Just re-read the Genuitec “Trends in Technology” article.
Any plans by Eclipse, MyEclipse or others to provide a stripped-down Eclipse framework that implements Genuitec’s wishlist of changes (i.e., decoupling and conversion of JFace to plugin, refactoring of org.eclipse.ui to move hard-coded menus and menu items into ActionSet’s, refactoring of Workbench to allow “empty” application)?
Thanks!! We’re looking at the possibility of rewriting a VB6 desktop app that is constantly being kludged to work with other tools. I’m trying to keep the Eclipse Application Framework visible as an alternative to building our own in .NET. The Eclipse framework is already there, it has a good set of rules for adding functionality (i.e., plugins), it has it’s own built-in upgrade capability — why not take advantage of it.
