Mapping Priorities

Mapping Priorities

Mapping priorities are a set of mapping priority rules specifying an order of priority between sets of generator rules (mapping configurations).

Mapping priorities are specified in generator module property dialog.
See also: Generator

Each mapping priority rule consists of left part, right part and priority symbol in the middle.
For instance:

* < [sample.language/generator: *]

Left part of priority rule can only refer to mapping configurations in this generator.

Notation

Refers to

*

All mappings in this generator

modelName . *

All mappings in model

modelName . mappingName

Mapping configuration

{ ... }

Set of mappings.
An entry can be either
modelName . * or
modelName . mappingName

Right part of priority rule can refer to mapping configurations in this generator as well as other generators visible in scope (see Generator).

Notation

Refers to

*

All mappings in this generator

modelName . *

All mappings in model

modelName . mappingName

Mapping configuration

{ ... }

Set of mappings.
An entry can be either
modelName . * or
modelName . mappingName

[ languageName / generatorName : * ]

All mapping in external generator

[ languageName / generatorName : modelName ]

All mapping in external generator model

[ languageName / generatorName : modelName . mappingName ]

External mapping configuration

[ languageName / generatorName : { ... }]

All mapping in external generator

[*:*]

All possible mappings

Priority symbol

Notation

Description

<

Mappings in left part are processed before mappings in right part

<=
