"Do I need to register the referenced ecore as part of the extension? "
When you run within Eclipse inter-model references are comparatively
easy since you have a normalising environment that ensures that
- packages such as http://www.eclipse.org/emf/2002/Ecore are registered
- pseudo-locations such as platform:/plugin and platform:/resource
exists and are mutually ../../.. navigable
None of this happens once you leave Eclipse and run standalone
Registering packages is easy, and actually happens just by referring to
Making platform: and ../.. navigation work is hard;
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=361063 is a solution.
I recommend only using http: and at most intra-project ../.. navigation
to keep things simple. You can use file: to make it work for you today,
but don't expect it to work for anyone else, or even you once code has
bounced in and out of a CM tool.
Remember that your stabdalone configuration must match your Eclipse
configuration if facilities used within Eclipse are to be similarly
