|Re: [eclipse-dev] Eclipse Project DRAFT 2.2 Plan Comment|
Thanks for your comments / requests Gary.
Eclipse's Ant Integration is not part of the JDT subproject (just an FYI). It is part of the Platform subproject. The Ant plugins have no requirements for the JDT plugins.
Most of your ideas already existed as bug reports. I have created a new one for the Ant view "editing" capabilities. I have indicated the bug report numbers in-line below.
I would add your votes / comments / patches for consideration in the 2.2 dev stream.
We are working on the Ant 2.2 plan and will soon be having discussions on the Platform-Ant mailing list.
>>Improve Ant integration
>>O Improve the Ant view
>> O Navigation: clicking on a task moves to the proper task in an opened editor.
>> O Drill down tasks in the Ant view tree view by treating attributes as leaf nodes (which can be edited) and child elements as nodes. The goal is to provide an ant UI inside e which maybe beyond the scope for this component, but one can dream on... Drilling down could work for editing but would perhaps not be great for creating new tasks. I am not 100% behind the tree metaphor but some kind of UI would be less painful than editing raw XML.
>> O Add Ant View Filters:
>> O Show tasks with descriptions.
>> O Show tasks with descriptions matching a regular _expression_, for example: "public: *".
>> O Allow ant to optionally run in a separate process.
