Re: [eclipse-incubator-e4-dev] [resources] Faceted Project Framework, anybody?

There is (as usual) some history here... WTP wanted to push down the facets work, early on, but it was rejected. At the time, at least, it seemed to be blurring together a number of concepts (like run versus build versus provisioning time information) in ways that it wasn't clear were desirable. I thought there were other issues as well, but my memory has failed me. Perhaps John A remembers?

btw, I'm not against looking at this again, but I do think we should distinguish between "we'd like to have" and "we need to meet the development scenarios".

[eclipse-incubator-e4-dev] [resources] Faceted Project Framework, anybody?

Hi E4 Resources team,

I just stumbled across the Nexus Project Proposal [1], which has
a reference to something called "Faceted Project Framework":

Facility for decomposing Eclipse projects into an extensible set
of units of functionality (called facets) that can be easily added
and removed by the user. This is a mature component that currently
resides in WTP and would benefit the community better by having
wider exposure.

Sounds like this is something we'd like to have for E4 Resources,
and sounds familiar to the "Application Layer" to Resources, aka
the "Resource Perspectives" that Michael has proposed [2]:

create arbitrary assemblies of Resources like Workingsets
or VS projects.

Does anybody have any experience with the Faceted Project
Framework? Does that idea make sense?
