I am looking into viewlet creation. Following https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/ViewletServices I realize that I need to work with EMF. However, there is no option to create an Ecore model with my vanilla RTC 5.0.2 Eclipse client.
Even more puzzling is that EMF seems to be installed. If I look into the About section I see
 


But the editors are not active. Even if I try to open an existing Ecore model from the sample, that is opened in a text editor. Any suggestions?

I can, of course download a different Eclipse distribution, however, I think this should be possible in the RTC Eclipse client, I believe.

I use the ZIP version that comes with the downloads. The Plain Zip Eclipse 3.6 RTC 5.0.2 Client.

Digging deeper: https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/ComponentDevelopmentSetup explains that it is necessary to download the Install EMF SDK with the zip download and the Jazz codegen tool.

The maintenance on that page ends with RTC 2.0 and it seems to be impossible to find these components for newer RTC versions.

I will try to find out what the story is and post more information, if I can find it.

Maybe the service creation is not even necessary. I can't tell at the moment.
