Hello,
Firstly, I'm sorry if my topic is at the wrong place, or if this question was already asked.
I have developed two complex RCP applications for my company.
We're starting a new project, and I'm wondering if EMF can help us.

Here are the benefits I've identified:
- Domain model classes generated from an ecore diagram.
- EMFCompare to easily compare two models
- Possibility to generate some code from a model (using Acceleo)

But, I can see some potential limitations:
- Can Ecore model complex models (more than 50/100 classes)?
- Is it possible to extend the model via another plug-in? I see some topics regarding model inheritance...

Thanks a lot for your answers.
Philippe.

Of course. I've seen it used for much larger models.

Of course. Even cool things like this are supported:

Thank you Ed for your answer.

So, I think I'll give a chance to EMF Smile.
I'll look for a great tutorial and parse main topics in this newsgroup.

Philippe.
