Re: [isabelle] resolve current subgoal with matching premise

Never mind my second question.

Local_Theory.note together with @{attributes [a]} works as expected after I fixed a typo in my "a" (which was slightly longer in my real example).

Well, the Subgoal.FOCUS combinator gives one at least some structure

So try:

apply (tactic ‹HEADGOAL (Subgoal.FOCUS (fn {prems, ...} => HEADGOAL
(resolve_tac prems)) @{context})›)

I believe Peter's solution is similar (but using CSUBGOAL instead).

It does. I have copied it from the implementation of the
Correct handling of schematics was important in my use-case
(program synthesis, involving recursion-combinator), thus I could not
use FOCUS.

I don’t know how to generate structured proofs by a package.  I assume that it would be necessary to generate calls to the underlying abstract machine.  I am not aware that this has been done before.

For a manual proof in Isar I completely agree. However, this is just a single example of many that are automatically generated inside a package. And the tactic should work for all generated goals (whose shape depends on the underlying datatype). For making the tactic structured - also I might be wrong since I never tried very hard - it seemed that I would have to do a lot of awkward code about how many premises and IHs are there and at what positions do they fit together etc. I had at least the feeling that such things should be left to some automatic search. But of course I would be delighted to be convinced otherwise.

In this sort of situation, I would make every effort to switch to a structured proof style, when the induction hypothesis could be applied as an ordinary rule using the most primitive methods.

Thanks for the hint Jasmin!

your suggestion looks promising, but unfortunately the last "erule meta_mp" fails on my actual subgoal, which looks as follows:

goal (1 subgoal):
1. ⋀x1a x2a p y z x ya yb xa xb yc.
        (⋀x2aa x2aaa x2aaaa x2aaaaa.
            x2aa ∈ set_tree x2a ⟹
            x2aaa ∈ Basic_BNFs.fsts x2aa ⟹
            x2aaaa ∈ set x2aaa ⟹
            x2aaaaa ∈ set_tree x2aaaa ⟹
            (⋀y. y ∈ set_nested x2aaaaa ⟹ show_law s y) ⟹
            show_law (showsp_nested s) x2aaaaa) ⟹
        (⋀y. y ∈ insert x1a
                     (⋃x∈set_tree x2a.
                         ⋃x∈Basic_BNFs.fsts x.
                            UNION (set x) set_tree)
                     set_nested) ⟹
              show_law s y) ⟹
        yb ∈ set_tree x2a ⟹
        xa ∈ Basic_BNFs.fsts yb ⟹
        xb ∈ set xa ⟹
        yc ∈ set_tree xb ⟹ show_law (showsp_nested s) yc

You could try

     apply ((drule meta_spec)+, erule meta_mp)


     lemma "!! a1 aJ aN.
      (!! b1 bK. q b1 bK) ==>
      (!! i1 iI iM. r i1 iI iM ==> P iI) ==>
      (!! z1 zL. s z1 zL) ==> P aJ"
     apply ((drule meta_spec)+, erule meta_mp)
I forgot: The example looks more impressive if you add

      consts P :: "nat ⇒ bool"
      consts q :: "nat ⇒ nat ⇒ bool"
      consts r :: "nat ⇒ nat ⇒ nat ⇒ bool"
      consts s :: "nat ⇒ nat ⇒ bool"
