Re: [emf-dev] ESetting/EOperation Delegate


I too think such hooks would be a very valuable enhancement.

From a user's perspective, this is pretty cool: The ecore file merely defines the static structure of the model without any annotations. You specify the behavior in separate *.ext files, thus making use of Xtend's excellent editor with content assist and syntax validation.
It would be even more cool if there was an Xtext editor for Emfatic with embedded grammars for the behavioral extensions...

Yes, that would be really cool.
We currently think about developing a base language for Xtext, supporting expressions, which can be generated to Java or interpreted. So by subclassing that language in an EMFatic-like language both generated an dynamic Ecore models should work.

I personally would prefer one general hook (like in over the several special ones. I'd like to specify guarding behavior for common (non-derived) features as well.

All in all we'ld be glad to help. We'll at least use it and provide feedback.
