Changes to the Data Source Explorer for 1.6 M6 [message #41520] Wed, 13 February 2008 00:01 Go to next message

Hi all...

We've been doing some additional tweaking to the Data Source Explorer (DSE)
for the 1.6 M6 milestone. This may require adopter changes and we wanted you
to be aware of what we're doing before we deliver it to the code stream for
M6.

You can see the latest patch in BZ 189800
(https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=189800).

As a summary of what's changed...

1) We have moved DSE view menu and toolbar contributions out of the
org.eclipse.ui.viewContributions extension to the org.eclipse.ui.menus
extension. This is to provide greater flexibility to adopters in how they
can add, remove, and override toolbar and view menu actions. The new
o.e.ui.menus extension uses the command and command handler frameworks to
allow overriding of a variety of places for different purposes.

2) The upshot of this is that if anyone has extended via the older
o.e.ui.viewContributions method, they will need to adjust to use the new
o.e.ui.menus extension. The two extensions do not seem to be compatible,
which may cause some folks to do some additional work in M6.

3) I have updated the Connection Profile sample (File sample) plug-in to
show how to override a command handler.

So if you have concerns or questions about this change, please let me know.

Thanks

Just FYI, these changes have been committed and should appear in the nightly
DTP 1.6 builds for M6.

Thanks.
