Hi All;

By using given types of code, I am comfortable to generate any type of
Model Object like Class, Activity, Edge, Control Flow etc.


org.eclipse.uml2.uml.Class class = package.createOwnedClass("My Class",
isAbstract);


But I am unable to add/generate the comment tag in the generated .uml
file. Due to not given any method like setComments() etc.


Please let me tell that How can I add comments in my .uml file for any
generated model object.



Thanks in Advance
Kishore


Regards,
Kishore

Hi Kishore,

Element exposes a createOwnedComment() method, or you could call
getOwnedComments().add(myComment).
Since every type in uml extends uml:Element, you should be able to add
comments to any uml Element.

Cheers,
- James.

Note that, technically, there is a difference between the owner of a comment
(which will be assigned when using the factory method James referenced) and
the elements to which the comment applies (which will not be automatically
assigned). To indicate that an element is annotated by a comment (i.e. that
the comment applies to it), you'll need to add it like this:

myComment.getAnnotatedElements().add(myElement);

It's probably most common for the owner of a comment to be (one of) the
annotated element(s), but this isn't necessarily always the case...
