I'm a relative newbie to Eclipse. I've written some EMFatic model code and I know that it is possible to import this into an EMF project. However when I create a new EMF project and get to the stage of selecting the model importer, the option to choose EMFatic model is not available.

I presume this is due to I don't a certain part of the Eclipse 3.6.1 software downloaded. Is anyone able to tell me what they think I might have missing?

Regards

James,

That project has not be very lively and it doesn't sound like you've
installed it. I'm not sure if older versions will install in Eclipse 3.6.

James,

No, the web page says "Coming soon..." but I think that's not true.

Hi James

You might try OCLinEcore instead of Emfatic.

OCLinEcore uses a slightly different OMG specification-like syntax and
adds support for OCL.

See http://wiki.eclipse.org/MDT/OCLinEcore and the tutorial in the OCL
documentation.

Regards

Ed Willink

The "official" emfatic does not seem to be support anymore. However,
Andy Carpenter from Univ. of Manchester, UK, has reimplemented basically
the same language using Xtext (with an internal ATL transformation) that
works very well. Use the following URL as update site:
http://www.cs.man.ac.uk/~andy/eclipse/

Andy wants to contribute the code, but the process for replacing the
current official release by his code seems to have stopped. The code has
been attached to the following bugzilla:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=323501

I mentioned this to the Sven "Xtext" Efftinge at ESE and he said he
wasn't aware of the code contribution. I think Itemis has plans of their
own, and hopefully we can end up with only one textual Ecore language
with excellent tooling.

BTW, the "new" emfatic editor has support for OCL annotations, and you
can plug-in any other scripting language like Javascript, using an
extension point.
