Hi guys.

I was wondering if this was possible: I have an EMF model that looks like
this

Class A contains 0..* Class B (via feature "b")

The default XML serialization would look like this:
<A>
<b>...</b>
<b>...</b>
</A>

Is there any way to control the serialization (eg, via EAnnotations on
"b"?) such that it would look like this:

<A>
<bs>
<b>...</b>
<b>...</b>
</bs>
</A>

Essentially I want the 'b' feature to be grouped into a <bs>...</bs> in
the serialized form, without having to create a new feature 'bs' in A.

Thanks for any help!

Best regards,
Ron

Ron,

The patches in 201662

describing.

Thanks, Ed!

This is exactly what I was looking for. Well, sort of, since I'm not using
XSD but manually editing the model. I'll try the XSD path first and see if
I can make a similar ecore.
