For those who use the translator in multi-project mode
(http://j2cstranslator.wiki.sourceforge.net/HowToUse), you certainly note
that there is no UI integration of that feature (it's only an xml file to
edit, and you can use it only in the command line version).
So, why not to have a specific project nature for that ?
My idea is : a project nature with a wizard where you add references on
existing Java projects to translate, set global options (exactly what the
xml file already contains) and a specific perspective.
Once your project is set up you can decide to
* customize the translation
- specify what transformation to perform (customize the translation
... could be used to translate Java to other java-like language)
- modify output directory
- modify some options
* perform action on source code
- update it (if under svn/cvs)
- translate it (i.e. translate all referenced Java projects)
- check with svn/cvs if a new translation is required
* perform action on generated code
- launch unit test ?
Something similar to the Feature project in Eclipse.
Is this feature will be useful ? Am I completely crazy :-) ?
Any comment, other idea ?
I'm looking for info/volunteer to help on this (not necessary to start it
right now but to have advise, ...).
