ATL is a QVT-like model-to-model transformation language.
This means that your source and target have to be models.
Usually, these models are handled using either EMF or MDR, for which ATL
Here are several possible approaches to solve your problem, the way I
- If your Family and Member classes are (or can be) generated by EMF,
then ATL will be able to handle Family and Member objects using the EMF
- You may serialize your Java objects in a format suitable for EMF usage
(e.g., XMI), transform them with ATL, then deserialize them.
- You may serialize your Java objects to a an XML format (e.g., with
something like http://xstream.codehaus.org/, or http://jsx.org/), and
then inject them into a model (see:
- It should be possible to directly handle arbitrary Java objects.
However, because they are not handled by either EMF or MDR, you will
need a specific driver for this, which will make them appear as models.
