The call began with Brent Metz leading a discussion of the problems the
Voice Tools Project aims to address;
duplication in effort in industry, lack of common extension points between
and lack of a powerful set of open source tools.
Brent then proceeded into a discussion of the Eclipse Development Process.
Callers were encouraged to
look at the Eclipse Development Process PDF on eclipse.org. Many concepts
such as the phases of development
and the means by which companies contribute code and resources to an Eclipse
project were discussed.
It was asked if it would be possible to take the existing IBM contribution
and create a project plan around
productizing that contribution. The response was that only releasing with
IBM's contribution could create the
perception of an 'IBM Toolkit' as opposed to a community effort. It was
stated by another caller that releasing
the existing contribution would be alright for an initial release.
It was noted that the existing contribution had not recieved a lot of public
feedback and that more feedback was
needed in order to know where to focus. Federic from HP stated a willingness
to contribute to the project.
An interest in the development of graphical tools was stated. It was also
stated that tools to handle call path
generation and other testing tools would be welcomed.
A summary of the state of the IBM contribution and its feature sets was
presented. It was asked whether or not the
existing contribution could handle debugging of an application. It was
stated that the contribution could, to the
extent that the underlying Eclipse and Web Tools editor functionality
already supported the plugging in of a set
of code to implement the Eclipse debugging APIs. VoiceXML Debugger
functionality was cited as something that would be
helpful to see in the Voice Tools Project.
Logging and Analysis tools were also proposed as good tools to include in an
The 'chicken and egg' problem of building a project plan based upon
resources which may not be committed until a
plan is available was discussed. It was proposed that a list of features be
circulated to the vtp-dev mailing list
for each participant to 'vote' for the features they would like to see. It
was proposed that the list would then be
prioritized and volunteers to develop portions that emerge as most wanted
would be solicited.
The call ended at 11:55am EST.
