Impending removal of New Table Wizard from DTP due to lack of development support [message #52125] Thu, 08 January 2009 18:03 Go to next message

Hi all...

I have some sad news to report. (Some may also see this on the dtp-dev
mailing list, but I wanted to make sure everyone saw it at least once. Sorry
for the duplication.)

Due to a chronic lack of active resources working on it, the New Table
Wizard (org.eclipse.datatools.sqltools.tableeditor) is in danger of being
retired from service and removed from future builds of DTP for Galileo.

Does anyone in the DTP community have the time and effort to spend on this
component? It could definitely use some TLC as it has gone virtually
untouched for the better part of 18-24 months.

If we don't get help with it soon, the component will be removed from
distributed builds starting with DTP's M5 milestone for Galileo at the
beginning of February.

Thanks for any and all help!

Please pardon a small correction. It's the o.e.d.sqltools.tablewizard, not
the tableeditor. My mistake.

Thanks
