XXL / XlBuild: Guided Tour 2
The XXL Visual Builder is based on a 3-view paradigm:
The Graph View is fully editable and is handled in a direct manipulation style.
The Text View can be modified interactively by editing the source code. These modifications are locally performed "on the spot" (the source code is not entirely re-interpreted but just the subpart that has been changed).
There are no "building" and "testing" phases: the GUIs displayed in the Widget View are always active and the user can interact with them in the usual way. When editing C or C++ programs, the three views are modified dynamically while the program is running. Re-compilation is just needed at the end of the edition process.
