Limitations / Known Issues


Please note, starting with version 4.2 Palladio-Bench requires at least JDK 11 or higher in order to run.

Palladio Bench 5.1 Product Builds (Recommended)

Eclipse 2021-12 based All-In-One products to run Palladio and its core features out of the box are provided under Palladio Bench download site. Just download the appropriate Zip file for your system and extract and run it like you would run a normal Eclipse installation. In case you need additional Palladio features you can use the preconfigured "Install new software..." dialog with the Palladio Bench Update site selected.

If you are running recent versions of MacOS, you might experience a message saying that Palladio is broken. Most probably, this traces back to a security feature prohibiting the execution of non-signed, downloaded software. Please try to run xattr -rd com.apple.quarantine Eclipse.app to fix this issue.

Please don't use the built-in ZIP functionality of Windows OS - it is known to cause problems with Eclipse ZIP files. Instead, try 7zip or alternatives.

Eclipse Marketplace

To install the Palladio tooling via Eclipse Marketplace, visit the Palladio 5.1 marketplace entry and drag the Install button to a running Eclipse 2021-12 Modeling Tools instance.

Release Update Site

You can easily install the Palladio Bench in an existing Eclipse 2021-12 Modelling edition. The Palladio tooling is available at a central eclipse update site containing all known Palladio Core and Addon features. Direct your "Install new software" dialog at the Palladio Simulator update site. Then select any combination of Palladio Core, Addon or Support features.

Palladio needs for the model evaluation a fully installed OCL engine. Please install the OCL engine. The Update-Site will also have a category for OCL. Selecting all the provided packages there will solve the OCL errors.


Palladio comes with a Palladio Project Wizard providing templates for models to start with. Use "New Project -> Palladio Project (Sirius)" enter a project name and pick one of the provided example template projects.
