Yes, because Papyrus models conforms UML metamodel

Hi,
I encouter some questions.I will give you some code about model file generated by Papyrus.
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

  </packagedElement>
</uml:Model>

I know that node,edge,weight and guard are references,but I can not find their attributes such as type,id,name in UML Metamodel.
In ATL rules , I need to transform them to Corresponding attributes.
Look forward to your reply !

what do you mean with "I cannot find their attributes"??
They appear in the xmi you sent, and if you write an ATL rule for sure that you can access them, like

node:UML!OpaqueAction
...
node.name

Another idea: you can match for its parent type (I guess "Node") .. and then use things like oclIsTypeOf

Do you really need the id? because I think it is an internal representation of the xmi, so, if you work with the UML you dont care...


hope it helps!

If I want to tranform UMLActivity to PetriNet and I hava define my PetriNet metamodel.I want to use UML metemodel .
rule InitialNode
{
from
s:
Activities!Node(s.type='uml:InitialNode')
to
t1:
PetriNets!Place
(
name <- s.name,
id <- s.id,
type <- s.type+'+Place'
)
}
Are there some errors in my rule.

yes, because "type" is not a string

Thank you very much!
I need the type of node .Can you tell me how to modify it?
I want to make friends with you .Can you give me your email or other quick way for communication?

what about something like


rule rule1 {
from
s: UML:InitialNode
to
t1: MMOUT:NewTypeYouNeed (
name <- s.name,
....
)
}


by this way the target objet type is "MMOUT:NewTypeYouNeed"



I think it is better to continue sharing ideas an questions in the forum, more people with different levels of expertise, more availability, better validation of ideas, etc...

Dear Federico Toledo,
I am confused that InitialNode is a class element in UML mtamodel ,but it becomes
an attribute value of type attribute in model file (.um file)generated by Papyrus .
Outgoing and incoming are references like node and edge ,but they appear in node element ?
Look forward to your reply!

Sorry .. I can't help, I never see the xmi... and I think you shouldnt if you want to follow Model-driven approaches ... unless you are building a tool where you have to write the uml file ... but even in this case, you have APIs to avoid the task of understand the xmi represnentation ...

I am sorry to disturb you again .
  rule PackageableElement
{
	from 
	    s: UML!PackageableElement
	to
	    t1: PetriNets!PetriNet
	    	(
			name <- s.name
	        )
	
}
rule InitialNode
{
	from
	    s:
	      UML!InitialNode
	to
	    t1:
	    	PetriNets!Place
	    	(
			 name <- s.name
	    	 )
}

But my output file :
  <PetriNet name="model"/>
  <PetriNet name="Activity1"/>
  <PetriNet/>
  <PetriNet/>
  <PetriNet/>
  <PetriNet/>
  <PetriNet/>
  <PetriNet/>
  <Place name="InitialNode1"/>

I want to get the file is:
<PetriNet name="Activity1"/>
<Place name="InitialNode1"/>
Look forward to your reply .
