Subject Re: [Vote] Geronimo Eclipse Plugin v1.1.0
Date Tue, 18 Jul 2006 14:00:46 GMT
Installed eclipse 3.2, installed JST (J2EE Standard Tools and its 
dependencies), pointed it to an existing geronimo installation and 
created a J2EE project.  I haven't had the time to read eclipse 
tutorials on using the JST, so didn't build anything.

Have you thought about using a tool like wink ( 
http://www.debugmode.com/wink/ ) to do a walkthrough of the 
functionality to help get users started?  I think it could really help 
get more users/developers interested and spread your knowledge :-).

IMHO we should at least have a draft of the release notes when voting 
for a release and should be testing pretty much what our users will 
see.  AFAIK, there isn't any user documentation we can look at for this 
release at the moment.

I looked at the release notes for the previous release ( 
http://people.apache.org/dist/geronimo/eclipse/PLUGIN_RELEASE-NOTES-1.0.0.txt 
) and have the following comments if it is to be used as the basis for 
this release:

* should mention JST is required.  I tried just using WST and it didn't 
work.
* describe what has changed other than the 8 bug fixes listed in JIRA 
for this release
* describe what doesn't work completely - there was some mention of 
things not completely implemented earlier in this thread
* mention help for dialogs during project creation isn't done
* limit line length in file to 80 chars for easy reading

FYI just in case others run into problems updating eclipse 3.2 with WST 
etc, I wasted a bit of time when I hit a bug with the eclipse update 
processing when downloading from a local mirror.  Added to comments to 
issue https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=148886 .   Trying 
the update with the main eclipse mirror site worked ok.

Regards,
John
