Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (IBATIS-402) New Wizards to Abator for Eclipse using the DTP packages ...

Hi Jeff,

About item 1 and 3, I don't think DTP dependencie is a problem, it will 
really make the whole idea simpler. At least here (Brazil) this is a common 
plugin and is very hard to find a web developer without it.

2, I'm weak in extension points, I know the main concept (IOC) but I don't 
know the right way to use it. HMO this is a good option, if the guy don't 
have DTP he will be able to continue using the plugin as it is today (but, 
today, the plugin just write a template xml - and this could be done by a 
simple copy and paste).

I saw a great amount of code to help to edit the the abator xml config 
file - today this is the plugin: a xml editor - I'm right?

To write this file (the abator config file) you have to know by heart your 
database structure, table and column names and edit the file. This is cool 
when you have just a few changes to do, when you have an entire database to 
specify this is really boring!!!

4, this is the idea, but the xml will save a lot of rework when we had to 
regenerate the classes. The same wizard can be used to change the xml file.

Well, as you can see my english is a kind of criptogram. 8)

Right now I´m trying to get the columns from the database metadata ...
