Java Options - Model

If you intend to generate Java code from your model, you can configure the model-specific code generation options using the 'Java Specifications' page of the 'Manage Model Options' dialog to:

  • Specify the default file extension
  • Specify a default 'Get' prefix
  • Specify a default 'Set' prefix
  • Set the StateMachine Engineering options
  • Specify the Collection Class definitions for Association connectors
  • Define additional Collection Classes - to define custom Collection Classes, which can be simple substitutions (such as CArray<#TYPE#>) or a mix of other strings and substitutions (such as Cmap<CString,LPCTSTR,#TYPE#*,#TYPE#*>); these Collection Classes are defined by default:
         -  HashSet<#TYPE#>;Map<String,#TYPE#>;
