Tom,

sounds good what I'm reading from wiki

.....
> improve usability of Eclipse-Databinding by providing a high-level
Widget-API
> promote reuse of rich UI code across Eclipse (JFace/SWT), ...
> simplify rich UI development by providing simpler facades and
powerful binding
.....

but there's already another eclipse project (Riena) also providing a
high-level api to simplify the work with widgets and databinding

is it really a good idea to have two projects trying to do the same ?
the Riena team ist just working to make use of their ridgets also
stand-alone without the Riena-specific things

and what I've seen and tested till now from Riena they did a great job
and simplify the work with widgets and databinding, add markers,
validation etc.

Hi Ekke,

I know Riena and the people working on it. It's right that Riena also
aims to provide a higherlevel API to ease writing Databinding
applications (including validation, ...).

Still I think UFacekit has many unique features to provide offer e.g.
(GWT is completely out of scope for Riena, ...). I don't see in Rienas
code base currently a Swing implementation though I think I can
rememeber that I talked with Christian about Swing-Observables once. So
Riena could be a customer of our observables then :-)

I added a reference to the Project Proposal pointing to Riena.
