redView 1.0.0 (Helios SR1) available … see here HowTo install.
Using redView its very comfortable to design UI, because redView provides a SWT WYSIWYG editor: the UI Designer can use Drag’n’Drop, the Outline View or the Properties View. Copy / Paste with Undo functionality makes it easy to correct a mistake.
redView UI is based on EMF Models – these models can be generated using red-open Software Manufactory.
At Runtime the Business Views are rendered dynamically and Design changes can be pushed live into running (Riena) – RCP Applications using EMFStore.
redView is also a great tool for Prototyping: Developer, Designer and Business User can work distributed on the same models.
Another use-case of redView is testing webservices in a generated (Riena) – RCP Application.
redView is simple to use: combine it with your own UI –> a redView Factory gives you a component rendered dynamically at runtime.
redView uses Eclipse RT Technology: OSGI Framework and Declarative Services (DS) from Equinox, Ridgets from Eclipse Riena, …
redView and red-open support Eclipse RT: Eclipse Riena RCP Applications with UI and Navigation, Riena Remote Services, … all can be generated.
open-erp-ware as reference-implementation of redView enhances functionality with some business components: localizing (labels, enums, …), lookup, search, navigation, CRUD UI and more.
