Now that’s cool

If you are following my blog you may have noticed that I invested some hours this weekend in Eclipse-Databinding and GWT. It was Saturday in the evening when I got the Eclipse-Databinding working inside GWT and I started searching for a decent Table and TableTree-Widget (I looked at the code in the gwt-incubator but that […]

Eclipse-Databinding 3.5 for GWT

I’m a big fan of GWT but one of the real pain points when developing GWT applications is that there’s no databinding framework [*] available to synchronize your domain objects and UI-Widgets.

Still I’d like to describe the application design […]

Galileo: EMF-Databinding – Part 2

Introduce the new Properties API In 3.5 Eclipse-Databinding introduces a new API which should be used in favor of the 3.4 EMFObservables-Factory because it provides many features who couldn’t be provided by the old API (e.g. the new API provides you with the possibility to observe nested attributes in Table/TreeViewers, allows you do observe different […]

Galileo: EMF-Databinding – Part 1

Creation of the Domain-Model Before we can start with the domain model for our application we need to know what the model is going to be for. So let me explain the application we are going to write in this blog series: Suppose the Eclipse Foundation hired you to write an application which allows them […]

Galileo: Improved EMF-Databinding-Support

I’m happy to announce that EMF-2.5 will come along with support for the brand new Eclipse-Databinding API coming with Eclipse-Galileo. A big kudos goes to Matthew Hall who reviewed my patches and helped me shapeing the support and it’s documentation (more in bug 262160). I got voted in some weeks ago as a committer on […]
