Subject PoC to show new feature
Date Fri, 27 Apr 2007 13:36:08 GMT
I have written a PoC to illustrate the concept we have discussed earlier 
(search for thread with topic "Does this feature already exist?").

The PoC works for add/remove projects, but don't support add/remove 
depencies in the pom or in the list of derived dependencies.

I must work on my report now, so I haven't planned any more programming 
  before delivery.

As it is, it's pretty useless, but I can work more on it later, if the 
community is interested.

A rough todo list would then be:

* Port the PoC to trunk or continuum-1.1-alpha.

* Implement update (i.e., add and remove dependencies from pom.xml)

* Add reference to original project in the derived projects

* Add reference to original dependency in the derived dependencies

* Read derived dependencies from xml-file (enable/disable in xml-file).
    (log4j:log4j:1.2.14, commons-logging:commons-logging:1.1 and 
jmock:jmock:1.1.0 are now set as derived dependencies)

* Remove all java 1.5 syntax to conform with java 1.4 syntax

* GUI: tree structure (click to maximize and show the derived projects)

+ clean up the code and proper tests


Is tool support for the concept useful?

Given proper code, syntax, etc. is it probable that it would be accepted 
into continuum?
