Understanding dependencies between plug-ins in Eclipse is a complex task. The current plug-in dependency analysis tools available in Eclipse are restricted to simple tree views with drill-down support. This project aims at adding visualization support to the Eclipse Plug-in Development Environment (PDE) in order to help provide cognitive support to developers as they analyze their plug-in dependencies. This view is being done as part of the Google Summer Of Code.

The Project

The dependency visualization aims to provide a set of views to assist with plug-in dependency analysis tasks. In particular, the views will provide cognitive support to people as they attempt to understand the dependencies between their plug-ins.

For a complete description of the view, please visit the project website.

For a complete list of all the open issues, please see our bug list.

Progress.gif Patch in progress

Ok green.gif Bug fixed / Feature added


Deliverables

1. Complete the PDE View and add 3 plug-in filters

2. Add dependency path analysis (show why a plug-in is required by highlighting dependency paths). (Bug#183815)

3. Add improved navigation support

4. Remove the dependency on GEF (Bug#183820)

Accessing the code
