Hello,

I just recently came across GenModel annotations to specify an
implementation for an eOperation.

I was wondering if the same could be used to generate a
get*FromString/getStringFrom* implementation for custom data types?

Even better would be a some kind of complete documentation what exactly can
be done using annotations. I have only found bits and pieces so far...

Thanks, Conrad

Conrad,

On there's no support for code snippets that could be used for data type
conversion. There's no complete document (other than the second edition
of the book) of all the annotation magic either. Sorry. :-(

Hello Ed,

Thanks a lot.
Unfortunately the local bookstore doesn't have it yet :/

So maybe one last question "manually": can I specifiy code for the
get-Method of derived attributes, and if so, how?

Thanks,
Conrad

Conrad,

you can download the rough cuts version of the second edition form safari
for $35. See:

http://safari.awprofessional.com/9780321331885

IMHO it is well worth the money.
Of course asking Ed is a bit cheaper :-P

Conrad,

No. I spent a little bit of time exploring
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=216701 as a general
mechanism for being able to specify the behavior for a derived feature,
but there will not be sufficient time to complete that for this release.
