newbie question - linking existing database repository to DSL [message #621016] Sun, 14 June 2009 13:27

I'm developing a modular DSL based tool, I have a placeholder in my DSL
for 'legacy things'. I also have (or intend to be given) a database
containing 'legacy things' but I want to create a reference to 'legacy
things' in my DSL and have my GMF editor extract information about
'legacy things' from a database.

In my scanning through eclipse projects, CDO looks like an interesting
technology to achieve this goal, am I thinking along the right lines?

Also, if I am given an arbitrary database schema to work from, how easy
is it to integrate to a DSL, ie do I need to manually derive an ecore
model of the database schema or is their something that will
automagically create such an ecore file?


PS by legacy things I mean some structured data that already exists but
built by someone else and I need to reference in my DSL now or in
