I've tried to do this but there is a problem that by default it's possible
to add a restriction to the extension of the file opening by editor plugin.
But sure, there should be solution for that and I intend to find it.

Yes, such an option is supported by the Click eclipse plugin for opening
modeler and it should be supported by our plugin too.

Just to clarify, do you see these popups at modeler or at eclipse? it should
be updated at eclipse automatically without any promts. If this is referred
to modeler - yes, I haven't changed default behavior, and it is "TODO" task

Now the class generation works automatically on save and these dialogs allow
user to cancel the genetating if there's no need at it, but ofcourse you are
right and we should show popups only if we really need the generating

I haven't seen this, it seems to be a bug
