I just love you, i.e. your ideas.
They are exactly what I, so far without success, insist on in my project:
- remove EMF form GEF with EMF requirement to me for initial step;
- do not throw away existing experience and code (of my company Workflow
Graphical Designer)in Swing
- the initial design, vision errors may result in desire to remake all in

I am working since a few months on this topic. We have a Swing Application
which we want to integrate in Eclipse. We decided to do this in little
steps. One of the first is to integrate the application as far as possible
over the Swing Bridge. And the results are really good. We integrated our
editor, some views, resources and the most actions so far. We hope to
release our Alpha version in February.
The really nice thing is, that we could take allmost all our existing Swing
Wizards and so on from the old application. Only some wizards for Project
and new Resource creation had be made new. The communication between AWT /
Swing and SWT is also runnig well. All events (Mouse, Keys..) are being
transfered from one toolkit to the other. The only problem is the
synchronization of the Swing and SWT thread. You often get "Invalid thread
access" messages. But this is solvable.
Gentleware also integrated their modelling tool Poseidon in Eclipse over the
Swing-Bridge. If you wanna see how it looks like, here the download page:
You need the Professional version. Their integration is not so nice (I think
they did it really fast). But I think they work on it in the future. But
here you can see that it works ;-)
