Hi,

I'm experimenting with EMF BinaryResource serialization, and I was wondering: is there any specification/documentation somewhere of how this binary format works?

For instance XMI is standardized, so there is a full spec, but is there something similar for the serialization format of BinaryResource?

No, binary resource format is home grown so you should not expect to be able to consume such bytes with anything other than the library provided by EMF, and anyone wanting to replicate such logic will have to look in detail at the implementation (which is relatively simple, especially compared to XML/XMI serialization and deserialization).

OK, then the only spec at the moment is the code. I suppose such spec must have existed at some point in the office of the developer of BinaryResource, too bad it wasn't made public.

thanks for the answer!

I'm the developer and I assure you that no such document even existed.
