first of all I would like to thank for the great work that has been put
into Epsilon. I am evaluating Epsilon to implement the prototype for my
master-thesis which is an editor for as specialized process-modeling DSL.
Once I finished the editor I will have to add features like
remote-database-access, Drag and Drop from a TableViewer onto
But first things first, I need to know a few things.
1) Is it possible to customize the fonts, font-size, font-color for a
2) How to I extend my Nodes to have compartments that are not other nodes
(like attributes/operations in a UML-Class)? Would those things appear in
the tabbed property sheet? Or how could I edit those?
3) Can I specify a 'constant i18nized String' that appears in the middle
of a link that the user cannot edit? (e.g. like having a UML diagram where
'composition' or 'inheritance' would be written on the specific link
instead of the special arrowhead-shape)
4) When customizing the editor, I want to add my own context-menus, etc.
Can I edit plugin.xml 'inside the 'xy.abc.diagram' plugin-project without
loosing those changes whenever I regenerate my editor? What are best
practices for customizing the generated editor compared to techniques when
customizing a traditional GMF-Editor?
Thanks in advance!
