I'm very new to EMF and I have an Ecore meta-model and a large (350k lines of XML) model file, provided by a third-party. I'd like to be able to generate Java classes for the objects described in the model file. What's the best way of doing this please? Is there an example somewhere?

If at all possible, I'd like the generated classes to have no dependencies on any EMF classes.

It seems likely that the third party has already generated the code for this. In any case the following tutorial has step-by-step instructions:

https://eclipsesource.com/blogs/tutorials/emf-tutorial/

It's not possible to generate code that does not depend on the EMF runtime, at least not with the EMF code generator. It's possible to generate the model's API such that EMF's APIs are not visible in the generated model's API (via various properties of the GenModel) but EMF's runtime will definitely be used in the model's implementation classes.
