GMF is a great framework for designing diagrams but unfortunately only targets rich client applications. We, at Talend, needed a Web application able to design a business process the same way our RCP application was providing it. We decided to use the open source Oryx Editor (MIT license) to provide the framework for our business process design application.

This presentation will show the way we converted our GMF diagram application to be used in the Oryx editor that provides a GMF like framework for web applications. We will also see how the mapping of the diagram, palette and component definitions could be generated from the GMF model and what issues we had to resolve to convert our GMF and EMF model into a json model to be exchanged with the Oryx editor.

Sebastien Gandon works as an Eclipse Architect for Talend, a leading open source company specialized in Data Management. He is responsible for the architecture of Talend applications based on Eclipse RCP technologies.
