Hi,
I have created the application skeleton so far with e3 and e4 compatibility layer to accomodate any e3 (in my case I need to integrate graphiti editor) or e4(for any application specific views).

I plan to use ECP with EMFStore as repository provider. (have setup environment already with release12)

I am able to work with EMFStore without ECP so far but I see ECP has components that I can reuse after extending to fit in my purpose. Need help with following;

- How can I extend ECP views (to be more precised, exact extension points better if someone can mention for E4 world)
a. Model Repository Explorer (with EMFStore) and its context menu
b. Model Explorer and its context menu
c. New Project Wizard (as I need to add pages to for creating directory structure specific to my project)

Thank you.

hi Jonas,
Well preferably it would be e4 but as I said, I can accomodate e3 extentions as well.

Regards,

OK, sorry for the confusion, I meant an e4 or an e3 application :-)
In this case, I would recommend to create your own custom application,
with your own Application model. This way, you can customize and modify
all context menus as you wish. The application ECP provides is meant as
a demo application. It is possible to based your own application on
this, but you gain more flexibility, if you have an own one and the
application itself is not much work, so the benefit of reusing it is not
big.
I therefore would recommend to have a look at the sources of the
existing demo application and create your own based on this template.

Best Regards

Jonas
