CURRENTLY IN WORK
This page provides the required docuware for the GMF Tooling 1.4.0 Release Review, as part of the upcoming Helios Simultaneous Release.
The GMF Tooling is an industry proven application framework for creating graphical editors using EMF and GEF.
The GMF Tooling provides many features that one would have to code by hand if using EMF and GMF directly.
- A set of reusable components for graphical editors, such as printing, image export, actions and toolbars and much more.
- A standardized model to describe diagram elements, which separates between the semantic (domain) and notation (diagram) elements.
- A command infrastructure that bridges the different command frameworks used by EMF and GEF.
- An extensible framework that allows graphical editors to be open and extendible.
New in this release
One significant event with the Helios release was that the GMF project was restructured under the new Graphical Modeling Project (GMP). GMP includes GMF Tooling, as well as GMF Notation, GMF Runtime and Graphiti.
GMF Tooling is undergoing it's participation in the Eclipse Simultaneous release as it has for each and every release. This is the fifth yearly June release of GMF Tooling.
