Running an ATL Transformation from Java [message #1220718] Fri, 13 December 2013 09:28 Go to next message

Hi all,

I am trying to run an ATL Transformation using the ATL Core API as described in

To get a feel about the process, I modified the RunTransfoJava program: it seems to work (no errors/exceptions) but it does not produce the output model.
Anyone can help?

I'm using:
Eclipse Modeling Tools
Version: Juno Service Release 2
Build id: 20130225-0426

And here is my code:
package com.greco.myfirstjavaatl;

import java.util.HashMap;

import org.eclipse.core.runtime.NullProgressMonitor;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.core.ATLCoreException;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.core.IExtractor;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.core.IInjector;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.core.IModel;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.core.IReferenceModel;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.core.ModelFactory;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.core.emf.EMFExtractor;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.core.emf.EMFInjector;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.core.emf.EMFModel;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.core.emf.EMFModelFactory;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.core.emf.EMFReferenceModel;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.core.launch.ILauncher;
import org.eclipse.m2m.atl.engine.emfvm.launch.EMFVMLauncher;
import org.eclipse.emf.common.notify.Notifier;

public class RunTransfoJava {

	public static void main(String[] args) {
		try {

			 * Paths 
			String inModelPath = "models/Example.drd";
			String outModelPath = "models/";
			String DRDMetamodelPath = "metamodels/DRD.ecore";
			String AIdMetamodelPath = "metamodels/AI.ecore";                	

			System.out.println("inModelPath: " + inModelPath);
			System.out.println("outModelPath: " + outModelPath);
			System.out.println("DRDMetamodelPath: " + DRDMetamodelPath);
			System.out.println("AIdMetamodelPath: " + AIdMetamodelPath);

			 * Initializations
			ILauncher transformationLauncher = new EMFVMLauncher();
			ModelFactory modelFactory = new EMFModelFactory();
			IInjector injector = new EMFInjector();
			IExtractor extractor = new EMFExtractor();

			 * Load metamodels
			IReferenceModel drdMetamodel = modelFactory.newReferenceModel();
			injector.inject(drdMetamodel, DRDMetamodelPath);

			IReferenceModel aiMetamodel = modelFactory.newReferenceModel();
			injector.inject(aiMetamodel, AIdMetamodelPath);;
			System.out.println("Metamodels loaded.");

			 * Load models and run transformation
			IModel inModel = modelFactory.newModel(drdMetamodel);
			IModel outModel = modelFactory.newModel(aiMetamodel);
			System.out.println("IN, OUT models loaded.");

			System.out.print("Running ATL trasformation...");
			transformationLauncher.initialize(new HashMap<String,Object>());
			transformationLauncher.addInModel(inModel, "IN", "DRD");
			transformationLauncher.addOutModel(outModel, "OUT", "AI");

			transformationLauncher.launch(ILauncher.RUN_MODE, new NullProgressMonitor(), new HashMap<String,Object>(),
					new FileInputStream("transformations/DRD2AI.asm"));

			System.out.print("Extracting OUT model...");
			extractor.extract(outModel, outModelPath);

			 * Unload all models and metamodels (EMF-specific)
			EMFModelFactory emfModelFactory = (EMFModelFactory) modelFactory;
			emfModelFactory.unload((EMFModel) inModel);
			emfModelFactory.unload((EMFModel) outModel);
			emfModelFactory.unload((EMFReferenceModel) drdMetamodel);
			emfModelFactory.unload((EMFReferenceModel) aiMetamodel);

		} catch (ATLCoreException e) {
		} catch (FileNotFoundException e) {

Have you refreshed your project after running the Java program launching the transformation to ensure that the output model has not been created at the expected location?
If yes, then there may be an error with the given path according to the program's base directory.

It was only a refresh issue, Smile.
