Subject [jira] [Created] (ZEST-49) Tool to easily report full application assembly
Date Wed, 08 Jul 2015 16:35:05 GMT
Paul Merlin created ZEST-49:

             Summary: Tool to easily report full application assembly
                 Key: ZEST-49
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZEST-49
             Project: Zest
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Paul Merlin

Getting help on assembly issues isn't easy. Currently, one has to provide the application
assembly code that can span several files. Not really convenient.

The [Envisage Tool|https://zest.apache.org/java/latest/tools-envisage.html] allow to browse
an application assembly at runtime and to export the assembly as PDFs. This is excellent but
having something that export assembly info as a copy/paste-able text format would greatly
ease the process.

Moreover, Envisage require a graphical context and user interaction. The Qi4j SDK should provide
a shorter path to get a full report of application assembly.

On the road to 2.0 we already extracted non UI code from Envisage into the tools/model-detail
module. This module should be improved to provide, at least, a simple service that output
the whole Application Model on application start in a copy/paste-able text format either to
stdout or to a file.
