Hi,

as the topic says, I'm asking myself if it is possible to save / convert /
etc.
*.wsdl and *.xsd files in a way, that they correspond to the their
ecore-models:

org.eclipse.wst.wsdl/model/WSDL.ecore
org.elipcse.xsd/model/XSD.ecore


I was wondering where these metamodels are used ?
Are they the foundation of the graphical editors for XSD and WSDL ?
Are the graphical editors GMF / GEF based ?


Thanks is advance,
Tim

Tim,

You've asked related questions in the XSD newsgroup. The models to
which you refer were used to generate an API, like the one in
org.eclipse.xsd which is used to read and write *.xsd files and convert
them to an structured internal representation for manipulating the
in-memory instances. So yes, it's possible, and that's what they're
designed to support. And yes, the editors are built on top of these
models, because they provide the deep semantic "view". The graphical
editors use GEF, but I don't believe they are GMF-based..

Hi Ed,

thanks for your fast reply. You are right, the post in the
xsd newsgroup is directly connected to this issue.

You helped a lot!
