I totally agree with you. Unfortunately, there is so much
resistance of XWT solution in eclipse community, and even in e4 committers.
Anyway, Soyatec will keep XWT up when it is possible. Please
fill free to report bugs and request new features in eclipse bugzilla. Any
suggestion and feedback are welcome.

Thanks for the response from
As far as the tooling goes, its state really makes no difference to me. I am
perfectly fine with using the eclipse/whichever XML editor to code the ui. To
be honest, this is also my preferred way e.g. when working with android apps.
Many other developers share this opinion, I guess.

On a side note, Tom's pointers about XTend are very interesting. I will make
sure to give this a try. However I don't believe this will catch on in the
mainstream. People just do not have the time to learn a new language these

As for XWT engine, it is mature enough.
I just downloaded Juno M5 and installed E4 M5 on top of it in order to build a
RCP / Eclipse 4 app.
After playing around with the modeled workbench / application model, I decided
to give XWT a try.
- Using XWT designer, dropping stuff from the pallete results in no change of
the underlying .xwt file;
- Tried to open the file with "XWT Editor" - the part loads
infinitely and nothing happens.
- Are these known issues or should I go forward and open bugs?
- Are XWT designer / viewer known to not work and should I stick to editing the
XML by hand when using XWT?
