Description Mark Dey 2006-12-01 20:41:51 UTC
Creator 2 includes a "Server Navigator" top component that presents a tree
structure of commonly used services, such as databases, ejbs, and web services.
The purposes of this "palette" of services is to allow visual D&D binding of
these services to components in the visual web designer.

The Services Palette needs to be made available in NetBeans 6 with the goal of
making this palette a common UI feature for databinding in other editor contexts
(such as Matisse).

I'm marking this issue complete since the specs for the services functionality
(producer and consumer interfaces) are done. For NB 6, the UI for the Services
tab will be implemented by re-purposing and renaming the existing Runtime tab to
include D&D services.
