Getting started with non EMF Domain Models, need an example [message #765844] Wed, 14 December 2011 18:59 Go to next message

I am trying desperately to make a very simple example with POJO classes and Graphiti. (Based on the EMF tutorial in the documentation).

It looks to me that Graphiti can only work with EMF:(

I have two very simple Domain Objects: BusinessClass and Association.


public class BusinessClass {
	
	private String name;

	public String getName() {
		return name;
	}

	public void setName(String name) {
		this.name = name;
	}
	
	
}

public class Association {
	
	private BusinessClass fromClass;
	
	private BusinessClass toClass;
	
	private String name;

	public BusinessClass getFromClass() {
		return fromClass;
	}

	public void setFromClass(BusinessClass fromClass) {
		this.fromClass = fromClass;
	}

	public BusinessClass getToClass() {
		return toClass;
	}

	public void setToClass(BusinessClass toClass) {
		this.toClass = toClass;
	}

	public String getName() {
		return name;
	}

	public void setName(String name) {
		this.name = name;
	}

}




In the CreateBusinessClassFeature I have following code:


	@Override
	public Object[] create(ICreateContext context) {
	// ask user for BusinessClass name
        String newClassName = ExampleUtil.askString(TITLE, USER_QUESTION, "");
        if (newClassName == null || newClassName.trim().length() == 0) {
            return EMPTY;
        }
        // create EClass
        BusinessClass newClass = new BusinessClass();
        // Add model element to resource.
        // We add the model element to the resource of the diagram for
        // simplicity's sake. Normally, a customer would use its own
        // model persistence layer for storing the business model separately.
//        getDiagram().eResource().getContents().add(newClass);
        newClass.setName(newClassName);

        // do the add
        addGraphicalRepresentation(context, newClass);

        // return newly created business object(s)
        return new Object[] { newClass };		
	}




If I start the Editor and create a new BusinessClass, then an exception happens:

java.lang.ClassCastException: test.graphiti.nonemf.domainmodel.BusinessClass cannot be cast to org.eclipse.emf.ecore.EObject
	at org.eclipse.graphiti.features.impl.AbstractFeatureProvider.link(AbstractFeatureProvider.java:668)
..
...
	at org.eclipse.graphiti.features.impl.AbstractFeature.addGraphicalRepresentation(AbstractFeature.java:108)
	at test.graphiti.nonemf.diagram.features.CreateBusinessClassFeature.create(CreateBusinessClassFeature.java:49)


The reason is that the linkage of the diagramm can only work with EObjects ...

EObject bo = (EObject) businessObjects[i]; // KABUMM!!


It is very frustrating for me, to create without prior knowledge a small and clear example.

So please, can someone help me create such an example with only pojo objects?

It would also help a lot for Graphiti distribution. The world is not just about EMF ...

Hi Nikolai,

did your FeatureProvider supply an IndependenceSolver?

Best, Tim

Hello Tim,

many thanks for that tip! Should it eventually be mentioned here: http://help.eclipse.org/indigo/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.graphiti.doc%2Fresources%2Fdocu%2Fgfw%2FNon-EMF+domain+objects.htm ?


My implementation now looks like this (first try, I'm happy, because I can draw after hours of despair a rectangle Smile


import org.eclipse.graphiti.features.impl.IIndependenceSolver;

public class POJOIndependenceSolver implements IIndependenceSolver {
	
	private static Map<String, Object> objectMap = new HashMap<String, Object>();

	@Override
	public String getKeyForBusinessObject(Object bo) {
		String result = null;
		if(bo != null) {
			result = String.valueOf(bo.hashCode());
			
			if(!objectMap.containsKey(result))
				objectMap.put(result, bo);
		}
		return result;
	}

	@Override
	public Object getBusinessObjectForKey(String key) {
		return objectMap.get(key);
	}

}


public class DiagramFeatureProvider extends DefaultFeatureProvider {
	
	POJOIndependenceSolver pojoIndependenceSolver;

	public DiagramFeatureProvider(IDiagramTypeProvider dtp) {
		super(dtp);
		pojoIndependenceSolver = new POJOIndependenceSolver();
		setIndependenceSolver(pojoIndependenceSolver);
	}

	@Override
	public IAddFeature getAddFeature(IAddContext context) {
		// is object for add request a TermClass?
        if (context.getNewObject() instanceof BusinessClass) {
            return new AddBusinessClassFeature(this);
        }

        return super.getAddFeature(context);
	}

	@Override
	public ICreateFeature[] getCreateFeatures() {
		return new ICreateFeature[] { new CreateBusinessClassFeature(this) };
	}

}



I keep trying. I'll also post my further questions on this topic, if you don't mind.

Best regards,

Nikolai

After months of break, I have now found little bit of time to make this example "complete".

I can now save my own POJO's (non-EMF objects) with XStream in a "repository" file and when opening the editor, its load the objects from a "repository" file.

I think it is a good simple example of how to use Graphiti without EMF.

The project is attached and how to get it run, see the README.txt including in the project.

Best regards,

Nikolai

P.S.

surprising when one googling for "graphiti example with non emf" he will find this forum as the first entry...

Hi

Where can I find DomainModelChangeListener class as mentioned in graphiti help for non-emf models.

I want to achieve following:
drag a java class and drop on diagram editor.
I only want to use add feature of grahiti as for now

This listener only depends on the domain you are using, so in this case it
would be a listener to JDT. In general Graphiti relies on being notified
when any of the domain objects shown on a diagram changes; an according
update needs to be triggered then. Unfortunatly I'm not familiar with JDT to
know what exactly you would need to register.

There's an example on how to do dupport drag&drop from the project explorer
in the tutorial. Did you have a look at that?

Hi,

We are using the example attached in this post as a reference for creating graphical representations of non-EMF models.

In my case, I do not want to drag and drop the domain objects from pallete. I have an context menu action in the Jface tree-viewer.I want the graphical representation of the object to be added in the diagram editor on click of this particular action.

Any pointers around this?

Hi,

I get it done in a follow way (with drag & drop): I have a TreeView with my custom, Non-EMF Objects and an editor. If I drag & drop an object from the TreeView into the editor, I create a new "Binding" with AddFeature to the diagram.

Unfortunately, my "Example" does not work anymore, after updating Graphiti to the 0.9x version. I need some time, to correct the code and test it. After that, I will upload it here.

Best regards,

Nikolai

In my context menu action class I do the following to open up the editor.

final String diagramTypeId = "test.graphiti.nonemf.diagram.DiagramType";

			final Diagram diagram = Graphiti.getPeCreateService()
					.createDiagram(diagramTypeId,
							"test.graphiti.nonemf.diagram.DiagramType", false);

			final String editorID = NonEmfDiagramEditor.DIAGRAM_EDITOR_ID;

			IFile diagramFile = project.getFile("Test" + "." + "diagram");

			URI uri = URI.createPlatformResourceURI(diagramFile.getFullPath()
					.toString(), true);

			TransactionalEditingDomain editingDomain = FileService
					.createEmfFileForDiagram(uri, diagram);
			String providerId = "test.graphiti.nonemf.diagram.DiagramTypeProvider";
			DiagramEditorInput editorInput = new DiagramEditorInput(
					EcoreUtil.getURI(diagram), editingDomain, providerId, true);

			IDiagramTypeProvider dtyProvider = ExtensionManager.getSingleton()
					.createDiagramTypeProvider(providerId);

			PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getActiveWorkbenchWindow()
					.getActivePage().openEditor(editorInput, editorID);
this.createExampleStructure(dtyProvider, editingDomain, diagram,
					doaminObject);


And in the createExampleStructure function, I call the Add feature for the domain object as follows:

private void createExampleStructure(final IDiagramTypeProvider ddtp,
			final TransactionalEditingDomain editingDomain,
			final Diagram diagram, DomainObject domainObject) {

		int x = 20;
		int y = 20;

		AddContext addcontext = new AddContext();
		IFeatureProvider featureprovider = ddtp.getFeatureProvider();

		AddDomainClassFeature addFvFeature = new AddDomainClassFeature(
				featureprovider);

		addcontext.setNewObject(domainObject);
		addcontext.setTargetContainer(diagram);

		addcontext.setX(x);
		addcontext.setY(y);

		if (addFvFeature.canAdd(addcontext)) {
			addFvFeature.add(addcontext);
		}

	}


With this I get an Error "Cannot modify resource set without a write transaction"

Is this the right way to do or am I missing something?

Hi Hemlata,

I have uploaded my example to github: https://github.com/kumarunster/phirea.public/tree/master/test.graphiti.nonemf

please check it out and look at two dnd-packages/classes (Drag/Drop-Listener).

Thanks Nikolai for the example.

I can now successfully add the rectangular shapes programmatically in my diagram editor.

In my case DiagramTypeProvider was not initialised properly since I open the editor programtically.

I now set the TransactionEditingDomain and the DiagramEditor that is created in above code to my DiagramTypeProvider. I use the following code to add the pictogram for the domainObject

	AddContext addContext = new AddContext();
		addContext.setNewObject(domainObject);

		addContext.setLocation(200, 300);
		addContext.setSize(100, 200);
		addContext.setTargetContainer(diagram);
		dtyProvider.getFeatureProvider()
				.addIfPossible(addContext);


It just works great now.

Using the attached project from this thread I am trying to get the properties view be filled with the properties of the current selection in the diagram but I am somehow unable to get it working. Tried to implement IPropertySource within the domain model objects but that doesn't seem to be enough. Any idea what I am missing here / what is required to get the properties view filled with the properties of the currently selected figure in the diagram?

thanks in advance,
Lars

Lars,

did you have a look into the tutorial? There is a section that deals with
registering tabbed property sheets. In the filter implementation you will
need to exchange the Graphiti link service (will work only for EObjects)
with the implementation you use to to link your POJO domain objects to the

Hi ,

I use the example in this post as reference for creating Graphiti diagrams.The latest code that is posted on this thread works for me in version 0.9.1 perfectly.

I have recently migrated my code from version 0.8.2 to 0.9.1 with which my code does not seem to work.I am doing nothing different apart from replacing the code with appropriate API of 0.9.1.

I use the following code in my Action class to open the editor:

            IWorkbenchPage page = PlatformUI.getWorkbench()
                    .getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActivePage();

            final IEditorInput editorInput = RepositoryUtils.getEditorInput();

            final DiagramTypeProvider dtyProvider = (DiagramTypeProvider) 
            ExtensionManager.getSingleton().createDiagramTypeProvider(
                            DIAGRAM_TYPE_PROVIDER_ID);

            final Diagram diagram = Graphiti.getPeCreateService()
                    .createDiagram(DIAGRAM_TYPE, "Test Diagram",
                            false);

            final TestDiagramEditor diagramEditor = new TestDiagramEditor();

            dtyProvider.init(diagram, diagramEditor);

           page.openEditor(editorInput,TestDiagramEditor.DIAGRAM_EDITOR_ID);


And the code for getEditorInput() of RepositoryUtils is as follows:

public static IEditorInput getEditorInput() throws Exception {

        private final static String DIAGRAM_NAME = "NonEmf.diagramNonEmf";
        String diagramFileName = "";
        String dataFileName = "";
        
        final IWorkspaceRoot root = ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace().getRoot();

        IPath path = root.getLocation();
        dataFileName = path +  "/files/NonEmf.xml";
        diagramFileName = path +  "/files/NonEmf.diagramNonEmf";

        final IProject project = root.getProject("files");

        if (!project.exists()) {
               project.create(null);

        }
           if (!(project.isOpen())) {
            project.open(null);
        }
      
        IFile diagramFile = project.getFile(DIAGRAM_NAME);
        URI emfURI = URI.createURI(diagramFile.toString());

        TestDiagramEditorInput result = null;

        if (emfURI != null) {
                    
            URI diagramUri = emfURI.appendFragment("/0");
         
           result = new TestDiagramEditorInput(diagramUri, null);
            result.setDataFileName(dataFileName);
            result.setDiagramFileName(diagramFileName);
        }
    return result;
    }
}

The same thing used to work for me for version 0.8.2. Now I do not get any error but the diagram file is not created and when I open the editor since there is no diagram file under the given path following message is shown on editor :"No Diagram found for URI 'L/files/NonEmf.diagramNonEmf#/0"

Hi Nikolai,

I use your example as reference.I just need info on the way you use the xml files and diagram files .Initially do we need to create this files or they are created programatically ??

Hemlata,

it seems the storing of the file is missing. The editor will need a
persisted file containing the diagram to start. But I wonder why this could
have worked in 0.8, as this should have been a prerequisite there as well...

Hi Michael,

Thanks for reply.Now that some how my editor comes up with a persisted file, I get Nullpointer errors for getEditDomain() when using "addIfPossible()" method.

I use the following code to add my object to diagram:


   AddContext addContext = new AddContext();
        addContext.setNewObject(object);

        addContext.setLocation(x, y);
        addContext.setSize(100, 200);
        addContext.setTargetContainer(diagram);
        final PictogramElement pictogram =
              dtyProvider.getFeatureProvider().addIfPossible(addContext);

Hi Hemlata,

I am happy that my example has helped you.

In fact, the code from the example should be migrated to Graphiti version 0.9.x.

In the Github version of my example (https://github.com/kumarunster/phirea.public/tree/master/test.graphiti.nonemf) you can see the current state of the example, and it runs on 0.9 version of Graphiti, but unfortunately I cannot exactly say (on the fly), what you should change...

In the whole example I'm trying to show, how is it possible to use Graphiti based editors without EMF lock-in of the domain model. If you look at ApplicationWorkbenchWindowAdvisor you have a Tip, how to get the right EditorInput for your Graphiti-Editor.

About my case: In my application I have a datamodel, that is stored in a database and a lot of graphiti-xml-files, that are stored in a database too. The graphiti-xml's are all created programatically from some template-files, and all the referenced objects in that diagram files are drag-n-dropped from my "Repository". That files are copied, if a EditorInput is produced, in a Temp-Folder from my Application every time the new User-Session is started and a diagram is requested. On Save-Actions they are stored in the DB as BLOB.

If you have any questions, so feel free to ask me and look to the github version of my example!

Best regards,

Nikolai

Hi Nikolai,

Thanks for that valuable info.

I use the github version of your example which works well with Graphiti 0.9.1 as well.
I do get EditorInput for my Graphiti-Editor the way you get it in ApplicationWorkbenchWindowAdvisor.

In my case I do not want to persist graphiti related info in the database.Right now I am just trying to add the pictogram representation of the domain object to the diagram editor with version 0.9.1

I try to create my own Graphiti diagram as follows:

IWorkbenchPage page = PlatformUI.getWorkbench()
                    .getActiveWorkbenchWindow().getActivePage();

      IEditorInput input = RepositoryUtils.getEditorInput();
     
      // Create the pictogram for selected Functional Variable

      final Diagram diagram = Graphiti.getPeCreateService()
                    .createDiagram(DIAGRAM_TYPE, sourceVariable_.getName(),
                            false);
       DiagramEditor editor = new DiagramEditor();
       
       final DiagramTypeProvider dtyProvider = (DiagramTypeProvider) ExtensionManager
                    .getSingleton().createDiagramTypeProvider(
                            DIAGRAM_TYPE_PROVIDER_ID);

       dtyProvider.init(diagram, editor);
         
       page.openEditor(input, DiagramEditor.DIAGRAM_EDITOR_ID);


With this blank graphical editor opens up.And now I try to add the buisness object to this diaram using following stuff:

 AddContext addContext = new AddContext();
            addContext.setNewObject(object);

            addContext.setLocation(200, 300);
            addContext.setSize(100, 200);
            addContext.setTargetContainer(diagram);
            DiagramFeatureProvider fp = (DiagramFeatureProvider) dtyProvider
                    .getFeatureProvider();
           
            AddFunctionalVariableFeature feature = (AddFunctionalVariableFeature)  
                     dtyProvider.getFeatureProvider().getAddFeature(addContext);

            dtyProvider.getFeatureProvider().addIfPossible(addContext);


When using this ,internally it gives Nullpointer exception for getEditDomain() in addIfPossible method as follows:

org.eclipse.core.runtime.AssertionFailedException: null argument:
    at org.eclipse.core.runtime.Assert.isNotNull(Assert.java:85)
    at org.eclipse.core.runtime.Assert.isNotNull(Assert.java:73)
    at org.eclipse.graphiti.ui.editor.DiagramEditor.executeFeature(DiagramEditor.java:1946)
    at org.eclipse.graphiti.features.impl.AbstractFeatureProvider.addIfPossible(AbstractFeatureProvider.java:331)


I suppose that is because my editor is not getting initialised properly.
On debugging I see that my Editor has no TransactionalEditingDomain.With version 0.8.2 I created my own TransactionalEditingDomain and passed that to constructor of DiagramEditor. But in version 0.9 there is no constructor which accepts TransactionalEditingDomain.

I am now stuck at point as how to add the pictogram on the diagram with the new version of Graphiti.

Hemlata,

in case the editing domain is the issue, that is indeed changed between 0.8
and 0.9: instead of passing a domain into the input (FWIW: which caused the
input object to be not as light-weight as it should be - that's the reason
why we removed it) you should now be able to create a special editing domain
in your own subclass of DefaultUpdateBehavior (override
DiagramEditor.createUpdateBehavior to hook in your own instance of that
class). DefaultUpdateBehavior offers a method createEditingDomain you could
override.

HTH,
Michael
