Generating editor with limited functionality [message #474413] Wed, 21 May 2008 05:38 Go to next message

Hello,

for a project work I need to create an UML editor (probably only
implementing state machine diagrams) with limited functionality (I only
need a few tools, not the whole palette available when using the standard
UML2Tools editor).
Additionally, I want to implement some constraints to further limit or
check drawn diagrams. Finally, the diagram should be saved as a textual
UML2 representation to be used with other tools.

I tried different approaches (for example I tried using the GMF
tutorial/cheat sheet with the UML2.ecore and .genmodel files - waaaaay too
complex), but it seems that a light-weight extension with profiles would
be the best way. I found the slides and example from EclipseCon 2008
(#172), but I'm not sure on how to adapt those to my specific requirements.

It would be highly appreciated if somebody could point me into the right
direction, as I feel a bit lost at the moment. Some small steps on how to
start would be very helpful!

Best regards, Stefan

advice.
If this isn't the right place to ask such a question, can somebody tell me
where it would be better suited?

Hi!

it's been a long time since you've asked your question and i just found it as i'm looking to solve similar problem as the current UML2Tools state machine editor doesn't display transition labels properly and i wanted to restrict functionality too.

Did you find the solution? Or maybe someone else did?
