Defining the Order of Priorities

As we discussed earlier, a generator module contains generator models, and generator models contain mapping configurations. Mapping configuration (mapping for short) is a set of generator rules. It is often required that some mappings must be applied before (or not later than, or together with) some other mappings. The language developer specifies such a relationship between mappings by means of mapping constraints in the generator properties dialog (see also #Mapping Priorities and the Dividing Generation Process into Steps demo).
