Hi,

i want to create a GMF diagram which is not based on ecore model, i want to back up GMF diagram with Objects from my application(concept is quite similar to Class diagram), i have all those classes already written as previously i was using other graphical library for creating diagrams but i want to switch to Eclipse - GMF(RCP application). I donot want XMI serialization as well, i would like to have object serialization.

Please guide me how to start?

thanks!

cheers,

Hi,

GMF is tighly coupled with EMF, thus you will need to define an ecore
model. If you are only interested by the graphical part you could
simply use gef (http://www.eclipse.org/gef/).

Hi,
a really good idea to switch to Eclipse :>

for your use case you shoud use 'plain' GEF instead of GMF because GMF assumes that EMF is used for the semantic and notational model. GEF does not make any assumptions about the underlying Frameworks.

Regards,
Andreas
