Description _ sandipchitale 2005-09-06 18:00:27 UTC
There should be a single view (tabular or tree table (based on category)) to 
view the information about modules in the selected platform. The 
crossreference should show:

Module Name
Module Category (could be used to build the tree column in tree table)
Module Code base name
Module Spec version
Module Impl version
Public Packages
Dependencies ( with ability to jump to them when available)

This could be easily achieved by modifying the list in the Modules tab of the 
NetBeans Platform Manager to a table or a tree table.

I think this info should also be available in the Module Manager to look at 
*this* IDE or Platform instance. Modify the tree to a tree table. This tree 
table could be shared between the two manager.

Similarly there should be a way to output this info in HTML or XML format for 

See this for the basic idea behind the RFE.

This will help module developers.
