I am trying to apply the resolveIn operation to a mapping that uses the disjuncts keyword. The result is always null. When I apply the resolve directly to the mappings that the original one delegates to, everything works fine.

Is there a specific reason that the trace does not support disjunctive mappings?

Hi

Pending a more informed reply...

I find the various resolve operators slightly hard to understand and the
interactions of disjuncts and inherits sometimes surprising. No doubt
many of the problems are due to my poor understanding, but I suspect
there are some areas where an imperfect QVTo implementation (or
specification) aggravates misunderstanding. The vagueness of the
specification may require you to do some empirical discovery to
determine which of the available constructs work reliably and in accord
with your evolved understanding.

I see that the specification is not very precise. But in this case, i think it would not hurt to change the implementation towards support for resolving on disjunctive mappings, since currently the result is always null. I think no one actually relies on this null result for his existing transformations. In addition, it does not sound too hard to implement, since the information about mapped objects only has to be propagated such that it is available for the disjunctive mapping. Bugzilla?

Hi

The Eclipse implementations endeavour to follow the specification, so if
you think the specification needs enhancement
http://www.omg.org/report_issue.htm is the appropriate channel.
