Download Zip with Example
The purpose of the XViewer is to give the application developer a more advanced and dynamic TreeViewer that has the filtering and sorting the capabilities of a spreadsheet while providing the users the ability to customize their table to suit their current needs and save/restore these customizations for future use by individual or group.
The current XViewer already commited as part of the Eclipse OSEE Project. More information is available at OSEE XViewer. Near term plans to submit this to the Nebula project
This talk will introduce this widget and display not only the current capabilities, but those planned for the future.

- Easily reorder columns through drag/drop or table customization
- Provides mechanism to save and load table customizations so users can easily switch between customizations
- Provides mechanism to mark table customizations as individual or global to provide sharing of customizations by users and teams (needs to be backed with shared file system or database)
- Provides mechanism to mark table customization as default customization to display whenever this table is shown
