|EMF model to Property bag [message #890322]

I have editors for activities which are tied to EMF models. These models need to be converted from the activity EMF model to a PropertyBag (name,value) pair.
The idea is to have an adapter which understands EMF and converts it to a property bag.
The problem however there will be multiple such activities each with their own model. Is there a way I can write a Generic adapter which can convert EMF models? I also wanted to know if I can provide some meta data in the model itself which will allow the generic adapter to understand which fields of the model need to be part of the property bag.
If a generic adapter cannot be built, is there a way to automate building adapter for each activity when I generate the Model code? Again is there a way to mark / annotate the model to auto-generate the adapter code based on what fields are marked?
Note that the model is not a flat ecore.
Also is there an out of the box way to get the property bag and not have the adapter at all?

What if the property is multi-valued? I guess it would be a list of bags...

So it would be good to define a class that extends EObjectImpl or
MinimalEObjectImpl that implements your bag interface and use it as the
Root Extends Class for your model. Then any of your modeled objects can
be cast to a bag and used directly.
