GEFGWT: GEF in JavaScript, in the browser, on the iPad

Session Type: 
Standard Talk [25 minutes]
Speakers

GEF is one of the oldest Eclipse projects. When migrating a good old RCP application to the Web or Mobile, the graphical editors are usually very hard to port or rewrite.

We ported GEF to JavaScript using GWT. That way you can reuse most of the Java code and compile your GEF editors to JavaScript. We also made a few extensions to support touch events on mobile devices.

In this talk I explain how the port was done, give you a demo of GEFGWT and explain how you can use it.
