Hi everybody.
I'm doing some research on model repositories, to figure out which to use.
I found out about MongoEMF and it seems promising.

I'm just starting to look at it, and I have one question at this stage.
Which would be the best approach to provide a RESTfull interface to MongoEMF?
I'm thinking on having a remote model repository and accessing it through REST, but I believe MongoEMF hasn't got this feature yet, am I right?

Thanks in advance for your answers and your help.

You are correct that MongoEMF does not directly support REST.  You can put a REST layer on top of MongoEMF and use EMF as your domain layer with persistence to MongoDB.  I am working on exactly that, but it's not ready for prime-time yet.  For your REST layer, you can use Restlet, Jersey, or Admatu.  I've been using Restlet, emfjson (, MongoEMF, and OSGi to build my server.
