In general, Eclipse is the good piece of software to use when it come to |
implement technical tools. Many languages has built there tools on
Eclipse and provide such editing, debugging, compilation/export (to VML
in your case) capabilities.
In your case, the tricky part is that you want to have 2 editors for a
single file (a graphical one and a textual one). Some projects at
Eclipse.org (such as the SCA or BPEL designers) have implemented that.
However, there are several ways of doing it, You could for example
create a model API for your language concepts with EMF and use XText to
implement textual part (re-implementing the grammar in XText language)
and GMF for the graphical part. Or you could re-use your already
existing model API and implement directly a Text Editor and a GEF editor
that would rely on it...
