More reviews on June 24th: Pave, ATF, Jetty, and eRCP

On June 24th, we have several project review scheduled. First, we have a creation review for the Pave project. We have a continuation review for the Ajax Toolkit Framework (ATF) project, a graduation/release review for the Jetty Project, and a release review for the eRCP project.

Currently, in Eclipse, there is a set of atomic operations intended to help users for performing variety of tasks. It is a usual case that several of these operations need to be called in a sequence to achieve a result on a higher level of complexity. It is very often that the same sequences of operations are executed frequently to achieve a family of complex tasks. It would be an effective time-saver if these sequences are automated. Such automation could also provide an error proof path for users to perform these tasks and be sure that at the end they will have results that follow the established conventions. The Pave project, being created under the Web Tools top-level, endeavors to provide this automation. Please review the creation docuware; you can pose questions and other discussion about the Pave project on the eclipse.pave newsgroup.

The AJAX Toolkit Framework (ATF) provides and extensible framework and exemplary tools for building IDEs for the many different AJAX runtime offerings (Dojo, Zimbra, Rico, etc) in the market. Tools built upon these frameworks will initially include: enhanced JavaScript editing features such as edit-time syntax checking; an embedded Mozilla web browser; an embedded DOM browser; and an embedded JavaScript debugger. Please review the review docuware; you can pose questions and other discussion about the ATF project on the eclipse.webtools.atf newsgroup.

Jetty provides an HTTP server, HTTP client, and javax.servlet container. These components are open source and available for commercial use and distribution. Please review the review docuware; you can pose questions and other discussion about the Jetty project on the jetty-dev mailing list.

The intent of this project is to extend the Eclipse Rich Client Platform (RCP) to embedded devices. eRCP is largely a set of components which are subsets of RCP components. It basically enables the same application model used on desktop machines to be used on devices. If you’re interested in this project, please take the time to read the review documentation. If you have questions about the review, please send them to the ercp-dev mailing list. General questions and discussion about eRCP occurs in the eRCP newsgroup.

    Hi Wayne,
    Thanks for the reviews and I just confused where I can follow the discussions about eRCP, in eclipse.dsdp.ercp or in eclipse.ercp?

    @Arunagiri You’re right: that is confusing. I’ll bet that they’re trying really hard to switch the newsgroup (as they’ve moved out of dsdp and into rt), but are having some issues with momentum… The docuware suggests eclipse.dsdp.ercp.
