Plug-in Dependency Visualization

Revision as of 15:55, 23 April 2007 by Irbull.cs.uvic.ca (Talk | contribs) (The Project)

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.

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.
