Hi everybody,

Im using EMF-Compare and made some customizations. Now i want to show a SWT.Browser, when the Diff is a certain Xhtml-Element. Which classes do I have to extend?

What I have until now:

  • a custom HtmlMergeViewerCreator implements IViewerCreator
  • a custom HtmlMergeViewer extends ContentMergeViewer
  • and a extension to extension-point in plugin.xml, which points to my HtmlMergeViewerCreator

When I compare two files, my custom merge viewer opens on the first Diff.
But when i navigate to a HTML Diff the default EMF Model Compare opens instead of my custom merge viewer. And I can't select my HTML Viewer

What is missing? Anybody knows? Every hint is appreciated!

I think you should add your own Accessor for Xhtml-Elements. In EMF Compare, Accessors allows to bind elements in the StructureMergeViewer (top panel) to the elements in the ContentMergeViewers (down panels).
The extension point is
You'll have to provide to this extension point a specialization of and a ranking. This ranking must be greater than the existing ones (> 15).
You can find examples of existing AccessorFactories here:
These AccessorFactories are used in the

Hope it can help you.
