Hi there,

can anybody point me to a tutorial/documentation/example for the use case of employing Xtend2 as model-to-model transformation from one ecore-Metamodel to another ecore-metamodel?

I especially would like to replace some Xtend1 transformations for this purpose. Most interesting would be how to get easy access to the concrete Types in the Metamodels, without using the Java Typesystem that would require all the verbose Java API stuff like the Factories to create new model elements.

Do I need to configure a corresponding MWE2 workflow?

Cheers,
Hauke

Hi,

i guess this usecase is not what Xtend2 is made for. using the reflective api of emf is very ugly in my point of view for this - especially compared to Xtend1 Wink

The LWC11 tutorial shows an example for an M2M trafo with Xtend
