We use Papyrus for data modelling using the Class model as base. I use the UML2 API to produce specific artefacts from the resulting model, e.g. OOXML documentation and XML Schemas. While I can traverse the model iteslf, I have not yet found a way to extract the diagrams in a similar way. In an ideal world, I would be like to be able to automatically generate full model documentation including the diagrams - is this possible?

Thanks

If what you want is documentation generation from your model, you should looked at:

https://www.eclipse.org/gendoc/

or

http://www.m2doc.org/download/

Hi,
you can find an example of template in the git org.eclipse.papyrus-requirements\plugins\gendoc\org.eclipse.papyrus.requirements.gendoc.templates to generate doc form requirement model.

Many thanks both - looking at Gendoc has certainly been very helpful. In the past, I've just used the uml2 classes with the relevant EMF packages by putting them in Maven artefacts. That allows me to traverse the model tree very effectively outside an eclipse environment. I tried following the Gendoc code to include parsing the .notation resources and got that running - but that's a real pain as it needs loads more eclipse bundles packaged as Maven artefacts. I'm now opting for the more sensible route of bundling my Maven dependencies as OSGI and using them in a proper plugin project. I will also see how hard it is to get to grips with M2T as it clearly has potential but being able to use Java directly may still be better as I want to be able to, e.g., generate XML message schemas accurately from classes tagged with specific stereotypes from a declared profile according to a set of production rules - I'm assuming that may be a little beyond M2T?

Regards,

Oliver

Hi

XSD generation is in principle an M2M problem except that AFAIAA there is no decent XSD.ecore, so you are probably best doing an M2M (ATL./QVTo/....) to Ecore then using EMF's built-in Ecore to XSD capability.
