Could you please provide steps to create start to end gef applicaiton and

Hi

If you are new to the eclipse plugin development use these hints:

1.)
You must know how to write and start a simple eclipse plugin.
The "hello world" for eclipse developer.

2.)
You must familar with the action/editor/view entries in the plugin.xml
http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-action-contribution/ Contributing%20Actions%20to%20the%20Eclipse%20Workbench.html

3.)
Read the http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-GEF-Draw2d/GEF-Draw2 d.html
for the basics of Draw2D. (GEF used the Draw2D)

4.)
Read http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-GEF-editor/gef-schem a-editor.html

5.)
Get the source of the GEF DigitalSimulator

I have read,debug code, read, debug code, read,.... 3 months to develope a
simple 'usefull' GEF plugin. After this time you can work with this
perfect(!!!) framework.

see a demo of my result at: (*flaunt*)
http://www.tarragon-software.com//jacob/downloads/demo/demo. html
(Note:the GEF part is in the middle of the flash demo)

greetings

andreas

I would suggest you to go over tutorials on the GEF homepage. Some of them
point to sample applications
that are stored in Eclipse CVS, so if you want to reach them, you should
check them out from repository.
Unfortunately I didn't find any files on the Eclipse's site.

Next thing is you should understand how to use Draw2d
(org.eclipse.draw2d.examples project from CVS).

Then you could go through org.eclipse.gef.examples.* projects. There are few
samples that show how to
create basic issues you may want to use in future.

And the last but not least: Eclipse help.

Regards,
Pawel

Hi Andreas,

I saw the flash demo of your product and it is very impressive.

Can you tell me whether the snap lines facility I saw in the demo is
available as part of the GEF or you have written the whole thing
yourself??? If you have written it all yourself, can you tell me, was it
easy to write that in GEF as I am exploring GEF to do just that for one of
my project? Can you give some pointers as to how to accomplish sanp lines
or grouplayout/springlayout???

Thanks
Suresh
