The UI solution provided in 0.10.0 is limited to development standard Java Application over XWT/JFace with DataBinding. We need to provide some utilities to simply the integration of XWT over SWT/JFace with eclipse workbench.
It is a separated bundle that provides the following features
- Load the UI in XWT into View Part, Editor part
- Support of CSS
- Manage the communication and selection data between View Parts using the concept of Data Binding with Eclipse Context
Regardding to the first and second features, there is already a such solution when XWT was incubated in e4. We need to cleanup and update to the current Workbench.
As for the third feature, we have already started a POC. Here is a blog
written by our commiter Erdal Karaca.
The following requests will be handled in this release:
Bug 423766 - Provide support for EditingDomain and the EMF commands framework
Bug 422455 - Provide a way to inject @UI into additional objects
