(Posting this here because GEF and GMF forums are so quiet)

I've had a look at EMF and GMF for an RCP application that I'm working
on. I think EMF is great, and we'll use it for our domain model, but I'm
not so sure about the UI aspects of GMF. So I've decided to use plain
old hand-rolled GEF for the UI as I have used GEF before in another
project. The domain model there was POJO based.

If I use EMF as the domain model are there any gotchas? Any conflicts
between EMF's Command Stack and GEF's? Any examples?

TIA

Phillipus
