Hi,
We are using the gef's CompoundDirectedGraphLayout for auto layout of diagram, but it is not giving the expected result.The look and feel are not so good,.There are so many overlapping and crossing.
Please suggest me any layput algorithm for BPMN diagram which will give me getter result.
Thanks,
Vaibhav

Hi,

For our BPMN modeler, we use a GravityConstrainedFlowLayout for the diagram. It is part of GMF runtime, but I think you can use it with any diagram editor (not only GMF-generated ones).

HTH,

That's all the code we have on this topic: http://www.bonitasoft.org/websvn/filedetails.php?repname=Bon ita+Open+Solution&path=%2Fbonita-studio%2Fbranches%2Fbon ita-studio-5.2.3%2Fplugins%2Forg.bonitasoft.studio.diagram.c ustom%2Fsrc%2Forg%2Fbonitasoft%2Fstudio%2Fdiagram%2Fcustom%2 Fparts%2FCustomMainProcessEditPart.java

GMF provides a lot of additional layouts and figures in the bundle org.eclipse,gmf.runtime,draw2d.ui. You could use them even if your editor is only based on GEF and draw2d.
