Message The GEF from Eclipse and Tigris are different product. While not sure, I
believe the GEF library from Eclipse uses SWT while Tigris one uses
Swing. While I haven't really fooled around with the Eclipse GEF a quick
look at the API gave the impression that its OOness is better ;) Well, I
was think I can guess correctly things connect in it compared to GEF
which took a little longer.

I must confess I don't think Tigris GEF has good documentation or
tutorial. Learnt to use most of it from the source. Which is not really
so great because things change between each release. Small things that
developers are not aware of because they don't know how the users are
really using it; there isn't a recommended way. The demo isn't
comprehensive.
