Flash News: Metamodels using the Metamodel architecture context cannot be edited in Papyrus 2021-09
Metamodels which have been created by using the Metamodel architecture context in the Papyrus New Model Wizard cannot be edited in Papyrus 2021-09 (v5.2).
The solution is to switch the architecture context for the metamodel to “Software Engineering/UML”. This is done by selecting the top node of the metamodel in the Model Explorer and in the context menu select “Switch Architecture Context” and in the resulting popup-dialog select “Software Engineering/UML”.
To create a new metamodel in Papyrus 2021-09 using one of the metamodel templates provided by MetaModelAgent:
- Invoke the New Model Wizard as described in the metamodeling manual.
- Select the “MetaModelAgent/Metamodel” architecture context and the preferred metamodel template.
- Do not check the “Class Diagram” representation kind checkbox.
- After the metamodel has been created, follow the steps above to switch the architecture context to “Software Engineering/UML”.
MetaModelAgent does not currently care if a metamodel is based on the metamodel arctitecture context or the UML architecture context.
