Failed to build the tutorial

Hi, I had a chance to look at GMF Tutorial for one of my Modelling Projects. Taipan example - It was descriptive and very much similar to what I am looking for.

The link for taipan seems to be broken.I tried searching the CVS Repository for the taipan example, but in vain(

From various links, , i came to know that the entire package has been restructured.So can anyone let me know the path for the Taipan example after the restructuring. This would be of immense help to us.

Thanks in advance, Raga

Find the taipan package. Unfortunatelly I wasn't able to make it run. I can't choose the Taipan Diagram in the Example folder. here
Seems you have select all for “.tapian.*”, and not only “.tapian”. The document says : “select the org.eclipse.gmf.examples.taipan.* modules”. TBH, this does not work this way neither, as it seems there are errors in the so imported projects. Anyway, for people with a need of a tutorial, there is either Learn Eclipse GMF in 15 minutes, by Chris Aniszczyk at IBM but it is dated 2006-09-12, so does not seems better as an up to date tutorial. --Yannick 16:45, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

Wrong CVS location

The document says

If you're anxious to see GMF in action, check out the Taipan example projects into your workspace from CVS by switching to the CVS Repository Exploring perspective and adding a repository location as shown in the image to the right. Otherwise, you can skip to the next section. Navigate to /HEAD/org.eclipse.gmf/examples

Seems this should be updated, as I do not see any org.eclipse.gmf in HEAD (there is an org.eclipse.gmp though). --Yannick 12:31, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

GIT repositories location

It seems that examples of this GMF tutorial have migrated to GIT.

You can retrieve these example (MindMap & Taipan) here

Demo from GIT does not run with latest GMF release

the plugin org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.lite.svg is required to build and Run the Taipan demo. However it does not come with the release. Furthermore you can not be installed from the (experimental) update site GMF-Tooling if you have the release already installer (see error below) you need to get the plugins directly from the GIT repository. Someone needs to update this feature.

Cannot complete the install because of a conflicting dependency.
