Hi Folks,

I've been working on some examples using the ECF remoteservices API
(soon to have r-OSGI as provider/impl), and would like to present a user
interface that given an interface class, allows the user to:

1) See the method names and type signatures of method parameters and
return values (via reflective access to the interface class).
2) Enter/set the values of parameters (to some Serializable type), and
constrain to appropriate type
3) Choose a method of remote invocation (e.g. proxy, synchronous,
asynchronous with listener, future/asynchresult, etc)
4) Set/choose a timeout

What I would like to do is to present this interface when a service has
been discovered (via the ECF discovery), and allow the user/developer to
decide which methods to invoke (1), set any/all parameters for those
methods (2), and then invoke the remote method (3-4). I think this
could be a nice aid for development/testing/debugging of remote OSGi
services.

I thought perhaps there might be something like this for either jdt
refactor/debug, pde, or wtp (web services). If people know of such a
UI, or would like to contribute such a thing please say so.

Scott
