EMF Compare

CDO & Xtext: Will it blend?

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

During the past two years, I talked to several people - customers and Eclipse hackers alike - about a simple question: Whether it is actually possible to store models edited with Xtext in CDO - or, if you like the other point of view better: whether you can edit a model stored in CDO with an Xtext editor.

While the question is rather simple, the answer is not:

  • Xtext usually does not store EMF models but textual representations;
  • Xtext uses an XtextResource to deserialize and serialize EMF models;
