> I want to open a discussion about the JBoss Tools integration. The baseline of this integration is the Forge Console currently available in the JBoss Tools SVN repository. Evidently a whole bunch of improvements and additional features need to be implemented. I would be good if all the ideas around this could be gathered in this issue and result in new tasks.
> I'll start off myself by giving a list of functionality that I think should be included.
> (1) normally, pressing the tab character should result in Forge suggesting the list of possible commands; this is not working currently
> (2) the usual colors you get when running Forge from the command line result in garbled output in the Eclipse Forge console; we need to find a way of getting this functionality up and running in Eclipse
> (3) after performing each Forge command, appropriate actions need to be performed and feedback needs to be given to the user; this feedback will be highly dependent on the particular command; 
>   (a) e.g. after creating a project the project should be imported in the workspace
>   (b) e.g. after creating an entity, the created containing folder needs to be refreshed and the file opened
>   (c) e.g. after creating a field, the field needs to be selected in the open editor
> (4) imo, it doesn't make sense to perform Forge commands outside the Eclipse workspace; therefore, i think it should be made impossible to cd out of the workspace folder; similarly, a pwd command should probably be rooted in the workspace root.
> (5) at this time the Forge runtime is embedded in the plugin; while it is not necessarily a bad idea to continue to ship a runtime in an Eclipse plugin, it's probably wise to offer the users a way to add additional runtimes by means of a preference page and evidently provide a way to select the default Forge runtime; this is similar to the way you select a default JVM for an Eclipse workspace.
> (6) use a preference page to add Forge plugin repositories
> (7) maintain the command history; currently the upward arrow just moves the cursor upward in the console viewer.
