Description _ rkubacki 2005-02-22 12:19:09 UTC
Current UI is really unfriendly and should be

When attaching to a core file using SA connector
the IDE should offer FileChooser to help user to
navigate to a coredump file. Similarly there
should be a browse button to help find where is
the executable. These executable should already be
preset to java executable of running IDE or from
default platform.

When attaching to a running process we can try to
get list of running processes from output of jps
[-l] command to make it easier.

What's so difficult with RFE? Is there anything controversial? Can't we
implement at least part of it?

The current UI is quite stupid and it is easy to fix it.

Nothing controversial, and probably easy to implement. But we have a lot of
issues to solve... therefore we're conservative.
"future" TM means that it can go into 4.2 after we have all more important
issues scheduled for 4.2 resolved.
