[EVL] Access to parent node [message #1274064] Thu, 20 March 2014 20:05 Go to next message

I have a simple metamodel defined as follows:

class Model {
  val Root[1] root;

class Node {
  attr String name;
  val Child[*] childs;

class Root extends Node {

class Child {

class Mand extends Node, Child {

I can therefore create two nodes with a reference between them. How can I, with two nodes between them through EVL, access to the parent node? I tried "Node.self" but it gives me error.. is there any way?

Thank you!

Hi Johny,

The quick and dirty way is to use EMF's eContainer() operation (i.e. self.eContainer()). The proper way is to define an opposite reference in your metamodel e.g.

class Node {
attr String name;
val Child[*]#parent children;
ref Child#children parent;
