modelan 3.3.0 published on Maven Central

MDA Tools migrated modelant 3.3.0 to Apache Maven. For instance:

  • used Maven to build modelant;
  • used Maven to distribute modelant through Maven Central;
  • modelant publishes Maven integration plugins.

As a result of this migration, lookup the components of modelant 3.3.0 using:

group ID: net.mdatools

artifact ID: modelant{.<component>}.

The mdatools.net site publishes the uniform documentation of modelant 3.3.0.

MDA Tools did not migrate the code generation features of modelant 2.25 to 3.3.0, because of some changes in the template syntax and the internal reorganization. Therefore, the migration of the code generation feature will be completed in modelant 3.4.0.

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 from  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>
