I am facing a problem and I am kind of desesperate :

I am trying to transform a constraint OCL into a C# program. To do so, I define my ocl constraints in a CompleteOCL document, and I save it as Abstract Syntax : POC.ocl.oclas. Then I use Acceleo with the Pivot Meta-model ('http://www.eclipse.org/ocl/2015/Pivot').

However, common OCL operations (such as 'size') are defined in another model : the Library. So when I try to recover operations used on my OCL model, nothing happened, I can only recover the operation I defined in my ocl document.

For example I wrote the following constraint :
inv pasPlusDe10Objets('Il y a plus de 10 objets dans ce diagramme'): self.DiagramObjects -> size() <= 10


I save it as Abstract Syntax under the name of POC.ocl.oclas, and when I opened POC.ocl.oclas and I go to the OperationCallExp of size, I obtain this :

> [OperationCallExp]
... > /eContainer
...... > name =
...
...... > referredOperatio
......... > [Operation] size
............ > name = size
...

So I could recover the referredOperation name inside the editor (MoDisco Model Browser)

I wrote in Acceleo :
[comment getCode() opération/]
[template public getCode(operationCallExp : pivot::OperationCallExp) post (trim())]
[operationCallExp.ownedSource.getCode()/] 
[operationCallExp.referredOperation.name/][operationCallExp.ownedArguments -> getArguments()/]
[/template]


In theory,
[operationCallExp.referredOperation.name/]
gives me the name of the operation, as we have it in MoDisco Model Browser. In reality, it gives me nothing, except when I defined the operation (and thus when the operation doesn't come from the OCL Library).

And it only generate one file : "POC.oclxx", not "Library.oclxx"

That lead us to this question : Is it possible in Acceleo to make a reference to another model (than the main one) ? And if it is, how to do that ?

I am using Eclipse Oxygen (Release (4.7.3a)) and the '3.7.2.201708211328' version of Acceleo. I also tried with Photon package but the problem remains.

Thank you in advance !

The zipped projet attached :

POC folder contains POC metamodel (POC.ecore), OCL constraint on this metamodel (POC.ocl) and the Pivot model associate (POC.ocl.oclas). Files generated by Acceleo are in the files folder.

POC_Acceleo forlder contains the Acceleo transformation (generate.mtl).

Hi

I am afraid that you have made the same mistake as numerous Acceleo newbies; totally ignored the comments at the end of Generate.java. (I have no idea why the Acceleo developers have not responded to this inevitable newbie hurdle. If nothing else Generate.java could have a compilation error demanding attention.)

If you add PivotStandaloneSetup.doSetup(), remove @generated, and (iteratively) fixup the classpath by adding com.google.inject and org.apache.log4j it works,.

(PivotStandaloneSetup.doSetup() is the standard Xtext idiom, which the most recent enhancement to fix https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=530953 has yet to support.

Hi

If https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=535665 is resolved, this kind of problem might be obvious to the user from the outset.
