RE: [] October 11th Conference callagenda (now with the time!)

Here goes:


Looking at RCP, Platform, JDT, and PDE, I see:

-          core runtime (osgi based)

-          resources (including virtual file system layer)

-          comparison framework

-          command facility

-          help system

-          build system

o        Ant example

-          debug framework

o        Java example

-          language development tools framework (IDE)

o        Java example

-          team facility

o        CVS example

-          workbench framework (ui components)

-          search framework

-          update manager

-          textual edit framework



What I don’t see but would like to:

-          metadata facility (think EMF, but incorporated into platform)

-          more later… ;)



In the time allotted, I also generated some samples of the diagrams I mentioned and attached the output for RCP and PDE (others are similar, just picture bigger and messier with no time to cleanup before the Bjorn buzzer).  I think these could be useful if adorned with additional information and hyperlinked to drill into more fine-grained component and class diagrams.  Of course, never choosing to draw one by hand, but reverse-engineer whenever possible.


Best Regards,

  • Architecture contribution to the Roadmap. We need to have a definition of what each project will contribute to the architecture section of the Roadmap and when we plan to have those contributions ready. Bug#103916 has some advice.
  • Architecture diagram. Last year we had a block diagram architecture diagram as part of the Roadmap. We need at least an updated version of that, and better yet, a better diagram. What would that diagram look like? And how could we create it?
  • Conflicts. Are there are any architectural issues that are creating conflicts between the projects or that the PMCs anticipate will create conflicts? One of the purposes of the AC is to expose these and at least start the conversation about how they might be solved.
