Those files are probably not documented; they're not intended for user
modification as they are internal "state" of the WST tools.

The problem with amazing tools like Eclipse is that sometimes they don't
work properly. If the plugin somehow gets the internal state confused,
unless I know the hidden information about the structure of these files,
my only recourse is to just start over. If the structure of these files
was documented in a reasonable place, I'd at least have a chance of being
able to fix it without having to start over. If I make a mistake and the
result doesn't work, I'm no worse off than I was in the first place.

Eric, I would hope that there is some documentation somewhere about
those files and what they are used for. Regardless if they are intended
for user modification or not, documenting the usage of those files is
important.

This is open source - if the WST development team didn't have reason,
motivation, time,...whatever... to document them, someone will have to
either a) open a bug report asking for it, b) do the work and submit it,
or c) both.

I believe its schema is can be found at
/org.eclipse.wst.common.modulecore/javadoc-images/componentC ore.xsd
in the :pserver:dev.eclipse.org:/cvsroot/webtools CVS repository.

Hi guys,

Thanks for copying JSF on this issue. Vis-a-vis JSF tools, other than the
source attachment problem, are there any other issues here?

I see that we have some lively discussion on source attachment here:
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=202177.


Regards,

Cameron
