Stereotypes and Tagged Values

Postby Guest » Mon Mar 31, 2003 12:31 pm


I work with Poseidon CE version 1.6 under linux.
I am using UML Profiles and would like to ask a few questions about defining stereotypes and tagged values. First of all, when we declare a stereotype for an element, is there any link at all between this stereotype and the "Tagged Value Tab" of this element ?

There are 2 things that I would like to do in Poseidon. Now, I wonder what is the state of the art about these. If there is nothing done yet about these, then could anyone give me some advice on how I could write an extension to Poseidon in order to be able to do these ?

1- When a stereotype is selected for an element, I would like the list of the tagged values associated to this stereotype to appear in the "Tagged Values Tab" corresponding to this element.

2- I would like the user to be able to see on the diagram his stereotypes (and maybe tagged values too) attached to elements. I know Poseidon 1.6 does it for some ModelElements but not all of them. I was thinking of maybe attaching with a dashed line a kind of "Note" to elements that have stereotypes and tagged values defined.

Thanks a lot for your help,

We are working on a full support for UML profiles. The first steps have been taken. The complete support as you outline it will be part of a future (near-future) version of Poseidon.

Also, an upcoming version will support the display of stereotypes in all diagrams and for all elements. This should not take too long.

I'm running into the same issues and need to decide whether it's worth to program my own plugin.

I need two additional features:
- a set of tagged values per stereotype (required)
- possibility to assign an icon per stereotype

What does 'a very near future release' mean? weeks? month?

Did anyone else already program a plugin that solves part of the problem?

Any advise appreciated,

Have these features been added yet?

The possibility to define a set of tag names for a stereotype and have them applied to each element the stereotype is assigned to is already part of Poseidon 2.x.

Attaching an icon to a stereotype has not yet been added but will be later this year.
