Re: [wtp-dev] WTP 2.0 JEE 5 support for adaptor-dummies

One of the goals for the 3.0 release, is improved public API, and documentation.
As you have mentioned, we are lacking good examples, and docs covering the new model api, and general capability for Java EE 5.

I created this bugzilla to track publishing more docs:

"Java EE" support is a general term, I am referring to basic project infrastructure/ deployment support that my team provides.
Here is a short list of the major function provided:

Generally   "Basic" Java EE support covers:

        1)  New JEE5 projects facet versions
        2) Archive support for JEE5 modules (import/export)
        3) Basic "Deployment" or run-on support for JEE5 Projects   (Tomcat/Geronimo/Glassfish tested)
        4) IModelProvider api that provides "XML" deployment descriptor support  (XML DD must exist)
        5) Many changes to "tollerate" new JEE5 Projects including optionally creating/importing xml DD file

What it doesn't support:

        1)  IModelProvider implementation that reads Annotation metadata - or combines XML with annotations
        2) Project Navigator contributions (For JEE5 projects)  that displays Deployment descriptor models
        3) JEE5 Validation/ Quickfixes
        4) Creation wizards for EJB3 class artifacts(Session/MDB)

The main "goal" of WTP 2.0 was to not inhibit Java EE scenarios with the existing infrastructure.

Please refer at the 3.0 requirements document, and add any comments to missing features you would like to see.

I don't want this to fall off the stack.  I'm also curious as to the
answer ...
