Hello to everyone,

I'm modeling a room with papyrus and profiles. I've created the following types

----------------
<<enumeration>> |
 PolygonType    |
--------------- |
rectangle       |
square          |
----------------

-------------------
  <<dataType>>     |
     Shape         |
------------------ |
type: PolygonType  |
area: Real         |
-------------------


Then I created a class called "room" and I've applied a profile which has the Shape property as tagged value.
Now I want to fulfill the tagged values, but in the Shape field I can write something not defined, for example "circle", and everything goes ok because it is a string to fill and not for example a menu to choose from "rectangle" and "square".

Again what if a type has sub-types, how to manage them?

Thanks in advance,
Claudio

Hi, Claudio,

It's not entirely clear to me what the problem is. Are you saying that
in a DataType "room" in your model, having the <<shape>> stereotype
applied, you cal set the 'type' property to "circle"? In my
experience, Papyrus's property sheet presents a pick-list (as you
expected) for enumerated values.

I don't know what this has to do with sub-types.

Can you provide more details of your profile and your model, and in
which UI precisely you're seeing the wrong editing behaviour?

Cheers,

Christian

Thanks for the reply and sorry for the confusing example: I was confused too.

I'm using Papyrus Standalone 1.12.3.

I've tried to make a better example (little different from the previous one).

This example is taken from the OMG XMI specification with some modifications

http://www.omg.org/spec/XMI/2.1.1/PDF/index.htm
par. 4.8.7 Datatype representation page 20

Here there's the profile I've made:

and here the class with profile applied and the stereotypes:

As you can see the class aRoom has a shape, but I can set whatever I want in the properties value.

Again, what if my two properties "upperLeft" and "lowerRight" were both [0..1] optional? How can I distinguish them in the UML with the notation provided by the standard?

I hope I've made all more clear this time.

Thanks in advance,

Claudio

Hello Claudio,


The Papyrus version from papyrusuml.org is old and deprecated (For about 4 years now). You should really be using the current version of Papyrus, which is available at http://www.eclipse.org/papyrus

Camille

Thanks for the reply,

I've also installed Eclipse Juno with Papyrus 0.9.1a.
The result is the same, the problem persists as you can see from the UML code produced:

<profile:Room xmi:id="_FU1_gGO_EeKg7d_269-8CQ" base_Classifier="_DdxJIGO_EeKg7d_269-8CQ" shape="whatever, somethingelse, theRest&#xD;&#xA;"/>



Probably it is not a problem but the correct behavior. I would like to know how to handle it.

Thanks in advance,
Claudio
