The EEF project is part of EMFT (EMF Technology).

EEF provides a generative component and runtime infrastructure for developing advanced components to ease the EMF based model editing. It is composed of three parts :

  • A runtime containing a set of advanced widgets and a generic and extensible MVC architecture
  • Standard metamodels allowing the definition of models that will parameterize the actual editing components that are to be generated
  • An Acceleo module generating a standard architecture extending the framework's runtime.

The generated elements can be integrated in any SWT/JFace components to ease the EMF model based editing.
