Hi Guys

I am exercising with qvto and not sure why qvto editor reports "Modified parameter 'self' is input only" for
self.eAnnotations += object ECORE::EAnnotation{ source :=annsource;};
in
helper ECORE::EModelElement::getOrCreateEAnnForSource(in annsource: String): EAnnotation {
var eann: ECORE::EAnnotation := self.getEAnnotation(annsource);
if(eann=null){
self.eAnnotations += object ECORE::EAnnotation{ source :=annsource;};
};
return eann;
}
My expectation was that it is possible to modify self content in helper (...but not in query?). Am I missing something?

Thanks
Michael

Hi

The 'self' parameter is read-only by default. An explicit 'inout' declaration should do the trick, but Eclipse QVTo seems to support that only for mappings, not for helpers.

helper inout ECORE::EModelElement::getOrCreateEAnnForSource(in annsource: String): EAnnotation {...} 


Instead, try converting your helper to a mapping, or pass the EModelElement as a trailing parameter.


Regards
Christopher
