Re: [wtp-dev] Web Services node in the Project Explorer
This web services node has no doubt
caused more confusion and trouble than its probably worth. Hopefully
in the JEE5 and WTP 3.0 timeframe it can be redesigned.
The previous behaviour was to do a scan
of the workspace, and if there were any web service artifacts, then the
node would show. If not, it would remain hidden, until any web service
artifacts were added. This was good usability, however it was determined
this was leading to degradations in startup performance, especially on
larger workspaces where this scan could be pretty exhaustive. So,
the J2EE team switched the behaviour to always show the node, and to only
calculate the web service existence if expanded. In this model, perhaps
the filter should always be enabled to hide the node, but I think they
did not want to break current users who when upgraded all of a sudden lost
their web service node. But we could try and investigate something
else here. I know Jess has also raised some concerns with this change.

|[wtp-dev] Web Services node in the Project
In the last I-build, I have noticed new node
in the Project Explorer - "JSR-109 Web Services".
I know that users can hide it from the Customized View dialog and I suggest
that adopters can do this by default.
But I am wondering what is the purpose of this node and isn't it some kind
of reviving of look and feel from WTP 1.0?
