Describe editor architecture by answering NetBeans
Arch Questions as described at
Comment 1 Jaroslav Tulach 2003-01-27 16:27:45 UTC
If you go to openide/arch directory, there is a build.xml prepared for you. If
you invoke "ant <nameofyourapi>" a arch-openide-yourapi.xml file should be
generated and you can start answer the questions there. When you are ready, run
the ant script once more -> html page is generated (you have to change
questionsverion to the right value). After that check the .xml into CVS. You can
delete .html

Comment 3 Jaroslav Tulach 2003-02-13 14:25:38 UTC
I have few comments to version 1.5:

1. please use <api> tag to define imported and exported APIs also you
probably mean org.openide.util and not org.netbeans.util
2. compat-standard: I thought that everything is based on swing text
package with extensions (NbDocument), I suggest to mention that
3. could you link to javadoc of classes that you refer to in the document?
4. exec-component - I guess the module communicates with Mila's editor
by setting a document property to DataObject or something like that,
please specify that, use <property> tag for that and other properties
together with stability cathegory
5. exec-reflection - ok....but does it from a deprecated class (which
everybody still uses ;-)
6. Clipboard questions: There used to be some code to bridge between
editor copy/cut/paste and system copy/cut/paste, maybe it is gone, I
am mentioning that just to be sure

Reopening for David, to evaluate my comments.
