Editing models using ModeLink [message #901092] Thu, 09 August 2012 18:10 Go to next message

Hi,

I installed the Epsilon tool in the Eclipse Juno 4.2.0.
Following the ModeLink Screencast, I create 3 metamodels (lets say A,B and C) and 3 models conforming to them.
After editing models A and B to fill some information, I used the Modelink to map some information form them into the C model.

However, I could not edit any model form the Modelink Editor.
I can edit them using Exeed in Juno or using the previous Eclipse version, Indigo.

In the forum I read msg form people using Epsilon within Eclipse Juno.
My distribution is the one from the Modelling Project, in which I did not install all components (only ATL, EMF, GMF, OCL, QVTo, and Xpand).

Having some one experiencing similar problem with Modelink and Juno?

thanks

Hi Marcio,

Which version of Epsilon are you using? Is it the latest stable version, the latest interim version, or are you running Epsilon straight from its source code?

I recall that ModeLink in the latest stable version of Epsilon had several issues with editing models on Juno. I believe these are solved in the latest interim release, as I've been successfully using ModeLink on Juno for about two months.

Could you update to the version of Epsilon in this update site, and try again?

Sorry for the trouble,
Antonio

Hi Antonio,

Thanks for you answer.
I should have informed the Epsilon version too, sorry. It is form the update site: 0.9.1.201107251201.

Now I tried the interim version: 0.9.1.201205201154
I still having some errors:

1- I property pane is empty even for items that have properties
2- I can only edit the last model opened with exceed.
Ex. I opened the model A, added some info using exceed;
Late I opened the modelink model to edit it, but
does not matter which model I select (left, middle or right) the
editing options in the context menu
are always elements form the metamodel A.

If I have just opened the eclipse, I cannot edit any model again.

There is any error msg. that give a hint about that.

How can I solve this problem?
There is some more information that I could provide to help?

Thanks again

We ran into those issues some time ago as well, and I think we fixed it around June or early July. I think we did release an interim in early July with all those fixes, but the version in the actual interim update site seems to be from May, judging from the qualifier (201205200154).

I'll look into it and see why the update site wasn't properly updated. Sorry for the trouble!

It appears there was a slight problem with the upload of the latest interim version, and you were seeing an old release (May 2012). I've uploaded a new interim release. Please update your Epsilon installation.

You should see a few new features (we've split some big features apart) and all the version numbers should begin with "0.9.1.201208". You may need to uninstall your current version of Epsilon first, since the old and new features are not a 1:1 match.
