Hello,

I already where on the EMFT web page but I can not see how to take part at the development.
Already using oaw4.3.1 I started to have look at oaw5 which is now part of the eclipse project. During my work with oaw I developed a generic post processor which allows to configure a pretty printer e.g. for C++ using Uncrustify. All the pretty printer has to fulfill is, that it is able to work with input- and output-streams. In fact the generic post processor is able to work with any post processing filter supporting i/o-streams.
I think it is very useful and so I would like to contribute it to the mwe source code.
On the other hand I had a look at the code of mwe. What I miss during my work with oaw is to use environment variables to define properties as like as in ant scripts. I would like to add it to the WorkflowParser class.

Can anybody tell me how to start?

Regards
Frank

Hi Frank,

welcome to EMFT.
A good starter would be to file a bug[1] and attach a patch with your
proposed solution. If you'ld like to add core funtionality it is a good
idea to outline your approach before you actually start to implement
something so we can discuss design decisions prior to your effort with
implementing a certain function. We'ld be happy to review the patch and
after a couple of iterations it'll probably become part of the codebase.

Regards,
Sebastian

Hello Sebastian,

thanks for your answer. I just made a proposal for a generic PostProcessor with Bug report 292191. Since this does not interfere any existing code it is a quite simple proposal.

For my other idea (supporting access to environment variables for <property .../> as in ant scripts) I would like to try a patch implementation. To do that I had a look at the src-files in "eclipse/plugins" of the oaw5 installation from the itemis homepage. I tried to setup a workspace to change the code but it turns out to get quite bad. Is there a prepared cvs project for EMFT as I found for EMF?

Regards,

Frank
