Integrate GMF runtime with Mylyn task focused UI

Revision as of 21:46, 13 August 2010 by (Talk | contribs)

This project is part of Google Summer of Code 2010. Source code can be found at [1].


Mylyn is a task management framework. By using it, the workspace can have different "snapshots" for different tasks. When one task is selected, only the related objects (files, opened windows, etc.) are shown in the workspace. That is so called "task focused UI". On the other hand, the GMF runtime provides a common graphical notation model for every Eclipse Modeler. By combining the two techniques together, a mylyn bridge can be developed, showing the graphical elements in editor depending on the relevance of the current task. This project can also be an example to show how to integrate GMF techniques to a real project.
