Subject Re: Proposal: Improve runtime integration with tooling (All non-eclipse users please read)
Date Wed, 12 Jul 2006 22:35:05 GMT
Looks good to me Sachin (at least for those items that I understand). 
The Geronimo runtime requirement to support deployment of modules that 
don't comply with the specification (because of the IDE structure) 
sounds like it will be challenging.

Just a few comments/questions:
- Is this a roadmap for multiple releases or what you think is needed in 
the next release?  If it's a roadmap for multiple release it would be 
helpful if these were indicated (or perhaps just a simple breakdown of 
r1.2 and anything else as "future").
- Can we include an item to support a little-G assemblies via the plugin 
in the future?
- Rather than one catch-all item to support the deployment plan editors, 
these should probably be listed individually.  I suspect they will most 
likely be implemented individually.   Also, are you thinking of these as 
wizard-like capabilities really just editors?
- What are your thoughts about providing a mechanism to query available 
elements that are already deployed in the server for the purpose of 
offering the users lists of potential dependencies when building the 
plans.  Building the plans using wizards were facilitate such features 
but this probably isn't feasible with just editor support.
- I recall that Paul had mentioned the desire to include the ability to 
generate a plugin from the tooling.  Should this be added to the list?
