CDO view does not start correct model editor [message #425489] Thu, 27 November 2008 13:46 Go to next message

Hi,

I am having trouble using the CDO viewer in Eclipse to start the correct
model editor. I register the workspace .ecore file before opening a
transaction and then load/create a resource. In some scenarios it
doesn't seem to find an editor and shows the root package with an
incorrect icon. In other scenarios it seems to be the wrong version of
the model editor.

How does the CDO view in Eclipse know which model editor (EMF.Editor) to
use?

Hi Andres,

currently CDO View opens a generic editor for all your models.
This editor uses the ItemProvider defined in the .edit project of your
model. If you have customized your .edit, the generic editor should show
the custom icons/labels. Is your model .edit loaded in the Eclipse
instance you are using, or you only have it as a project in your
workspace? In that case you should launch a second instance of the
workbench, so it loads your model and .edit plugins.

Have you generated you models code as CDO Native? The current 2.0 branch
does not have support for it :( But it will arrive, sooner or later! :P

If it's native, you can use "automatic package registry", so you won't
need to register the .ecore model. Otherwise, dynamic registration (the
way you are currently doing) should do the trick as well.

Hi,

Thanks for the clarification of the use of the generic editor for the CDO
View.

It seems my problem was due to an old version of the .ecore file being
registered in the DB.
After cleaning the DB, it actually works both when using the CDO viewer in
the same workspace as the model/edit code, and when running a runtime
workbench.
