Can UML2 profiles/models/instances be manipulated via reflective EMF? [message #627105] Tue, 28 October 2008 18:17

Hi,

I have some (potentially stupid :-)...) questions about the UML2
implementation.

I'm currently using EMF together with OCL for all modeling activities.
I don't have experience with the UML2 implementation yet.
Now, there are cases where I would like to interoperate with UML
profile based models. As an example, we might consider a repository
that accepts content standardized by UML profiles. In these cases, I
would still want to work with EMF/OCL, but then transform instances of
my ecore meta-model into instances of UML profiles for persistence.
Thus, I would like to specify some kind of transformation rules. I do
not want to generate neither the ecore based meta-model nor the UML
profiles, they are both supposed to exist.

Now I had a look at some of the uml2 plugins and found the following
resources: Ecore.metamodel.uml, Ecore.profile.uml, UML.metamodel.uml,
UML2.profile.uml as well as Standard.profile.uml

Can someone give me some insight about how these metamodels/profiles
are used in the implementation? And where I can find the ecore model
of UML?

Another question is if it will be possible to manipulate all UML stuff
(models, profiles, instances of profiles) purely reflectively via EMF?

Thanks for your help,
Marc
