Hi all,

I want to create a standalone app, which uses *only* the RMF core to create a Model (programmatically) and to save it in an appropriate reqif-file.

My code so far looks like this:

//Register ReqIF in EMF
Resource.Factory.Registry.INSTANCE.getContentTypeToFactoryMap().put("reqif", new ReqIF10FactoryImpl());
EPackage.Registry.INSTANCE.put(ReqIF10Package.eNS_URI, ReqIF10Package.eINSTANCE);

//create ReqIF Model
ReqIF reqif = createReqIF(...);
ResourceSet set = new ResourceSetImpl();
Resource res =set.createResource(URI.createFileURI("C:\\dummy.reqif"));
try {;
} catch (IOException e) {e.printStackTrace();}

Actually a valid reqif file should be written, but I get instead a serialized xmi-file of the created model (which is indeed reqif). Somehow it seems that the appropriate Serializer does not get invoked. Could somebody help me?

Regards, Peter

Hi Peter,

What you did is not enough, as it will invoke the default persister (which writes xmi, as you have noticed). We have a few unit tests that write .reqif and don't even need to run as Eclipse Plug-In-Tests. If you look at them, you should be able to figure it out fairly quickly.

Specifically, have a look at the following, which is a very simple example that does exactly what you want (I believe):


Hope this helps!

Hi Peter,

without having checked if that still works, here is a fragment that I used for Excel2ReqIf conversion last year:

 ResourceSet rs = new ReqIFResourceSetImpl();

OK some findings I found out during testing:
In order to serialize a ReqIF model in a standalone app, you have to use the ReqIFResourceSetImpl. That is NOT enough though: you have to register as well the appropriate ResourceFactory to the ResourceSet:
ResourceSet set = new ReqIFResourceSetImpl();
set.getResourceFactoryRegistry().getExtensionToFactoryMap().put("reqif", new ReqIFResourceFactoryImpl());

Using an eclipse-plugin project environment, everything is well initilialized and works transparently if the plugin depends on the pror.editor plugin.
There you can use the simple ResourcSetImpl without any factory registrations.

It would be interesting to know what the pror.editor does in order to enable this transparent use of the resourceset, I haven't figured it out yet...
