ATL plug-ins

ATL 3.1 will provide a new feature which help to achieve ATL programmatic launch: the ATL plugin wizard. This utility first will ask you for transformation parameters (metamodels, libraries paths, transformation modules paths), like below:

Then a new plug-in will be generated, embedding:
  • the transformation modules and libraries
  • a propery file containing URIs, atl file paths
  • a Java class which allow to programmatically launch the ATL transformation

Finally you will be able to launch the transformation using the generated main, or integrating the launcher class into an existing application.

You can test this new wizard using the last 3.1 Milestone build.
