I want to create a prototy of a new application. The navigation of the functions should be done by a Explorer like UI. On the left side is a treeview with the menu. On the right side I habe the Details or lists of the relevant data.

The explorer-tree should be shown as example below
MyPrototy
  + Settings
  !    + Printer
  !    + Users
  + ModuleA
  !    + DataEntries
  !           + View Entries
  !           + Manage Entries
  !           + Print Entries
  + ModuleB
  !           + ...............


Is CNF (Common Navigation Framework) the right way? How can I use it in a e4 application?

I found some tutorials, but the problem is, that i dont know so much about the EMF that I can put in in my application. My problem is often which references must be in which package/project. And how can I create the needed "views" (like h**p://andydunkel.net/eclipse/rcp/2014/05/24/introduction_to_cnf.html - what mean the part "The next step is to add the view to the project by adding it to the org.eclipse.ui.views extension point". What is the right place and how can i do it?)

Thanks for your help

Hi,

I am not sure whether CNF is of much help, but that depends on the
features your tree needs to support.
EMF provides a lot of helper classes and generated adapters to very
efficiently implement a tree viewer youself. You can use the model
explorer of the EMF Client Platform as a start (either extend it or look
at its implementation)

Best regards

Jonas

Thanks for your reply. But I think as a newbie is it very complicate to find out the rigth way (I´m very new on Java World - i came from the windows .NET world and my new company is working with java).

Did someone know a open source project that use EMF/EMF Forms in that way? I mean: On the left side the application navigation and on the rigth side the modules?

Which book(s) are helpfull (maybe in german language) to write a Desktop-Application with multiuser database backend and use of EMF?

Have a nice day

Hi,

yes, as I stated, the EMF Client Platform demo application is following
that scheme. I do not know a single book covering the whole topic, there
are several tutorials, about different sub topics. Of course there are
also trainings and professional support available.

Best regards

Jonas
