Transformation in ATL having as input an EPF model [message #32518] Mon, 14 May 2007 05:26 Go to next message

Hi folks,

I am working on defining transformation from EPF models to XPDL models. I
want to generate a simple XPDL model from a simple EPF delivery process.
First, I began using MOFScript transformation language, but I noticed that
maybe it's more adequate to use ATL for this.

Anyone has done something similar? Maybe I can forget transformation
languages such as ATL or MOFScript and use Java directly?

It woulde great to have a new feature in EPF to generate an ECORE model of
a delivery process... Is it possible?

Any comment will be appreciated.

Regards,

ATL is a DSL for model-to-model transformation which is a core component
of the Eclipse/M2M project dedicated to model transformation. As a
consequence it is perfectly adequate for generating XPDL models from EPF
models.
Furthermore, there are already some people in the ATL community working
on the business process field (and more precisely on XPDL). See the
following thread of discussions in the M2M newsgroup:
news://news.eclipse.org:119/f1g04l$q1k$1@build.eclipse.org

I agree it would be great. Is there already an EPF metamodel available?

Yes! I keep a check on the M2M discussions about XPDL transformations and
other tips for ATL programming...

Umhh... yes, there is a UMA metamodel published on the EPF website and an
XSD of UMA. Now I'm modelling (part of) this metamodel in UML2.

The meta-model is donated and available in Rational Software Architect 7
format now in CVS here: "\org.eclipse.epf.uma\model\1.0.4". You find there
two .emx files that contains the tool's meta-model before and after package
merge.

Hi Aitor,

I was extending the EPF publishing extension point (publishConfigWizard)
to create some CheatSheets from the defined process model using
OpenArchitectureWare while publishing the HTML websites. That is, while
you are publishing the process as HTML files you also could create other
stuff from the chosen process/configuration.

OpenArchitecureWare uses an (EPF Ecore-)model and some scripts for
model2model transformations or code generation.

Regards,
Marcel.
