Subject RE: [ANTidote] Introspection implemented and updated ToDo's
Date Tue, 28 Jan 2003 20:42:54 GMT

I have completed the attribute-editors for the simple types (String,
Integer, Boolean, File).  They have been implemented as
TableCellEditors.  The bug is 16510 and has the source and a diff file
attached as a zip. 

I was wondering about you mean by reference types and list/custom
types.  I guess I need to understand them before I can draw up a
solution for them.

Thanx :).

After having thought about Eriks proposal I have to agree, but in the
step I just want to be minimumly as good as the NetBeans Integration

Basic things are already done (there is a class map in the ACSFactory
can use!

Would be really nice and I'd be grateful!

Yes, I kind of really like the TableStyle, because it's most flexible
fast - so the editors should be somehow TableCellEditors...!

Regarding WebStart:

I did not really expect, that this could become a problem... We, at
made the best experiences with signed Applications, even with a simple
keytool signiture... Have you tried?

I see the WebStart-Vesion as somkind of sneak-peak and demo purpose
so I to not see a big Problem if the classpath is not changable during
runtime - what do you think?
