Hi everyone,

I'm very new to Epsilon and modelling in general. I have been looking at the site for the past few days looking for information on how to get started with Epsilon and EML in general. I have read the chapters I think are relevant to what I want to do but I'm am still unsure how to start.

I have an ecore model that I want to right some merge rules for and was wondering how I can do this? Also is there somewhere I can get more familiar with the syntaxs and semantics of the languages as the book only seems to cover one or two examples. Maybe a tutorial or something??

Thanks,

Ferg

Ferg,

I'm new to it all myself. Try the examples page:
http://www.eclipse.org/gmt/epsilon/examples/

These will provide you with some EML scripts that you can launch from within Eclipse.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the suggestion. I will have a look at them and see if I can gleam an insight. I'm sure they will be helpful to a point. As you are only starting with Epsilon, where did you find most helpful with learning how to get started?

I think this is my main problem and also learning to set up my project for Epsilon as I am new to Eclipse. Maybe the syntax is common from some other language I could look at?

Thanks again :) ,

Ferg

Hi Ferg,

On top of the examples page Steven suggested, these two screencasts
provide a good introduction to the very basics of using Epsilon with EMF
models:

http://eclipse.org/gmt/epsilon/cinema/#BuildOOInstance_part1
http://eclipse.org/gmt/epsilon/cinema/#BuildOOInstance_part2

Cheers,
Dimitris
