riena emf dynamic views

Welcome to redView

redView: EclipseRT (Runtime) meets Eclipse Modeling.

redView: Riena EMF Dynamic Views (not only) for OSGI Business Applications.

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.

red-open software manufactory generates redView – SWT View models and more using Eclipse Modeling: EMFT (MWE) and M2T (Xpand/Xtend) aka openArchitectureWare.
