    Assignee: Tim McConnell  (was: Shiva Kumar H R)

> Description of core feature confusing
> -------------------------------------
>                 Key: GERONIMODEVTOOLS-272
>                 URL:
>             Project: Geronimo-Devtools
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: eclipse-plugin
>    Affects Versions: 2.0.0, 2.0.2, 2.0.x, 2.1.0, 2.1.x
>            Reporter: Ted Kirby
>            Assignee: Tim McConnell
>             Fix For: 2.1.0
>         Attachments: GD-272.patch
> When you install the eclipse plugin with the eclipse update manager, you get a choice
of Geronimo WTP Server Adapters:
>   Geronimo Core Feature, 
> and a series of versioned server adapters of the form:
>   Geronimo vX.X Server Adapter
> When you click on them, they all have the same descripton:
> "This feature provides the WTP Server Adapter and additional development tools for the
Apache Geronimo server."
> This text might be customized to include the version number, or changed to:
> "This feature provides the WTP Server Adapter and additional development tools for {color:red}this
specific version of the{color} Apache Geronimo server."
> For the core feature, however, the text is quite misleading.  Installing it does not
give you any working server adapter.  So, it's description should be changed to something
> "This feature provides core support required for the WTP Server Adapter for specific
versions of the Apache Geronimo server."
> It would be nice if the core feature did not show up at all in the list to install. 
It is included by those version-specific real server adapters that need it.
> Also, not sure what these "additional development tools" are, or where the user finds
out about them, but they can probably be removed from the core feature, if that feature itself
can't be removed from the install list.
