First of all, I would like to thank you all! I am using MoDisco in my master's thesis and it's saving me a lot of effort.

I just got stuck trying to figure out how I can analyse a KDM ActionElement representing a method invocation.

How can I tell which code element is the target object (the object that will receive the method call) and which are the method arguments?

In this post ( ), it is said that the KDM does not currently contain method body information. Maybe it is a feature under implementation?

I am using MoDicos 0.10, and I would like as much as possible avoid language specific models.

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,

KDM Action Elements of kind "method invocation" have Calls accessible via their reference actionRelation.
Each Calls element has "to" and "from" references, respectively giving the called MethodUnit and the element (variable, other method invocation, etc) on which it is called.
However, the method arguments are not managed by the current version.

A first alternative for you is to take a look to the implementation of the Java-to-KDM transformation (cf. the reference documentation for getting the corresponding pointers) and propose to implement the needed feature.
A second alternative is to consider directly using the MoDisco Java metamodel and corresponding discoverer.
