Hey,

I was discussing the other day a choice of a web framework/platform for
a web based application and some of the requirements we discussed
reminded me the modeled ui of the e4 platform and the nested
IEclipseContext with DI thrown in.

That made me wonder, if something like this has already been developed
on top on Eclispe e4 framework:

Basically, the idea would be to have a general application layout
defined by e4 UI model, rendered as HTML5 (possibly perusing Bootstrap
alyout), acting as a sort of portlet and DI container for the displayed
parts.

Any of this sounds familiar? interesting?

The only framework I know doing Web+e4 is vaaclipse although if I got
your right this is not what you are looking for.

I'm interested...Wink. We'd discussed using the model early on in Orion's development but decided that the design model for Orion wasn't a good fit since they wanted each page to be inherently simple.

This seems like a natural fit to me since the UI Model can be viewed as a description of a canonical user interface, deep enough to describe the Eclipse IDE.

I don't see anything inherently difficult about this at least on the server side (where it can support EMF...). You may run into some issues synching the server side and the browser page, perhaps you should look a RAP to see how they do their synchronization of SWT events.

Let me know if I can help. You'll know you've won when someone writes a dependency injector for JavaScript...Wink.

Maybe, RAP's new messaging protocol could be used (without RAP itself, though) to sync HTML5 objects with the server side objects and/or UI model.
