we are using generics in our EMF model. In the generated EMF editor, all objects of our model can be added as child elements even if the definition of the generic inheritance would restrict it to a small number of elements.

I found a similar entry in the forum (see topic) but could not find the mentioned bugzilla entry.
Is there already a solution ?

How to reproduce (Xcore):
package genericsdemo

abstract class A1 {}
class A1C1 extends A1 {}
class A1C2 extends A1 {}

abstract class A2 {}
class A2C1 extends A2 {}
class A2C2 extends A2 {}

class Model {
	contains MyCollection<A1> a1
	contains MyCollection<A2> a2

class MyCollection<T> {
	contains MyEntry<T>[] entries

class MyEntry<T> {
	String name
	contains T[] items

No, there is no generic solution. A MyEntry instance could be contained anywhere and in arbitrary context "items" it can contain any arbitrary instances. The new child descriptors logic in the generate item providers are not designed to "context sensitive".
