Re: [eclipse-dev] Contributing a Brief key binding


This would be better discussed in the newsgroup, where you will likely 
find other people interested in it.
However, you are on the right track. 

Regretably we cannot consider adding this as a patch to 2.0.  However, you 
could actually package the key binding configuration in a separate plugin 
and would not have to modify the UI or JDT-UI plugins (should list them as 
dependencies though).  You could make it available separately for now, and 
we could consider integrating it with Eclipse post 2.0.

If you encounter problems (e.g. there is basically no support for VI-style 
key modes, but I'm not sure if Brief uses these), please enter bug reports 
against Platform-UI.

Good luck!

        Subject:        [eclipse-dev] Contributing a Brief key binding

Eclipse Developers,
I'd like to contribute a Brief emulation key binding configuration to

From my observation, it's not too complicated, simply a matter of adding 
additional acceleratorConfiguration (and related settings) to the
org.eclipse.ui2.0.0/plugin.xml configuration file and

Some additional settings also need to be added to the
org.eclipse.jdt.ui_2.0.0 plugin.xml. 

I realize that eclipse is in on freeze 2, so now might not be the best 

Please let me know if there's a better forum for this type of question, or
if there is interest, to whom I can send the patch.
I think I have gotten a grasp on Eclipse's key binding approach, but I 
be off the mark, so please let me know if there is a better way to
accomplish this.
