Hi everyone !|
Here is my goal : I've got a lots of data in xml (automatically generated, i can't modify its structure), and i want it under my self defined emf metamodel.
I also have the xsd grammar from my xml files.
My problem is that i'm not really familiar to EMF and EMF tools, so i don't know what i can do to achieve my goal.
I suppose that i have to use my xsd to make a ecore metamodel, and then a model to model transformation, to get my data in my own metamodel, am i right?
Any hint or links is welcome.

What specifically is the problem?

I'm not familiar with the model transformation tools. Of course you can
always write such a transformation in Java using the generated APIs for

With enough effort, almost anything is possible.

Certainly you can deal with transforming either SAX events, a DOM
structure, or an EMF schema-based representation into your final EMF
representation. Probably the final one is the easiest to write while
the first will perform the best.
