RE: [wtp-dev] Use of BEA plugin impl

Hi Mike,
The tutorial and the accompanying files are licensed under EPL (even though BEA retains the copyright as do other contributors to Eclipse). It wouldn't hurt to get familiar with the details of EPL...
I believe you are safe with what you are doing, but I also don't want to mis-represent anything about license interpretation, so it would be best if you read the above materials yourself. If it's still unclear, you can also e-mail deeper questions to emo@xxxxxxxxxxx.
Hope this helps!

Subject: [wtp-dev] Use of BEA plugin impl

Hi, I wrote a small plugin based on Konstantin's facet tutorial.  I provided my own class to implement the action, but I was afraid to remove items from the AbstructUI Plugin class.  This didn't do much, some logging and getters and setters.  I did change this file, of course, but only the class name and a couple of methods.  Everything else was freshly written based on the tutorial.

What is the ethos for this?  There was a BEA copyright in the top of the tutorial file.  It is necessary to completely rewrite this file from scratch?  Is it okay to modify it?  Does it have to be modified beyond all recognition?  I brought in the logging methods unchanged into my version of the plugin class.

I don't want to be dishonorable or get in trouble, but frankly I also don't know a lot about implementing that class.  I use it to get some handles for my action.  Is this okay?  How should I handle this?
