Apply Ecore stereotype in UML2 editor [message #526253] Fri, 09 April 2010 11:38 Go to next message

This would be a totally newbie question, but I just can't find any answer to it.

How do I apply a stereotype from Ecore profile in a blank UML2 file in UML2 editor? I tried to load resource Ecore.profile.uml (which I had extracted from some .jar deeply in Eclipse/plugin directory before), but clicking to UML Editor -> Element -> Apply stereotype... does not offer me any stereotype from Ecore profile applicable to selected element (say an operation).

Complementary question: Do I understand right that in order to model a subsetted/subsetting property or attribute/operation redefinition to be generated in EMF I need to apply EReference or EAttribute or EOperation (respectively) stereotypes to corresponding elements in my UML2 model?

Thanks a lot for any help
Karel

You must first apply the Ecore profile to some package (often the root
package) in your model. Then you can apply its stereotypes to elements
within that package and its sub-packages.

See the "UML Editor -> Package" menu in the main menu bar.

No stereotypes are required for subsetting and redefinition. These are
purely UML constructs. Use the property sheet of your attributes and
operations to set these relationships.

Dear Karel,

if you want to use subsets and redefinitions in your EMF model (which is
natively not supported), you must model your metamodel as UML using
these capabilities of subsets and redefinitions and afterwards import
the UML model for the creation of an EMF model by the UML2 Importer. The
UML2 project provide a particular template for Ecore generation, using a
specific list framework for subsets and redefinitions.

Have fun
Timothy

Hello,

Thank you for all your answers and sorry for my late answer.

I used redefinition and subsetting in my UML2 model in order with UML2 specs. What confused me was a message (in a UML2 importer wizard) "Operation 'B::xyz' should be annotated as redefinition of operation 'B::xyz'". So I thought there is some more annotation next to regular UML2 features.

Then I switched 'Redefining operations' option from 'Report' value to 'Process' and 'Duplicate operation' to Ignore. (One would think if the redefinition is properly set in a UML2 model it would NOT be reported as duplicate operation!)

All is OK now (the same for subsetting). Though a bit confusing (or contra-intuitive?) for a newbie user Wink Yet i might be doing something completelly wrong. Please correct me if I do.

Thanks!
K.
