Hi,

I have a couple of questions regarding the definition and registration of ecore models.

Q1. In the example metamodels, there exist two files for each type of metamodel. One with the '.emf' extension and the other one with the '.ecore' extension (i.e., Graph.emf and Graph.ecore). Seems like both of them are equivalent. I am wondering, for defining my own metamodel, will I also have to create both types of files? Or, creating just '.ecore' file is enough?

Q2. I created a simple ecore file by following the tutorial on http://eclipsesource.com/blogs/tutorials/emf-tutorial.

Please find the attached screenshot of the ecore file. I registered this file and also specify it in the list of metamodels for target specification while creating the '.launch' file. Unfortunately, after running the following ETL code, the console output says "Type B1 not found". What am I doing wrong here?

ETL Code:
         rule basic
		transform source:UML_Input!Model
		to target:B1{
			target.name=source.name;
		}

Q1. They are just two different ways of representation, one of which can be converted to the other one automatically.

Q2. B1 is not a kind of EClass, it is a package. I can guess that ETL rules are design to generate instances of EClasses. So your rule should be something like:

rule basic
	transform 
                source:UML_Input!Model
		       to 
                target:B1!C
{
        target.name=source.name;
}


assuming that your output model is named B1 and you are trying to create an instance of C.

Hi Bugra,

Thanks for the response. I already tried using "B1!C" instead of "B1", but with no changes in the result. Console output for this one is "Type B1!C not found". Is there anything else that can possibly cause this problem?

Hi,

As long as your model is named B1 in the model configuration dialog of your run configuration this should work fine. If it doesn't, could you please put together a minimal example [1] we can use to reproduce this?

Cheers,
Dimitris

Hi Dimitris,

Thanks for pointing out the problem. The model was not named B1 in the model configuration window previously and I think that's what caused the problem.

However, I am still having issue in launching this transformation Sad. Now, I am getting a Java runtime null-pointer exception. Please find attached screenshots. As you will see, for making it simple, I used the 'tree.model' from epsilon example directory as the input and B1.ecore as the metamodel of the output. Am I doing anything wrong?

Hi John,

A minimal example [1] would help a lot.

Cheers,

Hi John,

It appears that the Name attribute of your Cla1 class is missing a type (the way I found out was by opening J1.ecore, right-clicking on the J1 EPackage and selecting "Validate"). Setting its type to EString seems to be doing the trick.

Cheers,
Dimitris

Yes, it worked! Thank you very much.
