  • Branding technically done, links for tutorial missing
  • [New & Noteworthy]: should focus on basic features, not on newest things of 0.6; TODO: Florian

  • Conform to normal "N&N" documents
  • Have a look at JDT for an example.

What to include in new tutorial

  • Put tutorial to Wiki page in different parts -> TODO Chris
  • The existing tutorial is mainly an introduction to JWT and combination with AgilPro
  • Things are missing in the current tutorial, it's only focused on one integrator (AgilPro)
  • A more general document (on the wiki) is necessary to show that it can also be used with other things
  • Aspects, views, etc. should be included
  • Different examples for different sub-pages (browser for AgilPro, Amazon-example for Scarbo, etc.), but order should be pre-given for some tutorial pages (so people can understand what depends on what)

Developments in Views-Branch

  • Chris reported on the development of the views-branch:
  • Nearly all bugs on branch fixed now
  • Major parts should be working right now
  • Metamodel has been taken out of Workflow Editor
  • One plugin which includes model and edit code (incl. reference to UI)
  • Dependency on conf-plugins by metamodel-plugin
  • Second metamodel in WE that extends the original metamodel and adds layout data, reference and referenceEdges, etc.
  • Multiple view data on a metamodel-element, necessary for swimlanes in order to fulfil the requirement of Bull and JBoss
  • Some layout mechanisms included, although not the best for workflows, taken from GEF Zest
  • several bug fixes included
  • using new templates from the HEAD revision, works fine, concerning strings somehow strange since it doesn't use!?
  • views should have maybe an EAnnotation for storing also additional data for advanced things
  • maybe future feature request: automatic synchronization to simulate the old behavior for some cases
  • Migration of other plugins to the branch, then final migration of everything to the HEAD
  • thereby: update old plugins
  • view editor needs adjustments then, too
  • new converter needs to be adapted and finalized, too.
