A great way to learn is to look at concrete examples that you can run and experiment with. You can clone the eclipse.platform.ui git repository which contains the "org.eclipse.jface.examples.databinding" project with the JFace Databinding examples. For cloning a git repository you can use the [http://eclipse.org/egit/ EGit] tooling of Eclipse.
You can copy any of the snippets (see below) into a scratch project within Eclipse, or using CVS, check out the complete examples project. Just open the CVS Perspective (Window > Open Perspective > CVS) and add a new Repository Location (File > New > Other > CVS > CVS Repository Location).

Snippets show how common use cases can be implemented using the JFace Data Binding framework. They are typically a single self-contained Java class with a main method. See the bottom of this page for instructions on how to get and run the snippets.

Running the Snippets

A great way to learn is to look at concrete examples that you can run and experiment with. You can clone the eclipse.platform.ui git repository which contains the "org.eclipse.jface.examples.databinding" project with the JFace Databinding examples. For cloning a git repository you can use the EGit tooling of Eclipse. Use the following URL to clone the repository.

After you cloned the project the clone wizard will allow you to import the included projects. For the databinding examples you only have to import the "org.eclipse.jface.examples.databinding" project. For an introduction into EGit please see EGit Most of the examples provide a main method, you can run it as a Java Application to see what happens.

You can also copy any of the snippets (see below) into a scratch project within Eclipse. If you are copying single snippets into a scratch project, make sure that it is set up with the correct dependencies. You will need org.eclipse.core.databinding, org.eclipse.core.databinding.beans, and org.eclipse.jface.databinding.
