Hello ATL Team,

I have a problem launching a atl transformation programmatically.

If I launch the atl transformation manually with eclipse run as .. "Atl Transformation" the transformation runs with no error.

Using the programmatically ATLExecutor (see http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.modeling.m2m/m sg04290.html )
I get the following error in the eclipse plugin , while accessing a field in another ecore model

org.eclipse.m2m.atl.engine.emfvm.VMException: Feature label does not exist on TableInDatabase

Question 1: which launcher is used in eclipse run as ... ATLTransformation?
I think in run as ... another launcher is used.

My second thoughts are, that the program should emf register the referenced ecore model.
So I passed a second out model with a dummy.output.referencing to the ../../tool.sql/model/sqlmodel.ecore.

But still the same error happen.

Question 2: What is wrong in my assumption, how the ATL launcher should run?
Is the EMF Registration the problem?

Reading other posting, i have the impression, that the reason of the error is, that running the transformation as an eclipse plugin, the reference is not correct.

I changed the ecore model from
eType="ecore:EClass ../../tool.sql/model/sqlmodel.ecore#//tables/Table"/>


to
eType="ecore:EClass platform:/resource/tool.sql/model/sqlmodel.ecore#//tables/Table"/>


And i checked the extensions points for generated_packages in plugin.xml

I wonder, whether i could use the NsUri as reference, as used with http://www.eclipse.org/emf/2002/Ecore, but I had no success changing the EClass reference to another package using NsUri.

Actually I think during design time, the NsUri is not available in the EMF Repository.

So I'm still stuck, with the same error, that the transformation can not find the EClass in an other package.

Before the error occured. There have been a lot of warnings.

Resource for org.eclipse.emf.ecore.impl.EClassImpl@9e3110 (eProxyURI: bundleentry://1175.fwk20698484/../com.softwareag.adiwa.tool.sql/model/sqlmodel.ecore#//statements/SQLDataStatement) is null; cannot be referenced

I ignored this warnings. Actually this warning give a hint to the solution.
Other postings concerning the topic "is null; cannot be referenced" point to EMF Registry.

I checked the EMF-Registry was filled.

The root cause was following
URL f2 = bundleSql.getEntry("model/sqlquerymodel.ecore");
ATLExecutor.MetaInfo outMeta = new ATLExecutor.MetaInfo("MMSql",
				f2.toExternalForm());

The Url correctly refers to a file. But in the EMF Registry was not able to locate this model.
Changing the code to
ATLExecutor.MetaInfo outMeta = new ATLExecutor.MetaInfo("MMSql",
				"platform:/plugin/tool.sql/model/sqlmodel.ecore");


finally solved the problem.
