The Graphical Modeling Framework (GMF) project provides a means to create
graphical domain-specific modeling (DSM) tools for Eclipse. While GMF's
generative component allows toolsmiths to quickly get started producing a DSM
product, additional effort is required to adjust the generated product to fit
their particular needs.
During this long talk we are going to touch different approaches to
customization and the ways to utilize GMF tooling in particular. We'll show how
to leverage provided SDK facilities to fine tune your DSM product in the most
effective manner. Applying modifications to generated code, customizing code
generation templates, and the use of cross-model transformations will be
