Hello everyone,

I´m new to Graphiti and I´m facing some dificulties.

I took a look at HelpContents and it was really helpfull.

However, I can see that the examples are based in the ecore model but now, I would like to use another EMF based model (built with Ecore Graphic Editor available with the EMF Framework).

Can anyone point me the direction?

Thanks,
Joao

Hi Joao. The tutorial uses, as model example, the EMF metamodel (ladder.ecore => EClass, EPackage , Ereference etc), just because it is handy (it's available, no need to create an ad-hoc model for a tutorial), but there's nothing special about it.
You, the Graphiti user, will tipically have another model, with its ecore definition and its generated interfaces/classes say mylibrary.ecore => Book, Library, etc . Then , in your own plugin, you will (roughly) use "Book" in the places where the tutorial uses "EClass" and so on.

Hello,

First of all thank you for your answer.

So it is much more simple then what I tought. =D

However, in the sample project in the project explorer view there is a tree based model built with curent diagram. Do you know how I can do that for my models?

Thanks a lot,
Joao

Sorry, I don't understand. Could you elaborate. The sample project is the tutorial? What is that "tree based model"? And "current diagram" ?

Maybe I can help out.

The coding for the project explorer tree showing the classes and relations
is part of the org.eclipse.graphiti.examples.common plugin (package
navigator and subpackages). You can have a look on how to do that there.

It's all based upon the Eclipse project explorer APIs.

HTH,
Michael
