Mylyn - "open resource" to context [message #588813] Thu, 03 April 2008 12:22

I have been using Mylyn for a couple of weeks and I am pretty pleased,
overall. I have a couple of questions - I looked through the FAQ and
couldn't see the answers. So apologies if I missed them.

1. I have an active task, and the "Focus on Active Task" button is enabled
so my package explorer is greatly slimmed down, which I am grateful for
because there are 60-odd projects in my workspace ! I can Shift-Ctrl-T to
add a type to the context, and that class opens. The project containing
that class, if it isn't already there, is added to the context, along with
the .java file. I can Shift-Ctrl-R to open an XML file. The file opens in
the editor but is not shown in my package explorer. It appears that any
resource I open is not added to the package explorer.

If I turn off the "focus on active task", pretty much any file I file I
right click on in the package has "remove from Context" even though the
file isn't in the context.

2. Why is the "link with editor button" greyed out ? If I select a file by
clicking on its edit tab, the default behaviour is to select the file in
the the package explorer (i.e same as link with editor) but sometimes I
don't want that to happen.

I am using MyEclipse (version 6 - Europa) with the latest version of Mylyn.

I don't think it is relevant but I should say that I am using a local task
repository. We use Mantis here as a defect tracking system but
unfortunately, the connector that is available doesn't support our version
of Mantis.
