[EEF] Is EEF still alive? [message #1398339] Fri, 11 July 2014 00:25 Go to next message

Hi,

I posted a question about getting started with EEF yesterday, I've still
been trying to figure out what I need to do but no luck so far. I also
noticed the last time an EEF tagged question got an answer was back in
2012 and while the project page shows some commits they seem to have
tailed off a lot. Is the EEF project still active or has it died? If it
is no longer active is there a successor I should be looking at?

Can anyone involved in the project please advise? I feel the project (or
one like it) is needed for EMF based MDD.

Thanks, Nigel

I'm wondering the same thing. I've seen some presentations on EEF 2.0, and I can compile the source, but I'm wondering why development seems to have halted and 1.3 seems to be in maintenance mode. I prefer the EEF compact design over EMFForms, but I'm wondering if there's a directional change.

Hi,

by "compact design" do you mean compact layout? If so, it is possible to
achive that by adapting the renderer. As an alternative, it could be
supported by the default renderer using styling. Maybe you open a BR for
this?

Best Regards

Jonas

Hi,

Sorry for the silence on this forum, but EEF is still alive Smile

We continue to mature the 1.X Stream and we're integrating the Eclipse Release train.

We are also working on the 2.X Stream, the core framework is mainly developed and we're currently developing a set of tests, a nice editor to customize your property sheets and a first industrial use case.

Bill,

We have mostly switched everything from EEF to EMF Forms, but have had the same look and feel issues.

So we implemented our own set of renderers which are much more EEF like. Let us know if there is interest and maybe we could thing about releasing a common core.

Regards,
Alain

Hi Alain,

great to hear, that you were able to adapt EMF Forms to your needs.
Would be willing to share the mentioned issues you had with the existing
design? Would you be willing to contribute your alternative?

Best regards

Jonas

Glad to hear it!

Is anyone from the team owning the coms on the forum. The long silence
had me wondering!

Good to hear development is on going, is there an outlook for the
release data?

All the best, Nigel
