Reviews run for a minimum of one week. The outcome of the review is decided on this date. This is the last day to make comments or ask questions about this review.
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).
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).
No Security issues.
All currently present project, infrastructure and user documentation has been improved. You can find us on YouTube with tutorials.
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
The XML Data type integration is deprecated and will not be provided in the Eclipse modeler in future releases. You can use the External Reference structured
data type instead, which is equivalent to the XML Data type, with the difference that it supports XSD schema exclusively (no DTD specification). Please refer to
section Using External XSD Types of chapter Defining Structured Types for details.
