I have read (cannot find the source atm) that Edapt is able to create a metamodel migration from some sort of diff-based input. Is this true? If so, does anyone have any documentation on how this can be done?

It looks like the documentation on Edapt is fairly limited at this point to a tutorial on using the defined operations via the operations browser to manipulate and record the history of a metamodel. This is useful, and seems to be the main use case intended for Edapt, but much of our modeling is actually done in external tools which generate the Ecore file for us, which breaks that workflow.

Hi Brad,

this feature has existed before EMFCompare was updated to a new API, see
Bug: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=417343
Due to limited resources we removed the feature for the current Edapt
versions since we will need to implement some changes to support the
current EMFCompare API. The feature you are looking for was implemented
in the ConvergenceView.
Re-enabling it is probably a matter of 2 days of work. A contribution or
sponsored development would help to get the feature readded! ;)

Cheers,
Maximilian
