Website under construction!

Online XDD checker tool is currently not available.
Please read instructions below for the workaround.

Due to construction work on our website, the online version of the XDD checker tool is currently not available. Don’t panic, we’ve created a workaround for this situation.

You can either use the XDD checker function integrated in the current openCONFORMANCE test tool (only available for EPSG member), or you use an offline version of the XDD checker tool. The offline XDD checker tool comes in form of an Eclipse plug-in. Its installation can be conducted via the normal Eclipse plug-in install mechanism.
The Eclipse plug-in of the XDD checker tool is available on Sourceforge, its project name is “XDD Eclipse Tool Suite”. Please follow the instructions below on where to download, how to install and use the tool.

Eclipse is an integrated development environment (IDE) used in computer programming, and is the most widely used Java IDE. It contains a base workspace and an extensible plug-in system for customizing the environment. You can download it here: https://www.eclipse.org/

Download the XDD checker tool:


  • Open the Eclipse IDE
  • Click: Help -> Install New Software
  • Click: Add -> Archive
  • Select the file which contains the “XDD Eclipse Tool Suite”, a ZIP archive, and click “OK”
  • Install the plug-in

How to use:

  • Create a new generic project
  • Copy the XDD file in the project tree
  • Right click on a XDD file in the eclipse Project Explorer.
  • Choose “Run POWERLINK XDD / XDC checker”
  • The results will be created as an HTML report, stored in the Eclipse working folder and directly opened in the Eclipse internal browser.

Please note:

Normally the XDD checker tool can also be installed through the Eclipse marketplace, but due to an issue with the SSL encryption strength with the Sourceforge website, the installation through the Eclipse marketplace is currently not possible. If you still wish to use the Eclipse marketplace to install the XDD checker tool you can apply the following workaround described after the link: https://gnu-mcu-eclipse.github.io/blog/2017/01/29/plugins-install-issue/
