EMF Web Tools: A Project to Facilitate the Generation of Domain-Specific, Browser-based, Visual Editors for 2D Graph-like Representations of EMF-based Models

by Jacob Beard for Eclipse Foundation

To lower the usability and portability threshold of the Eclipse Modelling Framework (EMF), it should be possible to visually edit model instances from a standard web browser. This a task for which the GEF/Draw2d/SWT stack is not well-suited, and thus a browser-based diagram editing environment is needed. Additionally, it should be possible to use the same workflow provided by the Graphical Modelling Framework (GMF) to generate domain-specific, browser-based diagram editing environments.
