Subject Re: Eclipse Plugin [SYNCOPE-809] as GSoC 16 Project
Date Wed, 25 May 2016 06:44:39 GMT
Hi Tushar,

1. please refactor the whole project as a Maven project having the 
following parent POM:


This will help for later stages since your (and Nuwan Sameera's for 
SYNCOPE-808) code is eventually going to be merged into the Apache 
Syncope source tree.

2. avoid putting binary files into the source tree (Maven will greatly 
help WRT this), like as

3. add a wiki page with instructions on how to (1) build and (2) use 
your plugin within Eclipse (with supported Eclipse versions)
