if we focus on family to person transformation example.
how can i do to add to new attributes to the model person when that new attributes are not ammapping any ones in the family model.

that means if i have:

a model A ( families) with 2 classes:

the class: Family with attribute lastName:String
and the class Member with attribute firstName:String

and after applying my transformation and want to have

a model B (persons) with 1 classes:

the class : persons with 3 atributes:
lastName:String from the attribute lastName of the class Family
firstName:String from the attribute firstName of the class Member
and a new attribute gender: String.

hw should i notice in a atl code that the attibute gender is a new one from scratch and had nothing to do with the model A.

thks in advance,

I don't think that there is a way to know if an attribute in the target model has a direct mapping to the source model or not.

You don't need to have a one-to-one mapping anyway, but you'll have to get the gender value by using the available information on the source. Let's say there is a way to obtain gender information from the person's name and you created a helper method for it. Then you can simply assign the return value of that method to the gender

name <-,
gender <- thisModule.getGender(
