The UI is rendered based on a view model at runtime and provides an out-of-the-box experience while being highly customizable. If you are not familiar with EMF Forms yet, [...]

This model is then [...]

As a proof-of-concept we have implemented a mongoDB back-end based on Mongo-EMF. To try EMFStore and [...]

EMF Forms: A Question of Effort


A comparison between view modeling and manual UI programming In my previous blog, I introduced EMF Forms, a subcomponent of EMF Client Platform (ECP), which supports the development of form-based user interfaces based on a view model.  The approach allows the effective development of forms without manual and tedious layout coding or manually binding controls [...]
