Hi,

I am trying to create an ecore diagram for a ecore model, in which i want all the references in the model to be represented diagramatically in my diagram.

I could successfully get all the references using polylines in my diagram, but the references overlap with each other.

Is there any layouting algorithm already available which i could reuse to avoid overlapping of references.

Could anyone please comment on this.

Regards,
Manasa

You can integrate any layout algorithm you have, e.g. the one that is
provided with GEF. There is a description how to do that in our FAQ, see
http://www.eclipse.org/graphiti/developers/faq.php

We are currently working in the KIELER project to connect sophisticated
layout algorithms to diagram frameworks. This has already been done for
GMF. We are currently working on doing the Graphiti integration.

https://rtsys.informatik.uni-kiel.de/trac/kieler

See also some Demo Videos online that cover the case of class diagrams.

Cheers,
Hauke

Hello Hauke,

can you please give some more detailed advice on how to use kieler with graphiti?

In the kieler website a project "Data Flow Editor" was mentioned which may be useful for me as I need to create a data flow editor. However "trunk/kodata/" to where the link leads is not existing. Can I find it somewhere?

Best Regards,

Chris

Hi,

this may be a bit late, but anyway...
We have a meta model for data flow models called KAOM (KIELER Actor
Oriented Modeling). We have a GMF based editor, a Graphiti based editor,
and an Xtext based editor for it. And of course, automatic layout. If
you are still interested, feel free to email me.

Find the Graphiti Editor here (excluding dependencies), availabe through
public SVN:

http://rtsys.informatik.uni-kiel.de/svn/kieler/trunk/plugins/de.cau.cs.kieler.kaom.graphiti/

Regards
Miro
