Is this possible with EMFCompare? [message #621876] Wed, 02 December 2009 16:25 Go to next message

Hello All,

I want to compare 2 xmi files and make a delta(attributes added/deleted etc) of it.

Is it possible to use EMF Compare for this in standalone?

I checked the code from the CVS , but I only manage to get the match Model from it when I load 2 UML models? But I didn't manage to load only the 2 xmi's in it . I always get an exception.

What is exactly needed to compare 2 xmi's via EMF Compare ? Do I need to give up also the UML's or is it enough to give only the xmi's ?

Also in the standalone version there is some comment:
// Register additionnal packages here. For UML2 for instance :

But how can I do this for loading xmi , what is the code for this?

Also can I serialize the Diffmodel for example with eg JAXB ?Or how can I do this . I want to make Java object eg DiffModel from this delta?

Many thanks

Randi

EMF Compare is tested to be usable in standalone mode. Check out the
org.eclipse.emf.compare.example.standalone project from the CVS for an
example of how to do it.

Without the exception and its trace, can't say much. Though loading UML
models with xmi extension is somewhat of a bad idea; EMF detects the
file contains UML and does the necessary arrangements according to the
file extension. Not sure if this applies to standalone loading though.

I do not understand this. What is your xmi file if it is not your UML model?

see
http://wiki.eclipse.org/MDT/UML2/FAQ#What.27s_required_to_lo ad_a_UML_.28.uml.29_resource_from_a_standalone_application.3 F
replacing the UML extension by "xmi"; not sure if this will work as
expected.

look at the standalone example. How you serialize the model is you call;
be it through the standard EMF "Resource#save()" or some other mean.
