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.

Deliverables

Legend

Glass.gif Needs some investigation

Progress.gif Patch in progress

Ok green.gif Bug fixed / Feature added

Bugs

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

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

3. Add improved navigation support

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

5. Ok green.gif Add Screenshot support (Bug#199491)

6. Ok green.gif Add Show Version Number (Bug#200046)

7. Ok green.gif Introduce error reporting This was a number of small bugs that provides "smart error reporting" when errors are found in the dependencies

8. Ok green.gif Investigate the use of the Draw2D Directed Graph Layout (Bug#200195)
