I have been told to create an editor for an ecore instance. What I have for that is the model-generated code (YML-described model -> generated Ecore-Model -> generated .genmodel -> generated java-code). The root class (or model) is a seamap with children that have coordinates (e.g. buoys). The seamap-instance is already generated and filled up with children. It is then serialized in a xml-file. But now what my employer wants is an editor that can visualize this seamap in an viewer (custom eclipse-plugin) and modify the children (that are visualized with some sort of shape) by dragging them or having a property window.

I do not have a clue where or with what libraries to start. I do not even know if it has much to do with ecore/emf anymore. Any kind of help is much appreciated. Thank you.

I'm not sure if you want to build an "tree like" editor or a "graphical/diagram" editor. Right-clicking on the genmodel and selecting "Generate Editor" will generate a tree-like editor.
If you want to define a graphical/diagram editor, checkout Sirius news and articles on eclipse and eclipse modeling.

Hi Linus,

you could also use GMF ( , Eugenia ( or Spray ( to create such an editor.
