Message Hi,

    I need to build a swing editor for my application (industrial supervision)
that will operate in runtime. The main difference from most swing editors
will be that it won't generate java code, but serialized panels.

    I think GEF can help me, because it already implements nice resize,
placemente, etc.. code.

    I played with gef source for a while, and found this main problem :

    -The diagram accepts only objects that come from your class hierarchy.
However, I want to be able to deploy any javabean, withou having to change
it, or create additional classes. (I don't need the connection feature)

    However, I noticed that the Graph can receive an editor, etc.., so perhaps
I could extend GEF to handle swing editing (I already have a nice set of
property editors, opensourced by nanotitan).

    If I implemented the editior in GEF I would probably opensource it.

    Does this make sense, or should I just take a look at your
selection/resizing/etc.. code and implement it myself ?

thanks
Ricardo
