There is a common misconception that you can just throw an XMI
serialization at a system and out will pop well formed model. Of course
this misconception is aided by the fact that this is generally how it's
supposed to work. The misconception part is that you can throw any old
XMI serialized instance at the system with the expectation that nice a
model will pop out. In reality the system must effectively know the
model that corresponds to each namespace mentioned in the XMI
serialization and if it doesn't know that model in intimate detail, the
XMI is just so much meaningless syntax.

Given you have a UML2 serialization, it's best to ask on the UML2
newsgroup how to read it; I've added that group to the "to" list of the
reply. Of course starting with the documentation at their website would
be best:
<http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/mdt/?project=uml2>

Do you know which tool produced the XMI file and which version of UML it is
based on?

Khan,

Have you tried saving the file with a .uml2 extension and opening it with
the sample UML editor? If you could attach the file (or a representative
sample) we could better advise you...

Khan,

Now the example seems completely unrelated to a serialized UML
instance. You're also using an upper case fix suffix, although you
registered a lower case one. And you're using a OS-dependent file
system path as if it were a URI. If you're just working with a simple
EMF model, I'd suggest you follow one of our tutorials, and invoke
"Generate Test Code" in the generator. That will produce a *.tests
project with an XyzExample.java that illustrates what you need to do to
read and write instances of that model in a stand-alone program.

Khan,

If you follow the EMF tutorial using your Ecore model and do what I
suggested to generate the example, that will provide you a working
example of what you need specific to your model. That's the best I can
offer.

Khan,

Have a look at the tutorials on this page

http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/emf/docs/

These tutorials describe how to use the Generator to "Generate Model
Code". You'll see "Generate Test Code" on the same popup menu.

I am back to you after having detail EMF tutorial and your fantastic

Well, EMF it very cool thing to facilitate modeling and programing world.
I can now create Ecore model based on any UML class diagram. and then What
I understood is to generate EMF Model which is called *.genmodel to
generate java codes.

I saw in your presentation project architecture which you created as Empty
EMF Project. It provides you Model folder and META-INF folder and other
two things I have seen (Plug-in Dependencies, and JRE System Library) that
I dont get any, when I create any Empty EMF Project.

But code generator I have seen. I will also generate code in my case
depending upon what I have made UML Class diagram. SO far it is fine, and
I uderstood. But later I need to parse the generated classes. Could you
please guide me how can i do this???

Khan,

So you've invoked Generate Test Code and you have a *.tests project with
an XyzExample? This wasn't shown in the tutorials...

An empty project is useful for if you want to build your modeling from
annotated Javadoc or want to create an Ecore model directly. Once you
generate code into that project, the plugin.xml should be generated and
the MANFIEST.MF will be updated.

Khan,

I'm not sure if you mean instances of UML itself or just a model for
which you happened to use UML as the way to define it. If the former,
the using the generated example is good, if the latter, then using the
documentation from the UML website is good.

Ed Merks,

If I change the suffix in lower case would it work, will I be able to read
XMI??? As you said, it is totally unrelated for UML instance. Well Merks,
I only have to write a java class where I can read stored Xmi file,
supposedly I have already converted XMI file saved some where on my
computer. In this case, am I going right???

Khan,

If you follow the EMF tutorial using your Ecore model and do what I
suggested to generate the example, that will provide you a working
example of what you need specific to your model. That's the best I can
offer.

Khan,

Have a look at the tutorials on this page

http://www.eclipse.org/modeling/emf/docs/

These tutorials describe how to use the Generator to "Generate Model
Code". You'll see "Generate Test Code" on the same popup menu.

hi Ed Merks,

I am back to you after having detail EMF tutorial and your fantastic
online demostration of EMF round trip. Ecore to Java and back to it.

Well, EMF it very cool thing to facilitate modeling and programing world.
I can now create Ecore model based on any UML class diagram. and then What
I understood is to generate EMF Model which is called *.genmodel to
generate java codes.

I saw in your presentation project architecture which you created as Empty
EMF Project. It provides you Model folder and META-INF folder and other
two things I have seen (Plug-in Dependencies, and JRE System Library) that
I dont get any, when I create any Empty EMF Project.

But code generator I have seen. I will also generate code in my case
depending upon what I have made UML Class diagram. SO far it is fine, and
I uderstood. But later I need to parse the generated classes. Could you
please guide me how can i do this???


Regards,
Khan

Khan,

So you've invoked Generate Test Code and you have a *.tests project with
an XyzExample? This wasn't shown in the tutorials...

An empty project is useful for if you want to build your modeling from
annotated Javadoc or want to create an Ecore model directly. Once you
generate code into that project, the plugin.xml should be generated and
the MANFIEST.MF will be updated.

of course, that was not in tutorial but I have seen similar example in
your live demonstration (uploaded at eclipse.org) that generates *.tests
folders. But please recommend me how can I parse UML model which is
generated as classes by *.genmodel (generate options).

Khan,

I'm not sure if you mean instances of UML itself or just a model for
which you happened to use UML as the way to define it. If the former,
the using the generated example is good, if the latter, then using the
documentation from the UML website is good.
