does lazy rules from clause works? [message #987896] Wed, 28 November 2012 15:01 Go to next message

Hello to everyone,

I have a question about lazy rules, because the manual is quite synthetic about them.
I would like to know when the from clause is evaluated.
i.e. I make a call to a lazy rule in a matched rule in this way:

rule main {

m: UML!Model,
s: UML!Class ( = 'model')
container1 : UML!Model
name<- 'graphModel',
packagedElement <-

lazy rule host {

source : UML!Class (source.hasStereotype('lanprofile::Router'))

target : UML!Class
name <- 'nodo_router'

why the from clause in the lazy is not evaluated? (it was created target UML!Classes also for that source Classes that don't respect the condition in the round brackets) And, if this behaviour is correct, in which case the from clause make sense for lazy rules?

Thanks in advance,

The initial philosophy behind lazy (matched) rules is to be able to specify when matched rules are actually called.
Thus lazy rules should not have guard conditions, and the filtering should be done on the call:
packagedElement <- if s.hasStereotype('lanprofile::Router') then
                         OclUndefined -- or something else
