I am trying to generate ORM file and i want to have all the details present on the entity to be added to ORM file. For example: @Table, any custom annotation, relationship information etc. Is that possible directly from the EMF model? I dont want to generate ORM annotated model and then generate ORM file.

thanks,
Pradeep V.B.

Hi Pradeep,
The orm.xml currently does not include the content of eannotations in the generation. This can be changed. So the
content of eannotations can be included as comments in the orm.xml. Can you enter a bugzilla for this with some extra
info on what type of information should be transferred from the eannotations to the orm.xml?

But.. it won't be possible to define JPA annotations in eAnnotations and then influence the orm.xml generation from
there. I mean this is a fair amount of work todo and can't be done without sponsoring/funding of this development.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for your quick reply on this. I will check what all we need in orm file and raise of ticket accordingly.

I agree with what you said about JPA annotations. Lets see what else we can do to get this working..

Once again thanks for your help Smile

thanks,
Pradeep V.B.

Hi Martin,

One thing that we can do is, generate the ORM annotated file with all ORM details from the ecore model file using XML transformation (include all the possible cases) by interpreting all EAnnotations with source = texo.orm.annotation. And then use this file to generate ORM xml file. I know its a two step process, but could help a lot.

One major work is to include all scenarios.

What do you think about this approach?

thanks,
Pradeep V.B.

Hi Pradeep,
Something your company wants to contribute you mean?
I can probably integrate this nicely so that it is one step and happens behind the scenes for a user.

Let me know if this is indeed something you want to contribute. That would be great ofcourse!

Note, that eclipse is very strict on licensing so often it is difficult to use 3rd party libraries.

And it would be great if such a xml-transformer can be somewhat generic, as I can then use it also for the code
generation annotations model.

Hi Martin,

Surely would love to contribute.. But i will need time to implement it as i have other assignments.

Is is possible for you to give me an orm annotated model instance containing all possible ORM annotations in it? I will take that as a reference and create the XSL.

thanks,
Pradeep V.B.
