Re: [wtp-dev] JSDT status?

Hi Nitin,

Thanks, that's very helpful. Generally, what we are looking for is an IDE front-end because building one from scratch is obviously a lot of work. JSDT seems to fit the bill nicely. One thing we would need is to feed AST, type inferencing and code completion information from our tooling into it. I haven't seen if the current architecture supports pluggable backends like this, but I assume it shouldn't be too hard to do. The other are general UI fixes and improvements to make sure everything works nicely.  I saw support for debug markers on the feature list--that's another thing we want. I don't see a counterpart of JDT's debugging UI plugin anywhere, though. Is it something that's in store until someone asks for it?

There's actually quite a bit going on, most of it currently focused on making the fundamentals as rock solid as possible and cleaning up the UI.  Right now that means a number of low-level adjustments to the parser and validation code to more closely reflect _javascript_'s typing and syntax and smoothing out areas of the UI that still reflect its origin as a copy of JDT.  A number of these fixes were done for 3.0.5 and 3.1 courtesy of our newest committer, and he's already back at it for 3.2.  We'll also be tackling issues with web page integration during 3.2's development.  Time permitting, we'll be updating the existing OpenAJAX metadata support to the newer drafts and making sure our pluggable type inferrencing engine covers the cases our adopters have asked about.  The web site documentation is still an area we need to update, hopefully when my other 3.1 responsibilities are finished.

We'd love to have any contributions you're interested in making.  What were you interested in enhancing?

[wtp-dev] JSDT status?


I'm starting to work on some new _javascript_ tooling here at Google, and looking if there are existing open source solutions we could build on (contributing parts back). JSDT is the obvious choice, but the "official" information online looks old and overall it doesn't look like there's much going on. Is anyone working on it, and how actively?
