Visual Editor Project 2007-2008 Roadmap

Project focus

In general, the main theme is to get the project back on track and in good shape.

From a goals perspective, we have the following alternatives:

  1. focus exclusively on Swing, SWT and RCP and do it extremely well; deprecate everything else.
  2. continue to provide a more generic editing framework, and supporting visual editing of non-java target such as GWT, HTML, Groovy, XForms, Web pages, EXSWT, etc.

My head tells me to go with (1) and my heart with (2)
