Logo Example (Standalone, Eclipse UI, Web)

The GEF4 MVC Logo example demonstrates the interplay of all MVC components (i.e. MVC, MVC.FX, MVC.UI, and MVC.FX.UI), and is also based on other GEF4 components. It comes in three variants: a standalone JavaFX application, a deployed Eclipse UI-integration, as well as a JNLP-based web integration.

Logo Example (Standalone)

  • bundle: org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.examples.logo

The standalone JavaFX application is only indirectly-bundled on our update-site and can better be checked out in source (org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.examples.logo) from our GEF4 Git repository. In order to have the example plug-in compile properly, all other required GEF4 bundles will either have to be installed (in a matching version) into your running eclipse platform, added to a target definition (the already provided in the active target platform (the provided target definitions may be augmented for this purpose), or checked out in source as well. You will also have to install e(fx)clipse in your running eclipse instance and target platform (see GEF Project Contributor Guide for details on how to obtain the sources and setup your workspace). Having prepared everything as outlined before, the standalone example might easily be started by launching org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.examples.logo.MvcLogoExample via the context menu ('Run As' -> 'Java Application').

Logo Example (UI-integration)

  • feature: org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.examples
  • bundle: org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.examples
  • bundle: org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.examples.logo
  • bundle: org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.examples.logo.ui

The Eclipse UI integration is realized by means of an Eclipse view (org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.examples.logo.ui), which integrates with the Eclipse Workbench operation history as well as the Eclipse UI properties view)

The Eclipse UI-integrated version can simply be installed from our update-sites. It can then easily be accessed in your runtime eclipse application via the Window->Show View->Other... menu, where it is located in the Other category.

Logo Example (Web-integration)

  • bundle: org.eclipse.gef4.mvc.examples.logo.web

The web-integrated version of the standalone application is realized via Java WebStart.

The web-integrated version of the standalone example is provided in a bundled form on and can be accessed at You will need to have the Java plug-in installed into your browser, and you may have to adjust your Java plug-in security settings to allow java content for the respective url.
