Actifsource V5.8.0

Actifsource code generator for any programming language

Generic Refactorings

  • 2013/04/15: Define all old non-Java-functions-calls as non virtual

Compatibility Issues

  • Use the "Define all old nonjava-functioncalls as non virtual"-Generic Refactoring to force old behaviour for existing function calls.
    • Note: Currently we don't provide any way to force non-polymorphic calls via ContentAssist and there is no such thing as a super call.
  • Important: actifsource is now built based on '''eclipse 3.8''', we now start using JDK 7 for deploying where jarsigner uses SHA256 which is not supported by eclipse 3.7



  • Polymorphic functions calls are no longer restricted to JavaFunctions and works between all function types in any combination, lookup is done as before by name and parametertype matching
  • Range/RangeClass Support - Used can create instances of Range inorder to create a relation independent RangeRestriction, this can be used on relation (range) or in templates (cast) to filter resources


  • Cleaned up DateClasses which reduced memory consume a Little bit by no longer generating the unused attribute fields (attributes are stored in the baseclass map only if this special feature is needed)
  • Exported ModelClasses now support a method to query the required model classes to load the dependencies
  • Exported ModelClasses now support a second constructor to lookup the original resourcescope by name



  • Selector-Expressions with nested round brackets "((a union b) intersect (c union d))" not parsed correctly
  • FunctionOverrides not detected after first Level of inheritance
  • ResourceSelector/TextSelectorAspect not usable correctly (wrong start type) on relation and class
  • Notifications during ReadJobExecution in AbstractReadSession not prevented in all cases
  • Fixed Interface usage and created new interface where IDynamicResourceExtension != IDynamicResourceExtensionImpl
  • Regression: WriteJobExecution should not be allowed during notification


  • Exception Stacktrace in TemplateGenerationException


  • NullPointerException in LinkWithEditor Support
  • Fixed bug preventing ModelInconsistency-FilterPreferences to be opened a second time forcing user to restart eclipse


  • Deadlock when pressing Undo while ContentAssist was open
