Subject [jira] Commented: (ACE-48) UI driven Installation of new Gateway
Date Wed, 07 Oct 2009 08:04:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ACE-48?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12762924#action_12762924

Toni Menzel commented on ACE-48:
--------------------------------

This is also something where we could show flawless user experience like that:
Make a generic Eclipse RCP App.
This enables us to easily distribute gateways in an OS specific format (on mac native .app
folder), so it feels like a native app.
Upon first start, you get a dialog with some easy settings (also good defaults), and click
*ok*.
Then the software is fully managed and can be moved/stopped/start like a native app but with
really instant updates (ace part).
And because you have a (minimal) UI anyway, adding a "reset" button that incorporates ACE-51

Of cause Swing UI would make it too.. but point is: that does not make it much better. People
who start .sh files are usually the ones who also can edit .config files themselves and hook
into telnet to execute resets.
So this is more about a high fidelity gateway.

> I just set up some more gateways on different machines in my appartment and wondered
if it wouldn't be cool if upon first start, a UI dialog would pop up asking for Server URL
(maybe discovering some suggestions in background already) and Gateway ID (suggesting to use
hostname).
> This "UI" can be a single Swing Dialog.
