Re: [wtp-dev] Enhanced Properties View
I actually don't have a lot of interest in it myself :), but I can give
a couple words of advice and encouragement on how you can best proceed
contributing ... first, why not as a first step, improve it as part of
webtooling project? I say this since you will want to be sure and maintain
compatibility with how its used there (at least roughly compatible, with
"migration instructions" for anyone currently using it in webtooling
project). Second, once you've improved it there, be sure to have a well
stated motivation for including it in the base --- you know, not just that
its so cool, but that xyz base component could use it for abc (and maybe
even do that bit of integration too). [Not to mention specs, unit tests,
I'd predict that as time goes on, what's
"the base" and what's not "the base" will undergo some
re-definition, so ultimately, the more "self standing" and "easy
to integrate" you can make it the better.
So, please take this for what free advice
cost :) ... oh, and most important, have fun doing it :)

Please respond to
|[wtp-dev] Enhanced Properties
I'm planning an enhanced Properties view
as contribution to Eclipse.org. It should be based on the new forms UI.
I found an already working implementation in the intial IBM code contribution
to the wtp.
Now I'm looking for anybody with specific
interest in this view. I'd like to improve it and I'd like to see it integrated
into the Eclipse Platform. Any input/discussions/interest?
