I've spent a brief amount of time adding SwitchYard specific console features into the
Eclipse Servers View. It would be a *huge* help if the models used in the GWT console
could be used in Eclipse.
That said, there is a lot of mileage to be gained by simply being able to use the AutoBean
framework within Eclipse. Does anyone have any experience using AutoBeans in an Eclipse
or OSGi environment? (In SY land, we're slowly moving to a place where our core
management/configuration model API can be used in the tooling as well.)

I certainly think there may be opportunity here from a model
perspective. For example, creating higher level types than
"resource" (e.g. data source), that encapsulate specific resource
types within the server. That said, I'm not sure if there is any
support available for the AutoBean framework in Eclipse (knowing the
console makes heavy use of AutoBean). If there is, that would
certainly simplify adding more detailed capabilities.
The model used in the Eclipse POC is simply a model around the low
level, generic resource API, nothing more. It's simple, complete,
but not very pretty (or usable, in my opinion).
