I have just published a very simple plugin that allows the visualization
of mylyn tasks in a gantt view (http://xpmp.de/jaretcalendar.html). It
currently only displays local tasks straight forward (without any
projection of working time). It is possible to drag the tasks for
scheduling or to set the estimated time by sizing. The gantt view
supports some milestone markers to visualize deadlines.
The plugin is not really focussed on mylyn. More general it displays a
regular calendar that will also be shown in the gantt view. It currently
features a simple local calendar and a google calendar integration.
I am currently using mylyn for organizing my tasks locally (private use)
and can not use mylyn in my day-to-day work with the team (which makes
me sad ...).
That said I have two questions which I would like to hear your opinions
and comments on:
a) Does this make any sense for heavy mylyn users? I guess when
repository tasks are supported (which I will check with a test
repository I have to setup ... maybe I'll get that straight in early
2008) one person can do the (micro) scheduling for others.
b) Isn't scheduling on small tasks a bit "too much"?
There are some other, technical issues I came across:
- the events fired on the ITaskListChangeListener are strange (or I
simply don't understand the concept). For supporting multiple task views
it would be great if the tasks itself would be observables.
- updating a task and notifying the tasklist seems to be quite slow
(well, when dragging a task this makes a lot of updates ...)
I would appreciate your comments (and maybe suggestions).
