MARTE NFP Types and static profile generation [message #662979] Fri, 01 April 2011 17:28 Go to next message

Hi all,

I am trying to generate a static version of our profile which uses Papyrus MARTE. In our profile we have some tags typed with predefined MARTE NFP types, e.g. NFP_Real.

So NFP types are defined in MARTE profile.

However when I generate code from our genmodel I have compilation errors for these types. In fact I have seen that in MARTE java generated code NFP types do not exist, they have been replaced by String type.

Should I remove all the references to NFP types from my profile? Do you know if there is a better way to manage this problem?

Thanks for the support.

Dear Stefano,

you should not replace the NFP types with strings, since you would loose type information, i.e. the ability to enter syntactically correct expressions via the xtext based stereotype editor.

We use a patched variant of the org.eclipse.uml2.uml plugin to convert NFP data types to strings during the UML to ecore conversion. When you create the genmodel from the ecore file, make sure to reference the MARTE genmodel to avoid a re-generation of MARTE elements.

The patch is in the file, method "boolean isEDataType(Namespace namespace)"

public Boolean caseDataType(DataType dataType) {
// Chokri modif
return Boolean.FALSE;
} .

See below the code generated for an example of a stereotype, called FlowWCET having an attribute of type NFP_Duration. In the generated comments, you see that it is in fact an NFP_Duration on the model level, but the Java type is a String.

Please note that the generated impl classes have some references to classes of the static MARTE profile, i.e. you have to declare a dependency to the static profile in your plugin.

Best regards


public interface FlowWCET extends EObject {
* Returns the value of the '<em><b>WCET</b></em>' attribute.
* @return the value of the '<em>WCET</em>' attribute.
* @see #setWCET(String)
* @see SCM.SCMPackage#getFlowWCET_WCET()
* @model unique="false" dataType="org.eclipse.papyrus.MARTE_Library.BasicNFP_Types.NFP_Duration" required="true" ordered="false"
* @generated
String getWCET();
