Jep, that's all possible, thanks to the fact that Xtext is based on EMF.|
Have a look at the docs, especially
Nevertheless, the deeper you integrate the different editors (textual
and graphical) the better you have to know the underlying technologies.
Building a GMF editor that actually writes its semantic model in an
Xtext based syntax is easy, making two different editors edit the same
model at the same time is a lot harder.
