Hello,

I added the eclipse.technology.emft group to the "to" list because
I found a message form Martin Taal that seems related to the topic:
http://dev.eclipse.org/newslists/news.eclipse.tools.emf/msg1 9765.html
@Martin Taal: Did you make any progess in the system mentioned
in that message?

That really sounds promising. I don't know much about Eclipse/EMF
development procedures. Does component proposal mean there will
be a EMFT subproject soon?
In what timeframe one could expect first "public beta" code?

I don't understand this ... can you give me a link to where this is
explained in more detail?
Is this described somewhere in the EMF book? Are you talking
about specifying the method body with Java?

I was thinking about an AJAX framework similar to the EMF.edit and
EMF.editor code.
The HTML and JavaScript code for the client side, the code that
does the communication between the user and the server and updates
the model on the server according to user input and persists the model
(using Hibernat/Teneo) could be generated from an EMF model
(at least parts of it).

Does this make sense? Anybody with expierience in building a
web application using EMF?

Regards,

Reinhold
