Re: [wtp-dev] should WST have references to JDT?

After a brief review of the J2EE Team's contributions, it looks like we (Chuck's team) could do this with some effort (but nothing foundation shaking). The following plugins from our contribution currently reference org.eclipse.jdt.core
Of these:
-- jdt.integration.* and could be relocated to the JST component.
-- the dependencies from common.ui.* could be refactored out because they are auxillary pieces of functionality.
-- common.frameworks does not currently have any references to jdt.core so the dependency can be removed.
-- emfworkbench.integration could be refactored, but this may have other implications. The only dependency is in the base class EditModel to provide access to an ICompilationUnit's working copy. We could refactor this out and change the affected subclasses of Edit Model where necessary.
-- annotations.* could be relocated to JST since they deal with annotations in Java files anyway
I'm not familiar enough to comment on the validation.* plugins. Vijay -- could you jump in on this one?
I'm not sure if the relocations are acceptable since there have clearly been discussions relating to where these should be placed, and they have currently been placed in WST. I know we've gone through several renames and relocations in preparation for the WTP drop. Any comments on this?

I do not see any problems with WST referencing JDT, if it needs its functionality, since JDT is part of base platform.

Just curious to how others feel about this.  In my working model of the WTP universe I'm assuming that there's no reason to have WST plugins reference JDT.  I know we currently do have such references in our WST code but I'm assuming these will eventually be removed or relocated to the JST side.  I suppose the only exception that I can think of would be 'generic' function that just happens to be currently located in the JDT packages (and we  should really chase down eclipse to refactor this sort of function).  Any opinions?
