How do I generate text from models?
There are several possibilies. The solution we detail here uses ATL.
You can specify a query over your model in ATL. An example of this is available in the UML2Java transformation.
The atlanticRaster zoo is also using this technique. It first transforms KM3 metamodels into DOT models with the KM32DOT.atl transformation. It then uses DOT2Text.atl to query a String, which corresponds to the generated DOT code, from the DOT model . Then, the build.xml ant scripts makes use of the am3.saveModel task with an ATL extractor pointing to the DOT2Text.atl transformation.
