Hi,

After claoing and reopenign my editor at lest 3000 time upon model file change, I realized that
I would need to make it refresh itself upon a model file change caused by an
external modification (editor, program, etc).

I searched the newsgroup and found the thread below, but since I am
not enough confortable with EMF editor/JFace stuff, I could not see how
to use Ed's answer to solve the problem.

Looking at the generated code I found the method below, but I don't know how to
customize is so as to make a proper use of resource.unload().

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


protected IResourceChangeListener resourceChangeListener =
new IResourceChangeListener() {
public void resourceChanged(IResourceChangeEvent event) {
IResourceDelta delta = event.getDelta();
try {
class ResourceDeltaVisitor implements IResourceDeltaVisitor {
protected ResourceSet resourceSet = editingDomain.getResourceSet();
protected Collection<Resource> changedResources = new ArrayList<Resource>();
protected Collection<Resource> removedResources = new ArrayList<Resource>();

public boolean visit(IResourceDelta delta) {
int type = delta.getResource().getType();
if (type == IResource.FILE) {
if (delta.getKind() == IResourceDelta.REMOVED ||
delta.getKind() == IResourceDelta.CHANGED && delta.getFlags() != IResourceDelta.MARKERS) {
URI createPlatformResourceURI = URI.createPlatformResourceURI(delta.getFullPath().toString(), true);
Resource resource = resourceSet.getResource(createPlatformResourceURI, false);

if (resource != null) {
if (delta.getKind() == IResourceDelta.REMOVED) {
removedResources.add(resource);
}
else if (!savedResources.remove(resource)) {
changedResources.add(resource);

/****

I understand I should reload the model somewhere in
here using resource.unload(); but always get an NPE exception


*****/




}
}
}
}

return true;
}

public Collection<Resource> getChangedResources() {
return changedResources;
}

public Collection<Resource> getRemovedResources() {
return removedResources;
}
}

thks,

Steven Derrien

Keep in mind that the code EMF has in the editor kicks in when the
workspace knows about the change, i.e., when the resource is changed
using the Eclipse resource APIs by say another editor. If the change is
external, the workspace needs to be refreshed. There's a preference to
auto refresh it, so maybe that's all you're missing...

Why do you get one. This code should already just work...

I set up the reference, and after an Eclipse restart it would
indeed just work.


Thanks a lot for the hint !
