Hello guys,
someone know if there is a "standardize" method to know name and referenceModelName in ATL transformations?
For instance if I want create a generalize method to run a transformation I need to do this code:
transformationLauncher.initialize(new HashMap<String,Object>());
transformationLauncher.addInModel(inputModel, "<NAME>", "<REFERENCE_MODEL_NAME>");
transformationLauncher.addOutModel(outModel ,"<NAME>", "<REFERENCE_MODEL_NAME>") ;
transformationLauncher.launch(ILauncher.RUN_MODE, null, new HashMap<String,Object>(), (Object[])getModulesList(basePath + "ATLMetric.asm"));

I want know programmatically the static information in addInModel and addOutModel methods (""<NAME>", "<REFERENCE_MODEL_NAME>").
Actually I have 2 ways to do this.
1 - parse the ATL text file and extract this information (very rough method)
2 - inject the atl text file in a xmi model conform to ATL metamodel with the following code:
String outputFilePath = "Transformation.xmi";
AtlResourceImpl ri = new AtlResourceImpl();
ResourceSet rs = new ResourceSetImpl();
	ri.load(atlTransformationInputStream, null);
	Resource xmiRes = rs.createResource(URI.createURI(outputFilePath));
	return outputFilePath;
} catch(FileNotFoundException e) {
	throw new BusinessException();
} catch (IOException e) {
	throw new BusinessException();

In this case, How to manipulate Resources to have the required information?

Is there a simple way to do this?

Thanks in advance.

But surely you know these names ahead of time. The MetaModel(s) is/are fixed as your transformation cannot be dynamically picking a MetaModel. The IN and OUT names for the models are also generic so just use "IN" and "OUT".
