Hi,

Has anyone looked at generating a RAP based viewing application rather
than a RCP based on from the ECore model? If not then can someone
outline the parts of the code that would need to change to accommodate
such a change?

Thx.

David

I was told RAP folks, but have not confirmed myself, that a generated
EMF editor (they didn't specify RCP or otherwise) generally works except
for some issues with cell editors in the properties view. Probably it's
best just to try it and report back the problems you find. Then we can
think about how best to help address those.

David,

I also would like to know how a EMF.editor can be turned into a
RAP application. At Eclipse Summit Europe I talked with the RAP folks.
They said that it should be no problem in principle. There might only be
some detail issues with some not so common widgets. They couldn't
give a more specific answer at that point because they were not that
familar with EMF.

A tutorial or a how-to about turning a EMF.editor into a RAP application
would be cool. Maybe the RAP folks can give more specific info now
so I added this post to their newsgroup.

I could provide a EMF.editor sample plugin and maybe a RAP expert
could transfrom it into a RAP application and document how it is done?

Regards,

Reinhold

Hi, guys!


I tried to generate a RAP application with the library model example.


The .model and .edit plugins were easy to integrate. I just added the ff
plugins to the target platform:

org.eclipse.emf.common
org.eclipse.emf.ecore
org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi
org.eclipse.emf.edit


Then generated it from the .genmodel as per normal.
(I suppose, at this point, some useful RAP+EMF applications can already be
built...)


Somewhat expectedly, the generated .editor was a bit more problematic.
For starters, it had dependencies on
org.eclipse.emf.edit.ui
org.eclipse.emf.common.ui

both of which had 'Require-Bundle' on org.eclipse.ui.* plugins. I
temporarily changed their manifest.mfs to use org.eclipse.rap.ui.*
instead. I guess in the future we can either separate the emf.ui plugins,
or use Import-Package instead of Require-Bundle. (Though I'm not sure of
the effects of these).


Afterwards, there were still some compile problems, mostly due to
widgets/classes not being available in RAP. For example, FileDialog is not
available. Not such a big problem, though, I commented those out for now.

Next I had to change the RCP Application class from IApplication to
IEntryPoint which is the equivalent in RAP, and added the entrypoint
extension to plugin.xml.

At this point I was able to run the app and see it on my browser (great!).
It looks similar to a generated RCP application. However, when I opened an
editor there were some runtime errors.

java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: DELETE
at
org.eclipse.emf.edit.ui.action.EditingDomainActionBarContrib utor.init
(EditingDomainActionBarContributor.java:150)

ActionFactory.DELETE wasn't found in the RAP classes. Fine. I removed the
EditorActionBarContributor temporarily. The next one was:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/eclipse/swt/events/MouseListener
at
org.examples.library.presentation.LibraryEditor.createPages( LibraryEditor.java:891)

This was due to the ViewerPane class from emf.ui. I also removed it
temporarily and finally I was able to see the (familiar) tree view editor
in my browser!

And, as Ed mentioned, I also had some problems with the properties view.
No properties appeared whenever I select an object in the editor. I'm not
sure if this is the same, though, since Ed mentioned cell editors. I
wasn't able to perform much editing too (because I removed the
ActionBarContributor), but it should be easy to add in the future.

That's about it... Anybody else have other (hopefully more successful)
experiences? :-)

Ron

Hi,

I've been working with EMF quite a while and it would be very interesting to
see how much is missing to get a sample editor working. From my point of
view I see at least two problems:

1.) missing cell editors => RAP's property view is read-only. Editing of
model element attributes would not work
2.) Workspace is shared between sessions => the same file could be opened
multiple times for editing - this could lead to a lot of unfortunate
consequences...

But still you never know before you have tried. So feel free to send me a
simple sample editor and I will see what I can find out.

Frank,

I made a new entry in the eclipse wiki that describes how to generate the
editor
and how to use it. See http://wiki.eclipse.org/EMF_Editor_goes_RAP
I also uploaded a zip file to the wiki that contains the generated plugins.
http://wiki.eclipse.org/images/b/b7/SimplePOPlugins.zip

It would be really cool if you (or somebody else) could turn this plugins
into RAP applications and document how this is done on that wiki page!

To edit the wiki page you need a eclipse bugzilla account which can be
registered here: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/createaccount.cgi

> 1.) missing cell editors => RAP's property view is read-only. Editing of
> model element attributes would not work

This limits the editor to a viewer but the RAP team will probably implement
editing in the future?

Best Regards,

Reinhold

I did some first investigations on that topic and it seems that this will
take some more effort than I assumed. There are at least hacks of
org.eclipse.emf.edit.ui, org.eclipse.emf.common.ui ui and org.eclipse.ui.ide
necessary to have a chance to get things somewhat working. I will not go
into detail here since I'm still too far away to draw any conclusions
whether it will work or not at the end. Unfortunately I don't have the time
to dig deeper into this at the moment, so results will take some time.

Frank,

I have quite a bit of time over Christmas to hack on anything I want
because it's personal time. I'd be most interested in helping out with
this. If I had a little help getting started on how to set things up on
the RAP side of things (to test it out and understand where things are
working poorly right now) I could likely make good progress on the EMF
side of things. (I'm also interested in the GWT stuff that Tom Schindl
is working on; he's going help get me started with a bit of spoon
feeding as well.)

Would that work for you?

This sounds like fun! We can take our complementary in-depth and

this stuff that will be most excellent. We can talk about strategies
for longer term support. Perhaps we need specialized RAP flavors for
some of these GUI components (as we need for GWT)...

I'm really looking forward to next week. See you there!

Did anything come out of this meeting of minds?

I have an existing AJAX application using Dojo, JSONRPC (from
oss.metaparadigm.com) and the Plexus lightweight container on the
Servlet end with the security component, request handling logic and JPOX
OR layer. Most of this was generated using the Dentaku project on
codehaus, now sadly inactive.

I'd really like to have a similar setup but with these generated
technologies: RAP or RCP front end, JSONRPC, Equinox, Jetty, Hibernate.
But am finsing it a little hard to get started. I have not found how
people are hooking the RAP front end into the servlet request handling,
any pointers?

Thx.

David

I have https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=213988 which

(RAPified) Library RCP application. But then I became distracted and
haven't had time to look at it since.

David,

I was told RAP folks, but have not confirmed myself, that a generated
EMF editor (they didn't specify RCP or otherwise) generally works except
for some issues with cell editors in the properties view. Probably it's
best just to try it and report back the problems you find. Then we can
think about how best to help address those.

David,

I also would like to know how a EMF.editor can be turned into a
RAP application. At Eclipse Summit Europe I talked with the RAP folks.
They said that it should be no problem in principle. There might only be
some detail issues with some not so common widgets. They couldn't
give a more specific answer at that point because they were not that
familar with EMF.

A tutorial or a how-to about turning a EMF.editor into a RAP application
would be cool. Maybe the RAP folks can give more specific info now
so I added this post to their newsgroup.

I could provide a EMF.editor sample plugin and maybe a RAP expert
could transfrom it into a RAP application and document how it is done?

Regards,

Reinhold

Hi, guys!


I tried to generate a RAP application with the library model example.


The .model and .edit plugins were easy to integrate. I just added the ff
plugins to the target platform:

org.eclipse.emf.common
org.eclipse.emf.ecore
org.eclipse.emf.ecore.xmi
org.eclipse.emf.edit


Then generated it from the .genmodel as per normal.
(I suppose, at this point, some useful RAP+EMF applications can already be
built...)


Somewhat expectedly, the generated .editor was a bit more problematic.
For starters, it had dependencies on
org.eclipse.emf.edit.ui
org.eclipse.emf.common.ui

both of which had 'Require-Bundle' on org.eclipse.ui.* plugins. I
temporarily changed their manifest.mfs to use org.eclipse.rap.ui.*
instead. I guess in the future we can either separate the emf.ui plugins,
or use Import-Package instead of Require-Bundle. (Though I'm not sure of
the effects of these).


Afterwards, there were still some compile problems, mostly due to
widgets/classes not being available in RAP. For example, FileDialog is not
available. Not such a big problem, though, I commented those out for now.

Next I had to change the RCP Application class from IApplication to
IEntryPoint which is the equivalent in RAP, and added the entrypoint
extension to plugin.xml.

At this point I was able to run the app and see it on my browser (great!).
It looks similar to a generated RCP application. However, when I opened an
editor there were some runtime errors.

java.lang.NoSuchFieldError: DELETE
at
org.eclipse.emf.edit.ui.action.EditingDomainActionBarContrib utor.init
(EditingDomainActionBarContributor.java:150)

ActionFactory.DELETE wasn't found in the RAP classes. Fine. I removed the
EditorActionBarContributor temporarily. The next one was:

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/eclipse/swt/events/MouseListener
at
org.examples.library.presentation.LibraryEditor.createPages( LibraryEditor.java:891)

This was due to the ViewerPane class from emf.ui. I also removed it
temporarily and finally I was able to see the (familiar) tree view editor
in my browser!

And, as Ed mentioned, I also had some problems with the properties view.
No properties appeared whenever I select an object in the editor. I'm not
sure if this is the same, though, since Ed mentioned cell editors. I
wasn't able to perform much editing too (because I removed the
ActionBarContributor), but it should be easy to add in the future.

That's about it... Anybody else have other (hopefully more successful)
experiences? :-)

Hi,

I've been working with EMF quite a while and it would be very interesting to
see how much is missing to get a sample editor working. From my point of
view I see at least two problems:

1.) missing cell editors => RAP's property view is read-only. Editing of
model element attributes would not work
2.) Workspace is shared between sessions => the same file could be opened
multiple times for editing - this could lead to a lot of unfortunate
consequences...

But still you never know before you have tried. So feel free to send me a
simple sample editor and I will see what I can find out.


Ciao
Frank

Frank,

I made a new entry in the eclipse wiki that describes how to generate the
editor
and how to use it. See http://wiki.eclipse.org/EMF_Editor_goes_RAP
I also uploaded a zip file to the wiki that contains the generated plugins.
http://wiki.eclipse.org/images/b/b7/SimplePOPlugins.zip

It would be really cool if you (or somebody else) could turn this plugins
into RAP applications and document how this is done on that wiki page!

To edit the wiki page you need a eclipse bugzilla account which can be
registered here: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/createaccount.cgi

> 1.) missing cell editors => RAP's property view is read-only. Editing of

This limits the editor to a viewer but the RAP team will probably implement
editing in the future?

Best Regards,

Reinhold

Hi,

I did some first investigations on that topic and it seems that this will
take some more effort than I assumed. There are at least hacks of
org.eclipse.emf.edit.ui, org.eclipse.emf.common.ui ui and org.eclipse.ui.ide
necessary to have a chance to get things somewhat working. I will not go
into detail here since I'm still too far away to draw any conclusions
whether it will work or not at the end. Unfortunately I don't have the time
to dig deeper into this at the moment, so results will take some time.

Frank,

I have quite a bit of time over Christmas to hack on anything I want
because it's personal time. I'd be most interested in helping out with
this. If I had a little help getting started on how to set things up on
the RAP side of things (to test it out and understand where things are
working poorly right now) I could likely make good progress on the EMF
side of things. (I'm also interested in the GWT stuff that Tom Schindl
is working on; he's going help get me started with a bit of spoon
feeding as well.)

Hi Ed,

I would like to suggest to dedicate an hour (or more as needed) for this
next week. We could sit together before or after the Runtime Summit and
do an initial setup and some hacking. Just be aware that my EMF
knowledge is pretty superficial.

Would that work for you?

Jochen

Jochen,

This sounds like fun! We can take our complementary in-depth and
superficial knowledge and combine it into a fully in-depth whole. If
the result is that I have a setup I can use on my machine to play with
this stuff that will be most excellent. We can talk about strategies
for longer term support. Perhaps we need specialized RAP flavors for
some of these GUI components (as we need for GWT)...

I'm really looking forward to next week. See you there!

I'll join you guys, I have superficial knowledge of both RAP and EMF :)

We have to cover all sides of the spectrum you know :)

Cheers,

Did anything come out of this meeting of minds?

I have an existing AJAX application using Dojo, JSONRPC (from
oss.metaparadigm.com) and the Plexus lightweight container on the
Servlet end with the security component, request handling logic and JPOX
OR layer. Most of this was generated using the Dentaku project on
codehaus, now sadly inactive.

I'd really like to have a similar setup but with these generated
technologies: RAP or RCP front end, JSONRPC, Equinox, Jetty, Hibernate.
But am finsing it a little hard to get started. I have not found how
people are hooking the RAP front end into the servlet request handling,
any pointers?

Thx.

David

David,

I have https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=213988 which
contains a RAPified version of the EMF UI support and a hand modified
(RAPified) Library RCP application. But then I became distracted and
haven't had time to look at it since.
