EMF Runtime

The non-UI part of EMF works with RAP out of the box. With the aid of the following bundles, EMF models can be created and accessed.

  • org.eclipse.emf.common
  • org.eclipse.emf.ecore

Even though these bundles express an optional dependency on org.eclipse.core.resources, this dependency isn't required at runtime.

UI and Edit Framework

Since 2.6 M6, EMF provides branches of it's UI/Edit framework for use with RAP. The necessary bundles are available from the EMF software repository and can be used together with the RAP runtime (> 1.3 M6).

The next sections ouline the basic steps to run EMF on RAP.

Assemble the Runtime Target

The minimal runtime consists of EMF for RAP and the RAP runtime itself. To set up the target platform, the most conventient way is assemble it directly from the software repositories:

Neither EMF for RAP nor the RAP runtime must not be installed into the IDE, it will break the IDE. See bug 306361

Please make sure to uncheck the "Include required software" option when adding the features from the repositories.

Targeting RAP as Runtime

Open up the Properties view on your .genmodel file and set the "Rich Ajax Application" from the "Editor" category to true.

After that you can generate your edit and editor code.

Launch the application

You can now launch the application via it's generated IApplication. Just use the LibraryEditorAdvisorApplication entrypoint.
