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

- all major structure work is well in hand though bugs remain.
- good progress on performance.  Equinox is now compariable to Eclipse for non-trivial workspace startup.  Testing with 1000 bundles is underway
- scalability design improvements are coming online with a new resolver/state structure
- We have been focused on this new work (going on in a branch) and have not been producing new builds for general consumption.  Look for a new build of Equinox early next week.

Please respond to

[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)
