[QVTo] Execute .qvto transformations from MWE [message #106153] Sun, 07 June 2009 15:45 Go to next message

I am looking for a WorkflowComponent implementation for executing .qvto
transformation from .mwe scripts (Eclipse EMFT Modeling Workflow Engine).
Do you know any such implementation? If not, some directions how to write
one would be wonderful.

Thanks,

Ioan

Hi Ioan,

The M2M/QVT Operational component does not implement any support for
integration with EMFT Modeling Workflow and
I'm not aware that some does.

Concerning QVT, you might want to look at the link bellow for learning how
to call a transformation programmatically:
http://dev.eclipse.org/viewcvs/index.cgi/org.eclipse.m2m/org .eclipse.m2m.qvt.oml/examples/org.eclipse.m2m.qvt.oml.econ20 09.tutorial/projects/qvto.ecore2uml.invoke/src/qvto/ecore2um l/invoke/ConvertEcore2UML.java?root=Modeling_Project&vie w=markup

I assume, there is a mechanism to hook your transf. invocation into the
workflow but
better to ask at eclipse.technology.emft.

Regards,
/Radek

Hi Radek,
Thanks for your help. The code you wrote is working fine from Action
but when I try to run from WME or run as Java Application ( main() ) I get
following Exception:


Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError

Apparently, inside of UnitResolverFactory, QVTo is trying to access
Extension Registry but pluginRegistry is null.


private List<UnitResolverFactory> readFactories() {
ArrayList<UnitResolverFactory> factoryEntries = new
ArrayList<UnitResolverFactory>();
IExtensionRegistry pluginRegistry = Platform.getExtensionRegistry();
IExtensionPoint extensionPoint =
pluginRegistry.getExtensionPoint(POINT_ID);

Ioan

Hi Ioan,

In case you are trying to run standalone (no Eclipse),
the bad news is that QVTo does not support this yet, though you can
use a headless eclipse application.

However, the good news is that we plan to support that in early milestones
of the next release.

Obviously, we should have handled such a situation gracefully, check for
the extension
registry availability and drop an explaining message.
Sorry for not clearly manifesting this limitation, the doc material is
always behind
the implementation due to lack of resources ;(.
We will improve that just after the Galileo release.

Regards,
/Radek

Hi Radek,
For now, I just created a Command that executes the MWE script and I am
OK with this workaround. Basically, instead of using default launcher "Run
As/MWE Workflow", I am using a Custom Command which invokes
programmatically MWE script.

Thanks,

Ioan

Hi Radek,

What should I change in your sample to generate the trace model as well?

Thanks,

Ioan

Hi Ioan,

Unfortunately, the current invocation API does not give you access to
traces.
The trace meta-model is still internal, though we could support the trace
serialization
at a user provided URI. Will be solved by
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=282645.

If it's essential to your application and you need to stick to the
released QVTo 2.0.0, you could
use a custom transf. executor class based on the #282645 resolution.

Regards,
/Radek

Actually I tried the same, until my try failed due to the same exception "ExceptionInInitializerError" as in Ioan's example.

Are there any updates from the release plan? Is it still planned to support the standalone invokation of the transformation?

Thanks,
Christoph

Hi Christoph,

We have done a great progress in Eclipse dependency cleanup, but need to
complete
the blackbox support outside Eclipse. Also, it still requires
some extra testing.
Yes, it's still planned.
