Project Plan For datatools.incubator, version 1.7
"Data Tools" is a vast domain, yet there are a fairly small number of foundational requirements when developing with or managing data-centric systems. A developer is interested in an environment that is easy to configure, one in which the challenges of application development are due to the problem domain, not the complexity of the tools employed. Data management, whether by a developer working on an application, or an administrator maintaining or monitoring a production system, should also provide a consistent, highly usable environment that works well with associated technologies.
The Data Tools Platform (DTP) project provides a set of frameworks and basic tools to enable data-centric development in a variety of data types, including databases (via JDBC) and ODA data sources (for BIRT reporting). The frameworks are open to allow common interfaces (both API and user interface) across different types of data.
DTP is broken into a number of sub-projects. This project plan focuses on the Incubator project, which hosts new development in areas that are relevant to the other
The DTP project delivers a set of components to ease connecting to and working with data sources. Primarily DTP focuses on database (SQL development) work and ODA data sources for BIRT reporting.

The goal of this release is to be backward compatible back to DTP 1.6.
The Incutabor sub-project will work on the following themes and priority for the DTP Galileo release.
(Note that "committed" items have the "plan" keyword in the BZ entry. "Proposed" items do not.)
We will focus on the following:
- Considering promotion of the Ecore-ODA project into Enablement
