The EMFStore file transfer feature looks pretty interesting, and I think
it could be useful to implement a couple use cases that need file
synchronization.

1. Are there any plans to surface file transfer functions through the
external API?
2. If not, can I still expect these functions to remain supported as
part of the EMFStore internal API in the future?

Hi Scott,

sorry for the late answer, I somehow missed this one. To answer your
questions:

1. Yes, sooner or later we'll expose the file API. We do not yet know
when this will happen, but I've created a BR:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=424412

2. Yes, these functions will definitely remain supported.

Note that EMFStore does not version files like a regular VCS does, but
it tracks changes on model instances. Therefore you'll need to reference
files somewhere out of your model. Furthermore, since EMFStore only
tracks changes on model instances, it will not recognize if a file
changes, but it'll detect if the identifier you are using from within
your model changes, which will eventually trigger the upload of any not
yet uploaded file at commit.

Hope this helps

Cheers
Edgar

That did help. Good to hear it will be supported. I'll explore the use
of the file API further and let you know how it goes.

Thanks again for your great work on EMFStore.

Scott
