Project Plan For Eclipse Presentation Modeling Framework, version 1.0
Eclipse Presentation Modeling Framework project is a modeling solution and code generation facility to build enterprise data presentation application. It provides the basic functional concepts of user interaction in a PIM level UI modeling language. This framework is highly extensible and can be integrated with any UI technology such as SWT/Jface, e4, JSF, XUL, Swing, GWT, Ajax, Silverlight or others. The final goal is to provide a rich-feature, intrusive, high extensible UI MDA framework.
The release deliverables are: Source code release for Eclipse Presentation Modeling Framework, available as versions tagged "R1_0_0" in the eclipse.org CVS repository. Presentation Modeling Framework Project runtime binary distributions (downloadable). Presentation Modeling Framework Project runtime binary features on eclipse.org update site (install via Eclipse update manager).
As PMF is a new project and it will depend on numerous other projects, it will deliver its milestones within one week of the Eclipse Platform since the RC1. Afterwards it is anticipated that PMF will synchronize its milestones with the Helios milestone schedule.
PMF will not produce maintenance releases with the Galileo SR releases.
In order to remain current, each release of an Eclipse project targets reasonably current versions of underlying operating environments and other Eclipse projects on which it depends. Most of Eclipse is "pure" Java code and has no direct dependence on the underlying operating system. The chief dependence is on the Eclipse Platform, and on the Java 2 Platform that runs it. The Presentation Modeling Framework Project version 1.0 release depends on the following: Java 2 Platform, version 1.4.2 Eclipse Platform 3.6 Windows 2000/XP/Windows7 Linux/GTK MAC OS Carbon/ The 1.0 release of Presentation Modeling Framework Project is designed to run on any configuration supporting the above components. Presentation Modeling Framework Project 1.0 will be tested and validated on the following reference platforms: Eclipse Reference Platforms Operating system Processor architecture Window system Java 2 Platform SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 10 x86-32 GTK Sun Java 2 Standard Edition 5.0 Update 4 for Linux x86 Microsoft Windows Vista/7 Intel x86 Win32 Sun Java 2 Standard Edition 5.0 Update 4 for Microsoft Windows
The PMF project will be developed by providing English strings in its default bundles and be localized to a subset of those locals offered by the Platform. This support will be respected in the final release 1.0.
There is no compatibility issue.
