common XML framework [message #128339] Thu, 07 August 2008 14:52 Go to next message
Eclipse UserFriend
Originally posted by: j12222r.fastmail.net

I would like to ask if there is a common model for dealing with XML within
Eclipse. Would that be Ecore, or the WST DOM model, or is every bundle
using its own implementation?

So far it seems that the Structured Source editors all depend on EMF
packages. Are they internally using Ecore models?

The only DOM model that I could spot was the
org.eclipse.wst.xml.core.internal.documentDOMModelImpl. But this doesn't
seem to use Ecore.

The Ant editor seems to be based directly on the generic Eclipse text
editor, and the plugin.xml reuses the Ant editor. Does that mean they
don't have anything to do with XML editing?

Regards,
John

EMF provides something more similar to JAXB, i.e., a mechanism for
binding XML onto high-level Java APIs.

WTP's DOM implementation is a specialized DOM that supports keeping a
source view of the DOM in sync with the DOM itself. It also has
sophisticated notification mechanisms for keeping something else in sync
with the DOM. They also have EMF2DOM adapters for keeping an EMF model
in sync with the underlying DOM.

Much of WTP depends on EMF models. SSE's EMF2DOM adapters likely are
the reason for the dependency on EMF.

Yes, DOM is just DOM.

You might want to look at this tutorial to see if what this produces
meets your specific needs:
