> Create an Eclipse plugin that will help to synchronize work between a Java project in
Eclipse and CayenneModeler. The focus of this task is not to build a lot of features into
the plugin (we'll be doing that later of course), but rather to create a production-quality
plugin that we can release with Cayenne 3.1. A possible set of functionality for the initial
version of the plugin:
> 1. An ability to start Cayenne Modeler from Eclipse, opening a given cayenne-xyz.xml
(Cayenne Modeler application is based on Java Swing, so, actually the task is starting a standalone
Java application by the plugin from Eclipse IDE)
> 2. Implement a communication protocol between Eclipse and CayenneModeler (not sure if
Eclipse frameworks already have something for this purpose that we can reuse?)
> 3. Run mapped Java classes generation, and refresh the XML files in Eclipse when the
model is saved by CayenneModeler
> 4. Autorefresh projects in CayenneModeler when XML files change in Eclipse.
> 5. Support switching between the Java code in Eclipse IDE and the model in Cayenne Modeler(and
vice versa), based on user selections (eg jumping from Cayenne ObjEntity to the related Java
> 6. Provide several ways of installing created plugin to Eclipse(simple plugin, update
> The initial plugin can (should?) be built based on the prototype already done per
(the patch in this Jira will be committed to SVN soon)
