ModelAnt 2.20 Published

  • Replaced modelPathSelector with ref.get task to be used in select, search, for tasks and exists condition
  • Replaced propertyAsListSelector with propertySelector, actually propertySelector could be skipped effectively – a shortcut provided
  • Replaced listPropertySelector with propertySelector
  • Extracted net/mdatools/modelant/utils/datatypes.xml library to hold the derived data type support macros fromĀ  net/mdatools/modelant/utils/antlib.xml
  • Unified for and iteration tasks and condition
  • Replaced iterate task with for. Now for becomes a task, instead of macro. Now the general syntax allows iteration over ModelAnt collections and a standard ANT resources collection. Migration procedure:
    • textually replace <iterate> with <for><tasks>,
    • textually replace </iterate> with </tasks></for>
    • replace the constructions <for><selector>..</selector><condition>..</condition> with <for><select> .. nested selector.. </select> .. nested condition </for>
    • remove the <selector> tags in <for>

ModelAnt 2.18 published

ModelAnt version 2.18 is published. The documentation of the ANT tasks, types and macros of ModelAnt is published in antdoc. The documentation of the java implementation code is published in api.

NOTE: ModelAnt 2.17.1 is compatible with ANT 1.7.1 and it is not compatible with ANT 1.8.x because of colliding implementations of task.

ModelAnt 2.17.2 is published

ModelAnt version 2.17.2 is published. The documentation of the ANT tasks, types and macros of ModelAnt is published in antdoc. The documentation of the java implementation code is published in api. The new version provides:

  • useful extensions of the macros and atasks syntax to ease the nesting of iterations – added iterator property to <for>, <exists>, <for.each> macros
  • Ant macros to process a model built from a reverse engineered java code (i.e. Platform Specific Model – PSM) and abstract the methods and fields as attributes and associations, this way closing it to a Platform Independent Model (PIM)
  • An example to reverse engineer the project Crazy Beans Java project and increasing its abstraction level using the macros above.

NOTE: ModelAnt 2.17.1 is compatible with ANT 1.7.1 and it is not compatible with ANT 1.8.x because of colliding implementations of task.

ModelAnt 2.17.1 is published

ModelAnt version 2.17.1 is published, now compiled with Java 6. The documentation of the ANT tasks, types and macros of ModelAnt is published in docs/antdoc. The documentation of the java implementation code is published in docs/api.

It provides slight documentation and macro improvements, including exists and for.each quantification as model conditions.

NOTE: ModelAnt 2.17.1 is compatible with ANT 1.7.1 and it is not compatible with ANT 1.8.x because of colliding implementations of <local> task.
