Introducing e(fx)clipse

UPDATE Please download the latest version from efxclipse.org People who’ve read my blog in the last few weeks have seen that I invested some time in getting the Eclipse 4 Application Platform running on top of JavaFX. One of the key technologies of JavaFX is that one uses CSS to theme the whole application but […]

Jax 2011: EMF-Databinding talk

I had the pleasure to present EMF-Databinding to interested people on the Model Day at Jax 2011. I’m desperately sorry that people have been unable to install my sources but there has been a misunderstanding I’ll apologize for. Everyone who was at the tutorial should already have the slides and sources but for those who […]

Interesting new feature in EMF-Databinding

I’ve invested sometime into EMF-Databinding to add a new quite interesting feature i guess. Currently we have to problem that if your nested path crosses a multi-valued feature (=java.util.List) at some point the only solution today is to create a volatile transient feature which observes your EList and fire change events but this really clutters […]

Navigating/Querying EMF-Models using XPath

To make the new e4 way of building a complete model from small model pieces – named fragments – more flexible in 4.1, I’ve been developing a JXPath extension which works ontop of the reflective EMF-API. I know that there’s already the possibility to query models using OCL but there are many more people familiar […]

Galileo: EMF-Databinding – Part 5

Though the main focus of this article is going to be the usage of the properties API to setup a TableViewer there are some importanted I didn’t explain in Part 4 of this series. Using the properties API in master-detail (continued) Showing validation states The first interesting thing is how to present validation errors to […]

Galileo: EMF-Databinding – Part 4

Using the properties API in master-detail In the last blog entry we saw how to set up a the left part of our example application which is a JFace-TreeViewer. This blog article deals with the upper right part of the application who allows the user to edit the data of the selected project in the […]

Galileo: EMF-Databinding – Part 3

Setting up a TreeViewer with EMF-Databinding The RCP-Application With this article we are starting to write our RCP-Application which uses Eclipse-Databinding. I’m not going into detail how you create an RCP-Application (I simply use the PDE-Wizard) but assume that you are familiar with this kind of thing. 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 […]
