We are making an extension of a meta-model defined in KM3.
In this new extension we want to avoid inheriting some attributes and we don't know how to do it.

We have consulted the documentation and haven't found any solution to do it.
We also tried to redefine these attributes to have other behaviour but don't work.

Could you tell us how to do it?

thanks

Best regards

Hello,

Metamodel extension works by adding new elements, not removing elements (i.e., it is from this point of view similar to class inheritance in Java).

Supposing you have metamodel A, and you want metamodel B to extend a part of A and drop the rest. The best solution I can think of right now is to define metamodel C that corresponds to the common parts between A and B. Then A and B may extend C.


Best regards
