Abstract

Starting a new project requires a lot of common code & meta data. For example: (1) .doc plug-ins/features, (2) .examples plug-ins/features, (3) .test examples/features, (4) .sdk feature, (5) .releng project.

Being able to generate these things from JET templates via wizards would make it much easier to get a project up and running. Such is the aim of this project.

This project is part of 2008 Google Summer of Code.

Participants:

  • Student: Michael Robb
  • Mentor: Nick Boldt

JET Transforms / Wizards

  • Glass.gif .releng project
  • Glass.gif .test feature/plugin
  • Ok green.gif .examples feature/plugin
  • Glass.gif .sdk feature
  • Glass.gif .runtime feature
  • Glass.gif .doc feature/plugin (including sources & javadoc)

Generic JET-based wizard framework

as per Philippe's suggestion: A general purpose, extensible Sample project wizard, to create new samples for a language and a framework... Think the new PDE plugin wizard (but general purpose) and based on JET.

The basic just with a few extension markup to be able to:

  • present the title and description for the sample
  • create a new project for the correct natures
  • copy the sample files
  • optionally process them through Jet based on input of extra custom pages
