Is it possible to make a transformation have multiple output files?
For example: I have a model A. For every subelement Item in A, i would like to create a B, and place that in its own file.

Is this possible in QVTo?

modeltype A uses 'http//A';
modeltype B uses 'http//B';

transformation My_A_to_B_Transformation(in a : A, out B);

main() {
  // create a file for every B, made from 
}

mapping A::Item::itemToB() : B {
  name := self.name;
}

I may be wrong, but to be this would be a post-processing step rather
than part of the transformation since you don't know beforehand how
many outputs you'll have. If all instances of B are self-contained
(i.e. contain only child objects and attributes) then I would use a
TransformationExecutor to run the transform then, for the output
ModelExtent do:

ResourceSet set = new ResourceSetImpl();
for (EObject obj : extent.getContents()){
if (obj instanceof B){
Resource res = set.createResource(<uri>);
res.getContents().add(obj);
res.save(<options>);
}
}
(with some appropriate code to generate the unique URIs you need for
each instance and some options if needed).

I know the best way to do this is to transform a model A to a model C, where C contains multiple B's. I'm just wondering if this is possible in QVT Smile (i'm writing my thesis about the subject)

Edit: Thanks for the reply btw

If I'm not mistaken QVTo transformations can have multiple outputs, as long
as the number of outputs is fixed.

Hi

I think the QVTo specification is sufficiently vague to justify your
favourite interpretation. I don't see why an output should not be a
Sequence(...).

The current Eclipse QVTo implementation is probably rather more limited.
