Re: [mdt-bpmn2.dev] Working on the ecore merger tool

Hi all,

I recently had a look at the merger tool and generated a merged Ecore
file for testing purposes. I found that our ecore file has diverged
from the automatically generated file in a lot of areas. (Of course,
you can also look at the git log for the file to see these changes.)
I also had some problems with attribute types (the ecore file that I
had generated from the CMOF file only used EJavaObject), but that
might have been due to some configuration issues on my side.

While I think that bringing the merger tool up-to-date with these
changes might be useful for future changes to the specification, be
advised that it will likely require a lot of work and manual
modification of the generated file (or special rules) might still be
necessary, as not all changes can be deducted from the specification
(CMOF + XSD) alone.

Regards,
Henning
