I have been working on a widget that we plan to use in the
BPEL designer soon. It is a TreeMapper that makes easier
the definition of mapping between 2 structured objects. It
renders objects as trees, and mappings as lines. It relies
on classical TreeViewers for Trees, and the mapping stuff
is made with Draw2d. However, people don't have to deal
with the draw2d stuff, since there is an interface to
implement that "resolve" mappings to semantic elements, a
bit like a ContentProvider manipulates semantic items to
hide SWT items. You can find attached 2 screenshots.
The code is working well and available under EPL here .
As I've also worked for other projects than BPEL editor
(JWT, GMF, Bonita Open Solution, PetalsStudio...), I think
there are a lot of use cases for this widget. That's why
I'd like to share it with the Eclipse community.
Of course, it is still in an "Incubation" phase, but
having it part of Nebula will probably increase interest
in it, so that it could leave the Incubation phase as soon
as several Eclipse project use it successfully.
Please tell me if you find this interesting for the Nebula
project to host this widget and its future development.
