Diagram Editor [message #222843] Wed, 13 September 2006 21:46 Go to next message

Hi,

I'm working on an RCP based Project that needs to implement a engineering
flowchart editor. It will have a palette with some components that can be
dropped in the diagram and edited, customizing their attributes. This
modifications must be reflected in the business model and the diagram must
be updated when by some other means the business model gets updated.

What's the best option for these requirements: Doing it from scratch,
using GEF, or use some other plugin?
Is there any other plugin, open source or commercial, that is built on top
of GEF or not, or even a SWT solution, that satisfies the requirements and
is especifically made for engineering flowcharts? I have heard of JGo. Has
someone worked with it? Do you know if it is easy to configure and
integrate with the RCP platform?

Thanks in advance

Take a look at eclipse.org/gmf. It's based on gef and uses EMF - the
eclipse modeling framework for the business model.

This GMF has some wizards that help you generate an editor with your
requirements.
