I am new to this community as well as in modeling world. I have created one sample model for Library ,
Classes :

1.Library (name)
Associations : hasBooks

2. Book (title,pages,category)
Associations : isWrittenBy

3. Wtiter (name)
Associations : writesBook

If we think from metamodel layering,

M3 level : MOF
M2 Level : UML Metamodel
M1 Level : My Library Model which conforms to UML metamodel

M0 Level : Actual User model with instance value of properties.. (How to create this? )

My goal is to give M0 level model to Acceleo...

The format of template should be to generate actual description of library , books & writers..
How to achieve this?

As I m new to this domain, if i am conceptually wrong then please help me to improve it & achieve solution.

You have three options:

1. [First option is to use the EMF framework [and then the other plugins such Accelero. EMF is a kind of MOF. This is today what is the first Eclipse community choice

2. Second option is to use the EclipseUML editor and work inside a model tree. No diagram or any graphical value but you directly manipulate your model and create all needed elements.

3. Last option and the one I would recommend for a beginner is to use an existing tool. Two options among tools which are either related to GMF/EMF (e.g. Papyrus, topcased, Eclipse Modeling Tools, RSA IBM) or live syncrhonized with the metamodel and MOF (e.g. Omondo EclipseUML)
