Having the following code I'm loading a BPMN model.

// dummy URI, loading done through input stream
URI uri = URI.createURI("data.bpmn");
ResourceSet resourceSet = new ResourceSetImpl();
Resource resource = resourceSet.createResource(uri, "org.eclipse.bpmn2.content-type.xml");
resource.load(contentStream, null);


Saving the resource resource.save(null); manipulates the output and adds data.bpmn# to references:

<bpmndi:BPMNShape id="BPMNShape_StartEvent_1" bpmnElement="data.bpmn#StartEvent_1">
    <dc:Bounds height="36.0" width="36.0" x="162.0" y="182.0"/>
        <bpmndi:BPMNLabel id="BPMNLabel_1" labelStyle="data.bpmn#BPMNLabelStyle_1">
            <dc:Bounds height="15.0" width="68.0" x="146.0" y="218.0"/>
        </bpmndi:BPMNLabel>
</bpmndi:BPMNShape>


Where it looks like this coming from the input stream:

<bpmndi:BPMNShape id="BPMNShape_StartEvent_1" bpmnElement="StartEvent_1">
    <dc:Bounds height="36.0" width="36.0" x="162.0" y="182.0"/>
        <bpmndi:BPMNLabel id="BPMNLabel_1" labelStyle="BPMNLabelStyle_1">
            <dc:Bounds height="15.0" width="68.0" x="146.0" y="218.0"/>
        </bpmndi:BPMNLabel>
</bpmndi:BPMNShape>


Is there a way to force EMF not to manipulate the references?

Flavio,

Don't use a relative URI to load resources. Use an absolute URI. Where
are you expecting "data.bpmn" to actually exist? If it's in the
workspace, use a URI.createPlatformResourceURI with the full path in the
workspace. If it's in the file system, use File.getAbsolutePath() and
then use URI.createFileURI from that result.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for your very fast reply!

Actually I don't want to use an URI at all, since the model is loaded from the input stream (source is a database).
Is there a way to do that?
If not, creating a dummy temp file and using this as URI would solve the issue?

greets
Flavio

Flavio,

Then use a fake absolute URI, dummy:/whatever. Presumably you do a save
passing in an output stream, not as you've shown in your sample code...

Sorry the "resource.save(null);" was wrong I actually use an OutputStream.

I created a small test case, the references are still manipulated but are not "data.bpmn#ID" anymore, now they are "#ID".

		// previously storing the database input stream to dataFile, file looks OK
		InputStream in = new FileInputStream(dataFile);
		ResourceSet resourceSet = new ResourceSetImpl();
		URI modelUri = URI.createFileURI("d:/temp/data.bpmn");
		Resource resource = resourceSet.createResource(modelUri, "org.eclipse.bpmn2.content-type.xml");
		resource.load(in, null);
		in.close();

		OutputStream outputStream = new FileOutputStream(dataFile);
		resource.save(outputStream, null);
		outputStream.close();
		// now the file contains #ID as references


Using URI modelUri = URI.createFileURI("data.bpmn"); will result in "data.bpmn#ID" again.
The file "d:/temp/data.bpmn" does not exist.

Is there maybe some save option or hook to handle this?

Thanks for your help
Flavio

Which resource factory ends up creating which type of resource?
Presumably tou're expecting something registered by the BPMN2 project.
The factory should create the right type of resource with the right
options, but that's a BPMN2 question, so probably better to ask on their
forum.

This is the factory class used by BPMN: org.eclipse.bpmn2.util.Bpmn2ResourceFactoryImpl

Here is how the resource is created:
    public Resource createResource(URI uri) {
        Bpmn2ResourceImpl result = new Bpmn2ResourceImpl(uri);
        ExtendedMetaData extendedMetadata = new XmlExtendedMetadata();
        result.getDefaultSaveOptions().put(XMLResource.OPTION_EXTENDED_META_DATA, extendedMetadata);
        result.getDefaultLoadOptions().put(XMLResource.OPTION_EXTENDED_META_DATA, extendedMetadata);

        result.getDefaultSaveOptions().put(XMLResource.OPTION_SAVE_TYPE_INFORMATION,
                new OnlyContainmentTypeInfo());

        result.getDefaultLoadOptions().put(XMLResource.OPTION_USE_ENCODED_ATTRIBUTE_STYLE,
                Boolean.TRUE);
        result.getDefaultSaveOptions().put(XMLResource.OPTION_USE_ENCODED_ATTRIBUTE_STYLE,
                Boolean.TRUE);

        result.getDefaultLoadOptions().put(XMLResource.OPTION_USE_LEXICAL_HANDLER, Boolean.TRUE);

        result.getDefaultSaveOptions().put(XMLResource.OPTION_ELEMENT_HANDLER,
                new ElementHandlerImpl(true));

        result.getDefaultSaveOptions().put(XMLResource.OPTION_ENCODING, "UTF-8");

        return result;
    }


Can any of those options cause this?

Flavio

Flavio,

I would generally expect a #<id> to appear. But that depends on what
funky things the BPMN2 folks have in their specialized
XmlExtendedMetaData. Is there any reason you should not expect it to
appear as #<id>? In any case, the implementation of this will
determine which save style is used in
org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi.impl.XMLSaveImpl.saveFeatures(EObject,
boolean). Again, this is a question best asked on the BPMN2 folks.

For the record, this is how I solved it:

	ResourceSet resourceSet = new ResourceSetImpl();
	XMLResource resource = (XMLResource) resourceSet.createResource(modelUri, "org.eclipse.bpmn2.content-type.xml");
	XMLResource.URIHandler uriHandler = new URIHandlerImpl() {
		@Override
		public URI deresolve(URI uri) {
			// make sure references are stored without # URI prefix
			return URI.createURI(uri.fragment());
		}
	};
	resource.getDefaultSaveOptions().put(XMLResource.OPTION_URI_HANDLER, uriHandler);

	resource.load(inputStream, null);
