Hi,
I'am a beginner in acceleo .
In fact I want to generate an xml file from a uml model by using acceleo but I don't know how can I write the acceleo template.
I tried this attached template but I don't know if it is right.
You find attached an exemple from my model, acceleo template and transformation rules(MARTE profile--> Castalia simulator).
Can one please help me to correct my work.
Thank you in advance.

Hi

A UML file is already an XML file so no transformation is needed.

Acceleo is an M2T tool which is good for text output but a bit mad for disciplined XML output for which a metamodel allows an M2M tool to generate what you want without worrying about matching tags etc.

Thanks Ed Willink for your quick reply.

So how can I define transformation rules from my model based on MARTE profile to my simulator (castalia)?

Hi Ed,

I'm considering using acceleo to produce JavaFX XML files (.fxml) from my model instance. I'd use M2M but I don't know where to find a metamodel for JavaFX. Any suggestions?

Cheers.

Hi

Producing XML using M2T is obviously possible, but quite mad. You will find that it is much easier to develop your own JavaFX model if you cannot find one than synthesize XML. Have a look at Modisco to see if they have anything helpful.

Hi

Googling "JavaFX Ecore" offers some promising hits.

Hi Ed,

I took a quick look at Modisco. I also checked out the first few hits out of 10,100 google results. I then narrowed the search by googling "javafx.ecore" including the quotes. Just two hits, one being this topic. Nothing promising stands out.

W3C's XSLT combined with their XPath provide functionality similar to Acceleo, albeit much older (1998 vs 2006). The first sentence along with the box on the right in this wikipedia page are relevant to this discussion. Any chance XSLT's XML output functionality could be ported to Acceleo?

If not, I may have to be mad!

Best regards,
Henri

Hi Ed,

Just so you get the full story, I started this topic before joining this one. There's an explanation for the lack of a schema in the post dated Sat, 26 November 2016 16:56.

Henri.

Hi,

Another option would be to try Epsilons' M2M language (ETL) which supports both EMF models and schema-less XML documents [1, 2] as inputs/outputs of transformations.

Cheers,
Dimitris
