RE: [emf-dev] Could the UML's tatechart model be delt with by EMF?



You are righ about EMF being able to represent your model, but generating
Java code for a state chart you will need to implement yourself. I believe
the UML2 project (www.eclipse.org/uml2) has the meta-model you want.

By the way, this kind of question belongs on the EMF newsgroup, not this
mailing list.

Thanks,
Frank.

Maybe I misunderstand something.

After I read some articles on the site and IBM's redbook. I think that EMF
may be an implementation of MOF. MOF use  class diagrams to define
meta-modle, or UML is described by MOF. EMF can process any model if there
is a meta-model to define the model.

For my requirement, If there is a meta-model(that is, the class diagram) to
define my startchart model, my statechart model could be processed by EMF.
I know that UML has the meta-model to define the startchart model.

Am I right?

Thanks for any help.

You are right that EMF only works with UML class models.

I am new to EMF. I read some EMF article/user's guide on the site, but I
feel that EMF can only work with UML's class model. Is that right?

I have a requirement.  We have developed a framework that is used to define
the workflow based on the state machine.  The definition is stored in some
XML files which include what states to go, and what classes to invoke etc.

We want to draw the state machine by UML statechart diagram(for example, by
using Rose or the tools plug-in to Eclipse), then automatically generated
the XML files and the corresponding Java codes in Eclipse.

Is it possible by EMF?     If so, I will deeply research on it.

Thank you very much!
