[eclipse-dev] Planning Meeting Notes - August Nov 5, 2003

Reminder: Please try to get your status/issues to me by noon on Tuesday.

 Discussion Topics

From Text component (not sure if this was intended to be a discussion item or not):
- Cross component issue:
  - RCP see Nick's note about that
[ed. I didn't get a note from Nick.]


- How was OOPSLA?


- bug fixing
- reviewed two refactoring contributions
- continued work on XML _expression_ evaluation language
- removed dependencies to org.apache.xerces

- continued work on improved search/replace functionality
- implemented a tree based search result presentation for
  text and Java element search

Platform/JDT Text:
- wrap up OOPSLA events and discussions
- continued work on the background highly annotation painter:
  - improved stability
  - investigating use of LineStyleListern in TextViewer to accommodate
    presentation reconciling and background highlighting in order to
    reduce flickering
- background highlighting reveals errors in "Find Occurrences" engine
  that are continuously fixed
- continued on roll overs, needs further architectural improvements
  to be ready for HEAD
- started final RCP migration/merge
- bug fixing

- re-worked API for contribution of "logical variable structures"
  in the variables view. The UI now allows for individual structure
  providers to be selectively disabled. There is a new extension point
  that debug model impementors may be interested in
  - org.eclipse.debug.core.logicalStructureTypes
- added "roles" support to the debug platform. The debug platform provides
  filtering of launch configurations in the launch dialog, launch history,
  and of breakpoints in the breakpoints view.
- java launch configs now support environment variables (via a new tab)
- string substitution variables can be used in VM arguments, program
  arguments, and when specifying a working directory
- enhancements to classpath/bootpath support. The classpath tab now has a
  single tree for specifying the boot classpath and user classpath (rather
  than two tabs).

- progressing with support for Ant runtime classpath entries (preferences)
  that use variables in their paths
- progressing with support to disable the Java builder from the "External
  Tool Biulders" properties page (which will be named the "Builders" page)
