Eclipse GMF Runtime

NOTE: As of september of 2021, the source code for GMF Runtime is now hosted on GitHub at If you have Git clones which refers to the old location at, update them or you will not get the latest changes.

The Eclipse GMF Runtime is an industry proven application framework for creating graphical editors using Eclipse EMF and Eclipse GEF.

The GMF Runtime provides many features that one would have to code by hand if using EMF and GMF directly.

  • A set of reusable components for graphical editors, such as printing, image export, actions and toolbars and much more.
  • A standardized model to describe diagram elements, which separates between the semantic (domain) and notation (diagram) elements.
  • A command infrastructure that bridges the different command frameworks used by EMF and GEF.
  • An extensible framework that allows graphical editors to be open and extendible.



Issues are tracked in the Eclipse Bugzilla under the GMF-Runtime product:
