Tools/Cobol project: "Is this anything?" [message #468851] Thu, 07 August 2003 14:31 Go to next message

On the David Letterman show, they have a recurring spot where they
reveal something on stage and they debate as to whether it "is anything".

I would like to know if the Tools/Cobol project "is anything?"

o The project source download is about a year old.
o The project source is not in CVS as far as I can tell.
o I patched the source so that it would build under 2.1.0, but it
doesn't seem to even include all of the features that are shown in the
screen shots, like the outline view for example.
o The source seems to reference a method in StyledText (setTabStopMode)
that is nowhere to be found in Eclipse. Perhaps the Fujitsu team
patched their own version of StyledText?
o The project proposal asks for help, but there is apparently no way to
actually participate.

So, is this anything? I would like to know if this "is anything" before
I waste any time helping to fix it up.

I suspect that since IBM has competing features in Websphere Enterprise,
that this project is not going to get any of their help.

But why even host it as a sub-project under Eclipse tools? Why solicit
participation in a project that is dead?

The Tools/Cobol Project had stopped for a long time.
But we intend to restart the project.

We are currently refactoring the COBOL IDE sources
so that they can work on the original (non-customized)
Eclipse and they are suitable for Eclipse CVS repository.

We will publish the sources in September, which work
on Eclipse 2.0.2 and on Windows. After that, we will
revise the code to work on Eclipse 2.1.x and on other
platforms.

Thanks and regards,

Tomoki Shiratori

Thanks for the update. If the project has been stopped, you may want to
update the project page on the Eclipse site.
