Re: [bpel-dev] Is there any way to extract the exporting bpel process as image API from BPELDesigner?

Hi,

The dependency on BPELMultipageEditorPart is only required as a way to get to the contained GEF GraphicalViewer. At the very least your code needs to render the root Figure somehow and this includes loading/parsing the BPEL process file. I think it's going to be very difficult to extract only those bits you need to get the job done without having to create a BPEL editor instance, but have a look at the org.eclipse.bpel.compare.ui plugin - this does a visual compare of two BPEL files.

This sounds like it should be an API enhancement or possibly a new utility plugin. Can you please create an API feature enhancement request here:

Thanks!
Bob
