Hello,

I want exactly the same concepts like ENamedElement and EModelElement in
my own model (e.g. my elements should be also annotatable).

Is it a good idea to inherit directly from the ecore elements or is it
better to model (exactly the same) for my own?

Kind regards,
Bernd

Bernd,

No, it's not a good idea to inherit from Ecore. We don't guarantee
binary compatibly for the implementation classes and we don't promise
not to add methods in the future.

Ok, thanks for your statement. It will help a lot for future design
decisions.
