EMF Forms and EMF Client Platform 1.10.0 released!

We are happy to announce that together with Neon, we have released  EMF Forms and EMF Client Platform 1.10.0!

We want to thank all committers and contributors for their work as well as the active ecosystem of users and adopters for the feedback and support!

Both projects have been amazing successes since their inception over 5 years ago. We are proud of having a continuously active team of 12 contributors and 33 contributors over all.

EMF Forms is a framework focused on the creation of form-based UIs. EMF Client Platform is designed to support the development of applications based on an EMF data model. If you are not yet familiar with EMF Forms, please refer to this tutorial for a introduction.

Both frameworks are part of Eclipse Modeling Tools Neon.1, but you can also find the new release on our download pages:

We will give a talk at EclipseCon Europe 2016 also introducing the new features, so make sure you register soon.

You might have noticed, that we have started on a new renderer for EMF Forms based on a native web stack (using AngularJS and JSON Schema) called JSON Forms. We see it as the optimal complement for EMF Forms and hope to make the idea of declarative UI development even more attractive. We are amazed by the progress of JSON Forms and we will soon start a blog series to introduce it more in detail in November. Even earlier you can get more details about JSON Forms in our talk at EclipseCon Europe on October 27th – More forms – less .

However, as you can see in the EMF Forms / ECP repository, we have not in any way reduced our effort for the existing frameworks and do not have any plans to do so.

As always, we will also blog about new features of the EMF Forms / ECP 1.10.0 release in the upcoming weeks! Please follow this blog or follow us on twitter to get notified about the new posts.

    Hello,

    EMFForms to JSONForms conversion and web ui looks cool.

    is there a way to update back the “data” from JSONForms-angularJS scope to EMF domain?
    I think in the Demo video it has been said to use a “Submit” button to post back the data to backend, i am just wondering is there a automatic way hat JSONForms could update back the EMF doamin model.
