Primary Question: I want to copy a model file. This is, not copying the contents of the model itself like model elements, but copying the whole file as a file like copy-paste in an operation system enviroment (Please do not ask why I am not doing this manually, this has to be done in a transformation). How can I achieve this?

Secondary Question: Assume that I have a metamodel. This metamodel, (a) does not necessarily have a root element that contains everything, (b) may depend on other metamodels. As a result, an instance of this model will not have a root element and may refer to other models that are instances of dependent metamodels. If I want to copy such a model, just this model -not the dependent models-, how can I achieve this (It is also fine if the answer to the primary question solves this problem)?

Thank you.

Hi Bugra,

I'd suggest using ANT's "copy" [1] task or a custom Java class [2].
