How to Generate notation model for a domain model [message #1735083] Wed, 15 June 2016 12:45 Go to next message

I am currently working on Model to model transformation in which the target model should have notation model in addition to the semantic or domain model. The source model has no notation model, but the target model has notation model that conforms to http://www.eclipse.org/gmf/runtime/1.0.2/notation. My problem here is how to transform the source model to target model so that the target model has notation model that conforms to notation meta model of GMF which is notation.ecore. How can I relate the two target meta models(the domain and notation meta models) that I have so that the generated model after transformation have both domain and notation information?

Habtamu,

I believe GMF can automatically create a notation model instance from a
domain model instance. In any case, I can't answer this generically as
an EMF question. It's specific to which transformation technology
you're using and which models, which as GMF you're using.

Hi Ed,

Thank you for your immediate response. I used QVTo for transformation. After transformation, I have only domain model in target language because there is no notation model for source language in the first place. If GMF can automatically create a notation model instance from a
domain model instance, I guess that will solve my problem. If possible i need tutorial and I din't succeeded in finding one. Could you point me in the right direction?

Best regards,
Habtamu

Habtamu,

I'm not sure about where to find GMF documentation. Probably Google is
your best bet. Or your can look at the code that creates the diagrams
when you do it manually in the IDE.
