GMF: Synchronized Container Use Cases

Revision as of 10:24, 12 April 2007 by (Talk | contribs) (Preface)


In the current state GMF supports two modes of diagram code generation - synchronized and non-synchronised. Toolsmith is able to switch between these two modes by changing GenDiagram.synchronized property. There were a number of discussions concerning diagram behavior in different situations according to the current mode. The idea of this document is to summarize existing requirements to simplify upcoming features development. Once this document will be finalized, corresponding changes should be introduced into the code generator and the runtime part if necessary.

This document will cover common use cases for different type of synchronized/non-synchronized diagrams from the end-user point of view and highlight corresponding places in code generator/runtime to be used to in corresponding conditions.
