when dragging a connector the GMF framework displays a popup menu with items that can be dropped into a diagram/canvas. My question is how can i define the action that should be executed when i click on an item? Currently nothing happens when i click and release the mouse button.

in case that all your models are specified correctly the link should be created automatically without the need for any implementation from your side. If you want to see what happens here you can set a break point into the doExecuteWithResult method of the PromptAndCreateConnectionCommand class which is an internal class of the GraphicalNodeEditPolicy class. I think you need to set the breakpoint after this line of code

CommandResult cmdResult = super.doExecuteWithResult(progressMonitor, info);

If you set the breakpoint at or before this line of code the context menu will not appear in the editor you are debugging.
