Hi,
I thought i'd share something I have found out this week. ATL often returns the following error when transforming models that were defined in IBM RSA:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: org.eclipse.uml2.uml.internal.impl.ProfileImpl@ This error is caused by ATL not understanding the way IBM exposes its PATHMAPS i.e. via GMF

To make your models transformable in RSA you should have a plugin that exposes the IBM RSA building profiles e.g. ProfileBase, Deployment etc

The plugin should have the following in the plugin.xml

<plugin>
<extension
point="org.eclipse.emf.ecore.uri_mapping">
<mapping
source="pathmap://UML2_MSL_PROFILES/"
target="platform:/plugin/com.ibm.xtools.uml.msl/profiles/">
</mapping>
</extension>

</plugin>

ATL can happily resolve this uri_mapping. Also if you define your own profiles in RSA, called .epx, you must expose them in a similar fashion to above. When you do this ATL will be able to read the Profile/Stereotypes at transformation time.

Regards,
Ronan

In a related finding that might be useful to folks using ATL and RSA..

If you want to use an RSA defined UML2 Profile as an input model you can do the following, assuming you have exposed the profile using the method outlined in the previous post i.e. ecore.uri_mapping

In the launch configuration UI specify the following for the profile location...
pathmap://MY_PROFILE/My_Profile.epx

Of course you can export an RSA profile(.epx) as a .uml file but this is often not ideal.

Ronan
