I created an RCP 3.x application and intergated EMFStore and ECP. Everithing works fine until, I try to open a EClass or an other ecore model element from the Model Explorer. For example when I open a EClass node in the model explorer, it shows an almost emtpy frame in the editor area with a header [EClass], an empty tab at the top of the editor area and a tab like thing with title "Standard View" at the bottom.
On the console the following exceptions are logged:
!ENTRY org.eclipse.equinox.ds 1 0 2016-06-22 10:55:07.716
!MESSAGE Could not bind a reference of component EMFFormsViewService. The reference is: Reference[name = Provider, interface = org.eclipse.emf.ecp.view.spi.provider.IViewProvider, policy = dynamic, cardinality = 0..n, target = null, bind = addProvider, unbind = removeProvider]

!MESSAGE Rendering not possible due to: No fitting EMFFormsRendererService for View available!.
org.eclipse.emf.ecp.ui.view.ECPRendererException: No fitting EMFFormsRendererService for View available!
Do I have to register the EMFFormsContextProvider somewhere manually? Where?
I'm new to ECP and EMFStore, so any help would be highly appreciated.

can you share, what you actually want to do? If you want an Ecore
editor, you might be interested in:
If you want to edit Ecores in ECP, you will probably need to add some
custom controls, as the Ecore meta-model is special at some places.

the ECP model explorer and the editor are two separate components.
The model explorer can show the hierachy of any EMF model instance. It
does not show "files", but projects. Projects can be filled from
different sources, of which one is a file. However in gerenal, the model
explorer abstracts from files and does not show them to the uiser. The
model explorer can also show Ecore models, as Ecore is defined itself in
Ecore. Although I would say the standard case is to show a custom model
instance in the model explorer, I currently do not know any adopter
using it for Ecore. The model explorer allows to open single instances
in the ECP editor, which embeds EMF Forms for showing the attributes.
The EMF Forms generic editor is an integration into the IDE providing a
ready to use editor, which reads in an XMI file and shows its complete
contents. Therefore, it also embedd EMF Forms. The EMF Forms ecore
editor is a subclass, which additionally adds custom renderers for Ecore
and actions, e.g. to generate code. This editor can also be embedded
into an RCP application (without the model explorer).
So it depends a little bit on how you want your application to look
like. If you want to have one editor per model, the EMF Forms editor is
probably a good starting point (maybe with some adpatations). If you
want to use the model explorer, you might want to reuse the custom
renderers we have written for the Ecore editor. As the are plugged into
EMF Forms, they are pretty independant to be reused.
I hopw this clarifies things a bit.
