Re: [ui-best-practices-working-group] [ide-dev] Working sets (WAS: Re: Java IDEs comparison)

Let's start with http://help.eclipse.org/neon/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.platform.doc.user%2Fconcepts%2Fcworkset.htm

Out of the box most views use the WWS by default, which allows to quickly switch the working set for all views in a window. In previous releases there were toolbar buttons that made it easy to tweak the WWS. Those are now hidden by default, but can be made visible again via Window > Perspective > Customize Perspective...

As I said before, I'm also not using WWSs and I doubt many people do. So, might be time to retire them if no one objects here.

I have to admit, I'm also curious. My usage of working sets is exactly like yours. I'd suggest we do some code archeology and try to figure out what use-case window working sets (and working sets in general) were intended to support. If the main use-case we care about is the adding-structure to the package-explorer use-case that you and I seem to use them for then we could probably brainstorm a much more efficient UI that addresses that same use-cases.

I’ll echo Bruno’s question. What is a “Window Working Set”? I really have no idea how it’s different than regular Working Sets.

Frankly, I just use Working Sets to add some hierarchy to the projects I have open in my workspace (I have over 400 at the moment) and really only use it in the Project/Package Explorer and to scope Searches. They’re not very easy to set up though if that’s all you wanted.

First entry in working set configuration window [1]. In JDT schoold views (JSDT, DLTK, ...) there is always shortcut on view menu (before standard working sets).

I personally use it together with mylyn:
1. Select Window Working Set in Resource and Type selection dialog + in any exlporer
2. From Task List, create Mylyn Working set with some projects
3. Activate mylyn working in Task List.

As the result, all views with “Window Working Set” activated will be simply filtered.

Wait, what's a "Window" Working Set?

I agree regarding Window Working Sets - I never use them. But in all my workspaces I use working sets, to e.g. easily switch to or search in documentation, which is a working set in my workspaces.

3. Working sets, one of most powerfull thing in eclipse isn’t widely supported across projects, examples:
3.1. “Window Working Set” entry sometimes isn’t available in fast view menu (Platform views), sometimes is (JDT school based views)
3.2. Working sets types not always available between views, for example still is not possible to import existing project into mylyn working set directly



The user story that Working Sets aims to address, isn't it better served with different workspaces and/or nested projects?
