About

The plugins models for Eclipse and NetBeans are very similar yet different. This project would provide the ability to run and embed a minimal NetBeans environment within Eclipse -- as Eclipse plugins-- , and support running NetBeans plugins like Matisse (Swing UI painter) or Coyote (dynamic languages toolkit).


Goals

Primary Goals

Glass.gif Analyze what is needed to get a minimal NetBeans environment within Eclipse.

Deliverables

I will try to implement a NetBeans environment plugin for Eclipse that have the following features:

  • Provide an Eclipse perspective.
  • Provide a Wizard to install Netbeans’ plugins.
  • Read and understand the plugin information of a Netbeans plugin.
  • Generate an Eclipse plugin that is able to run the Netbeans plugin within Eclipse.
