Hello,

I am finding myself working a lot on the RAP tree implementation
(https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=232406) and I keep
wondering if the merging of tree and table on the RAP end is in the near
or distant future. There is a lot of functionality that will be duplicated
if/whenever tree catches up to table. I believe there has been a
discussion on this point before, but I can't seem to find it in the
newsgroups. I was about to implement the cell padding for trees but I see
that there isn't a ThemeManager for tree as of yet. So could anyone give
me a hint as to why tree is in the state that it is in? (e.g., Not enough
time to implement; Big roadblocks; SWT implementation too limiting;
Waiting for Qooxdoo 0.8 migration, etc.) I guess the real questions are:
What is the plan for the tree implementation? and What are the reasons
that I should or should not be working on tree?

Thanks.

Sorry, when I said ThemeManager, I meant ThemeAdapter.

Hi Austin,

thanks for your interest in helping with the Tree. Yes it was
discussed before to merge the client-side parts of Tree and Table.
And certainly, this is the way to go on the long run.

The current Tree implementation is very limited and that won't
change in 0.7.x. The 0.7.x tree is blocking most of the current bugs
filed against the Tree widget.

The 0.8 version seems to be a major rewrite and probably better
supported, but I still doubt that it will meet the requirements of
RAP with respect to aligning with SWT, support for virtual items and
'server-centricness', etc.

For grater improvements it would certainly be worth to wait for or
start working on the table/tree merger.

Does that answer your post?

Cheers,
Rüdiger
