|[wtp-pmc] Dali project information|
PMC Members,As requested in yesterday's meeting, here are some links to help you get started with reviewing the Dali plug-in for the WTP internal review.
Basics:- Take a look at the viewlets on the http://www.eclipse.org/dali homepage (on the right-hand side called "Dali Demos"). This will give you a feel for the tooling and how it works.
Downloads:- The latest and best Dali build to use for the review can be found here: http://download.eclipse.org/technology/dali/downloads/drops/N-dali-200605191816/ - For reference, all Dali builds can be found here: http://www.eclipse.org/dali/downloads.html (installation instructions are also located here if you need them, but there is nothing abnormal that is needed for install)
Getting Started:- First review the information provided here: http://www.eclipse.org/dali/gettingstarted.html. - After this, follow the Getting Started section in the Eclipse Help->Help Contents - Dali O-R Mapping Tool User Guide or use the Dali User Guide PDF located here: http://www.eclipse.org/dali/docs/dali_user_guide.pdf. The Getting Started chapter includes a Quick Start and a Tutorial that will take you through most of the functionality offered in the plug-in. The tutorial is not fully complete, in that it does not include the surrounding infrastructure config to actually exercise a JPA implementation (session bean, JSP, etc). That said, it takes you through what our tooling is responsible for, which is building up the necessary artifacts to actually execute an application using the JPA provider of your choice. It is our plan to have the full tutorial available by the end of June. - Note that you can use the context-sensitive help in the Dali UI at any time by pressing F1.
Let me know if you have any questions. -Neil Neil Hauge Principal Software Developer Oracle TopLink neil.hauge@xxxxxxxxxx
