Subject Re: J2G future positioning
Date Tue, 30 Oct 2007 13:27:37 GMT
I'm not in favor of generalizing the J2G Eclipse plugin into a super  
migrator that grows in complexity as we incorporate new types of  
source formats.   I think that instead we should look into factoring  
out the parts of J2G that could be used for other types migrators  
into a separate Eclipse plugin.   Then J2G could remain as J2G but  
could prereq this new Eclipse plugin, as would any other new  
migrators we create.

Best wishes,
