Structure bridges connect Mylyn's task context model and task-focused UI to domain-specific tools and artifacts.  Note that some bridge implementations fall out of the scope of the Mylyn project itself and should reside in the projects that they integrate with.  For documentation see: [http://wiki.eclipse.org/index.php/Mylar_Integrator_Reference#Context_API Context API]

[edit] Ideas

[edit] Enhancements

  • workflow bugs: Provide lightweight workflow actions (e.g. trigger a commit when a bug is closed). This involves adding workflow support to the Tasks framework and implementing task editor actions for for workflow.
  • bug 111700: Add interest-based folding to WTP's XML editor.
  • bug 161877: Improve duplicate detection mechanism and heuristics.
  • Improve the new user's experience. This could involve creating a welcome page, cheat sheets, and streamlining the process of going from installing Mylyn to having a task repository.
  • bug 134165: provide find functionality for task editor

[edit] Performance

[edit] Connectors

  • bug 170894: create an example connector project to be used by integrators as a template. This connector should be simple, for example, it could provide integration with a local comma-delimited value (CSV) and/or Maven tasks plug-in format as the task repository.
  • bug 170395: create PDE wizards for automatically generating task repository connectors. These would be similar to the current PDE wizards for creating plug-in projects and may also use cheat sheets to guide developer through the whole process.
