireum Awas OSATE plugin.

1.3.1. Prerequisites

  1. Install the required tools for building Sireum: bash, git, unzip, wget, bc

  2. Follow the instructions in the Sireum webpage apropriate for your platform to install the Sireum IVE for development

  3. Follow the OSATE instructions to setup an OSATE development environment. Eclipse is the underlying IDE being used by OSATE so the rest of plugin development instructions will refer to the IDE as Eclipse

1.3.2. Installing and Running Awas

There two steps in building Sireum Awas from source

  1. Building Sireum Awas Jar

  2. Building Sireum Awas plugin Building Sireum Awas Jar

  1. Clone the following repositories

    • Using HTTPS:

      git clone --recursive sireum-v3
      git clone sireum-v3/aadl/ir
    • Using SSH:

      git clone --recursive sireum-v3
      git clone sireum-v3/aadl/ir
  2. From the parent directory of sireum-v3 from the previous step, clone the awas repository

    • Using HTTPS:

      git clone sireum-v3/awas
    • Using SSH:

      git clone sireum-v3/awas
  3. Follow the Setting up Sireum IVE documentation to setup the Sireum development environment


    Enable the Use sbt shell for build and import option

  1. Sireum Awas is built using Scala and Slang with Java facades. Howevere, the Awas visulaizer is based on HTML5 and Javascript. This is accomplished by cross compiling Scala to Javascript using ScalaJs

  2. Building the Sireum Awas Jar

    • Without Scala:

      Execute the following shell script in your terminal


      Awas Jar can be found under awasJar/target/scala-2.12/

    • With Scala:

      Execute the following shell script in your terminal


      Rename the generated sireum.jar to awas.jar Building Sireum Awas plugin

  4. Expand the General folder and select Existing Project into Workspace, then click Next

  5. Enter the path to the directory where you cloned the repository and then select all the available projects from the project listings and click Finish

  6. Switch to the plug-in development perspective: Window -> Perspective -> Open Perspective -> Other... -> Plug-in Development

  7. Copy the jar built in the Building Sireum Awas Jar step into the <ostate-plugin-dir>/org.sireum.aadl.osate.awas/lib/ directory

  8. Run the OSATE eclipse instance by clinking the Run button from the Toolbar using the OSATE2 run configuration Running Awas
