When creating a new representation file by means of the wizard, it is only possible to initialize the representation from one semantic resource.

I tested the possibility to put more than one semantic resource in a same representation file to point on two semantic models (build from the same DSL) having entities referencing each other. Everything seems to go well. Maybe I could encounter problem with containment references.

My version of Sirius is 5.0.1 on Oxygen

My question is : why does the wizard limit initialization of representation files to only one semantic resource ? What did I miss ?

Hi Eric,

The "New representation file" wizard allows you to init a Sirius session on one semantic resource, then you can add additional resources as semantic resources of your session thanks to the "Add model" menu on the .aird file : it will show you a wizard with two choices: create a new model file or reference an existing one.

Note that the recommended way would be to create a Modeling Project (with the corresponding wizard) and then create or put you semantic resources in it (it will detect, load and add EMF models as semantic resource of the project's representations file). You can also use the "Configure > Add the Modeling Project nature" menu on the project to convert your project into a modeling project.
