Now we will generate the code as you would do it for a normal project. This means the model code, the edit plug-in and GMF diagram plug-in.

Now your workspace contains the plug-ins: the one containing the model code, the edit plug-in and the diagram plug-in. Now right click the the gmf gen model an examine the context menu. You will see an additional entry called "Generate Dawn Genmodel"

Running this will create a new file called acore.dawngenmodel. This model contains specific information for the Dawn generator.
