Hello,

I have a weird problem concerning the registration of adapters.
I do as follows:
In a GEF EditPart I add:
private final EContentAdapter adapter = new EContentAdapter() {
		public void notifyChanged(Notification notification) {
		System.out.println("Notfication received from the data model. Data model has changed!!!");
		}
	};


then I add the two methods to register the adapter which it actually does (I debugged it):
        /** {@inheritDoc} */
	@Override
	public void activate() {
		super.activate();
		signal.eAdapters().add(adapter);
	}

	/** {@inheritDoc} */
	@Override
	public void deactivate() {
		super.activate();
		signal.eAdapters().remove(adapter);
	}


In a properties view I then edit the model via binding:
bindingContext.bindValue(
				WidgetProperties.text(SWT.Modify).observe(control),
				EMFProperties.value(feature).observe(observable));

The model is indeed changed because if I close the editor with the editPart and reopen it the values have changed. BUT the notifyChange method is never invoked. WHY????

Any help is appreciated!

You're not calling super and that's really important for the content
adapter to adapt to changes made to the content.

Is signal the root container of all objects involved?
