I'm trying to create a plugin that integrates the Woodstock component
library into eclipse.
I added the library JAR files to the classpath, and the components
appeared on the palette, but they all appeared as tags instead of palette
items, for instance the button was just "< > button", and when dropping
it's just a page wide square with dotted border.
I assume this is because it doesn't know anything about the component.
What route should I take to start integrating these libraries to ship as
an eclipse plug in. I'm sure many eclipse users who are JSF developers
would appreciate Woodstock support in the web page editor.
Some integrations that I noticed would need to be made is:
1. Display in palette
2. Display on page in page editor
3. All the different types of attributes, making some hidden with deduced
or static values, making some displayed under different, friendlier
names, some with special inputs (like images having browse inputs), etc.
4. Preferably grouping of attributes.
In Woodstock you get tabbed browsing components (tabset + it's tabs).
When clicking on a tab, the page linked to that tab is displayed, with
event listeners for them (obviously).
In the editor it also provides this switching. It basically comes down to
displaying the components of the active tab page only, and allowing you
to click on other tabs to make them active, and then show their pages. A
way to implement this would also be great.
These are the only ones I was able to think of now.
