Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-2009) Brush up and update Eclipse-related docs, make them user-friendly.
Date Wed, 29 Nov 2006 10:50:58 GMT
Hi Nadya,

I'm replying to your comments on the dev list rather than in the JIRA itself
(HARMONY-2009) as this seemed like a discussion.  I have written
some responses inline, but I just wondered whether since there was no
response to the "Anybody tried DRLVM+Eclipse and can share?" thread if it
would be a good idea to remove the DRLVM section from that page.  I think we
had discussed this before in a previous thread.  What do you think?

I'm not sure how useful the DRLVM information is here (see above comments),
but if we do decide to keep it I agree that we should include an
introductory paragraph.

Yes - there's another Eclipse plug-in called Subversive although I'm not
sure if anyone in the Harmony community has tried it.

Let's use "prerequisites" if that's the one in the dictionary

- Configuring Eclipse: are all steps in this section classlib-specific?


- Configuring Eclipse: some steps seemt to assume that the reader is using

Yes - it would be good to make it clear that some of the steps are specific
to Windows.

I agree

I think I would have to see what that looked like before commenting.  It
does seem to make sense, but I'm not sure if it would be confusing to have
so many sections in the page.

thanks, Nadya
