Hi,

I have an Element TProcessor and an element that rappresent a link
TEdge. TProcessor have an attribute type and depending on the value of
type the number of outgoing and ingoing edge( of type TEdge) is different.
How can i write a link constraint that solve my problem?

Hello Mattia,

Try link source(/target) constraint (OCL) like:

self.outgoing->size() < (if self.type = <desiredType1> then <x> else if self.type
= <desiredType2> then <y> else <z> endif)

-----------------

Thank a lot Alex! That's what I need! But know I have another problem.
The TProcessor's type is not a simple type but a complex TProcessorType
type. How can I specify the desiredType?
I don't understand how I can do something like self.type =
TProcessorType.Start

I tried: self.type = 'Start' and self.type = 0 but they don't work.

If help I post two little piece of my ecore.

This is the attribute type of TProcessor in the ecore file:

<eStructuralFeatures xsi:type="ecore:EAttribute" name="type"
eType="#//TProcessorType"
unsettable="true">
<eAnnotations
source="http:///org/eclipse/emf/ecore/util/ExtendedMetaData">
<details key="kind" value="attribute"/>
<details key="name" value="type"/>
<details key="namespace" value="##targetNamespace"/>
</eAnnotations>
</eStructuralFeatures>


And this is the TProcessorType in the ecore:

<eClassifiers xsi:type="ecore:EEnum" name="TProcessorType">
<eAnnotations
source="http:///org/eclipse/emf/ecore/util/ExtendedMetaData">
<details key="name" value="TProcessorType"/>
</eAnnotations>
<eLiterals name="Start"/>
<eLiterals name="Simple" value="1"/>
<eLiterals name="Par" value="2"/>
<eLiterals name="Join" value="3"/>
<eLiterals name="JoinWT" value="4"/>
<eLiterals name="And" value="5"/>
<eLiterals name="JoinPar" value="6"/>
<eLiterals name="JoinWTPar" value="7"/>
<eLiterals name="AndPar" value="8"/>
<eLiterals name="SimplePar" value="9"/>
<eLiterals name="JoinSimplePar" value="10"/>
<eLiterals name="JoinWTSimplePar" value="11"/>
<eLiterals name="AndSimplePar" value="12"/>
<eLiterals name="Incoming" value="14"/>
<eLiterals name="End" value="15"/>
</eClassifiers>

Hi, Mattia,

The syntax for enumeration literals is like this:

self.type = TProcessorType::Start

Cheers,

It doesn't work! If i only type this test: self.type =
TProcessorType::Start or self.type = process::TProcessorType::Start it's
always false.

Is there a way to see the value(what is) of self.type and
process::TProcessorType::Start on runtime? like a log.
Or something like an interpreter to use for testing my ocl code on my
model? Something that tell's what i am wrong.

If i i write an ocl test like:

self.type = process::TProcessorType::Start


the error is:

Expression problem:Unrecognized variable: (type)body:self.type =
process::TProcessorType::Start


and for this test:

self.outgoing->size() < 5

the error is:

Expression problem:Unrecognized variable:
(outgoing)body:self.outgoing->size() < 5

it don't find type and outgoing, but i am sure that type exist. Any idea?

Is it a LinkMapping.creationConstraints.sourceEnd/targetEnd constraitn or
LinkMapping.DomainSpecialization ?
(first option is correct).

Hi, Mattia,

Probably, then, the constraint is defined on the wrong EClass? What is
your context EClass? (the type of "self") It seems clear that the
context EClass does not have a "type" attribute.

To test OCL expressions on your Ecore model, you will find the
Interactive OCL Console example very helpful. Install it from the MDT
OCL component's examples feature. It adds a menu action to Ecore and
UML editors that opens the OCL console. A quick guide to using it is in
the OCL SDK help documentation.

MDT OCL also provides tracing options for parsing and evaluation; see
the Tracing tab in the Run launch configuration dialog.

HTH,

Christian

I think the first but maybe i am wrong. I do link mapping -> link
constraint -> source end constraint.

If i write: self.name = 'zio'

and i set 'zio' as name in my element all work!

My context Eclass is TProcessor class. surely there is an error in
something that i do but as you can see in this piece of my ecore there
is an attribute type in that class:

This is a right type of constraint.

it doesn' work. But maybe the problem is that in my link mapping the
source feature is a Connection.source:TProcess. Where TProcess is a
superclass for TProcessor. In TProcess there isn't the attribute type.
Is it the problem?

I saw that self is considered only a TProcess and so i can access only
its attribute.
There's a way to cast self into another type in ocl? If there isn't, I
can write the constraint in java, right? Optionally i can do this into
the java classes. Which classes i have to touch?

I solved using

self.oclAsType(TProcessor).type = process::TProcessorType::Start


Thank for the precious help till now!!

I have another problem, if i want to set the max number of link that an
element can have i have to write:

self.oclAsType(TProcessor).outgoing->size() < 2

but outgoing doesn't exist. What's outgoing?

I suppose TProcessor has a back reference enumerating all the outgoing links.
So, "outgoing" in my sample was just an EReference name pointing from TProcessor
to link element - there is no special "artificial variable" pointing to the
outgoing links.

How can i do a back reference like that? With an association and the
Eopposite attribute?

thank for the help, Alex
