RE: [tigerstripe-dev] Plugin migration from version 2.2.4 to latest

Hi Kalyan,
I am in meetings in the US this week - I will get you a detailed reply next week, but in essence, *most* of the class names etc in the plugin.xml should be migrated automatically, but you may find you have to change a few items.
In the API  the majority of methods now return Collections rather than Arrays. (where appropriate!). The name of the methods have been tidied up in a lot of cases too, so the that "Iext" naming has been removed - eg getIextFields() is now just getFields() for example.
In the templates, the main change is that the $pluginRef context entry is now called $pluginConfig.
We are still working on the API so there may be one or two further changes yet to come - hopefully not too many. We are also working on documentation of the new stuff (and migration hints).
Let me know if you have any specific questions, and I can try to get you a quick answer,

Subject: [tigerstripe-dev] Plugin migration from version 2.2.4 to latest


 We have some plugins written on top of version 2.2.4 and would like to migrate them to latest version. One change is clear that com.tigerstripe* is renamed to org.eclipse.tigerstripe.*
But there are many more changes.
So, I would like to know if there is any migration procedure to migrate the plugins to new tigerstripe versions?

Thanks in advance
