I think it's best to ask about UML specific details on the UML2
newsgroup, which I've added to the "to" list of the reply, so no need to

You need to parse the .uml file. which is in your Package Explorer.
First identify how is saved the name of the element in the xmi then just make a query directly on the xml.

I think it is more simple to query the metamodel once it has been already created than during the creation stage :p
