This tool aims at converting KDM models into UML models in order to allow integrating KDM-compliant tools (i.e. discoverers) with UML-compliant tools (e.g. modelers, model transformation tools, code generators, etc), as shown in the next figure.
The converter is mainly implemented by an ATL model-to-model transformation taking as input a model conforming to the KDM meta model and producing as output a model conforming to the KDM models into UML meta model.
This mapping can be changed or completed easily by updating the ATL rules.
The converter can also generate a trace file of the transformation to UML and a transformation log.
To use the plug-in you need:
- JDK 1.5 or above
- a version of Eclipse 3.3 or above with the following set of plug-ins installed
Gabriel Barbier (Mia-Software)
Fabien Giquel (Mia-Software)
Frédéric Madiot (Mia-Software)
You will find a version of this plug-in in SVN repository.
Here are installation instructions :
- Import the project in your workspace using a SVN client.
- Use the "export" menu to export this project as a plug-in (Deployable plug-ins and fragments) in your Eclipse installation. Don't forget to choose the "Package plug-ins as individual jar archives" option.
- Re-start your Eclipse to take this plug-in into account.
Connection parameters to the SVN repository: MoDisco/SVN.
The plug-in also provides the user with a contextual menu in order to create models easily. By right-clicking on a KDM model in the Eclipse Package Explorer view you can generate the UML model, with or without traces (see next figure).
From a KDM source model:
We obtain a UML target model :
This UML model can be displayed in any modeler:
The bidirectional UML Association elements are not identified by the rules: two complementary unidirectional UML Association elements are generated.
