How to get from .ecorediag to .ecore/.genmodel? [message #139218] Mon, 27 July 2009 11:00 Go to next message

So I designed a diagram using Ecore Tools (i.e., a .ecorediag file).
Now I want to use this diagram for more than rather a visual
representation. I want to export/save/transform it into a .ecore or
..genmodel file for further processing.

How can I do this?

Thanks.

Gerrit,

if you create a .ecorediag file using the ecore tools,
a .ecore file that contains the model will be created automatically.
It resides in the same directory as your .ecorediag and has the same
name (with suffix .ecore).
Use "File"->"New"->"Other..."->"EMF Generator Model" to create a
..genmodel file using your Ecore model.

and continue with Step 2: Generate the EMF Model Code

Hi Gerrit,

If you have designed a diagram using Ecore Tools, you necessarily have
an *.ecore file that was created at the same time. The *.ecorediag
contains just diagramming and graphical informations that are linked
with your semantic model (the *.ecore file).

So, once you found the *.ecore file, you should be able to generate the
*.genmodel file thanks to EMF stuff (select your *.ecore file, right
clic > New > Other... > Eclipse Modeling Framework > EMF Generator Model)

Regards,
Jacques

Hi Mario & Jacques,

thank you two for your replies - which solved my problem.

Confusion was caused on my side as I used the function "New Ecore
Diagram" -> "Create from an existing model". I saved the generated
..ecorediag file in a project different from the project hosting the
..ecore file. I didn't expect "that old .ecore file" to change
synchronously with every edit I was doing to the .ecorediag diagram.

Thanks again,
Gerrit
