What does this comment in OpenMappingAction mean ?
@deprecated - Can't shine selected element in the Editor.
* Use OpenMappingAction instead of this.
Why are both there if one is deprecated ?
p.s. why isn't all that logic in there not in a less ui dependent code? Must be hard to test properly or?
Another one from koen:
I know we have been talking about the problem of a lot of us using the
same libraries (e.g. Dom4j) in our plugins and including the libs
straight in the plugin. It was mentioned to wrap these libs in a plugin
of their own and making our plugins dependent on these. Is there already
something wrt this?
I am facing this issue now and I have wrapped Dom4j in a plugin but
maybe there should be (or there is already) a central repository for
tools like these.
(for some reason koen gets emails but cant send to the list...working on that, but in the meantime here is his mail)
Do we have a policy regarding exporting dependencies of a plugin to
possible extenders of this plugin? Or do we expect extenders to include
the dependencies themselves in their extensions?
plugin A depends on:
plugin B depends on
plugin C depends on
The way this can be tackled AFAIK is
- including the dependencies of B and C in extenso in the manifest file
- exporting the dependencies of plugin A on plugin 1 and plugin 3 and
only including a dependency on plugin A in plugin B and plugin C
Do we have a preferred way?
