[gme-users] Getting current filename or database connection string from within interpreter

We just had this discussion on the GReAT list.  It's fairly straightforward
unless you are using CrossLinks.

The rough procedure:
0. Use the GReAT Master Interpreter to generate standalone code.
1. Run the UDM interpreter wizard  (c:\Program Files\UDM\bin\UIntWiz.exe) to
create your project:
1a.  Take the defaults on the first page unless you know better.
1b.  Enter the Meta-name.h and Meta-name.cpp that were generated by GReAT.
1c.  Enter your component name (pick something), and select the box that
says "Display Icon on GME Toolbar".
1d.  Finish -- the generated project will have a few quirks.  You may have
to edit Include/Linking paths to get it to build.  I sincerely hope that
will be fixed in the next release.  Send e-mail to the UDM list if you get

2.  Copy the guts of the main() function and the includes into the
CUdmApp::UdmMain function in your UDM interpreter.   It should look
something like this (your include file and type names will be different, of

<top of file>
#include "GenSchedGen_2_ESMoL.h"


void CUdmApp::UdmMain( ... )  // Parameters

Udm::Object rootObject=p_backend->GetRootObject();
    ESMoL::RootFolder rf = ESMoL::RootFolder::Cast( rootObject );

// Add objects to input packets.
    if ( rf )
        Packets_t eSMOLIns_1;

        // transformation
        TopLevel_0 topLevel_0;
        topLevel_0( eSMOLIns_1);
        AfxMessageBox( "No root folder found (or invalid cast)!" );

I cross-posted this message to the GReAT users list (and UDM, just in
case).  If your transformation has CrossLinks then you will need a small
patch to get your models initialized at startup.  If you need to link in a
library from your transformation you will have to copy that into your UDM
project by hand as well.
