Hi,
I am trying to write in-place ETL transformation to change UML model that consists of (deployment diagram and activity diagram) and i am wondering if the target model that will be the result of the transformation as ecore can be visualized as UML model .I know that i can generate ecore diagram from the ecore but what i need is to visualize the generated model as UML model.

Can you please help me if there is a way to do that.


Thanks,
Taghreed

Hi Taghreed,

To visualise a UML model, I'd suggest looking at Papyrus: https://eclipse.org/papyrus

Hi Dimitris,

I think you misunderstand my question. I have in place transformation to change a UML model which is the input for transformation. The output for that transformation is ecore file and I need to visualize it as UML model.

I know that I can change UML model by Papyrus but that will be manually by user hand I need to automate doing the change by transformation and that's why I need to see the output of the transformation as UML not as ecore.


I hope that my question is more clear.

Thanks,
Taghreed.

Hi Taghreed,

To visualise an Ecore model as a UML model you need to transform it into a UML model (e.g. using another ETL transformation) first as UML and Ecore are (despite their similarities) two different languages.

Thanks Dimitris,
I have decided to use EOL to change the UML model but can you please tell me how can i add new element by EOL to my model .For example i have deployment diagram and i need to add new device so i wrote an EOL code like the following:

var d: new UML!Device;
d.name="Device33";
d.namespace="m.Model";
but it did not work well and created the element without owner and i got an error says that
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: The feature 'namespace' is not a valid changeable feature

Can you please advise me what to do ?
Thanks,
Taghreed

Hi Taghreed,

As shown in the screenshot of the EPackage Registry view [1] below, Device.namespace is not a changeable feature.

index.php/fa/27552/0/

The following however should do the trick.

var m : new Model;
var d : new Device;
m.packagedElement.add(d);


[1, 2] may help while further exploring the UML metamodel.

Cheers,
Dimitris
