EMF Client Platform Bundle Overview

EMF Forms

EMF Forms Core
ecp.common

This plugin includes classes used in EMF Forms and ECP plugins like UniqueSetting. UniqueSetting implements the equals method as well as the hashcode method and thus can be used in Collections other than Setting.

ecp.edit

This plugin defines interfaces and abstract classes for Controls as well as a factory for creating controls. The factory defines an extension point that allows the user to contribute his own controls.

ecp.edit.swt

Uses the Controls Extension Point to contribute default controls for SWT such as TextControl or TableControl.

ecp.ui.view

This contains UI independent classes that are needed for rendering, e.g., ViewProviderHelper, which allows the user to find a View for an EObject.

ecp.ui.view.swt

This contains SWT classes. It provides abstract implementations for renderers and an entry point for rendering a View Model (ECPSWTViewRenderer).

ecp.view.context

The ViewModelContext contains the model information for an open editor. Its lifecycle is bound to the lifecycle of an ECP editor, thus each instance of an editor has exactly one ViewModelContext. It provides access to the View Model and to the domain model. It also allows the user to register and retrieve registered ViewServices.

ecp.view.core.swt

This defines renderers for core model elements (VView, VControl).

ecp.view.model

This provides core model elements (View and Control) as well as abstract classes.

ecp.view.model.edit

This is the generated edit plugin for core models.

ecp.view.model.provider.generator

This is a ViewModel provider that generates a View Model based on the provided EObject.

ecp.view.model.provider.xmi

This is a ViewModel provider that provides an extension point allowing the user to register serialized View Models.

EMF Forms Extension Models
ecp.view.categorization.model

This defines a model for Categorizations, allowing the user to categorize the domain model.

ecp.view.categorization.model.edit

This is the generated edit plugin for Categorizations.

ecp.view.categorization.swt

This provides the SWT Renderer for the Categorization model.

ecp.view.custom.model

This model provides the HardcodedDomainModelReference, which allows the user to reference a specific control directly. In this way, custom controls (controls that reference an arbitrary number of features) can be added to the view model.

ecp.view.custom.model.edit

This is the generated edit plugin for custom models.

ecp.view.custom.ui

This provides the ECPAbstractCustomControl class, which provides UI independent functionalities for custom controls, e.g., setting the value of a DomainModelRefrence or binding a DomainModelRefrence to an ObservableValue.

ecp.view.custom.ui.swt

This defines an abstract SWT implementation of custom controls by providing helper methods, e.g., by creating the validation icon.

ecp.view.group.model

This is a group that behaves like a vertical layout but also shows a border with the group name as the title.

ecp.view.group.model.edit

This is the generated edit plugin for group models.

ecp.view.group.ui.swt

This is the SWT renderer for group models that renders groups.

ecp.view.horizontal.model

This defines a model for horizontal layouts wherein elements are ordered next to each other.

ecp.view.horizontal.model.edit

This is the generated edit plugin for a horizontal layout.

ecp.view.horizontal.ui.swt

This is the SWT Renderer for a horizontal layout.

ecp.view.label.model

This allows the user to define a label with a name (the displayed text) and a style.

ecp.view.label.model.edit

This is the generated edit plugin for labels.

ecp.view.label.ui.swt

This is the SWT renderer for label models.

ecp.view.rule

This is the rule service, which evaluates visibility and enablement rules.

ecp.view.rule.model

This is the rule model, which allows users to define dynamic behavior like enabling/disabling of elements or showing/hiding of elements based on value changes in the domain model. A ShowRule, an EnableRule and Conditions are provided by this plugin.

ecp.view.rule.model.edit

This is the generated edit plugin for the rule model.

ecp.view.table.model

This provides classes like a table and columns for defining and configuring tables.

ecp.view.table.model.edit

This is the generated edit plugin for the table model.

ecp.view.table.ui.swt

This is the SWT renderer for table elements.

ecp.view.table.columnservice

This is a context service that adds all columns to tables that do not have any columns defined.

ecp.view.template.model

This is a model for configuring icons and colors of validation errors.

ecp.view.template.model.edit

This is the generated edit plugin for the template model.

ecp.view.template.service

This is the template service that provides the Current Template model.

ecp.view.treemasterdetail.model

This is a tree master detail, which provides an element that displays the domain model on the left-hand side as a tree and allows users to edit it on the right-hand side.

ecp.view.treemasterdetail.model.edit

This is the generated edit plugin for the TreeMasterDetail model.

ecp.view.treemasterdetail.ui.swt

This is the SWT renderer for the tree master detail element.

ecp.view.unset

This is the unset service, which monitors the View Model instance and sets all values of the domain model to default if they are not displayed anywhere in the View Model.

ecp.view.validation

This is the validation service, which monitors the domain model and calculates validation errors.

ecp.view.vertical.model

This defines a vertical layout model wherein children are positioned under each other.

ecp.view.vertical.model.edit

This is the generated edit plugin for a vertical layout.

ecp.view.vertical.ui.swt

This is the SWT renderer for a vertical layout.

EMF Forms Core
