[ATL] Call lazy rule not for a collection [message #671859] Thu, 19 May 2011 07:54 Go to next message

I am using following example to call a lazy rule for a collection:

create OUT : B from IN : A;

rule RootElement {
from
billOfMaterial : A!BillOfMaterial
to
target : B!BCModel (
categories <- billOfMaterial.armature.parts->collect(e | thisModule.Part2Category(e))
)
}

lazy rule Part2Category {
from
s : A!Part
to
t : B!Category(

)
}

Can anybody tell me how to call a lazy rule for a single object? In my case i want to call it for billOfMaterial.armature(which is not a collection), but did not find such a case in the documentation.

Second problem is how to get information from billOfMaterial to that lazy rule function??

Sorry for my stupid questions, in my opinion ATL is quite difficult to understand for beginners.

Cheers
Patrick

As simple as thisModule.yourLazyRule(billOfMaterial.armature).

For you second question, you can have multiple from for a lazy rule.
thisModule.yourLazyRule(billOfMaterial, billOfMaterial.armature)

lazy rule yourLazyRule{
from
s : A!C, u : A!D
to
t : B!F(

)
}

I solved to problem in that way:

rule RootElement {
	from
		billOfMaterial : A!BillOfMaterial
	to
		target : B!BCModel	(
				categories <- billOfMaterial.addArmature(billOfMaterial.armature)
				)

}


helper context A!BillOfMaterial def : addArmature(arm : A!Armature) : B!Category =
	if not self.armature.oclIsUndefined() then
			B!Category.newInstance()	
	else
		OclUndefined
	endif;



But i cant set the name of my Category Instance, any suggestion to find a better way ?

rule RootElement {
	from
		billOfMaterial : A!BillOfMaterial
	to
		target : B!BCModel	(
			categories <- if billOfMaterial.armature.oclIsUndefined() then OclUndefined else thisModule.addArmature() endif
		)

}


lary rule addArmature{
from arm : A!Armature
to t : B!Category()
}

Thx a lot.

Because of the huge possibilites of that language I feel its not so easy get the proper way using ATL.

to t : B!Category()

I have again a question:

Lets assume category object contains a list of "Distributors". I want to fill that list with new "Distributor" objects. Theese objects have to get filled with information from "Part" objects. The "Part" instances are children from billOfMaterial.armature.

What expressions do i have to use for such use cases ? I am playing with ATL without getting a working result, so i would be very pleased for some hints.

A lazy rule can call another lazy rule which is probably what you need here

Yes a lazy rule is basicly working. But i dont know how to get data from source model objects which are one or two lazy rules above used.

It was a hard way to find out, but I'm doing some steps in the right direction.

thanks
