Hi lb,

Nice work on the new search component, it is a very important addition to
the MDT tools. I am creating modeling tools for HL7 healthcare standards
and the addition of search will help to attract more users. But I do have a
few questions based on my initial review. Looking at your New and Noteworthy
page (, there are two
features that I cannot get to work.

* How do you invoke the EReferences to an EClass? It looks like this
context menu is in an editor. What is the selection object that adds this
menu? I would like to add it to the contetext menu in the UML2Tools class

* I can open the EClass filtered selection dialog using Ctrl+Shift+K (found
in the plugin declaration), but the dialog is always empty. I am looking at
the dialog code but have not yet discovered what resource(s) are used to
populate the dialog list.

This last questions raises a big issue I have with the UML2Tools and use of
a shared Editing Domain. For the selection dialog (and maybe search on a
model), I would like to use an existing resource set, and not reload the
resources each time I open the dialog.
