Polishin’ New Plug-in Projects

There was a recent blog post about someone complaining (can’t find it atm but sounds like something Eugene would do ;p) that the PDE and JDT new project wizards were too complicated. After the PDE team’s feelings were crushed and the tears subsided, we simplified the wizard. This was done by moving the Execution Environment setting to the second page and removing the confusing Classpath (Bundle-Classpath) option:

If you have any other ideas to simplify things for users, please let the PDE team know by filing a bug.

    Hey, you can’t blame everything on me! πŸ™‚

    BTW, new wizard does look like an improvement. Though it is unclear where did target platform selection and the working set go.

    Also, it may make sense to replace longish “would you like to create rich client application?” and radio buttons with more concise:

    [x] Generate an Rich Client Application

    and perhaps put that under “Plug-in Options” group (maybe also rename it into “Options”).

    Similarly, “this plug-in will make contribution to the UI” can be said as “Generate an UI Plugin”.

    Hope that this does not get reduced to an ‘enter a word’ wizard That asks “Enter the first letter of the word…” πŸ˜‰
