Has anyone had any success getting XML to work in VE?

I am making an editor where I can draw figures from primitives: line, box,

I am working on the primitives now for Java, but we eventually want it to
make XML instead.
So I need to extend VE to use XML instead of (as well as) java and then add
the primitives to the palette.

There has been some talk in the documentation of extending VE to also do
XML.
I was thinking there could be two ways to do this, either swap in an XML
editor for the current Java one and then add the palette, or extend the
current editor to include XML and then add to the palette.
Also hoping to add the ability to group a set of primitives and make them a
composite object in some way or another.

Use GEF instead.

Yes, that was my thought too. Or perhaps better yet, define a model and
use GMF and EMF since that will get your XML serialization for free.

But then again, because the drawing in my req spec looks exactly like the

Hi all,

For our customer, we have extended VE to read/write the GUI in XML. You can
find a a screenshot:
http://www.soyatec.com/services/vex-ccr.png

And we have added some new features such as TabOrder editor.

We'd like to contribute in VE. I have discusseed this issue with Joe
WINCHEST last Match or April. Now, we didn't make some progress. If someone
can help us to join in VE, our effort could be profitable for all.

Best regards
Yves YANG
