Hi

I am evaluating using Riena (looking at 1.2) as an alternative to out existing RCP project. We only want to use the UI components of Riena, where we want to make use of the Navigation, MVC, and binding etc. I can get a demo application up and running no problem, but what I am trying to figure out now is how we can use Spring IOC to instantiate the controllers. What is the best way to go about doing that? In our RCP app we use a library that implements IExecutableExtensionFactory ( http://martinlippert.blogspot.com/2008/05/dependency-injecti on-for-extensions.html) to allow the use of Spring IOC to create views. Reading the Riena docs it looks like I should be able to inject this extension into the framework somehow, but I cant figure it out. Does anybody have any ideas?

Cheers

Stu.

Hi Stu,

Looking at the page from martin, I think that should be doable. I also highly recommend that you use Riena 2.0 but it
should work either way. We use the ExtensionRegistry to create the controller and the view. So instead of referencing
the client directly you could reference the controller through Spring using
org.eclipse.springframework.util.SpringExtensionFactory:myco ntroller

and in the RCP View you reference then org.eclipse.springframework.util.SpringExtensionFactory:myvi ew

Have you tried that before ? Seems such a straight forward approach that I suspect that you tried it and it didnt work.

Hope that helps. In any event I'd like to hear if that works or not

thanks
christian
