Horus for Developers

Support for Theses and Educational Projects


In the scope of our cooperation with international education facilities, we are providing the code of our Horus Business Modeler and all of our other tools to students who are attending one of our Endeavor partner universities for their theses or internships.

This is how you can access the Horus code:

Horus Business Modeler
1. Request an SVN account
You can request an account by sending an email to horus-endeavor-development@horus.biz with a brief description of who you are and why you need access to the code. An account with appropriate access rights will then be created for you.

2. Download Horus Documentations.
Once you obtain an SVN account, you will have access to a number of documentations about various code aspects and development tools for Horus. All documents are available at http://horus.fzi.de/svn/horus/docs which can be accessed using an SVN repository browser (TortoiseSVN for example).

The document ‘HBM-DevelopmentEnvironment.docx’ serves as the starting point; it describes how to set up Eclipse, get the Horus source code, and run Horus in the development environment. Other documentations describe how to set up a local database and local server, how to work with different code artifacts such as meta models, and how to use various auxiliary tools for performance and usability studies.

In case of any questions or problems during development, please feel free to contact us.
Other Products
A direct access to the code for our other products (e.g. Horus Community Portal and Horus GRC+) is usually only provided for users within our corporate network. However, under certain circumstances, we can share the code and documentations with endeavor developers.

In case you need access to the code for these products, please send an email to horus-endeavor-development@horus.biz with a brief description of who you are and why you need the code, and we will discuss a proper way to share the code and documentations with you.
