Greetings,

In the WTP Architecture Group, we are trying to catalog all outstanding
packaging issues in WTP. This includes all known issues and bugs that
have been documented against components that relate to the way components
are bundled.

More specifically, we are looking for known issues related to:

1) Components being bundled in such a way that users/adopters are forced
to use a dependency that they do not want or think they need. For
example, to use plugin X you must use plugin Y, but the dependencies in
plugin Y are rarely or never needed to actually use needed functionality
in plugin X.

2) Functionality requiring the use of dependencies that users/adopters
don't want. For example, there are a number of features in JSF tools that
require a dynamic web project facet, however we have had several requests
from people to use these features in only a Java natured/faceted project.


Please send pointers to these use cases (preferably as Bugzilla entries)
to me (cameron dot bateman at oracle.com) and I will catalog and publish
them on the WTP architecture wiki.

The catalog will be used by the architecture group to drive the creation
of proposals for how WTP components may be rebundled and/or refactored to
maximize their use by users/adopters who may not wish to adopt the entire
WTP component set.
