the docs describe the aspect value conversion and scoping.
Value converters are responsible for transforming a parsed text snippet
into a usable information in your model, e.g. modelInstance.getName()
should not include the ^ character thus a value converter has to strip
that off. The IQualifiedNameProvider yields the name that is used to
globally identify an instance, e.g. it may concatenate the name of
containers with the name of the model instance itself: the qualified
name of a Java class is the name of the package concatenated with the
name of all outer classes and finally the simple name of the class itself.
This post may help on the keyword/id issue:
I hope this helps,
