Hi all,

I would like to know if it's possible to integrate the Graphiti editor into a custom editor created with Eclipse RCP.

I explain, my use case is about to create a graphical plugin to modify some configuration files (text files).
And I would like to provide the same functionality as adt plugin (Android one) : in a java project, when I'll double-click on a config file, the editor will open with two tabs : Graphiti diagram and text file.

What I didn't want, is to create a new Graphiti project to modify my configuration file (which is in java project).

Before asking questions, I looked through the Graphiti's forum but I didn't find what I need to know.

I hope some of you could help me, thanks.

Yes, it's possible to embed the Graphiti diagram editor into a multi page
editor. We do have an example in one of the test tools in our upcoming Juno
0.9.0 release. With some modification it will also work in 0.8.0. See our
Git repo at
http://git.eclipse.org/c/gmp/org.eclipse.gmp.graphiti.git/tree/tests/org.eclipse.graphiti.testtool.sketch/src/org/eclipse/graphiti/testtool/sketch/editors

Using a Java project for storing Graphiti diagrams is perfectly ok. You
don't need any specific Graphiti settings on project level.

Thank your for your answer.

Now I use XText to model my configuration file. I saw there is a new framework called Spray which create a Graphiti editor with our own DSL.
But it's quite new, so I surely use Graphiti.
