Buckminster Milestone 3. Completion Q1 2006

  • -Clean up and restructure- CSPEC and some related mechanisms
    • Remove 'targets' concept (outdated)
    • Remove use of 'buckminster' URL as a query vehicle (only internally used and is better modeled differently)
    • Add component name/version attributes to the data
      • In principle this is redundant information, but there are times when it can be necessary and/or useful. However, it must be described on exactly when and how the data is used and what happens when it conflicts with implicit information. There are also implications for CQUERY advisor nodes.
  • Complete the CSPEC and associated functionality
    • Define actions XML & Model/interface (including persistence model
    • Implement action driven evaluation using actors
    • Improve CSPEC generators to include actions. Build of PDE artifacts in special
    • Update the documentation to reflect new generation and CSPEC elements
  • A basic 'update site' provider
  • Headless/packaging docs
    • Generally clean up
    • Add sections on calling directly from Java and from Ant

Not yet prioritized items to complete before the 1.0 final release. Completion Q2 2006

  • Better editors for several basic formats (tentative: use Eclipse Forms)
    • RMAP Editor
    • CSPEC Editor (more generally expressed: a 'Buckminster Component Editor' that is extendable and is the umbrella editor for all component aspects)
    • CQUERY Editor (rewrite of the existing editor to conform to Forms)
  • Create Trailblazers for common usecases
  • Replace metadata persistence mechanism
    • Use a DB (e.g. Derby) instead of XML
  • Integrate full Manifest services (checksums etc) into Bill-of-materials
  • General refactoring
    • Make headless core product much smaller
    • Improve separation of concern

Misc possibilities - undecided and no timeframe

  • Disconnect headless entirely from Buckminster, possibly offer for general RCP use
    • Turn into article: 'Implementing a headless framework' and 'Implementing a headless progress monitor'
