Multi-Configuration Support Requirement

ID: Multi-Config: FR001 - Configuration data format & persistence

Description: Each MTJ Java ME project should store the multi-configuraton (multi-device) meta data. We should define the data format and persistence the data.

1. Data format:

  <configurations>
     <configuration active="true" name="A910">
        <device group="MOTODEV SDK for Java(TM) ME" name="A910"/>
        <symbolSet>
           <symbol name="CLDC" value="1.1"/>
           <symbol name="JSR82" value="1.0"/>
        </symbolSet>
     </configuration>
     <configuration active="false" name="S40_5th_Edition_SDK_Feature_Pack_1">
        <device group="Series 40 5th Edition SDK, Feature Pack 1" name="S40_5th_Edition_SDK"/>
        <symbolSet>
           <symbol name="screen.isTouch" value="false"/>
           <symbol name="WMA" value="2.0"/>
        </symbolSet>
     </configuration>
  </configurations>

As the xml file shows above, a project meta data file contains several configurations, each configuration contains a device and a symbolSet. One and only one configuration is "active".

2. Data persistence: We use MTJ J2ME project meta data file (.mtj file) for configuration data store. We remove the former <device> element of the file, add <configurations> element to the file.

ID: Multi-Config: FR002 - Multi-configuration Reusable Management UI component

Description: We will manage (add/remove/edit/switch-active) configurations in seviral place (such as in Application Descriptor Form Editor, in project properties page, in peojrct create wizard page, etc.), so we should create a reusable UI component for configuration management. DeviceSelector.java is a example.

ID: Multi-Config: FR003 - manage configurations

Description: To let users manage (add/remove/edit/switch-active) configurations easily, We will have 3 place to manage configurations: 1. Project create wizard page. 2. Application Descriptor Editor. 3. Project properties page.

manage configurations in project create wizard

manage configurations in project Application Descriptor Editor

ID: Multi-Config: FR004 - Separate deploy folders for multi-target build and distribution

Description: Since the project will have multiple devices associated to it, the deployment folder also need to separated according to the devices associated on the project. when the project is build it must generate a jar/jad for each of the devices associated to the project.

We will use *configuration name* as deployment folder name. User must switch configuration before build for another configuration.

One folder for each configuration

ID: Multi-Config: FR005 - Change Antenna Ant build file & EclipseME project importer

Description: Since deployment folder structure will change for build multi-configs, exported Antenna Ant files will also change for the target folders.

Since meta data file format will change for introducing multi-config support, EclipseME project import feature should change according the new MTJ meta data format.

Maybe NetBeans project importer also suffer some change.
