Overview

UFaceKit works on different levels using a layered setup first and fore most UFaceKit needs to have an Eclipse-Databinding for Widget and Model-Technologies it wants to use. Some of them are provided by other projects (SWT-Observable, EMF-Observables) and UFaceKit reuses them. For other technologies it provides the implementation as part of the UFaceKit project.
