Re: [stp-dev] regarding the SOAS framework...

There is currently an open BZ entry in the DTP connectivity project for
this feature.  As an FYI, you could contribute this functionality directly
by providing the action and a launch extension.

Agreed.  However, keep in mind, the original purpose of the deployment
editor was to facilitate the deployment of heterogeneous applications in a
repeatable manner.  It was not intended as an SCA specific deployment

A nice enhancement would be to allow the editor to automatically include
dependent packages.  It would also be nice if there were a mechanism that
would allow packages to communicate information between each other within
some sort of context.  In an SCA context, it would be nice to allow the
user to wire an external service and have the binding information populated
automatically based on the deployment of the external service (assuming the
external service's implementation is also being deployed from the same

Thanks for the feedback,
