Hi all,

So I've got my local build to put comments into the hbm file based on the
<documentation> tags in the xsd/ecore. That's all working nicely and for my
needs that's enough.

However, in the default case you don't generate your hbm from ecore
directly, you just let teneo generate hbm from the class files that are
present. I haven't found a way to access the documentation in that
scenario. The data is present in a <!-- begin-model-doc --> section of the
comment holding the model documentation, but I don't think I there's any way
to access that at runtime.

It seems like <!-- begin-model-doc --> would be more useful as some kind of
@model-doc annotation, though I can imagine that there would be all kinds of
hassels for someone making that work.

Am I off-base? Is there some way to access the model documentation at
runtime when I the user doesn't have ecore handy? If not, then I'm going to
call this done and package it up for submission. There will probably have
to be some documentation saying that you must generate from ecore in order
to get the comments.

Thanks,

Jason Henriksen

Hi Jason,
Also in the direct case Teneo will make use of the ecore model, only it is the runtime ecore model
which is build up by the generated EPackageImpl. So I think it should work in both cases.
You can check by getting the hbm by calling datastore.getMappingXML.

I have checked in many changes the last few days. Can you check if you are up-to-date with your changes?

Jason,

In EMF 2.3 we added support for the GenModel property "Suppress GenModel
Annotations", which defaults to true. But if you set it to false, the
documentation annotations will be available on the runtime instance of
the Ecore metadata. I.e., you could use
EcoreUtil.getDocumentation(XyzPackage.Literals.MY_CLASS). I'm not sure
if that helps with your problem.

Gah!

You told me that before, and since I had set it once before I thought it
must not apply to this.
I had assumed it was an eclipse wide setting, not a per-genmodel property.

Sorry for the wasted time, but at least the comments work with a run-time
generation now!

Thanks for the help,

Jason
