Geronimo Tooling: migrate UI to EMF.edit framework

         Key: GERONIMO-901
     Project: Geronimo
        Type: New Feature
    Versions: 1.0    
    Reporter: Sachin Patel

The existing UI plugins for Geronimo eventually need to be migrated to be built on top of
the EMF.edit framework.  By doing so will allow advanced UI capability for modifing and displaying
the underlying deployment plan models.  The EMF.edit framework provides:

   1. Content and label provider classes, property source support, and other convenience classes
that allow EMF models to be displayed using standard desktop (JFace) viewers and property
   2. A command framework, including a set of generic command implementation classes for building
editors that support fully automatic undo and redo.

Afterwards It will be possible to create item provides to contribute Geronimo specific information
to the J2EE Common Navigator in WTP.  By using EMF for both the underlying model framework
as well as the UI framework, it will allow seamless integration between multiple views in
Eclipse as well as synchronization between those views and other models such as the J2EE deployment
descriptor models in WTP.

Building this UI framework is a first major step in providing an extendable, first class tooling
support for Geronimo.
