devel:design:model_conversion

Generic approach to model conversion

Notation: src – source; dst – destination.

  • Convert math model of src to math model of dst.
    • Use node creation methods that can generate necessary hierarchy in dst model based on src node reference.
  • Provide a method for generation of visual dst model for math dst and use the information from visual src model.
interface MathModelConverter<TSrcModel extends MathModel, TDstModel extends MathModel> {
 
    TSrcModel getSrcModel();
    TDstModel getDstModel();
    Map<Class<? extends MathNode>, Class<? extends MathNode>> getNodeClassMap();
 
    String convertNodeName(String srcName, Container container);
    Container getRefToDstPage(String ref);
    MathNode getSrcToDstNode(MathNode srcNode);
 
    void preprocessing();
    void postprocessing();
 
    PageNode convertPage(PageNode srcPage);
    MathNode convertNode(MathNode srcNode);
    Connection convertConnection(Connection srcConnection);
}
public interface VisualModelConverter<TSrcModel extends VisualModel, TDstModel extends VisualModel> {
 
    TSrcModel getSrcModel();
    TDstModel getDstModel();
    Map<Class<? extends MathNode>, Class<? extends MathNode>> getComponentClassMap();
    Map<Class<? extends VisualReplica>, Class<? extends VisualReplica>> getReplicaClassMap();
 
    String convertNodeName(String srcName, Container container);
    Container getRefToDstPage(String ref);
    VisualNode getSrcToDstNode(VisualNode srcNode);
 
    void preprocessing();
    void postprocessing();
 
    VisualPage convertPage(VisualPage srcPage);
    VisualComponent convertComponent(VisualComponent srcComponent);
    VisualReplica convertReplica(VisualReplica srcReplica);
    VisualGroup convertGroup(VisualGroup srcGroup);
    VisualConnection convertConnection(VisualConnection srcConnection);
