Note that generated editors have a resource delta listener so they |
update the EMF Resource when the underlying Eclipse workspace IFile is
changed. Also, Eclipse has preferences to poll or be notified by the OS
when the workspace resources change, so the combination of those should
help update the editor when the resources are changed outside of Eclipse
directly in the file system.
