A few enhancements requested for Antidote

           Summary: A few enhancements requested for Antidote
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Antidote
        AssignedTo: ant-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: ccampbell@novell.com


1) Application/User properties - This controls the placement of the 
application frame on the desktop, 
the splitpane divider locations, open projects, last visited directory when 
opening or saving, text 
fonts and colors for console pane and source viewer, etc...

2) Preference Manager - Allows the creation of editors for preferences for 
each module if desired.

3) New property editor - The new property editor is created by Introspecting 
the selected task creating
appropriate field for the getter/setter bean property.  Since Ant tends to not 
have getters a middle
piece was created to port the setters to properties thus giving read/write 
capability to an otherwise
write only property.

4) New visual look for the editors - Follows a lot like the eclipse editor for 
their xml pieces (I don't
know how better to explain it, it's a must see addition).

5) Property Helper - Much like a code completion piece in an IDE except this 
only helps with the property
selection.  If a user types a $ and then nothing for predetermined time up 
pops a property chooser with 
a list of already defined properties.

6) Source Viewer - Shows the document that is being created.  No editing 
capability.  Color coding
(preference editor does not currently work).

7) Cut/Paste/Copy - Functionality allows the user to Cut/Paste or Copy/Paste 
any tree node 
(Type/Task/Property/Target) in the navigator and across projects.

8) Help - This is the JavaHelp system, but currently is not functioning.  
Plans to change to a web browser
launcher if we move to a Java WebStart deployment plan.  The only way to keep 
the JavaHelp system is to
Jar all the documentation that is produced for Ant.

9) Wizard - The wizard is now accessible from a menu within the running 
application.  Needs work!
