How to manage icons at model generation in EMF [message #1815230] Fri, 27 September 2019 14:41 Go to next message

I have .ecore model done but I want now to set icons to the classes.

I see in EMF that there is an "Image" property in each class that we can set to true or false but it provides a generic icon.

Is it possible in EMF to set images to classes before doing a "Generate all" of the model ?

I know that it's possible to change the getImage() method in each generated java class with the annotation "@generated NOT" but now I'm look for a way to centralize the icon management.

What is the proper way of doing it ?

Thank you for your help.

It's best to use the EMF forum for questions about EMF:

Rather than changing the location/name of the image and needing to change the code to refer to that location, one generally just replaces the generated image with your own image. The generator will not re-generate an image if a file already exists at the expected location.
