Mylyn Web Connector for use with Servoy WS-REST plugin

Postby ROCLASI » Thu Apr 08, 2010 9:16 am

Mylyn is a great plugin for Eclipse which can connect to many project- and issue trackers out there.
Servoy 5.x now has the web-services plugin. It would be great if we could create our own project- and/or issue tracker in Servoy and let mylyn connect to it.
The connector would only have to support the Mylyn features, it will be up to us to support what we want in our WS methods.

I added case #284358

As always, if you like this feature request you can leave your vote in this thread :)

+1 for me!

And what would really be nice: a mylyn aware solution explorer that could be filtered by tasks!

I'm not quite following the request here...

You say:

What is stopping you from doing so?

i guess didnt look at the complete api Robert wants to have this, (if this is the setup of mylyn)

1> Mylyn eclipse plugins (ui/core)
2> Mylyn web connector eclipse plugin that implements something of the above
3> Servoy WS servlet
4> Servoy WS Solution


So <1> and <3> we already have, <4> should the servoy developer do.
Then <2> is the missing link. But i think Patrick or maybe Marcel can create such a connector/eclipse plugin just fine :)

:lol:

I said to Robert that I might have a look later, but I think that it should be part of Servoy, really.
<2> as you said already exist in the form of the Mylyn Web Connector (I use it to connect to google-code projects for example), so yes, it might be only a matter of writing the right parameters there, it might be just a matter of finding the time to tweak that.

But as I said above: having a Solution Explorer that would be filtered by Mylyn Tasks is one step above that, and no third party will be able to write that. Will make a case in the support.

robert is as i read his case talking about something else!

Robert wants to make a bug reporting system of his solutions/producsts (or a general one for other customers)

Its not that you have a mylyn integration with our case system.. then you would have another configuration:

1> mylyn eclipse plugin
2> servoy web connector.

done.

and then the servoy web connector does talk to our case system (of course this could be done in the other configuration but thats a way we could implement it)
So this kind of thing is maybe more a result of the case not the actual fix/implementation, because for that, servoy also needs to implement <4>

You can use it for bug reporting, project management, etc.

Exactly.

Usually the vendors of these backends (in this case the Servoy WS servlet) create and support these connectors themselves. Hence my request being directed at Servoy.
Or are you saying that the Servoy WS servlet is just a standards based API and the Mylyn connector could be used for any web services (as long as the business logic on the backend knows what to do with the specific requests).

And as for it being used with Servoy's case system. I don't see it as having a different config. In both instances you use the same connector and need to create the 4 WS methods to handle the requests in your solution. That's all.

servoy itself doesnt have anything to do with MyLyn
Servoy isnt jira or bugzilla (where those connectors exists from)

Servoy just have a web services api. Thats it very specific functionality (for very generic things)

Does for example Axis or XFire which are webservices frameworks (just like our ws-rest plugin) has mylyn connectors? Dont think so.
