API Certification: 

The project leadership certifies that the APIs in this release are "Eclipse Quality".

Architectural Issues: 

Project Stardust has a modular architecture strongly based on established Java technology standards and leveraging standard components wherever feasible (see the corresponding section of Graduation Review documentation for more information).

Stardust offers many hooks to extend and customize functionality by implementing Service Provider Interfaces (SPIs). See[1] , [2] and the examples given in [3].

Eclipse modeling functionality is heavily leveraging functionality provided by other eclipse projects, most notably EMF, GEF, WTP, JST, JDT. Public APIs were used where possible. All residual usage of internal interfaces is documented in Bugzilla and will be reviewed in later releases (see references in Bug 402286).


Security Issues: 

No Security issues.

Non-Code Aspects: 

All currently present project, infrastructure and user documentation has been improved. You can find us on YouTube with tutorials.

Usability Details: 
  • All eclipse modeler UI components were designed and implemented in the spirit of the Eclipse User Interface Guidelines

  • Usage of Stardust eclipse modeling functionality is facilitated by Cheat Sheets.

  • Browser portal and modeler functionality user interface is following similar principles but had to be adapted in some respects due to the technical requirements of html 5 components
