Hi!
On xtext.org:http://www.eclipse.org/Xtext/ in Video "Integration with other Eclipse tools" (0:17) the Presenter opens a file "default.entities_di..." and does some cool Cool stuff in it.
In short: How can I do that?
(In detail: Where does this file come from? Which kind of editor do I have to use?
Does
"We do no longer maintain the GMF example code and have removed it from our installation."
in the xtext-Dokumentation mean, that using GMF is deprecated and that there are better alternatives? Which ones?)

Thank you
Claudius

Hi Claudius,

no there are no 'better' options. The effort to maintain the example for
the various GMF versions was just too big for us.
If you are familiar with GMF, the code in the git repo
http://git.eclipse.org/c/tmf/org.eclipse.xtext.git/tree/examples/org.eclipse.xtext.xtext.ui.examples/contents
should give you a start.

Regards,
Sebastian
