This page contains detailed information on how to obtain the UML and Xholon models described in Ken Webb's paper for the Symposium on Complex Systems Engineering to be held in January 2007 in California.
You will need a Java virtual machine installed on your computer, version 1.4.2 or higher. You can download either the J2SE JRE (runtime only) or the full J2SE JDK development environment. The JRE is sufficient to execute the models in the paper.
The open-source Xholon runtime framework and modeling tool is a free download available through sourceforge. Download either Xholon_0_4.zip (Windows) or Xholon_0_4.tar.gz (Linux).
The UML and Xholon files for the models described in the symposium paper are available as a zip file. Note: new version uploaded November 30 14:00 EST to fix a compatibility issue with Rcs_GP_MM (Model 3).
The draft of the paper is entitled UML Modeling of Finite State Machines and Molecular Machines, and is available through the main symposium website, under Ken Webb.
A free MagicDraw reader will allow you to examine the models in their original UML form. Click on "Download MagicDraw Reader" under "See Also". You will need to register before beginning this download. MagicDraw is not required to actually execute the models.
You can read a more detailed description of the Xholon project.
The following are some brief instructions on how to download, install and run the models:
