Let’s install your Astah plug-in

Your Plug-in file should be generated at the “target” folder under the Astah Plug-in project as “[artifactId] – [version].jar”. Copy this file to “plugins” folder under Astah Installation folder* and then launch Astah, and go to [Plugin] – [Installed Plugin]. (If you are using Astah SysML, go to [Help] – [Plugin List].)
*If you are using Astah System Safety, create a “plugins” folder under Astah System Safety’s installation folder.
