Hi all,

I've developped an editor for a language used in my company. This editor
is a textual one but also a graphical one (actually it allows only the
text to graph traduction) thanks to GMF technology.

Then I've red some articles and I finally found openArchitectureWare.
As I have some language traductors to realize, oAW seems to be the good
tool to perform it (model-to-model transformation).

So I've begun to "learn" oAW, reading articles, performing tutorials, etc.

About my investigations I found some questions (maybe I just haven't found
the answers yet) :

- I want to realize a simple editor with xText (from the article "oAW
xText : A framework for textual DSLs"). Where could I find all the
possibilities offered by xText ? For example, I'd like to customize the
syntax coloring (ex : "int" keywork in bold, etc.).

- If I want to add a graphical part in my editor ? I know how to do it
"basically" with GMF but I haven't found any articles which talk about
that WITH oAW. In fact I want to realize a bidirectionnal editor (text to
graph and graph to text). Does oAW allow that ?

These are the two biggest questions I have for the moment. oAW seems to be
a really powerful tool ! I really hope the model-to-model transformation
is as good as I need ;-)

Thanks in advance !
