EMF Runtime

The non-UI part of EMF works with RAP out of the box. The example mentioned in the end of this page only uses the following two core plug-ins of EMF. These have an optional dependency to the resource bundles but don't need them to work properly. The bundles used for the model in this example are

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

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).

Target provisioning

The minimal target of an EMF and RAP runtime consists of two p2 repositories, one for RAP and one for the EMF RAP support.


Please be 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 "Rich Ajax Application" 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.
