Real Steel - Using GEF in an Industrial Application

In this talk we will demonstrate how ThyssenKrupp Steel’s Manufacturing Execution System, which targets the production planning and control of steel plants, incorporates GEF-based views in its Eclipse-based development environment. We will start with a short introduction to the application domain, then demonstrate the relevant parts of the development environment’s user interface, focussing on the diagrammatic views that integrate automatic layout, image export, as well as JSON-based persistence. We will then give some insight about the underlying architecture, sketching how GEF Zest and Graphviz have been combined to realize the demonstrated.

The talk is intended at adopters and might be especially of interest for those that aim at realizing diagram editors or views with GEF 5.0.0.
