Hi,

One of the rule in my model as follows,

MessageConfig:

"MessageConfig" name=ID "{"
(messageSourceConfig+=MessageSourceConfig)*
"}"
;

MessageSourceConfig:
"MessageSourceConfig" name=ID "sends (a) message(s) {"
(("via port" portname+=ID)? "to the destination(s)" destination+=ID (',' destination+=ID)* "of type" (dmsType+=DMSTYPE)* (',' dmsType+=DMSTYPE)* "managed by" (providerType+=ProviderType)* (',' providerType+=ProviderType)* )*
"}"
;

DMSTYPE:
TOPIC | QUEUE;

TOPIC:
name="topic";

QUEUE:
name="queue";

ProviderType:
LOCAL | SQLDMS;

LOCAL:
name="local";

SQLDMS:
name="sqldms";

When i write a rule in editor , im getting duplicate rule id,

MessageConfig TestConfig {

MessageSourceConfig TestSource sends (a) message(s) {

via port normal to the destination(s) normalmsgtpoic,emergencymdgtopic of type queue,topic managed by sqldms,local

via port emergency to the destination(s) normalmsgtpoic,emergencytopi of type topic managed by sqldms
}

Error:
Duplicate DMSType topic and Duplicate ProviderType sqldms.

kindly help on this.

Thanks,
Arun

}

Hi,
these rules do not really make sense. E.g. every time you use TOPIC a topic object with name "topic" is created, no wonder there are duplicate elements.

DMSTYPE:
TOPIC | QUEUE;

TOPIC:
name="topic";

QUEUE:
name="queue";

ProviderType:
LOCAL | SQLDMS;

LOCAL:
name="local";

SQLDMS:
name="sqldms";

If you want to hard code the types, it would be better to use enum rules for DmsType and ProviderType. If these types should be flexible, you would use references to them in the MessageSourceConfig.

Further notes:
-its a bad idea to have white spaces in a keyword
"sends (a) message(s) {"
shold be
"sends" "(a)" "message(s)" "{"
-the convention is that only terminal rules are completely capitalised, that way, reading the grammar becomes easier.

Hi,

you have static names so they are of course not unique if you use them twice.

but if you want to use them as enums why dont you declare them as enums

enum DMSTYPE:
TOPIC="topic" | QUEUE="queue";


enum ProviderType:
LOCAL="local" | SQLDMS="sqldms";
