Setting a tagged value with refining mode? [message #896233] Tue, 17 July 2012 16:27 Go to next message

I'm currently building a transformation chain. The last step should be to set some tagged values in my model. This should be done for a specific stereotype.

I tried to use the refining mode, but I have to realize, that the refining mode doesn't support do blocks.

My aim is to set a tagged value which represents a position with an increasing number (so I think I need a counter variable or something).

Could such a problem be formulated in a declarative way in ATL.
Here is the code I have tried, but it contains a do block. (code not working)

module postprocessing;

create OUT: UML refining IN: UML, PRO: UML, BDT: UML;

helper def: getStereotype ...

rule EnumerateProperties {
	using {
		counter:Integer = 0;
		t:UML!Property = OclUndefined; 
	do {
		for (a in cl.getAllAttributes()){
			t <- a;
				thisModule.debug('adding position ' + counter + ' to attribute ' + + ' in class ' +;
				a.setValue(thisModule.getStereotype('xsdElement'), 'position', counter);
				counter <- counter + 1;

Would be great if there are some advices. Thank you very much.

Hi Martin,
I'm not a big fan of the refining mode but I do know you can address the stereotypes in your rules. Take a look at here we discuss using the stereotypes directly as the source and target rule patterns. This should help you a little.

If it doesn't then you can of course use the ATL UML2Copy.atl, see This makes everything possible Smile
