I would like to get started with Acceleo, but the documentation I find is outdated or it is too complex for a first starter. I have followed different tutorials but none of them can be considered like a "programming guide" to this language. I have the need to use it with the UML metamodel, in particular I have to write a generator to extract some informations from a class diagram (the relations between classes, eventual attributes and operations, ecc. ecc.) and put those informations in a text file.
Is there some more "noob friendly" documentation I can follow? Even a tutorial on how to use it with classes would be enough (with good explanations)..

Thanks.

Hi,

Which tutorials or documentation have you followed? I think the Getting Started guide is clear enough for a really basic starter?

What exactly are you missing from this to make the guide "noob friendly" Smile?

the Getting Started guide on your site is good to setup a working environment but where is the Model2Text example?
The example shown in that guide are really too easy for a real life project.
Where is the guide on how to create a generator for model 2 text?

Thanks.

A "Getting Started" guide is just that ... it explains how to get started using the project Wink. More advanced tutorials are accessible through the Obeo network. However, your exercise is doable with the getting started alone.

You seem to only need to list class names along with their operations. As the getting started guide covers "how to generate the java class corresponding to an UML class", the only thing you need is how to iterate over all of your model's classes. You should be able to do that much with the explanations of this simple guide.

Thanks for the answer.
I'm able to get the desired information except the class operations.
How can I write the class operations?
