Its simple. but you have down load emf prior to using lomboz.

just google for this "emf-sdo-xsd-SDK-2.0.2" and download which has under "All"

first unzip the emf you will see 2 folders under eclipse.
plugins and features.

copy all the plugins and paste in your eclipse plugins folder and same with features.

then repeat the same with loboz.
