Well it looks like you guys made the right choice...

Two and a half years, and they manage to come up with PlaySkool's "My First IDE Integration API". I defy anyone to describe a remotely interesting plugin that could be built on this chassis.

On the plus side, they do have JavaDoc.

Hello Dave,

Two and a half years, and they manage to come up with PlaySkool's "My
First IDE Integration API". I defy anyone to describe a remotely
interesting plugin that could be built on this chassis.


As i know, JetBrains no supported this JSR... And also, no one IDE now implement
this, imho.

After 2 minutes browsing of the source that can be downloaded there, I don't see anything obviously wrong with it. Save me some time and tell what's wrong with it. Please?

Apache .... who don't do IDEs
Borland .... who are moving towards eclipse?
IBM .... who is eclipse
BEA .... who uses eclipse don't they?
JBoss .... who base there "IDE" on eclipse...

Do I get a feel this JSR is more "convert everyone to Eclipse and claim
a global API standard"?

Not so much wrong, as dreadfully incomplete. I'm not sure what the point of an IDE integration layer is if it lacks VCS hooks, editor selection access, compilation hooks, and so much more. What they did do they did at least reasonbly correctly, but they left out so much that there's just not much capacity for actual integration if you wish to just use the integration API.
