Which Java frameworks can be combined with EMF?

Java has a lot of frameworks, but I'm not sure which of them can be combined easily with EMF. Can EMF easily be used in any RCP or JSP application and is it also compatible with Spring?

Does EMF refer to the Eclipse Modeling Framework?

Yes, it refers to the Eclipse Modeling Framework. Is the EMF some kind of superset of the RCP framework?

No, not at all. It's a set of Eclipse plugins that provide various capabilities. It's not a framework in the same sense that Spring or Eclipse itself is. It's compatible with pretty much everything.

That said, it's mostly a set of development tools; it's used interactively by developers within Eclipse.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
