Re: [wtp-dev] Java EE Configuration Editors Project Proposal

The model will track where information originally came from, so when an edit happens it will be made at the location the data came from. The is possible because Sapphire models are views on underlying data, so a model element for say servlet mapping would wrap either a XML DOM element from descriptor parse or the JDT AST node for the annotation.

When new content is added, it's destination will be based on policy that we will need to develop. For instance, if descriptor exists new content can be sent to the descriptor, otherwise it can go to annotations. We can also come up with preferences to control desired destination.

Eventually, we may add some actions to help the user in moving declarations from one system to another.

A few questions about the editor...

From the description section:

"Each editor would bring in information from the module's XML configuration file as well as the relevant annotations into a unified view. A user working with the editor will not necessarily know what flavor of configuration is being edited.

How will the configuration output be determined when being edited in the unified view?  Does this imply that the editor will continue updating a configuration based on where that config was read?  If so, what is the granularity?  What if the configuration is mixed between annotations and XML?  Would there be some sort of user defined preferences to determine where edits will take place by default (when there is no existing metadata to go by or the config is mixed)?

Attached is a draft proposal for Java EE Configuration Editors project that I mentioned on this list before EclipseCon. Please review and comment. I have kept the document brief and to the point. If anything is unclear, please ask for more detail.


I am looking for some +1s from WTP PMC and Chuck (as Java EE Tools lead) before sending this over to EMO to start the official project creation process.
