Re: [mylyn-vex-dev] documentation or example of use of vex in an applet

The repository at github contains an Eclipse Plug-in project. You need to get it (via 'git clone git://' or as download and import it into Eclipse.

To run it, create a new launch configuration of type "Eclipse Application" (the defaults should work fine in the first place). You can find the interesting code in ft.vex.examples.dialog.CommentDialog.

Hi Jonas,

there is this little example project that I built for an article in the
German Eclipse Magazin: It uses Vex
as a widget within a dialog. This might hopefully be what you were
looking for.

Vex does not have a public API yet, this means
1) we give no guarantee yet that everything will stay as it is today
2) if you need any functionality exposed, it is no problem to do this.

If you find any problems or need help, don't hesitate to contact us.

Best Regards,

the documentation on sourceforge says "The Vex editor widget is
available as a pure Java, cross-platform component with bindings to
Swing and SWT. Developers can re-use this widget, for example as an
applet in a web-based application."

I would like to do that. I plan to setup a Wiki to collaboratively edit
some XML files and would like to pack vex into an applet that is a word
processor / WYSIWYG editor that validates the input client side against
a XSD and does some smart auto completion. At best it uses a nice CSS to
hide as much XML-syntax as possible to be non-programmer-friendly, but
thats optional.

Has something like this been done before? Any project where I can see it
working? :)
I am not familiar with Vex or Eclipse RCP stuff but would be willing to
invest some time to get into it, as its for my master thesis...
Any hints for me?
