If you want to do a Proof of Concept showing how we can use the Errai code generation, I'd gladly consider it.

However, the decision to wrap the Eclipse API comes with several benefits, not the least of which is basically free upgrades as the Java language specification continues to evolve :)

Hi everyone,

Today at the meeting I asked whether we could use the Errai code generation APIs and not the ones from Eclipse. The reason for that was not that I am an Eclipse API hater (which I am ;-)), but because I hope that with Errai we will be able to solve problems more easily (it's a JBoss project and you know each other ;-)). By problems that we may need to be solved, I mean something like the discussion in this thread: http://lists.jboss.org/pipermail/forge-dev/2011-December/001370.html

Lincoln mentioned on the meeting that the purpose of the Errai API is different. However, I didn't get it. Why can't we use it instead of JDT?

BTW, the JavaClassTest keeps failing on my Windows machine and Forge produces awfully formatted entities on this OS. :-(
