Hello,

I was wondering how can I programmatically know if the generation was successful or failed? I tried to embed the generate method with a try and catch but didn't work.

Thanks,
Parsa

Hi

'success' is a beauty in the eye of the beholder.

If something fails dramatically you will probably get some kind of exception, or status return.

But if your M2T programming is defective your M2Tmay successfully generate output that disappoints you. You therefore need to validate the output possibly by checking for some expected textual snippets. Possibly by invoking some validation tool.

Hi Ed,

Thanks for the reply :)

I'm looking for "dramatic" errors not validation ones. :)

That's the thing, I need to catch that exception, but don't know where! I have tried to catch it in the main method in the Generate java class but it didn't catch it. I can see that Acceleo shows a blue balloon at the bottom-right corner of the screen saying that it couldn't finish the task, but still the exception didn't throw anything when debugging.

don know, it doesn't make sense to me :D

Thanks,
Parsa

Hi

well the debugger is your friend.

You could try breaking on any exception, but that is often depressing when numerous 'normal' exceptions have to be skipped.

You could break on the dialog pop-up.
