Latest commit 9749f4c Jan 11, 2018 @planger planger [529413] Extension point for defining files included in EMFModelProvider
This change replaces the enablement expression listing all file
extensions explicitly, as used before this change for enabling the
EMFModelProvider for certain files, with a property tester that reads
the files to be included from an extension point instead.

This allows other plug-ins to contribute inclusions of files. These
third-party plug-ins can specify a tester in the form of a content type
or a file extension that shall be handled by the EMF Model Provider, or
in the form of a class that determines whether to include a file or not
at runtime.

The dynamic testers enables third-party plug-ins to perform a more
fine-grained analysis to whether or not include a file, for instance,
Papyrus may not only specify that ALL properties files shall be handled
by the EMFModelProvider but only those where an equally named di file

Reporting Bugs

There may be errors in the /.metadata/.log or even on stdout that can help you track down and problem.
When reporting errors, please include stack traces when applicable and the commit id or the version your plugin is built from, or the version of the plugin if it does not contain a date.


EMF Compare can be built using maven from within the sub-folder of this repository :

mvn clean package -Pmars

The above example will build the EMF Compare binaries against a Mars platform. Select the appropriate profile according to the platform you wish to install EMF Compare on, one in [mars, luna, kepler, juno, indigo, helios, galileo].

You can also check the tests using

mvn verify -Pmars --fail-at-end -Dmaven.test.failure.ignore=true
