RE: [wtp-dev] WTP and DTP collaboration

Thanks, Rob. I am really glad that you are able to contribute to this effort. Redirecting this thread back to wtp-dev.

At today's meeting we mainly focused on discussing how to house code that would be shared. The approach that was agreed upon is described as follows:

1. The code would be housed in separate plugins in WTP code repository (server tools project to be exact). Tim and Angel will work on setting up these plugins. DTP will pull these plugins in source form from WTP repository and build them as part of their build. This is similar to how Orbit plugins are handled. 

2. Plugins will use one of the WTP namespaces in plugin ids and package names.

3. All API in these plugins will be declared as provisional in Galileo per WTP API policy (

4. If this effort (or one of these efforts are successful) and we want to encourage adoption beyond WTP and DTP, we leave open the possibility of moving this code elsewhere (another existing project or an independent project) after Galileo. Thus #3.

I believe that's most of what we talked about. Others should feel free to jump in and fill in gaps or make corrections. We didn't agree to hold another phone call. Further collaboration would happen mostly via bugzilla.

Hi Konstantin:

I just wanted to say I know I missed today's call as well as last
week's, but I would very much like to be a part of writing this
integration code or providing patches / new code to help the process
along. I've already been providing the patches for the future server
view based on Common Navigator and am more than willing to provide time
and code for this endeavor as well.

I hope to make next week's call, assuming it's at the same time and number?

Look forward to helping.
