Is there any recommended way to perform a partial transformation from EMF->Xtext->EMF?

The first step from EMF->Xtext is trivial. But the second one from (partial)Xtext->EMF seems difficult.

My use-case is the following: we have multiple views on a model. One is an Xtext editor, and a second one is a custom UI which operates on EMF objects. Some content of the model is very hard to edit outside of Xtext, so we would like to not implement a custom UI for that specific object.

I already found something that looks like what we need: the "Popup Xtext Editor" mentioned on this site: But it is quite old and I would like to make sure that this is still possible and there are no better ways to do it yet.

Hello Robert,

You may take a look at the Xtext-Sirius Integration (e.g. from Altran :, there could be some information that helps you further.

Hope that helps,
