GEF is a very powerful framework for visually creating and
editing models. With a small initial investment, even the
relative Eclipse novice can be quickly up and running, building
applications with graphical editing capabilities. To illustrate,
this article uses a relational database schema diagram editor
with a deliberately simplified underlying model, but with enough
bells and whistles to show some of the interesting features of
GEF at work.
