Hello!

I'm trying to implement a "pure" e4 ECP-based RCP application. Resource that could be either .ecore, or xmi I'm trying to open in Ecore (or Generic) Editor form doesn't get shown.
init method doesn't get invoked in partService.createPart(...) in ECPModelElementOpener subclass.
Couldn't manage how to open it neither by e4, nor 3.x methods. I tried besides mentioned above:
* http://www.vogella.com/tutorials/EclipseEditors/article.html#example with URIEditorInput of EObject.eResource().getURI() - can't get IHandlerService from IEclipseContext. I understand that it is a 3.x and e4 handler model's compatibility issue, but is there any way to get it available at least with EMFFormsContextProvider (which I couldn't find out how to access from there btw).
* activePage's openEditor - can't get activePage (Workbench has not been created yet.).

Is there plans to support usage of Ecore Editor as e4 part?

Thanks,

Kirill

P. S. Maybe i could contribute, if it is needed...

Hi Kirill,

I am a little confused by your questions, meaning, I am not exactly
sure, what you are trying to do. Are you using the ECP demo capplication
for e4? Do you want to combine this with the EMF Forms editor recently
announced? (see
http://eclipsesource.com/blogs/2016/02/11/emf-forms-1-8-0-feature-ecore-editor-reloaded/)
Both are separate things, the Editor (2nd) is currently integrated with
the 3.x workspace based on the tool platform.

Best regards

Jonas

Hi Jonas,

Thank you for the answer. I am developing the front-end for my library (latest changes uncommitted yet). It should allow to update the package registry with runtime created models and edit it's instances. Such, an end-user IDE and data integration application with dynamic-edited-API-shaped UI.

Yes, I'm using the ECP demo application as a basis for my e4.
I wanted to reuse and integrate the Generic Editor model editing functionality for XMI model resources and Ecore Editor for Ecore model resources into RCP application.
It is said in the tutorial that these editors can be integrated into any kind of RCP application.
Unfortunately, i didn't pay attention to that that intended purpose of Generic editor is for testing. And thought I could use it in production for editing XMI models and were need to edit instances of Ecore metamodels of that models.
But as long as it is not provided i guess I have to come up with my own version of Generic and concrete model (Ecore or other) Editor, most likely based on yours.

Thank you

Kirill

Hi Kyrill,

where did you did you find the info, that this editor is just for
testing? Although it is a pretty new feature, we already use it in
production. However, the editor is currently bound to the 3.x API. IS
relys on the 3.x editors extenion point as well as the existance of the
package/project explorer. So the default use case is to use it as part
of the IDE.
It would be possible to adapt it to e4, though.
Are you interested in a contribution or in sponsoring?

best regards

Jonas

Hi, Jonas

I meant 'for testing' not in the "default" sense, but in the way it used in the article.
"It allows you to create instances of a given EMF model and thereby
provides an easy way of testing a defined model."
I wanted to write:
>> ...for testing. And thought I could use it in RCP

>> metamodels of that models.

That'll be great!

>Are you interested in a contribution or in sponsoring?
I'm interested in contribution. I set up the IDE, read developer guidelines.
Should i start a bug?

best regards

Kirill
