[Acceleo] How to generate a sequence (bag) of consecutive integers starting at 1 [message #813218] 
Mon, 05 March 2012 01:34 

Hello
I hope anyone can help me. I am assigning numbers as names of input pins in an action in an activity diagram. From this collection of input pins I am successfully computing a sequence (or bag) of integers (instances of Integer). What I need to determine now is whether such sequence (or bag) equals the sequence {1, 2, 3, 4, ... , n}.
My strategy is to generate the sequence {1, 2, 3, 4, ... , n} by using an expression like
Integer.allInstances()
>collect(i: Integer  i <= [an expression to compute the value of n])
>asBag()
and then compare this bag to the one I computed from the input pins.
My problem is that the expression that computes {1, 2, 3, 4, ... , n} illustrated above does not seem to work.
Any idea to generate the sequence of integers {1, 2, 3, 4, ... , n}? Any idea to determine if a sequence of integers equals the sequence {1, 2, 3, 4, ... , n} in a more elegant way?
Thank you very much.
UPDATE: I used select instead of collect in the expresion and it did not work either:
Integer.allInstances()
>select(i: Integer  i <= [an expresion to compute the value of n])
I get nothing when trying to generate text from the result of this expression

Hi
Try Sequence{1..n}.
