Hi,

I am using UML 2 Ecore converter from UML2 editor menu. In my UML model I
have a PrimitiveType owning an operation. This type is converted to an
EDataType which can't own operations. I would like to convert this
PrimitiveType to an EClass in order to keep its operations in the Ecore
model and in the geenrated Java code. I have tried to stereotype this
PrimitiveType by the EClass stereotype, but this has no effect on the
convertion process.
Is it possible to parameterize the converter?

Cheers,

Chokri

Chokri,

Primitive types in aren't generally supposed to have operations in UML
(althought they tend to have "intrinsic" operations defined for them outside
of UML, e.g. mathematically), AFAIK. If you use an instance of UML DataType
instead, it will be converted to an Ecore class as expected...
