JSR 198 for IDE

JSR 198 is a proposal to create a standard interface for adding extensions to Java Integrated Development Environments (IDEs). This will allow vendors to write an IDE extension once, and have it work on any J2SE-compliant IDE.

I think it is a good move. What do you feel?

Hi Pradeep,
Thanks for the Info. Looks intresting. But till it is done we would have Eclipse 4.0 ready perhaps which would be difficult to beat!!!

I am also a bit suspicious about whether we're ready for a standard. Are the IDE developers ready to agree on the best plugin architecture, the details of the API, etc.
I would appreciate hearing the opinions of some plugin developers out there -- are there (too) significant differences in the plugin integration approaches taken by leading IDEs such as Eclipse, NetBeans, JBuilder, IDEA, JEdit, etc.?

Sorry for pushing up the thread.
Joe, what do you feel about the JSR?

Personally, I doubt that the JSR will win acceptance. In fact, I think it's going to be a very messy political battle, and unlikely to see any resolution in the near term. Because Eclipse has its own developer community, and since it uses its own GUI (SWT), I doubt seriously that they'll ever be part of the Sun/Intellij/Oracle group.
But once again, this whole discussion can quickly devolve into a religious debate, and I don't want to get into debating one vs. the other. I'll simply say that Eclipse's plug-in architecture is a pretty good one and is awfully successful, as is clear from the sheer number of plug-ins available. It will be interesting to see if JSR 198 can come to anything as nice in a reasonable time frame, or if it will get bogged down in inter-company bickering.
Joe
