Re: [ide4edu-dev] GSoC

Hello Wayne,

Thanks for your prompt reply!
I am willing to take up this project... 
Like you say, producing a repeatable build sounds interesting!
I have some ideas on cutting down features to provide an IDE just sufficient for educational purposes...
However, I wish I could get a feel of the existing project...

This is my problem:
I run the "eclipse" executable.
I get a screen as seen in the screenshot (attached) when I choose a new workspace.
The IDE opens up when I choose a workspace with existing projects.
But I think this is my default IDE since I don see any difference in the perspectives...

And I don't find any logs...

Could you guide me on my project proposal?
Should the objective be to produce a new repeatable build?

Well... therein lies one of our problems. That build is from 2008. I should think that providing a decent repeatable build (preferably based on Maven/Tycho) would be a great GSoC project.

Is there anything in the log? (.metadata/.log)?

Hello Wayne,

I'm Srihari from Bangalore, and I'm Interested in eclipse IDE for education...
I read through the project wiki and I am really interested in the scope of this project... 
I have a few ideas and I would like to apply through GSoC.
Can I share my ideas here?

I was looking to explore the ide4edu environment but however, when I downloaded the ide4edu from ,I'm having troubles installing... can I get help? (the application shows a blank window with just the window frame)

Sorry for the delay. I will be totally frank with you.

I think that both of these ideas are far more work than can reasonably be accomplished in a single term by a single individual.

Perhaps you can narrow down these ideas into more manageable bits. Please also give me some idea how you would approach the implementation, what help you would need from me, etc.

Hi Wayne.

Thank you for your answer.

As for my ideas about Eclipse IDE for Education:


   Implementing functionality that would be some kind of virtual teacher.

   Beginners in Java programming at their first months of studing Java
   language often forget about programming style. Also beginners inclined to
   do many absurd mistakes. So, virtual techer could help to format code,
   explain mistakes and errors, help to avoid bugs, giving extended tips and

   For example. Student tries to call a non-static method inside a static
   method, but it doesn't work and student doesn't understand why, because
   he/she is a begginer and has not yet had time to learn it. A virtual teacher
   could give to a student a quite full explanation about static methods: what
   is a static method and how to use it. Such tips can help students to learn
   language quicklier. If student writes code not properly, for example
   method's name starts with a capital letter, he/she would get a reminder,
   that such naming is not good . Such style checking can form a habit to
   write a maintainable and error-free code from their first days of study.

   Visualization of JVM working. It would introduce JVM's work results
in anintuitive and
   clear form: compiled byte code, stack, heap, references between
objects, states
   of virtual machine and so on.

I am looking for new experience and I also would be glad to implement any
other ideas.

Hi Svetlana. There is help on the project's wiki page [1]. I'll be honest with you: this project has stalled due to lack of involvement. I am interested in reviving it. However, due to the lack of recent work, we may be a little out of date; our bug list may not be entirely up-to-date. There are lots of opportunities in this project, so I invite you to be creative and see what you think you can bring to the project.

Currently I am studying to obtain master degree in Chernihiv State Technological University (Ukraine). I would like to participate in Google Summer Of Code in Eclipse IDE for Education . I have become familiar with writing RCP applications, downloaded source code and looked over it. What should I do to participate in this project? I am sorry for writing in mailing list, I didn't find another email to write. ______________________________
