Apollo and EMF

Since Apollo uses Eclipse EMF/GMF technology is there a way to generate EMF .ecore model files from an Apollo class diagram?

It is currently not possible to create Ecore metamodels with Apollo.

Nevertheless, there is an UML-2-Ecore plug-in for Poseidon that is included in the professional edition. There are certain mismatches between UML and ecore that makes this a little bit tricky, especially when it comes to EReferences. Into the bargain, you might want to set additional Ecore properties which do not have an UML counterpart.

There is a free graphical Ecore editor shipped with the GMF SDK. Though it might not look too pretty, it allows you to set all Ecore properties in the properties view and to create diagrams from existing .ecore files.
