Graph Example (Standalone, Eclipse UI)

The Graph Example is provided as a standalone JavaFX application as well as an Eclipse UI integration.

Graph Example (Standalone)

  • bundle: org.eclipse.gef4.zest.examples.graph

GEF4 Zest in Eclipse

The Eclipse UI-integrated version can simply be installed from our update-sites. It can then easily be accessed in your runtime eclipse application via the Window->Show View->Other... menu, where it is located in the Other category. Note that, if you are running on Linux with GTK3, you have to force SWT to use the GTK2 API by setting the environment variable SWT_GTK3 to 0, because of a JavaFX/SWT integration bug (Bugzilla #469126).

JFace-API Examples (undeployed)

  • bundle: org.eclipse.gef4.zest.examples.ui

The JFace-API Examples demonstrate how to use the JFace-API provided by GEF4 Zest.FX.UI. They are not deployed on our update-sites and have to checked out in source (org.eclipse.gef4.zest.examples.ui) from our GEF4 Git repository. In order to have the example plug-in compile properly, all other required GEF4 bundles will either have to be installed (in a matching version) into your running eclipse platform (if this is used as target), added to a target definition (the target definitions contained in may be augmented for this purpose), or checked out in source as well. You will also have to install e(fx)clipse in your running eclipse instance and target platform (see GEF Project Contributor Guide for details on how to obtain the sources and setup your workspace). Having prepared everything as outlined before, the standalone example might easily be started by launching one of the following example classes from org.eclipse.gef4.zest.examples.ui via the context menu ('Run As' -> 'Java Application'):
