No GLUE in 698???

Hi there,

Just curious: why was the GLUE integration removed from build 698?

Should I stick with 697 if I want to use it or will it be included again in
one of the future IDEA builds(or perhaps another web services integration)?

Thx,
Andrei

Andrei,

You may use GLUE as a separate tool as much as you wish. Its console has
about everything we used to have in IDEA.
GLUE will not be provided as a part of IDEA anymore. Regarding other web
services integrations, we don't have any fixed plans on that to the moment.

I'd argue that having the ability to easily generate client side code to call a web service, which is what the glue plug-in offered, is a wonderful feature, and I, for one, am sad to see it go away. Being able to point at a WSDL url and say, "generate some client-side classes so I can call that thing" makes web services sooo much easier to use.

So, really, why did you drop support for GLUE?

Dan,

I cannot disagree that having this small feature really makes it easier to
create proxies for calling web services. However, please also consider that
the two products are made by different companies, with different release
cycles, compatibility issues and licensing policies. The integration (a
small plugin) can easily be provided by the GLUE makers if they choose to.
They, better than anyone else may bundle different versions of the plugin
with different editions and versions of GLUE so each of them works correctly
in IDEA. If you are really interested in having a GLUE plugin for IDEA, I
suggest you to contact themindelectric guys.
The previous inclusion of the integration was a test-drive, so to speak, and
I apologize if the decision to drop it caused you and other users any kind
of problems.

Could the current plugin ( that -was- integrated ) be made open source at
all? Then it could become a community driven plugin and installed by
those who wish to use it?

Mark,

Unfortunately, the plugin used to use a few internal APIs, however, we'll
consider publishing its source code at intellij.org.
