Hi!
I want to create a graphical tool for modeling bpmn2 processes, like activiti ( http://docs.codehaus.org/display/ACT/Activiti+BPMN+2.0+Eclip se+Plugin).

Can i create automatically a plug-in project for modeling bpmn2 processes from EMF of Bpmn2?

Thanks

Sorry, I don't speak English very well Sad

I assume that with plugin project you mean the actual tool project? This
cannot be generated using Graphiti, but needs to be hand coded. On the other
hand the metamodel plugin (EMF model) needed for that tool can be generated.

We decided against generating tools because we saw the issues with GMF
tools:
- Lots of generated code you do not really know and by far not understand
- In case of non-standard behaviour you need to adapt that code
- Re-generation of partly modified generated coding is difficult and will
most of the time again need manual interaction
