read-only transaction context problem [message #484667] Tue, 08 September 2009 16:53 Go to next message

Dear GMF folks,

I want to set an attribute of the EMF model from some arbitrary method
(not an Edit Policy). In particular I do it from the getPrintString()
method of a label parser, but never mind.

However, the following code results in a
java.lang.IllegalStateException: Cannot activate read/write transaction
in read-only transaction context
Why?

Hauke

------------------------------------------------------------ --------
final newString = ...
final targetElement = some EMF model object (EObject)

ICommand command = new AbstractTransactionalCommand(TransactionUtil
.getEditingDomain(targetElement), newString, null){
@Override
protected CommandResult doExecuteWithResult(
IProgressMonitor monitor, IAdaptable info)
throws ExecutionException {
targetElement.setTriggersAndEffects(newString);
return CommandResult.newOKCommandResult();
}
};
ICommandProxy proxy = new ICommandProxy(command);
IEditorPart editor =
PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActi vePage().getActiveEditor();
if(editor instanceof DiagramEditor){
DiagramCommandStack commandStack = null;
Object adapter = ((DiagramEditor)
editor).getAdapter(CommandStack.class);
if (adapter instanceof DiagramCommandStack)
commandStack = (DiagramCommandStack) adapter;
if (commandStack == null)
commandStack = new DiagramCommandStack(null);
commandStack.execute(proxy);
}

Hello Hauke,

I think the reason is - read-only transaction was started before calling
getPrintString() method, so you are not expected to modify any model properties
there.

Hey Alex,

ah, thanks for that hint. Maybe I did not get that command thing right
then yet.

So I don't really need to execute that command synchronously. I would
simply like to schedule my command such that it gets executed whenever
there is a writable status again.

Is there a way to push my command to the command stack such that it gets
executed later?

Cheers,
Hauke

usually a good way to go are RecordingCommands. A RecordingCommand records
the changes made by a subclass's direct manipulation of objects via the
metamodel's API. This simplifies the programming model for complex
commands and should be suitable for your application case.

Please note that the constructor of a RecordingCommand needs an
TransactionalEditingDomain (which can be acquired from many GMF elements,
for example by IGraphicalEditPart.getEditingDomain()).The editing domain
also provides access to the command stack that should be used to execute
the command.

Executing your RecordingCommand on this CommandStack should provide you
with an valid read/write transaction.


Cheers,

sas

Sascha, thanks for your answer. However, it is not exactly working. See
below.

Whatever command I use, the problem is always the same. I tried a
SetCommand, a RecordingCommand or a custom command.

The problem is, that in my situation, the CommandStack I get from the
corresponding EObject is in a read-only state, i.e. the EditingDomain
has an active read-only transaction. So my write command triggers that
exception.

The thing is, that I want to tell the CommandStack then to execute the
command *after* the read-only transaction has been run through... How
can I do that? There must be a way...

Hi All,

I'm also facing the same issue. Any suggestions on this front?

Thanks in advance,
Mona
