This is great guys, really makes DSC development and especially generating the component.xml a lot easier. Just some things I noticed after quickly playing with it for a few minutes:
Nice to haves:
That's it for my first impressions so far. In the end I think this is a fantastic step forward. Thanks!
Thanks for the feedback.
* The tool already puts the adobe-livecycle-client.jar in the classpath. No need for you to put it there.
* After you created your project, the component editor allows you to add further services and operations if you click on the Add buttons in the Services and Operations Tab. The limitation is that the tool will not generate those service classes from the component editor.
* The tool does allow you to add Titles in the component editor's Services and Operations tab.
* The Services and Operations tab allows you to set "Auto Deploy" and "Orchestratable" options.
* The AdobeLogger is in the adobe-livecycle-client.jar and hence public.
Thanks.. after chatting with Gary a bit, it looks like when I installed the tool I was missing some dependencies, so I think there's some functinality there that I didn't see. For example, I have no idea what this component editor you're mention is I'll have to go in and fix it up tomorrow.
For AdobeLogger, it's a class in a publically available jar file, but it is not publically documented.
Looks like something has gone wrong with your installation or you don't have all the required plugins. Can you check the steps you took against what has been documented to make sure you followed each step? Also, there is a ready eclipse_setup.zip file that you can download and just install the component development tool into it that should by-pass the issues you are facing now. Let me know if you need help.
Check out this link : http://labs-staging.macromedia.com/technologies/lcwcdtool/configure.ht ml for an already setup eclipse.
Also, Chris, we are preparing a new drop that will only need GEF and EMF. It looses the dependency on Jetty and WTP and makes the install much easier. Please watch out for the announcement on this Foum when it is ready to download.
So the one thing I know the one thing on that page I didn't do was install WTP, since Gary wanted me to test it without to see if WTP was really needed. I'll try installing that and then install the tool again. I'm downloading the sample eclipse too to take a look, but in the end I'd need it to work in my normal eclipse env.
