Diagram editors are easy with Sapphire

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Why are diagram editors so difficult to write? Senior developers, who can whip out an SWT dialog in their sleep, start looking for a place to hide when faced with the task of writing a diagram editor. In this talk, we will explore how Sapphire's declarative model-driven approach makes developing highly functional diagram editors more approachable.

You will see a live demonstration of Sapphire's capabilities. We will start with a model, define the diagram, throw in some forms for details, and come away with a functional editor. All in the span of 35 minutes.
