The EMF Client Platform looks really promising however I was just wondering if there is currently any support (or plans to support) GMF style editors on models.

The combination of EMF Client Platform and EMFStore could be extremely powerful for our current model handling however we also rely on a GMF editor to modify our models. Is there any support for being able to continue to use this GMF editor when working with the ECP?

GMF diagram editors as generated seem fairly focused on the idea of accessing a model stored in an IFile...

Thanks

Hi,

you already mention the biggest problem, GMF is very much bound to
files. I think it expects ressources, but internally casts them to
XMIResource.
For one project, we implemented a wrapper resource, which forwarded its
calls to the actual model form ECP. However, that was quite a while ago
and I am not sure about the current state. I will ask them, how they do
it and get back to you.

Regards

Jonas

Hi,

I looked at the previous solution, but i was for a very old version of
GMF and ECP, so don't think it is reusable. A new GMF integration would
be very interesting and probably not hard to do. However, from another
post, I assume, you might not use the model explorer anyways?

Regards

Jonas
