EMF4Net is an component of the EMFT project with the goal to enhance the Eclipse Modeling Framework (EMF) with a code generation facility for the .Net platform. EMF4Net should allow you to generate C# code from your existing Ecore models and use that code in a similar way you can use the Java code generated by EMF.


The translation of the EMF core runtime from Java to C# is the main task of this project. The EMF core runtime comprises the following plugins:

  • org.eclipse.emf.ecore
  • org.eclipse.emf.common
  • org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi
  • org.eclipse.emf.ecore.change

Unification of UML, XML, Java, and C#

EMF unifies UML, XML and Java at the modeling abstraction level by providing means to interchange any of this "data model" representations. EMF4Net tries to add C# as a fourth interchangeable modeling language to EMF.
