Subject Re: CTRL+Z as undo
Date Fri, 04 Jan 2013 13:03:27 GMT
Hello Andrey,
I am not the only decider regarding its integration, but in my opinion
current patch still needs more work so it seems to me it would be premature
to include it in 2.9 as is:

   - Undo is only enabled on Tree elements, so  regarding ergonomics it
   will be strange for users (I tried to use it for a while to do some tests
   and I must say I reverted it) that CTRL+Z does not work in fields, inputs ,
   select boxes ...
   - As I already said, it also consumes much memory and CPU as the whole
   tree is saved each time a new element is added.
   - Regarding "Marketing" presentation of this feature, it seems weird to
   me to say "undo is now supported" in 2.9 while in fact it is only very
   partial. In my opinion introducing it as is could kind of hurt "quality"
   perception of JMeter which is important for us I think and for Apache
   - Undo needs more work  to meet minimum level of acceptance and
   UndoManager of Swing should be used I think. Maybe current patch could be
   reworked to use it

But again, many thanks for this contribution which is a good basis , but it
is true it would need some time to be fully implemented.
