Subject Geronimo Plugin Framework Integration with Eclipse
Date Thu, 15 Jun 2006 04:07:52 GMT
I was talking to a set of folks that are looking at Geronimo and one of the unique things they
are 
interested in that Geronimo has and others do not is the plugin support.

They're view of the world is that their developers use Eclipse as their IDE and like the WTP
work 
that has been done so far (koodos Sachin).  What they would like the ability to do is from
Eclipse 
be developing and testing and testing an application and when they get it right is to export
that 
application in as a CAR (not from the Admin Console) directly out of Eclipse.

There were several things that they asked about:

One item was sensitivity to releases.  From their perspective this would be useful if the
CAR could 
tolerate several versions of Geronimo.  If its only good for a specific version that limits
the 
usefulness.

Integration with Eclipse rather than having developers work the Geronimo console.  It didn't
seem as 
compelling.

They would like the Geronimo infrastructure to be able to distribute CARs throughout a cluster.

They had several other thoughts about G that would make it interesting as well but they are
Geronimo 
server related so I'll post in another thread.

Aaron, thoughts?
