Purpose of the following slideset [message #892111] Wed, 27 June 2012 02:54 Go to next message
Eclipse User
Hi all,

lately, I stumbled over the following slide set in the Papyrus SVN
(svn://dev.eclipse.org/svnroot/modeling/org.eclipse.mdt.papyrus/trunk/extraplugins/diagramtemplate/org.eclipse.papyrus.diagramtemplate.doc/resources/template-diaGen.pdf)
and was wondering what this is actually about, since I was not to figure out
which of the following two following briefly described functions this
template provide (or whether it is mature and still included in papyrus):

1. A wizard to generate (GMF code generation) completely new and tailored
diagrams based on existing diagrams (so kind of heavyweight diagram view).
The result (the GMF plugins) must be deployed in order to be usable.

2. A wizard to define in-place tailoring of existing diagrams, so this would
be sort of lightweight appraoch to the former one, since it does not involve
a complete generation of a new diagram.

I slighty tend to the second approach, but I'n not really sure. Anyway, that
looks impressive and I would like to leverage this kind of diagram view
wizard. Some weeks ago we built a similar solution based on tab change
listeners, but this seems to be the right way to tailor diagrams to specific
needs.

Thanks for any help.

Hello Marc-Florian,


Actually, none of these two approaches. This tool is used to generate a graphical diagram from a semantic UML Model (Using an existing kind of diagram, such as a Papyrus Class Diagram).

This is an extra-plugin, and, as such, there is no guarantee about its stability. This plug-in was initially designed as a proof-of-concept, but when I last tried it, it worked pretty well.


Regards,
Camille

Hi Camille,

ahh, I see. I got confused by slide 14. I thought the new diagram definition
could be selected by the user as normal diagram.

So, this tooling is actually equivalent to the deprecated UML2Diagrams
functions (initialize class diagram), isn't it? Whereas, it obviously
provides lots convenient visualization capabilities.

Marc-Florian
