I'm afraid I'm not using EMF in the "Right Way", so, before proceeding,
I would like to have some comments from some knowledgeable person.

I have built mu model.

I am now building the editor for it.

I see there is a way to get a default editor built automatically and it
works (no surprise!); problem is it is a completely general editor and
not what I need (and it couldn't be otherwise).

Thus I started writing my own editor with all text edit fields, buttons
to add specific children, listeners to check when some field has changed
to update the model... and essentially using just the model and
model.impl. Then I started wondering if I am doing the right thing.

Question is: is there a way to build a custom editor leveraging on the
classes in model.edit and model.editor?
If such a thing exists I didn't find a way to do it, but it seems it
should, since otherwise all the effort spent in generating those
packages seems a bit wasted.

I am sure I don't understand something, but I'm still unsure about what
it is, so the question is rather vague :(

Can someone point me in the Right Direction, please?

Thanks a lot in Advance (and also in retrospect for all the good work done!)

Regards
Mauro

For that type of thing, I'd used data binding. Tom Schindl helped
provide EMF integration for that and did a series of interesting blogs
about it.

The EEF project is useful for that:
