Subject RE: HiveMind / Eclipse
Date Sun, 21 Sep 2003 21:57:07 GMT
Eclipse obviously has better tool support ... it has the PDE.
Eclipse doesn't include the <rules> concept, the ability to convert contributed XML
directly into
useable Java objects.  In Eclipse, your plugin gets, effectively, a light-weight DOM to walk;
HiveMind you get an array of objects.
Biggest difference is that HiveMind includes a services model; Eclipse has nothing like this
its interesting approach to classloading and plugin activation.
Participation: subscribe to the commons dev mailing list, post with "[HIveMind]" in the list.
HiveMind is reorganizing into three sub-projects: framework contains the core framework; library
contains standard (well understood, well tested, well documented, generally useful) services.
contrib will be created soon, it's a kind of sandbox for new stuff.

Hello Howard, 
   I have passed this evening of Sunday looking around your project and I only write to you
congratulate you...   If you decide to build a community, you have a volunteer... in next
days I'll
study it in more depth for see the application in one project I'm working (a plugin based
with integration with WebStart)
   Only one question, what's the difference of your approximation with the eclipse framework
   Nothing more, good work, and sorry for my English... (I'm from Spain)...
   See you...
