This page enumerates the catalog of API that will be released in JSF 1.0 (WTP 2.0). The API is broken into three categories: graduating, provisional and obsolete. Graduating API is framework that was considered provisional in previous releases and is now ready to graduate into full API status. Provisional (new) API is framework which has not been shipped in a release before and so has not had adopter soak time, but which is ready for wider adoption and refinement before being moved fully API. Obsolete API is framework that has been replaced by new framework or is being deprecated out of existence.

Graduating API

The following lists the API that will graduate from provisional to full in Europa:

Design-Time Type Utilities

Plugin: org.eclipse.jst.jsf.common Packages: org.eclipse.jst.jsf.common.internal.provisional.util Purpose: Provides utility classes for manipulating JDT IType's, primarily as Java Beans.

Provisional API

The following lists the API that will graduate from internal to provisional API in Europa:

Designtime Meta-data Framework

Plugin: org.eclipse.jst.jsf.common Packages: org.eclipse.jst.jsf.common.metadata.internal.provisional.*, org.eclipse.jst.jsf.common.metadata.traittypes.traittypes.internal.provisional.* Purpose: Provides a rich, user-extensible repository for design-time metadata. Obsoletes: Meta-data framework for 0.5 as well as Sybase contributed metadata for pagedesigner.

Tag Identification


Axiomatic Sets

Plugin: org.eclipse.jst.jsf.common Packages: org.eclipse.jst.jsf.common.sets.internal.provisional.* Purpose: Extends java.util.Set to provide sets of objects that support mathematically axiomatic operations like union and intersection as well as broader operations like mappings (functions) and constraints.

Obsolete API
