Hi,

within my application I am storing UML elements.

private Element element;

How can I get the type of the element? For example, if it is a UML Class, I want to have "Class" as result. When it is a Port "Port" etc. I do not need it as string. Even a "type" is more better.

Any ideas?

Regards,

Tex

Hi

The MDT/UML2 project is based on Ecore so try eClass().getName().
