We got a code contribution from Jeff Mesnil which have been doing
eclipse-jmx is something Rob Stryker wanted to get in for a while to
improve the jmx integration we do in the AS module.
We talked with Jeff about how to best get eclipse-jmx into JBoss tools and
agreed on moving it to jboss tools svn
so we can take good care of it together with Jeff which is now also a
committer on JBoss Tools.
There are some changes in TLDs in RichFaces 3.2.2 but the version of it
is still 3.2.1
So it painful for JBoss Tools team to provide proper support of both
versions (3.2.1 and 3.2.2) in Code Assist for Facelets.
We are going to refactor our Code Assist and use real TLD but not only
our special XML so it could help us to handle such mismatches
but now it is a real problem. So we have to choose one TLD and use it
for all 3.2.* richfaces libs in JBoss Tools 3.0.0CR1.
Max, should we replace 3.2.1 by 3.2.2 in our KB plug-in for 3.0.0CR1?
