Is there a good data binding framework for SWT? [message #446407] Wed, 24 November 2004 12:22 Go to next message

Hi all,

I was wondering, if anybody out there is working with a good data
binding framework for SWT?
The only one, that seems to be considerable, i found through Google was
the EssentialData stuff from SWTWorkbench.

I evaluated JGoodies for Swing too, that makes a better impression to me.
Has anybody other ressources, links, helpfull thoughts on doing the data
binding stuff, when implementing an app with SWT?
I dont want to implement all that model-widget-listener-stuff myself,
nor do i want to develop a whole data-binding-framework for SWT myself.

Thanks for any hints in advance! :-)
Cheers ako

Hi,

swtworkbench is the only one I know of at the moment but I'm also not
comfortable with it so I'm in the progress to implement one my own.

We are at the moment discussing whether we will release it as a
(L)GPL-Version in future. We have already used it in 2 medium projects
but at the moment it not really useable for someone without having a
great bunch of examples. Nevertheless it's already very flexible and
powerful:
* MVC-Driven which means that you could substitute the Model below
e.g. using plain JDBC, Torque, hibernate, OJB, WebService
at the moment I have only a working JDBC-Model
* completely event based (registration of events)
* networking support

I could keep you informed if you are interested or could send you
screenshots, ... .

Hi Tom,

what a pitty, that there seems to be no other framework. :(
If you are developing your own solution, have you seen the jgoodies-stuff?
https://jgoodies.dev.java.net/

Its only implemented for swing as far, but it really seems to be good
stuff. Oracle integrates it in its ADF-JClient and Karsten Lentzsch (the
writer of jgoodies) seems to be on the road with it (JavaOne2004).

I havent used it, only evaluated with a fast look over, but it seems to
be better than SWTWorkbench IMHO.
Additionally he has some validation stuff in it too.
Perhaps its worth a look for you too?!

Cheers ako
