Is it possible to supply a simple argument to an ATL transformation and read it from within the transformation?

What I have is a transformation query that converts some model to text and then writes this text to a file. The path to this file should be fetched from argument.

I am launching the transformation from Java. Perhaps there is a way of accessing the launch options hash from within ATL?

If all else fails I'll simply copy the same output file to the correct location after each transformation is executed in my Java code. However this is doesn't seem like a clean way to do it.

You can use a model to pass arguments. If you don't want to define a meta-model for that, you can simply use an XML parameter file and inject it as an XML model, using the XML Injector and then use some helpers to get the arguments.
