Papyrus is an Open Source UML 2 tool [3] based on Eclipse and licensed under the EPL. It can either be used as a standalone tool or as an Eclipse plugin. Papyrus provides support for Domain Specific Languages and SysML. Papyrus is designed to be easily extensible.


Papyrus is a graphical editing tool for UML2 as defined by OMG. Papyrus provides support for UML profiles. Every part of Papyrus may be customized: model explorer, diagram editors, property editors, etc.


Papyrus also provides a complete support to SysML in order to enable model-based system engineering. It includes an implementation of the SysML static profile and the specific graphical editors required for SysML.


A variant of Papyrus, Papyrus for Real Time (Papyrus-RT),[4][5][6] implements UML-RT, a Domain Sepcific Language (DSL) designed for realtime embedded systems development. UML-RT is a UML-based variant of Real-Time Object-Oriented Modeling (ROOM).
