Eclipse GEF
3.3

org.eclipse.gef
Class EditDomain

java.lang.Object
  extended by
org.eclipse.gef.EditDomain
Direct Known Subclasses:
DefaultEditDomain

public class EditDomain
extends java.lang.Object

The collective state of a GEF "application", loosely defined by a CommandStack, one or more EditPartViewers, and the active Tool. An EditDomain is usually tied with an Eclipse IEditorPart). However, the distinction between EditorPart and EditDomain was made to allow for much flexible use of the Graphical Editing Framework.
