Re: [wtp-dev] NewJavaClassWizardPage

I think that extensibility from the base wizards should be driven through added pages, instead of extensions or additions to exising pages. Adding to existing pages will not scale indefinately, and we risk convoluting our UI from others that might share our views of simplicity and ease of use (all jokes about our effectiveness in executing those views are welcome via bugzilla ... ;) .
That said, I think the wizards are already extensible through the WTP Wizard Framework.

Since this is an internal class, I'll let the owner of that class/compoent speak/decide for themselves, but I recommend at least 1) we don't give the impression its meant to be API (it currently has no class comments, so some should be added, as in its "experimental, substantial change" super class), 2) if it should be extensible in future (probably not in same way), it would be best to open a post 1.0 feature request to do so correctly and interested parties could track that bugzilla, and 3), as far as I'm concerned, fields should always be private, and use protected setters/getters.

[wtp-dev] NewJavaClassWizardPage

In order to address the bugzilla item

We need to make NewJavaClassWizardPage that helps select modules
extensible (i.e. promote some fields and methods to be protected).  Are
there any issues with that?
