Proposal for new Eclipse Project: EMF Index

In the Modeling Symposium at Eclipse Summit Europe 2008 we discussed the necessity of an index for EMF models. Such an index would allow efficient queries for EMF model elements without actually loading the model resources, which is an enabling feature for powerful EMF modeling tools.

The proposal is now online. Please use the EMFT newsgroup for discussion. I am looking forward to your feedback.

Hi Jan,

Sounds interesting to have this as open source framework. Will the actual index implementation be based on a DBMS or on lucene? ;-) Anyway, I guess you change the implementation via an extension point, right? Looking forward to test EMF index in the future!

Best wishes,
