Updating a diagram after saving its business model to database [message #900208] Sun, 05 August 2012 11:19 Go to next message

In my case, each business object (Task) associated with a node in a diagram have unique "ID" and "Name".

When a diagram is created "Name" of a node is given by the user. For example nodes A - E in the diagram shown below.


When the diagram is saved (using save toolbar button), business objects (Tasks) will be saved into a database. "ID" of all the saved nodes will be generated at database and will be returned by the "save" operation.

My question is now, How to update the "ID" of the curresponding business objects in the diagram?.

Any pointers will be highly appreciated.

I use the following code in "doSave" method of editor and got the following exceptions.

public void doSave(IProgressMonitor monitor) {
try {
   for (int i = 0; i < diag.getLink().getBusinessObjects().size(); i++) {
	EObject eobj =  diag.getLink().getBusinessObjects().get(i);
	if(eobj instanceof Task){
	   Task task = (Task) eobj;
	   if(task.getMcTaskId() == null){
	     task.setMcTaskId(/*ID received from database*/);
} catch (RuntimeException e) {

Following exception occurs!!!

You will need to wrap any model modification code into a command running on
the command stack of the editor's TransactionalEditingDomain, because
Graphiti uses EMF Transactions under the hoods.
