EMF Search---GenModel Integration

GenModel is basically an Ecore model for Ecore generation. Thus, it was a natural candidate for an EMF Search integration.

GenModel elements are pretty similar to those defined in Ecore meta model. Search page has a simple textual expression area. GenModel extension of the EMF Search framework is very similar to the UML2 one. They are all inheriting from the Ecore one.
