I thought it may be nice to get an update for my progress with reimplementing my model with handly.
I got to the same level as step three of the tutorial, with a simplified model. It worked nicely, even if it feels that quite a lot of the code is still boilerplate and could be put in a library.
Now I have hit the "normal" problems when working with Eclipse: the APIs are hairy and one doesn't use them often enough to remember all the details, so I need to search again for how things are done :-) The particular example is the navigator - using the new model loses all the menus and actions and I'll have to figure out why. My guess is that the model elements should be adaptable to IResources (or the other way around), do you have any idea?
