Newsreader/Salvo UI Integration in the workbench/Work done during May 4 to May 10

I started researching on implementing the functionality “Enable a way for people to create an eclipse user id within the workbench”

As discussed at the last meeting with the mentors, I tried to reuse the same technique used by the mylyn to create new users.

I went through the mylyn source and figured out the method used to create bugzilla users.


I did some research on bugzilla API and found that there exists a way to create users using RCP [1]. I tried to connect to eclipse bugzilla using apache XML-RCP, but it is unsuccessful up to now.


I have created a very simple plugin for creating Bugzilla users from the workbench using the same method used in the mylyn and shared it with my mentors.
