PDE tooling for DS [message #588418] Mon, 19 January 2009 21:31

I just downloaded 3.5M4 to have a look at the tooling for creating service
component definitions.

It is a good start but falls somewhat short of what we need. So I was
wondering if any further work was planned for 3.5? I had a look at the
PDE/UI 3.5 plan, but the scope of the DS tooling work wasn't clear.

We have been using DS for 12 months and make extensive use of attributes
that are not supported by the custom editor: target, bind and unbind on
service references. We also have naming conventions and idioms that the
editor could make use of, or possibly help enforce.

For our development I created a plugin to add the XML schema for DS to the
XML catalog so we can create files from the schema and have the XML editor
understand the valid options for the various elements.

After looking at the PDE tooling in 3.5M4 I think we are better off sticking
with our current approach of using the XML editor with the schema defined.

Namaste, Bruce
