The WTP UI consistency effort focuses on the consistency of the WTP user interfaces (all pieces including, but not limited to, editors, menu contributions, views, preference pages, properties pages and wizards) with the Eclipse platform and the various operating systems (the UI should be consistent with the OS).


This effort also handles UI usability improvements, such as those that can be seen in the XSD and WSDL editors and Web services wizard.

[edit] Component Work

[edit] WSDL Editor: improve look and feel

Development contacts: Craig Salter, Richard Mah

Status: In progress

Open Bugs | Resolved Bugs

The improvement of the look and feel of the WSDL editor has already begun. Significant changes can be seen in WTP 1.5. Further work is still required.

TODO: break down the current design into top 10 work items for 2.0 and create bugs.

[edit] XSD Editor: improve the look and feel

Development contacts: Craig Salter, Keith Chong

Status: In progress

Open Bugs | Resolved Bugs

The improvement of the look and feel of the XSD editor has already begun. Significant changes can be seen in WTP 1.5. Further work is still required.

TODO: break down the current design into top 10 work items for 2.0 and create bugs.

[edit] JSF Graphical Editor

Development contacts: Jean Choi and Craig Salter

Status: Under investigation

This item focuses on the JSF graphical editor that will be contributed in WTP 2.0. The importance of this item is to ensure this new editor fits with the existing Eclipse and WTP editors.

[edit] Validation Frameworks Preferences Page

Development contact: Chuck Bridgham

Status: Under investigation

This item focuses on the validation framework preference page. Specific difficulties that have encountered include enabling and disabling different types (manual, build) validation and representation of advanced validator properties. The design of this page is also currently not consistent with that of the Eclipse preference pages due to these advanced property requirements.

Current working suggestions: - Properties page per project - Should be able to define preference validation files per artifact. - Across resource types and the main validation page

[edit] Facet wizard UI work

Development contact: Konstantin Komissarchik

Status: Under investigation

The facet wizard is currently awkward to use in that it's use may require an end user to navigate backwards in the wizard. The facet wizard also contains inconsistent UI use for constraints and should be easier for new users to understand.

[edit] WebServices wizard
