InstanceSpecification of a Modeled Class [message #537829] Thu, 03 June 2010 19:10 Go to next message

Hello,

I have been playing with the ExtendedPO2, the example given in "Getting Started with UML2" and I'm trying to create an instance of one of the modeled classes using InstanceSpecification.

What I'm doing is: I create an instance specification, then I create a slot for the property "name", and then to assign a value I'm using the setValue() method, but it requires a StereoType.

Do I have to create a stereotype for the class? or maybe this is not the right approach.

InstanceSpecification is = UMLFactory.eINSTANCE.createInstanceSpecification();
is.setName("supplierInstance");
is.getClassifiers().add(supplierClass);
Slot sn = is.createSlot();
Property name = supplierClass.getAttribute("name", stringPrimitiveType);
sn.setDefiningFeature(name);
//sn.setValue(StereoType, ..., ...)????

Thank you.

Hector

hi

i guess after adding a slot you have to add some thing literal (right click on slot and choose your value type) whether it is string, integer or instance for example, and then set there your value, is that what you are asking about?

Hi Wafaa,

Thanks for the replay. I'm trying to achieve a similar result but programmatically, not in the editor. Something like the code I have in my first post.

yes, I see.
Sorry I did not see the code Very Happy


but so, can you tell me why do you use code, what is its benefits than editor..(I might ask about the target of programming it)

Hi, Hector,

Slots have multiple values. Get the value collection:

EList<ValueSpecification> Slot::getValues()

and add some kind of a ValueSpecification to it.

The setValue(Stereotype, ...) method is the API on the Element type that
sets stereotype attribute values. That has nothing to do with your
requirement.

Cheers,

Christian

Some times you may want to automatically generate object diagrams without user intervention for testing purposes. Which is what I'm trying to do.

Thank you Christian, it is working now. I was looking at the wrong method.
