Hello,

I have a doubt regarding an ATL feature. On
http://wiki.eclipse.org/ATL/User_Manual/Overview_of_the_Atla s_Transformation_Language#Refining_execution_mode
it is mentioned the Refinement Mode as a current working feature, with the
last edit taking place on 19 September 2007, which is a copy of the ATL
user guide v0.7, released on 2006. However,
http://wiki.eclipse.org/ATL_Developer_Doc#Refining mentions that "This
feature is currently not implemented in the ATL2006 compiler". Is this a
contradiction? or why does the user guide mention a feature that is
currently not working?

Also, in case the latter link is just noise, I was also curious about "at
current time, the refining mode can only be used to transform a single
source model into a single target model". I wanted to know if there are
any plans on the future to allow refining a model taking information from
additional source models, or if the Superimposition feature should take
care of this use case.

Thanks a lot,

-Juan

There are two versions of the ATL language: atl2004 (the default) and atl2006.
Refining mode is only defined for atl2004, refining mode in atl2006 is
current work-in-progress. The user guide only applies to atl2004.

I guess it will only work for a single model, but maybe it can be combined
with superimposition.
