I have an EMF generated model and I want to remove an element(object) from the model.
To my surprise all the methods in EObject are returning read only properties and when i try to remove an element from an Eobjects object, in runtime iam getting UNSUPPORTEDTYPEEXCEPTION which is trivial coz all the methods are returning read only elements/lists....
Then I did a sample test... i want to remove "emfObjectToBeRemoved" from "emfParentObject".
duplciateList.addAll(originalList); //line 3 , copying the list
duplicateList.remove(emfObjectToBeRemoved); // line 4
To my shock duplicateList is removing properly but the element is not getting removed from originalList...
I broke my head for some hours, did some googling and i dint have any clue ...Then when i was about to leave office , I felt like googling again and this time miracle happened...I observed an open bug with subject EcoreUtil.remove(object) in Eclipse Bugzilla and for a minute i was surprised seeing that EcoreUtil. I wasnt aware of that.
Then after line 4 , I put this statement
and when i run it , it is able to delete from EMF model(original list) also .....
I hope poor ppl like me will make use of this tip and merry ...
If you have an alternative for this, plz add it in comments..
