Hello all,

I am developing a Plug-In Project, and within the project I have an UML-RT model. I would like this model to be imported/replicated in the run-time instance of my application progamaticaly.

I have the code which copies the UML file to the run-time instance. However, I do not know how to copy the notation file (containing the capsule diagrams, state machine diagrams) into the run-time instance. The code to copy the UML file is below. Any help to do the same in case of a notation file will be really helpful. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

The code :

Hi. First a couple of suggestions about posting in the forum: if you are posting a short bit of code, you should use the [ code ] [ / code ] tags (the last icon in the "Formatting Tools" bar just above the Body editor. Otherwise you loose all the formatting/indentation in your code and it is very hard to read. If you are posting a larger piece of code, you should attach it as a file. See the "File Attachements" section below the Body editor.

Anyway, regarding your question, maybe I'm missing something, but why not just copy the file manually to the workspace where you need it? And if you need to do it programmatically, why go through the UML/EMF/Papyrus API instead of using the basic Java library for file-system operations?
