Hello,

I am trying to compare to models that conform to a simple PetriNet like structure: A Path has states and transitions. A Transition has a source and target State. I have attached the models and metamodel.

Visually inspecting the xmi I can tell that the structure of the models is the same, i.e. for each Transitions in model A, there is a matching Transition in model B, that is structurally equivalent. By structurally equivalent I mean that it has the same position if one follows the Path from transition to transition.

However, EMF Compare reports that the models have differences. I use a custom DefaultDiffEngine that disables ordering changes. The reason is that 1) both states and transitions are unordered collections, and 2) the order does not affect the structure.

I am missing Rolling Eyes some flag/override method to make this comparison work?

Hi Horacio,

I just briefly looked at the example models you attached and I think you'll need to implement a custom matcher that knows when two states should be considered a match (i.e., they correspond to each other). I guess the transitions should be matched by name, right?

Best wishes,

Philip

Hi Philip,

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping for a more generalized approach... but going over the EMF Compare code I think is not as easy as one might think...

Cheers,
