OpenAjax Metadata Support in JSDT [message #518376] Wed, 03 March 2010 22:48 Go to next message

Hello,

Based on the presentation found on this link ( http://www.slideshare.net/ajaxexperience2009/adam-peller-int eroperable-ajax-tools-and-mashups), as well as digging through the JSDT code (inside the org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.internal.oaametadata package), I am convinced that OpenAjax Metadata is kind of supported in JSDT.

I am trying to figure out if I can use it to enable content assist of my own library. (Yes, I know that providing a JavaScript file is supposed to work. I could get it working partially, but as long as there is any namespace involved, things don't seem to work.)

I'd like to know if I can provide OAA metadata to make content assist work for my library. And I cannot find any information since documentation is pretty broken.

Any information on that would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Rosa

That's an interesting finding that should be explored further.
Namespaces (packages?) are basically ignored in JSDT, as they don't
really exist in JS. There are bound to be a few quirks from JSDT's
heritage, however, in working with them, but these are areas we're
keen on fixing. If you can provide more detailed information in a
bug report, I'd like to pursue this further.

You're not going to like this, but the answer for now is no. The
support you found was written to a two-year old draft version of the
spec, and hasn't received a lot of attention since then.

Hi Nitin,

Thanks a lot for your reply.

I've logged a bug for the namespace issue.

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=305694

We really need to namespace support. Please let us know if you need other info.

Thanks,
Rosa
