Make sure the FAQ doesn't already answer your question, e.g.,
To integrate with some other RESTful resource back-end, you could
use a specialized URIHandlerImpl that you could add to your resource
set's URI converter; you can look at the various existing subclasses
for design ideas.
Please don't post follow-up questions on the mailing list but rather

Hi EMF Developers,
Can you please help with an idea how to handle the
In general can we initialise EMF from an abstract
resource (not from the local file system)? Do you have
some examples on how to do this?
Thanks in advance!
Wow!!! It looks really veeery nice! :)
For the EMF in the past we hacked something which
@Momchil probably can recall. The major problem is
as you described that EMF relies on the file system
directly instead of the Resource API. I hope that
this has been changed meanwhile, but I am not sure.
In general in Eclipse Dirigible you can use
either Resource API (hacked version by us) or
Repository API (own implementation) to access
resources. The Repository itself could be Local
(file-system based), DB (RDBMS implementation), Git
(read-only as of now), etc. The Resource API in
Dirigible is connected as a layer on top of the
Repository API, hence follow the same channel for
accessing the actual resources. We have to see what
have to be done in EMF to allow this. Once we make
it, we can open Dirigible for the whole world of EMF
based plugins available.
@Markus, do you know somebody from EMF team that
can jump in and help here?
Btw. Just an idea – can we provide a custom
protocol handler for the URIs that we can use?
Similar thing we had in the integration of the
First attempt, looks nice right ? :-)
