hi,

this is a wonderful project. thanks.

i want to know how to create diagrams like this one.

do you have some documents or examples about it?

best regards.

The screenshot shows a tool I've created for an article, see
"Constructing and Visualizing Transformation Chains" at
http://www.eclipse.org/gef3d/website/docs/index.php

If you want to create diagrams like that, the multi-editor example may
be a good starting point. I have described in my blog how to activate
the examples (and I really should write some more official
documentation about that...):
http://jevopisdeveloperblog.blogspot.com/2009/01/gef3d-commi tted-into-svn.html

The screenshot actually shows three UML diagrams (displayed using a
"3d-fied" version of TOPCASED UML), an ER diagram (created with a
quick-and-dirty GEF editor with about 15 classes) and three
trace-models. The latter are the red and green line between the planes.

So, in order to get something like this, you have to
1) 3D-fy your 2D GEF diagram editors (this is briefly explained in the
articles on the documentation page).
2) Create a 3D diagram editor for the inter-model-connections. The
"diagram" plane of the inter-model connections is invisible and it only
servers as a container.
3) If your connected elements on the planes are not aware of the
inter-model (or inter-diagram) connections, you may have a look at the
ConnectedElement-Pattern, described in the articles and found in
package o.e.gef3d.ext

If you have any problems, don't hesitate to post a message here---we
are well aware of the lack of documentation, and we are working on it
(but unfortunately our resources are limited).

Cheers

Jens
