Hi,
I tried to call a called rule without entrypoint marked in the
imperative section, but error always occurred. Actually, I don't know syntax
about how to call a called rule. If you have idea about that, please inform
me. Strangely, in the ALT Manual, there is no such syntax. I hope the author
can add it later on. Thanks.
Michael.

Hi,

Can you give us an excerpt of your transformation? Especially your
called rule and where you tried to call it. Also, what kind of error do
you have?

Regards,
Mikael

Hi,
here is the excerpt:

------------------------------------------------
module A2B; -- Module Template
create bperson : B from aperson : A;

rule APerson2BPerson {
from
ap:A!APerson
to
bp:B!BPerson(

)
do{
NewName(ap.name); -- call the rule.
}
}

rule NewName(name:String){ -- a called rule
to
bn:B!BName(
value<-name
)
}
----------------------------------------------
Thanks.

Michael.

You should prefix the call by "thisModule.":
thisModule.NewName(ap.name)

Hope this helps.

APerson2BPerson rule:

rule APerson2BPerson {

ap:A!APerson
to
bp:B!BPerson(
name <- thisModule.NewName(ap.name)
)
}

but then you should better do this (and do not use called rules):

rule APerson2BPerson {
from
ap:A!APerson
to
bp:B!BPerson(
name <- bpname
),
bpname : B!BName (
name <- ap.name
)
}

Thank you very much. The problem is gone. I got the following output.
However, the generated file has specified the metamodel location. And each
time I have to manually add the metamodel location. It is not convenient. Do
you know how to automatically generate the metamodel location?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<xmi:XMI xmi:version="2.0" xmlns:xmi="http://www.omg.org/XMI"
xmlns:TargetModel="http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/my25">
<TargetModel:BPerson name="/1"/>
<TargetModel:BName value="Michael"/>
</xmi:XMI>
Thanks.
Best regards.
Michael.

xmlns:TargetModel="http://www.macs.hw.ac.uk/my25" is not defined
automatically in the output of the transformation and that you have set
it by hand? Can you paste here what you have as an output and what you
expected? Thanks.

Hi,

The schemaLocation is an option to pass to the save() method of a
resource and ATL does not specify it by default. You should add it
manually as you do or modify some source code of ATL.
Another solution is to register your metamodel in the EMF registry.
There is an contextual action that is provided by the AM3 project
(http://www.eclipse.org/gmt/am3/). You can right click on a .ecore file
and select "Register metamodel". Then you will be able to use the ecore
reflective editor to edit your model. Don't forget to re-register your
metamodel each time you modify it.

Hope this helps.

Best regards,
Mikael
