ConvertToMetamodelAction makes classifiers private [message #626086] Mon, 25 February 2008 15:41

Hi,

In using the UML Editor for metamodeling, I find that the "Convert to
Metamodel" action in the editor menu correctly stereotypes my classes as
<<metaclass>> but it also reduces the visibility of my enumerations and
other data types to private.

I see in the action, the UMLSwitch::caseClassifier(Classifier) method is
override to make all non-metaclasses private. This is OK for associations,
but I'd like users of my metamodel to be able to reference my data types.

Why should these have private visibility? Will badness ensue if I change
them back to public visibility?

Thanks,

Christian
