Hello Everyone,

I would like to know the mapping of all BPMN elements to the classes in the BPMN metamodel.

Can somebody please guide me to where I can find this information?

Thanks in advance

Are you asking how the tool palette tools map to BPMN2 types? I think it's pretty obvious: Sequence Flow -> SequenceFlow, Message Flow -> MessageFlow, etc...

Thanks Robert for the quick response.

I am not asking about the palette I am asking about the mappings to the classes in org.eclipse.bpmn2 metamodel.

I want to programmatically create a EMF bpmn file with the information collected from a bpmn file in JSON format

I'm still confused...mapping implies at least two models, one of which is the bpmn2 metamodel - what's the other?
Please fill in the blank:

"I am asking about the mappings of ___________ to the classes in org.eclipse.bpmn2 metamodel."

Eg: StartEvent interface in bpmn2 metamodel represents the start event. what interface or class represents pool in bpmn2 metamodel?

The blank in your question is the BPMN elements(tasks, gateways, pool, lane, events, flows, associations etc.)

A Pool is the graphical representation of a Participant; this is also the Participant class in the BPMN2 model. Lane corresponds to Lane, Associations -> Association and so on and so on and so on...I don't know how to make it any clearer than that. I suggest you read through the BPMN2 specification first, then if there's something you still don't understand ask again.
