How metadata files generated [message #475992] Wed, 16 July 2008 17:49 Go to next message

In order to integrate custom components into Eclipse, a set of metadata
files are required such as metadata for tag creation, content
assistance, attributes list and quick editors. I wonder how the
attributes metadata for Sun RI components and Trinidad are generated?
Manually? Is there such a kind of tool available? Generate metadata for
attribute sheet is tidious.

Thx

As you have discovered, there is no editor to simplify the creation, or
modification, of a tag library metadata file. However, Yury Kats of IBM
has made a utility available that will generate a starting point metadata
file of all of the tag and attribute entities. You will find it attached
to: https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=181674.

Keep in mind, it's over a year old now and hasn't been updated since.

Yes. It was for WTP 2.0 not WTP 3.0.
It helps but not a lot. I wonder if it is possible to do some more work
based on EMF code in current jst.jsf.core

Has metadata changed that much between 2.0 and 3.0? I don't think it has.

The tool would give you a skeleton XML that at the very least contains
all tags and all attributes. You can certainly get the same from the EMF model.
I was also creating actual metadata for many common attributes (id, value, rendered,
action, width etc etc). You won't get from the EMF model.
