Hello,

I'd like to contribute to the Nebula (Supplemental Widgets for SWT)
project. What do I need to do to join the project and where is the
discussion of new/existing widget design being held?

Hello Roland,
if you look at http://www.swtplus.com/download/swtplus.zip you find
the src of swtplus.
Of course we must make thanks to the project administrator of
http://www.swtplus.com

Great Work!!!

Stefano

Hi,

Thanks for the link. However ... the zip does not quite cut it. I's nice
to have the code but nicer yet would be if we could have a common
repository of the swptlus/nebula somewhere lest we end up with multitude
of versions each slightly different from the other...

And a board of some sort to discuss the directions of the overall api
and stuff to do next.
I'd love to give my input to the project - either in ideas or
implementation/patches (preferably both)... I just want to know where to
start...

Hi Roland,

Thanks for your interest in helping Nebula. The Nebula project isn't an
offical Eclipse project yet. Its still at the proposal phase. I am
eager as you to get started with the project, but it still has to go
through a creation review and other aspects of the approval process.
Until then we won't have a repository.

-Chris

I also would like to express high interest in Nebulae, and
I would like to participate in this discussion stimulated
by the thread "KTable + SWT" in the eclipse.platform.swt group.

One of our points of interest are a powerful Table widget,
similar to e.g. KTable (http://sourceforge.net/projects/ktable/).

I was just evaluating KTable for our needs, but did also
recognize its current (beta) state and the fact that the
project seems to have slow progress in the recent time. Although
impressing from the first view, this widget e.g. obviously shows
end-of-table calculation errors (just have a look at the example
tables and try to go to the last entry of e.g. the Text Table.
If you resize the table we will recognize, that you will have
difficulties to navigate to the last line with the scroll bar).

Please understand me right: I think that KTable is a great
tool for SWT-near programmers, but I strongly assume that its
fame would even increase if it would become part of a greater project
like Nebulae.

Greetings from Bremen,

Daniel Krügler

Hi Daniel,

I would be happy to receive any assistance from the community once
Nebula gets approved/established. But that must also be tempered by the
charter and guidelines for Nebula. Nebula will be a test-bed for SWT
widgets and therefore Nebula widgets will have to abide by the SWT
requirements as well as SWT API paradigms. Some of the more nefarious
requirements include J2ME CLDC support and accessibility support. Any
code contributed to Nebula must support these requirements (or come with
a developer willing to spend the time to support them).

On a related note, I have been working on a table widget that will be
part of Nebula (assuming Nebula is approved and established).

Hi Chris,

I don't understand the Eclipse proposals process. The page at
http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/ refers to Nebula as a stale proposal,
which I find rather worrying. What has to happen now, so that the project
can begin? Does a more detailled status page exist?

Bye,
Michael

Thats the only page (AFAIK). I believe the proposal is marked as stale
simply because its been a long time between the proposal and the
creation review. I'm going through necessary internal reviews before I
can continue with a creation review. I don't believe the fact that its
marked as stale is anything to worry about.

Nice to hear that a new table widget are in development now.
Nice if table widget able to place columns in a free flow way in any

in each row band and with auto height. I would like to participate as well
if you dont mind... but... i'm not as good as you all BUT.. i know Sybase
DataWindow very well! ;-) (Now Sybase DataWindow very famous in .NET)

Thanks and hope to hear from you soon
