The E4 Resources work is about improving Eclipse Platform Resources, both in terms of APIs and end-user usability.
The Flexible Resource Model is especially about making the concept of a Project more flexible.

The Goals are listed in detail on the Requirements page, in short:

  • Enable Eclipse-based products to better adapt to the way how their users are working -
    • support very large workspaces and aliasing (symbolic links) well,
    • allow importing any legacy project and file system structures,
    • be competitive with (Visual Studio, Slickedit, Netbeans, IDEA) and other IDE's,
    • integrate with (Maven, Proprietary project systems...) and other project systems where appropriate,
    • enable future environments (client/server, distributed, web, collaborative),
  • provide simpler and safer programming models enabling more concurrency,
  • building a solid base of Eclipse for the next 10 years.

Interested Parties: (alphabetically) - See also the Kick-off meeting:

  • Component Lead: Doug Schaefer (Wind River)
