I am building a plugin for eclipse that provides a graphical editor.
In this editor, I want to bind some data between an XText model and the SWT widgets. How can I do this while updating the XTextDocument automatically?
Are there existing tools that help with this, or do code generation for this?

By now, I have created with window builder plugin JFace Automatic Databinding with controller class.
it seem that whenever I change the text field which the xtext data model (JString) is bind to, the binding put null/new instance of JString into the JString instance.
so the document isn't familiar with the new JString instance and it is not updated with the new data.

Hi Dana,
the emf model of xtext should only be accessed in a IUnitOfWork while inside the XtextDocument.modify or XtextDocument.readOnly. For Databinding the binding should be against the URI of the EObject and read and write inside the unitOfWork. As far as I know, there is no implementation for the eclipse databinding and xtext yet. Implementation could be similar to those of EMFEditProperties with XtextDocument instead of editing domain.
