Logic Example


This plug-in is named org.eclipse.gmf.examples.runtime.diagram.logic.  It allows creation of a simple circuit board editor persisted in a resource file with extension *.logic2.  The editor demonstrates how a semantic model can be visualized using the diagram core components.  In this case the semantic model is an EMF model that defines (hypothetically) how a circuit board could be represented in a meta-model.  The notation meta-model, which is part of the diagram core is then mapped to this semantic meta-model and displayed in the editor so that the user can subsequently manipulate the semantic model.




This plug-in contributes a wizard to the "New Example" menu.

Selecting the "Logic Diagram" entry will create a new editor for editing logic models.

Please refer to the following tutorials for reviewing the code samples within this example:

Modifying acontainer to support automatic layout


Refer to this example if you need:

  1. How to create an editor for a existing EMF semantic model.
  2. How to inherit notation based functionality that is provided for by the diagram layer.
  3. How to use some of the advanced features of the diagram layer such as shape containment, canonical synchronization and border shapes.
