Hi,

Since I really need components (and maybe ports or other elements from components diagram) to be present in the palette for deployment diagrams, I decided to create a new architecture model (architecture context) that includes a customized version of the deployment palette.

For now, I added the component element to the customized palette, and it is shown when I create a new deployment diagram using my new architecture model. Nevertheless, I can not drop the component element into the diagram, but any other element in the palette can be dropped.

I've tried a lot of things: adding root rules, owner rules, and child rules to the diagram, but doing so has not proven to be successful.

I do not understand what am I missing when defining the architecture model or the palette.

Here is the definition of my architecture context:

I am working with Papyrus 3.2.0 on Eclipse 4.7.1a.

Thank you.

Hi Felipe,
the key to your problem is that you are trying to play a match of tennis using a baseball bat. Maybe possible who knows, but definitely not fun.

The key is that you are using the wrong palette in the wrong way.

I would recommend that you read up on deployment diagrams and how they are used. uml-diagrams.org is a great site and an excellent place to start. Good luck!

Hi Richard,

I really appreciate the time you use for responding to my inquiries, but I have to say that I respectfully disagree with your view.

In my project, I need to model manifestation relationships between components and artifacts. Even the reference you mentioned states that: "Because manifestation diagrams are not defined by UML 2.4 specification, manifestation of components by artifacts could be shown using either component diagrams or deployment diagrams."

I know that one can add components to deployment diagrams in Papyrus through the model explorer, nevertheless, I would like to know whether I could customize the palette for dropping them from there. This is something similar to the Visual Paradigm's palette for deployment diagrams, where components (and even ports) can be dropped into a deployment diagram.

Unfortunately, I still not able to achieve it through the definition of a new architecture model and a customized palette in Papyrus.
