Hello,

I'am building an editor for Message Interfaces. The model I use is
EMF/UML2.

I have a problem with RSA (Rational Software Architect), and wondered if
anybody had something simular or has an idea what I could do to solve this.

My editor works perfectly in Eclipse (V 3.4.1), It shows the interface as
I defined:

When I run the same editor in RSA (V 7.5.0), The figure of my Interface is
replaced with an UML Class view:

Propably some internal plugin 'extends' my own UML model view and replaces
the view. I already tried using another file extendsion and Model ID but
that doesn't work.

Any ideas? Your help would realy be appreciated!

Thanks

Marcel

Hello Marcel,

Try raising priorities of View/EditPart providers registered in a plugin.xml
generated by GMF for your diagram - this is a drawback of providers structure
- anybody can easily break your diagram by itroducing their own provider..
In near future we are going to generate provider-based implementation only
in situations then it is necessary.

You can file a bugzilla request to track any future improvements in this
area.

Thank you Alex, this works great!

I use the priorities myself to introduce custom code as I don't like
messing with generated code. So please don't disable the extention points
totally!

One more question:

Do you know what RSA functionality uses these extention points?
If I use a higher priority some RSA functionality is not going to work
correctly in parralel to my editor after this. Any idea what?

Hello Marcel,

I suppose they are.

I was afraid of this.. :-)
Anyway, I have another idea – try changing .gmfgen model and regenerating
your diagram in order to make following property values different from their
default values:

GenEditorGenerator. Model ID
GenDiagram. Editing Domain ID


If RSA diagrams was generated using GMF then there can be a clashes preventing
these diagrams from working properly (see http://wiki.eclipse.org/GMF_GenModel_Hints
document for the details, search for “unique” word).

Hello Alex,

I tried changing the ID's already but it does not work.
But changing the prio is currently enough

I will try an find out which plugin in using the viewProviders extension
to see if it is important for us.

Thank you
