Discussion

  • Boris: is wondering about ESE symposium submission - is there one? Boris to follow up with Jeff and Jochen.
  • McQ: e4 demo app is interesting because we are using the mechanisms we've been exploring (modeled workbench, dependency injection), but we need to work towards being able to self-host soon.
  • McQ/Eric: started talking about backwards compatibility problems and approaches
  • McQ: bare minimum for self-hosting is a resource navigator and text editor.
  • Eric: minimum for useful self-hosting is navigator, Java editor, CVS, debugger, problems view
  • Michael: don't try to solve the compatibility problem right now, it will make it hard to focus on a simple, clean architecture
  • Boris: we can produce a bare minimum self-hosting workbench easier when we don't try to use the existing plug-ins
  • Martin O: Working on backwards compatibility too soon will drain resources
  • McQ: do we need another demo app focusing on flexible resources?
  • Doug: is working with Martin O. on flexible resources, there will be a kick-off meeting in about two weeks
  • Eric: planning to work on mechanical parts of the modeled UI
