Re: [platform-ui-dev] Remote TreeViewer Article

Hi Peter,

      I would be interested to review the article. To submit it, there's a
category in Eclipse bugzilla for the Eclipse Corner Articles.

Kind Regards,

  Subject [platform-ui-dev] Remote TreeViewer Article                      

Hi folks,

I'm interested in writing an article about using TreeViewer with an
ILazyContentProvider backed by a remote data access layer.  This
seems to be a common request on various mailing lists and newsgroups,
and there are some non-obvious design issues in practice.  What would
be the best way to contribute this?  I am already a committer on
Nebula, so there should be no IP problems -- I just want to get it in
front of lots of eyes.

Here's a preview of topics I plan to cover:

- Getting started with ILazyContentProvider
- Designing the remote API
- Caching data on the client
- Integrating with server-side sorting and filtering
- Respecting client-side edits

I hope to get this hacked out over the weekend.  Where should I send
it when it's done?  Of course, I'd also appreciate it if someone
would like to volunteer as a reviewer.
