UML elements already stereotyped in the palette to drag and drop onto the editor [message #483658] Wed, 02 September 2009 13:45 Go to next message

Hi All,

I'm working on a project that will extend UML2Tools. I need help for:

a) use existing uml2tools functionality (primarily the class and component
diagram at the moment)

b) extend uml2tools functionality to add elements described using
stereotypes (for instance a class element already stereotyped with a
custom stereotype). these components will be added to the palette so that
the they can be dragged and dropped onto the editor.

c) not alter uml2tools code so that future versions of uml2tools can be
used without affecting the extension and not requiring recoding of the
extension.

This should obviously take place in a new plugin. I've looked at the
examples in the help files (like helloworld etc) but have not worked out
how to extend plugins like uml2tools.

Please could someone describe how I should set up a plugin to do all this?

thanks in advance,

regards,

Nando

Hi Nando,

Do you know that UML2Tools is a GMF proof of concept for full editor
generation and does not aim at providing a usable editor?

Why extending this tool and not contributing to the MDT Papyrus
component, which stands for the next reference implementation of OMG UML
specification?
Class and component diagrams are almost stabilized...

regards
raphaël
