This page describes how you can implement a Mylyn connector in 5 minutes using your computers memory as the persistance medium.

Step 1: Get the Source

Point your favorit SVN client towards


and get all the projects.

Step 2: Create a Fragment Project

Create a fragment project for your connector with the org.eclipse.mylyn.industrial.core project as the host.

Step 3: Create a connector.xml

This is going to be moved to the extension point mechanism in a very near future version. For now, create a connector.xml file in the root of your project with the following contents:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<connector	xmlns="ptth://">
	<repository name="Memory">
		<persistor name="Memory">
			<property name="can-create-new-task" value="true" />
			<property name="can-create-task-from-key" value="true" />
			<property name="can-query-repository" value="true" />
			<property name="can-synchronize-tasks" value="true" />
 			<property name="can-get-attachments" value="true" />
 			<property name="can-post-attachments" value="true" />

Step 3: Implement IPersistor

Make an extension to org.eclipse.mylyn.industrial.core.persistor and open the class that you have typed in there. Now implement the following class:
