Hello,

I am a newcomer to both modeling and Epsilon. My prior, and short, experience is with oaw. I was trying to do a small ETL example to initiate my work in Epsilon.

The issue is that in oaw once I defined a variable of a metamodel "type", I could use the '.' (dot) to navigate throught the properties of that varaible. I tried doing the same on ETL but the editor is not giving me any options when either using the '!' or the '.'.

Any pointers?

Hi Horacio,

Epsilon languages such as ETL are not statically typed (there are pros
and cons to this) and as such, code completion is not available in the
editors.

Cheers,
Dimitris
