Dali 1.0 planning


Major Themes

  • Ecosystem Integration
    • Platform/JDT/WTP/DTP
  • Extensibility
    • Build in from the bottom and up.
  • Round out JPA support
    • UI support for XML Descriptor (orm.xml)
    • Cover more of the spec
  • Usability - (some items depend on new feature development in the JDT)
    • Better validation, quick fixes, code assist

Draft Milestone Plan (Very subject to change, will align with WTP 2.0 Milestones)

M1 - August 24th 2006

  • No new functionality planned

M2 - October 6th 2006

  • DTP Migration

  • Using Facet Framework (may need to move to M3 based on model rework)

M3 - November 17th 2006

  • orm.xml implementation 20%
  • Integrated with WTP Build

M4 - January 4th 2006

  • orm.xml support on par with annotation support
  • Complete support for remaining high-priority annotations (adopter requested, high use)
  • All wizards using WTP Wizard Framework that are able to. (Non-JDT UI related wizards)
  • Preliminary API/Extensions
  • Support for features that allow for adoption (public fields, fully qualified annotations, mixed access type, etc)

  • Tabbed properties (if technically possible)
  • In source annotation auto-completion (if API provided by JDT)
  • Quick fixes/text markers (basic support)

  • Basic persistence.xml editing
  • Basic automap capability (wish list)
  • Ability to map to binary classes (wish list)
