redView uses EMF models to define SWT Views. These Views can be stored as local XMI files or on a central server using an EMF Repository.
We have an experimental version of CDO to store the View models, but because of missing model-evolution we now have integrated EMFStore as repository server. (It’s the nature of our project that our meta-models will be extended and a repository must support model-evolution and guarantee that all existing models can still be used. redView’s View models are small but deep models and must be loaded at once – so we don’t profit of CDO’s great lazy loading mechanism)
The workshop use both kind of examples:
- XMI – file- based
- EMFStore – Server based
To prepare the installation we have provided a ready-to-run
redView EMFStore Server
You can download the server from our sites at SourceForge – there are versions for:
- OSX – redView EMFStore Server (Link: xxxxx)
- Windows – redView EMFStore Server (Link: xxxxx)
- Linux – redView EMFStore Server (Link: xxx)
If you ask “what’s an EMFStore server ?” – of course its Eclipse – its an Eclipse product where redView’s EMF Meta Models are included.
