Hello,

I have a derived attribute to calculate, the solution that I have found is to add ocl constraint to my model,

The derived value is specified by an EStructuralFeature EAnnotation with:
Source = "http://www.eclipse.org/emf/2002/Ecore/OCL"
Key = "derivation"
Value = ...the OCL expression..

But when on runtime workbench when I validate, the value of attribute wouldn't be calculate,

Is there a way to calculate the value of my derived attribute.
thanks,
regards.

Hi Emna,

have you added an annotation to the enclosing EPackage that activates the OCL setting delegate? It's explained, e.g., here: http://www.slideshare.net/EdWillink/enriching-withocl (see slide #36). You may also use the OCLInEcore editor to textually edit your Ecore models. In this case, the delegate annotations will, as far as I know, be added automatically for you. Ed may have more details.

Anyway, the annotation source URI to be used on the EPackage is http://www.eclipse.org/emf/2002/Ecore, the key is "invocationDelegates" and the value is "http://www.eclipse.org/emf/2002/Ecore/OCL".

Cheers,
-- Axel

Hi Emna

You have only provided one of the declarations required. See
http://wiki.eclipse.org/MDT/OCLinEcore or the Indigo OCL Documentation.

Specifying these annotations by hand is unchecked and very fragile. You
will find it much easier if you use the OCLinEcore editor. The Helios
version provides syntactic OCL validation. The Indigo version provides
semantic validatuion too.
