same node definitions for subclass [message #234893] Tue, 30 June 2009 11:55 Go to next message

Hi,

I want to define an unique topnode in gmfmap for multiple class.

More precisely.
I have the inheritance:
A1 extends B
A2 extends B

I want to graphically represent A1 and A2 nearly the same and don't want to duplicate the top node.

What I don't want :
Mapping
+Top Node Reference <xxx:A1/nodeType>
+ [A great definition]
+Top Node Reference <xxx:A2/nodeType>
+ [The same great definition]


because code will be duplicate and as I want to do that for A1, A2, A3, ....

So I want to define a top node reference for the superclass :
Mapping
+Top Node Reference <xxx:B/nodeType>
+ [A great definition]

And To have with the palette to choose the type I want (A1, A2), How can I do that?


Is there a way to share definition node?

Thanks by advance for any hints.

If not understandable please tell me.

Hello Aurelien,

> Is there a way to share definition node?
No, it's not possible. You have to create two TopNodeReferences with corresponding
NodeMappings (the only difference will be DomainMetaElement: A1/A2)

Maybe I had to wait for that : https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=192945

Hello Aurelien,

I doubt it is helpful - as I mentioned NodeMappings in your situation will
hold different DomainMetaElement references...
BTW, it's not so hard to copy-paste corresponding model elements in EMF tree
editor..

No it's not difficult but it will be more painful to maintain.
