Greetings,

I realise that I'm asking something that has already been asked in one form or another, but I have a task to create class diagram editor: classes with attributes and relations between classes.

I have tried GEF, to complex. GMF was better, but at the end it just didn't work. Graphiti looks perfect. I was looking forward to Graphiti, especially with that library class diagram editor picture at the introduction. Tutorial is great, I did everything and it worked, but there is no tutorial for classes and attributes type of situation.

I see that it's listed as a bug request Bug 364452, but that was 2 years ago. Is there ever going to be an example for that, not just picture?

Maybe it's trivial for some, but creating diagram editors is not my primary field. So, I really need help, pointers, anything...

Again, Graphiti is great and I really like it and want to use it for this kind of situations.

Thank's

You should also check out the newly contributed Siruis project:
http://eclipse.org/sirius/.
Its approach is a declarative specification that is interpreted rather
than programmed with Java.

Sninja,

great that you like Graphiti! Thanks!

Did you see the Filesystems example that's part of the Graphiti examples? It
contains an example that althought it is based on patterns (partially also
IdPattern) schould give you an idea how to set up a list of inner objects
(the example is about folders containing files).

Michael
