About

Hi. I’m Emil. I’m a software developer. Sometimes I get excited about something I managed to solve. This is the place where I write about it.

    Hi,
    I have seen some of your posts they are quite helpful.
    Assuming that you have been developing using the Eclipse GMF framework , I would like to ask you a few questions, i really appreciate if you could give me some ideas.

    I would like to develop a standalone java gui project for a particular subject, which will enable users to load some data files and make operations with their data.
    I would like to visualize the process and provide users with visual tools so that they can run the process graphically. And it is supposed to be a workflow (input–filters–processes–output)
    although I have read many documents and tutorials about GMF, I could not figure out if I can use GMF for my purpose or not, ? can GMF help me to implement a GUI ?(will run standalone not in the eclipse)
    I really appreciate if you throw a little bit light on this confusing matter

    I don’t think you will be able to build a graphical monitoring tool with GMF.
    GMF is meant for building diagram editor which uses a MVC design pattern. You will be able to use the data model from the MVC to perform whatever operations you need.
    You can build your product as eclipse plugin or as standalone product that depends on you.
    GMF is quite difficult to start with (documentation is not sufficient). You could take a look at the tutorials on the GMF webpage to see what GMF can do.

    Cheers,
