Adding a metamodel

A metamodel is supported in MDWorkbench using EMF ( A metamodel may be imported from various sources:

Importing a metamodel results in the creation of a new Eclipse plugin project, which contains Java classes that define the contents of the metamodel.

You may then add profile capability to the imported metamodel, if it makes sense.

The metamodel can then be tested and deployed.

Compatibility note

Metamodels are EMF-based ( Please note that EMF is ascending compatible only: metamodels created and compiled with a certain version of Eclipse are not compatible with lower versions.
