Is there some tutorial on codegeneration customization? I.e. I have genmodel and when I click it I get all those editors/tests/commands/etc. How can I change the editor template?
I saw some generator plugin that generates validation adapter. But it looks like it only extends (i.e. adds) artifact generation while I want to customize persistence, editor code.

Eugene,

If you want to customize what's already generated you can use dynamic
templates:

http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/EMF/FAQ#What_are_Dynamic_T emplates.3F

If you want to generate other/additional artifacts, the generator
example is good to look at.

Unless you generated many editors, it's not so clear you'd not be better
off simply specializing the generated editor. In terms of persistence,
it's probably generally better to focus persistence on using reflection
so that no model-specific things need to be generated...

Ed, thanks for the reply. I'll try the approach illustrated on the link.

Yes, I need to customize the editor generation - I'm trying to create a codegenerator that can generate some specific editors from the model - I need lots of those Smile
