View Full Version : Eclipse plugin
27-08-05, 06:48 AM
it would be EXTREMELY useful to have a eclipse plugin [view/perspective] that could integrate with a dotproject installation. to be able to login, view/create tasks/projects.
what do people think of this?

Sounds good :) every now and then I use eclipse as my editor

IF you were to entertain this idea.... what would you say would be the best interface? like to go as far as making a soap/xml-rpc api for interfacing, or would it best to just connect straight to the database?
i might create some prototypes at least to accomplish my needs -- just give me a direction/possible scenerio. although i've never programmed for eclipse, but i'm sure it can't be too tough.

We have a dotProject Eclipse plug-in! Its still in development, but we have released a usable version of the plug-in. We are a development group in Colombia, so the software documentation and user reference are in spanish. You can download the plug-in at our website:
Select the option Qualdev Changeset -> Descargas and you will find the download link for the plug-in and the user reference.
This plug-in works with Eclipse 3.2.x and for dotProject 2.0.x.

If possible, can you also release the source so people can translate it into their own languages and update it as versions change? Thank you for your efforts and for sharing this in the first place!

I'm a crazy Eclipse monkey... what sort of functionality does this module offer?
03-04-07, 05:08 PM
it lets you see all projects and tasks for each project for a specific company and record time via tasklogs for each task.
The module actually is fantastic. I really like the UI for it and I think it will be very useful for many people
It taps directly in the database to do things.

We will soon be posting the plug-in in Source Forge so that you can download the both the plug-in and the source code. Next week we will post the source code in our website. Soon we will also have a support email so that you can write to us your questions. Thankyou.

Excellent, thanks. I assume that in order to use it, you have to add a file to your dotproject install?

I`m not sure I understand the question. żAdd a file to the dotProject install? The plug-in simply connects to the database of dotProject, and works directly with it. It never uses the dotProject (web app) files. So the only data you need to have in order to use it is the hostname, database name, database username, database password and company id (usually its 1). Were are still working on a way to design a security module that can hide the usage of the database user and password and the use of the user's username and his password. Its probable that by May 20th 2007 we will be releasing a new version 2.1 that adds other new functionality like editing and deleting logs; these were not implemented for 2.0.

Excellent, but you may run into a few issues:
* Some users may run into problems where their hosting company does not allow direct database access, but I think you're going in a great direction.
* The enforcement of security. By accessing the database directly, it appears that you are bypassing the entire permissions system. While there's not a better way to do it at the moment, it may be a problem for some users.
That being said, I've had a REST specification on the drawing board since last fall. If you have insight and/or can describe the exact Use Cases your module performs, I'd love to involve you in the specification process.

Our research and development team has created a website for english speaking users that would like to learn more about our research and development projects. We have recently launched a new version of the dotProject Eclipse Plugin.
We have also opened a support email where users can send their comments and questions. firstname.lastname@example.org

can it work offline?
any plan on when it will be not bypassing dp permission system? (if you have lot of users with different roles it is really hard to customize permission in both dp & mysql)

It appears I'm coming in a bit late to the conversation, but ideally, an Eclipse plugin would come in the form of a Mylyn extension. See:
...for existing repository connectors. This extension framework provides the ability to perform queries and create tasks on remote repositories, which is exactly what one would want from dotProject integration in Eclipse, if I'm not mistaken, and gets around the pesky "direct database" troubles and such. Just sayin'.

mind2find, you got an excellent point there. I would also appreciate a Mylyn connector for dotProject. Has anyone thought deeper into this option and can provide some insight on possible issues in developing such a piece of code?
