Hi Guys,

I am new to Graphiti and currently I am planning to develop an editor for a domain model, which I acquire via transformation (ATL/M2M). So I want the editor to display an existing model and then enable also the user to make further changes to this model in the editor. But the initial model (Business Object) should be loaded up front.

Is this possible, assuming that I build a corresponding Graphiti Editor for my domain based on the same classes as my EMF for this domain? If yes, what are the steps I need to take?

Any input would be highly appreciated!

Thanks and Best Regards,
Armands

Armands,

the easiest way would probably be to provide some functionality (create
diagram or something similar) that creates a new Graphiti diagram and
populates it with the needed domain objects. An example is available in the
final tutorial plugin in the SDK download, it adds a context menu entry for
creating a new diagram containing all classes of the project.

You can check out the classes in this package
http://git.eclipse.org/c/gmp/org.eclipse.gmp.graphiti.git/tree/examples/org.eclipse.graphiti.examples.tutorial/src/org/eclipse/graphiti/examples/tutorial/handlers
