The Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) offers a wide range of support for model-based development. An important aspect of model-based tool and application development is the discovery of model and meta model content. This is the concern of the EMF Model Query project. The EMF Model Query project has been offering querying capabilities for quite some time, however the discovery of persisted modeling content was not very well supported. During this talk we will present a whole new query language planned for the next release of the EMF Model Query project. Key features of the new language are: (1) Human readable, concrete syntax (2) Strongly typed queries (3) Dirty state awareness (4) Platform and model repository independence (5) Scalable query execution
