I have followed some tutorials to develop a GEF editor as Eclipse Platform plugin. I'm very interested in using this kind of GEF editors in a web environment. My first option is to use RAP.

There are some effort to integrate both technologies and I read about it:

First of all there is an incubator project about it (http://git.eclipse.org/c/rap/incubator/org.eclipse.rap.incubator.gef.git), but it is almost abandoned.It seems that a maintainer is needed to continue the previous job (http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/625069/).

There is an open thread in the mailing list talking about detaching GEF form Eclipse to be modular enough to be integrated in other platforms (like Web ones) (http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/gef-dev/msg01580.html). But it was a conceptual discussion.

The thing is there is some examples working like these ones:

- PShelf Nebula port for RAP (http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/263094/ , __ttp://xdocreport-rap.opensagres.cloudbees.net/xdocreport?startup=fr.opensagres.xdocreport.eclipse.ui.application__)

- SWT Flex (http://www.eclipse.org/e4/development/readme/readme_e4_0.9.html#R-Demos-Flex)

I prefer the pure Web standards (HTML + CSS + Javascript) approach, avoiding third party libraries like Flex or silverlight.

Is there some point to start integrating a GEF editor into RAP? Should I do this integration manually? Is there a better alternative like GWT + GEF (__ttp://gefgwt.org/__)?

This sounds very good. Some documentation would be appreciated too, because I found a lack in this aspect. Thank you very much Arnaud for your effort!

Hey Arnaud,

i saw some changes in the git repository recently. Especially a port to 2.1. Are you working on 2.2 as well?

Thanks for maintaining Smile


Philippe
