How can I swap out the GMF validation to another project?

Here is my approach so far:

I created audit rules in my gmfmap file, activated validation and validation decorators in the gmfgen file and generated the code.

now, I don't want to implement the validation in the generated project, because I swaped out all my customizations to another plugin-project (which has the original project in its required plugin-ins)

I copied the diagram.part.ValidationAction, the diagram.part.XXXDiagramActionBarContributor and the diagram.providers.XXXValidationProvider to the other project and implemented the validation in the inner adapter classes and replaced all occurences of "XXXValidationProvider" in the new ValidationAction. and replaced the occurence of the validationaction in the XXXDiagramActionBarContributor.

Then I moved the extensions for org.eclipse.emf.validation.constraintBindings, org.eclipse.emf.validation.constraintProviders (now pointing to the new XXXValidationProvider), org.eclipse.core.resources.markers, org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.diagram.ui.decoratorProviders,, org.eclipse.ui.editors (now pointing to the new XXXDiagramActionBarContributor) to the plugin.xml file of the custom-project.

when I run validation from the menu bar, the batchvalidator does not find the constraints I defined.

did you take a look at EVL from the Epsilon framework. I use this for validation and it works realy nice. The only thing about this is that it does not store its information in the gmfmap model. Using this approach you can move your validation into any plugin you like.
