I was looking for a graphical Ecore editor. Ed Merks told me to have a
look at the Ecore Tools proposal.

Here are some needs (requirements) for such an editor:

1) Be able to add dependencies to models located either in workspace or in
target platform (as the Load resource from the Sample Ecore editor).

2) Multi-diagram support, navigation between diagrams and sub-diagrams.
2bis) Multi packages support with navigation in their related diagrams.

3) Diagrams serialized in their own files independent from the ecore ones.

4) GMF L&F.

5) Be able to open diagrams located either in workspace or in target
platform (ie use URIEditorInput rather than FileEditorInput)

6) Export diagrams in different image formats : GIF, PNG, SVG,...

7) "Delete from diagram" & "Delete from model" features.

8) Initialize a diagram content from an existing ecore (Improvement of the
Topcased initialization algorithm would be appreciated, eUML2 does better

9) Have the possibility to hide (or show) some diagram parts :
relationships between metaclasses by type (association, aggregation...),

I know that most of these needs are already fulfilled by Topcased Ecore

Hope it helps,
