Task Attributes

RepositoryTaskAttribute {
 boolean isModified()
 boolean hasIncomingChanges()
 void write(IMemento)
 void read(IMemento)

Mylar Task Model

Make this model explicit and define it in terms of Java classes. This could be separate from the offline storage so connectors without a TaskDataHandler could provide attachment support.

RepositoryTaskData {
 boolean isNew
 String description
 String summary
 String newComment
 String[] cc
 String[] addCC
 String[] removeCC
RepositoryTaskComment {
 String author
 Date created
RepositoryTaskAttachment {
 String filename
 String description
RepositoryTaskOperation {


Connectors provide a factory for UI representation of attributes:

AbstractConnectorUi {
 abstract ITaskUiFactory getTaskUiFactory()
ITaskUiFactory {
 String getLabel(RepositoryTaskAttribute attr)
 Control createEditor(RepositoryTaskAttribute attr, Composite parent)
 String getToolTip(RepositoryTaskAttribute attr)

Mylar provides default implementations to create an editor for an attribute:

MylarEditorFactory {
 Control createComboEditor(RepositoryTaskAttribute attr, Composite parent, String[] options);
