Quickly customizing a process (e.g via copy-and-paste) [message #46754] Tue, 08 January 2008 02:44 Go to next message

I'm extending OpenUP with out company's specific and I am trying to keep
a similar method content hierarchy in my plug-in as OpenUP.

The problem/annoyance I am having is that I have to manually create this
structure and manually create the child elements and then select
variability.

Has any thought been given to allow copying items from one plug-in and
pasting them into another plug-in and maybe prompting for the type of
"Content Variablity" to use?

This would save me a lot of effort in customizing an existing process.

Have you looked at customizing original process via Drag and Drop -
extend, copy, deep copy functionality available in EPF ?

That's exactly what I want. Can you describe a scenario that works for you?

DnD does not appear to be enabled in EPF 1.2.0.2 (20071113-1739)

I have tried DnD on the following and I get no drag icon:

1)
openup/
Custom Categories/
openup_views/
openup_treebrowser/
introduction_to_openup

into

my/
Custom Categories/
my_views/
my_treebrowser/

2) openup/

I was actually talking about customizing a process in process editor. If
you open a process editor, you should be able to do DND method elements
from configuration view.

You are basically tryng to copy custom category. There is no drag and drop
there
Manual copy/paste will work there but you would have to fix dependencies
etc.

Shilpa is the only one to reply to this thread.

Does anyone think what I am requesting is unreasonable?

Is anyone else extending an existing process (like OpenUP) or are they
doing their own custom processes with no dependencies.

By the way, there seems to be a bug in copy/paste custom categories:
If I try to copy a structured custom category with sub-categories,
the structure is damaged after pasting them into a plug-in.
Is this a known issue?

Hello Barrie.
We currently do not have much support for dragging or copy-pasting
categories in the tree. However, this sounds like a good idea that we
should discuss. Dragging and prompting for a variability type would
certainly be an excellent improvement for plugin authors that want to extend
an existing plugin to "plug in" their categories. We are discussing in our
team at the moment what kind of refactoring and copy we want to support in
the next release. So the timing is great. Could you write some more
scenarios for what you have in mind?

Peter.
