Hi, i'm creating a tool to transform model AADL to Mast. The problem is the model AADL always refers the elements in different projects by relative URI like href="../../Plugin_Resourses/Predeclared_Property_Sets/Timing_Properties.aadl" and Acceleo standalone does n't find the element referenced.
How can i do?

This is a very old problem. Acceleo creates references while running within Eclipse where platform:/resource, platform:/plugin form a convenient virtual location at which disparate projects paths are normalized. Unfortunately Acceleo does not recreate the same environment when they are resolved standalone.

If your problem is simple enough and predictable enough you may be able to adjust the startup code to fixup the resolution.

Or you could write a tool to adjust the references.

Or you could use OCL's StandaloneProjectMap that recreates the Eclipse environment in a standalone environment.

Or, like me, you can rewrite all your Acceleo templates in a hybrid of Xtend/Java. The ability to use Java within and around your templates is very helpful. NB Xtend no longer claims to be an M2T tool since the String Template that facilitates M2T is just one of many Java++ features.
