Hi,

We have a IDE (SwixEditor) for visually laying out swing forms persisted in XML. This project is based on EMF / GEF. This tool is used by several enterprises and individuals.

We want to opensource this project and contribute it as an IDE project similar to VE. Whats the process of doing so. Please advise. You can also send me an email at sanjeevk [AT] invivosoft [DOT] com.

More information on this product can be accessed from http://www.invivosoft.com/swixeditor

Best regards
Sanjeev Kumar
Invivo Software.

Hi Sanjeev,

Thanks for this offer. Please allow me to ask you some questions:
1. What's the syntax or grammar of XML?
2. What are the benifices for Eclipse community?
3. Is the XML langauge is Open source, if so could you indicate its
license

The declarative UI is definitively our new direction to go. I just need to
know if it makes sense and how integrate them together.

Best regards
Yves YANG

Hi Yves,

Thanks for the reply.
You asked
>>1. What's the syntax or grammar of XML?
The XML is based on swixml, an open source engine for representing Swing UI in xml (www.swixml.org).

However, the SwixEditor is independent of the underlying XML schema. It can support any XML schema. Supporting a custom schema is as simple as adding required annotations to the schema and generating the EMF model code.

>>2. Benefits to Eclipse community

a. Declarative UI persistance for any XML schema definition.
b. Robust implementation of Jigloo FormLayout layout manager (in addition to other layout managers)
c. A complex reference implementation of WYSIWYG editor using GEF/EMF platforms.
d. Advance concepts such as visual inheritance using EObject model.
e. Our customers found this equivalant and better than Microsoft XAML editor.

>>Is XML open source...license details
Out of box, SwixEditor supports swixml (http://www.swixml.org) an open source engine for representing swing UI. SwiXml is available under an Apache-style open source license.

However, as I mentioned earlier, swixeditor is designed to support any xml schema representation.

Please let me know if you need any further information.

Thanks
Sanjeev Kumar

Could you look at the XWT Designer, which is incubated in e4? It seems your
editor is much close to this one.

> e. Our customers found this equivalant and better than Microsoft XAML

I suppose you mean XAML pad, which is in fact a XML text editor, or
Expression Blend, which is much rich and powerful commercial tools?

Hi Yves,

Yes SwixEditor has same features as XWT Designer.

SwixEditor is however independent of the underlying XML schema. It can be extended to support XWT and other XML schemas as well as Swing and SWT engines.

Thanks
Sanjeev
