Hi,

I'm stucking at the moment at problem where I'm not sure what is the best solution. First I want to give an image overview, which is an simplified meta model:

index.php/fa/15437/0/

I already realised an GMF editor for the orange parts, which works so far. Now I would like to create a secong GMF editor for the green part. But as you can see in the image, there are some boundary points of both editors.

Is there a graceful way of combining both editors based on the same metamodel. Any examples maybe?

Hi,

does this help you? http://wiki.eclipse.org/Graphical_Modeling_Framework/Tips#Sharing_single_EditingDomain_instance_across_several_diagrams it allows to open a diagram in two editors at once. There is also a feature in gmf which allows model elements to link to other diagrams. What is your exact scenario?

Thx for this suggestion Ralph, it might help..

But at the moment I'm not sure how to realize one metamodel for two gmf editors, where each editor realize a part of the metamodel. Have I to create two gmf projects then? And wehre to store the metamodel?

You need to create a separate gmf project for each editor.
The metamodel is placed within another dedicated project.
