Project Plan For TEXO [texo], version 1.0


This document lays out the planned features for the first release of the server side web application generation framework Texo. This project plan inherits from the Modeling Project Plan, which should be referenced when consulting this individual project plan.

Release Deliverables

The release deliverables have the same form as is found in most Eclipse projects, namely:
  • Texo SDK (Includes code generation templates, Examples, Documentation and Source).
  • Texo Examples (contains the Texo examples models and tutorials.
  • Texo Tests (contains the testcases).

Release Milestones

As Texo is in incubation and in its initial phases of development it will not be possible to release new versions with every milestone. Overall the goal is to deliver a first version in parallel with the Helios release.

JPA annotation generation
Annotation maintenance support, JSON Webservice support
Final Build6/11/2010

Texo will not have maintenance releases in this initial phase. Nightly builds are made available through the Hudson continuous build system.

Target Environments

In order to remain current, each Eclipse release targets reasonably current versions of the underlying operating environments. The Texo Project depends upon on the Platform and EMF project, which are mostly "pure" JavaTM. Texo will target the same Java version as EMF Core, which currently requires Java 5. Eclipse Platform SDK 3.6 will be tested and validated on a number of reference platforms. Texo will be tested and validated against a subset of those listed for the platform.


Texo is mostly a development time technology which requires little internationalization, most of the components having no user interface. The remaining user interface parts of Texo are considered exemplary and thus no attention has been paid to externalize them for internationalization.
