Hi all!

I have a very simple question... or not Laughing .

Can anybody tells me if the context is Generic in mylyn ?

Explanation:

I currently work on an application which manages a huge amount of data in Trees, Tables, and so on.

So I was wondering if I could use Mylyn to help users in my application ? Thus they will only see relevant datas Smile

Thanks before !

Jonathan

Anything can be a context element in Mylyn, but you have to write a connector to connect elements in your data to the Mylyn model.

ok thanks for the reply Smile and by the way HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL ! Very Happy

I 've just read some tutorials which show how to create a new Mylyn connector.

My last question is : It seems that the context is based on the "Package explorer" view, isn't it ? In fact in my application I have a custom view (not the Package explorer view) and I'd like to know If I could use it to fill the context ?

Thanks again

I would recommend taking a look at
http://wiki.eclipse.org/Mylyn/Modeling_Bridge and the Model Focusing Tools
project: http://www.eclipse.org/projects/project.php?id=mylyn.context.mft .

The goal of the project is to provide frameworks and tools for focusing
views that are backed by EMF based models. Even if you are using a different
representation for your models the provided implementation should provide a
good starting point.

You can fairly easily add focusing to any view that embedds a JFace
StructuredViewer but you can also implement your custom filtering for any
type of view or control. The MFT project provides filtering for diagrams for
instance.

If you have specific development related questions I would recommend asking
on the mylyn-intergrators mailing list.
