Package org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.emf.core.util

Miscellaneous utility classes for working with MSL-managed resources, objects, and meta-models.


Interface Summary
IProxyEObject Utility interface that provides proxy information; it is typically provided by an adapter for some instance of an EMF metaclass (EClass).

Class Summary
CrossReferenceAdapter An adapter that maintains itself as an adapter for all contained objects.
EMFCoreUtil Static utilities for working with EMF objects and resources in the GMF environment.
EObjectAdapter Wraps an EObject to adapt it to the IAdaptable Eclipse platform API.
PackageUtil Some utility functions that work at the meta-class level.
Util Internal utilities, for private use of the EMF Core plug-in.

Package org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.emf.core.util Description

Miscellaneous utility classes for working with MSL-managed resources, objects, and meta-models.

Package Specification

Generic utilities for working with EMF artifacts:

  • org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.emf.core.util.EObjectUtil - for working with EObjects
  • org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.emf.core.util.ProxyUtil - for working with proxy (unresolved) EObjects
  • org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.emf.core.util.ResourceUtil - for working with Resources
  • org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.emf.core.util.MetaModelUtil - for introspecting the structure of meta-models
  • org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.emf.core.util.EObjectContainmentLoadingEList and org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.emf.core.util.EObjectContainmentWithInverseLoadingEList - for implementing containment references that automatically load unloaded separate elements in a logical resource

This package also provides the following additional utilities:

  • IAdaptable support: the EObjectAdapter class implements an IAdaptable that wraps an EObject to return it as the adapter for the EObject class. This is useful for passing EMF objects to APIs that consume adaptables
  • org.eclipse.gmf.runtime.emf.core.util.EObjectContainmentUtil provides a variety of facilities for analyzing with EMF containment trees and EClass hierarchies
