[eclipse-incubator-e4-dev] Skeletal "IDE" app in the repository
A new project, org.eclipse.e4.ui.ide.application, has been checked
into the repository. This project (along with it's associated launch
config, located in the demos project) will provide a skeletal "IDE"
application. Right now, this consists of a navigator (that borrows
from the photo app) as well as a text "editor" (that doesn't support
saving). This editor is a view at the moment that's driven by
selection in the navigator. If anyone would like to help flesh this
out, please step forward. Some things we need to think about
initially, off the top of my head:
1) rendering handler contributions under parts
2) creating a proper "editor" mechanism that isn't driven by selection
and can have multiple instances
3) communicating state from parent parts to sub parts/handlers. This
may be a way to inject services into your service locator, this may be
something else. Specifically, how do we wire up "save"?
4) add other IDE like views. what do properties/outlines/etc look
like in e4? what services/mechanisms do they require?
