Subject Re: [Proposal] EIK (Eclipse Integration for Karaf) as a new Karaf sub-project
Date Thu, 01 Sep 2011 04:32:43 GMT
I have used EIK briefly and really very useful and time saving during 
development. Eclipse Virgo provides the similar WTP runtime and having 
EIK for Karaf will help developer who are used to developing Eclipse WTP.
