Hi all, |
first of all, congratulations to the OBEO team who developped Sirius. This is really a great tool!
I was using it to check differences with GMF which I've used until now.
In a current industrial project, I need to define a diagram editor and customize the figures, the anchors of bordered nodes, etc., and moreover, I don't want my Eclipse app users to edit this modeler.
Is it possible to export my modeler as a plug-in as it can be done in the regular GMF world ?

Thank you for your feedback.
Concerning the second point, it depends on what kind of customization
you want to do. If you want to extend an existing modeler (like styles
or mappings) you can use the Sirius declarative mechanisms:
Concerning more complex customizations, (like extend existing EditParts
or Figures for instance) you can use the classic GMF extensible API.
