Shale Clay Plugin for Eclipse Intellectual Property (IP) Clearance Status


The Shale Clay Plugin for the Eclipse IDE is a visual editor targeted at creating and maintaining Shale Clay component meta-data. The Shale Clay XML component meta-data is used to create JavaSever Faces (JSF) managed views. The plugin supports auto-detection of Clay component definitions in an Eclipse workspace. It allows XML component definitions to be extended through drag-and-drop from a component palette. It also provides auto-completion of managed bean names and methods. The tool supports both visual and text modes.

The plugin is a significant contribution donated by Ryan Wynn and can be found attached to the SHALE-444 JIRA ticket. The codebase consists of a single Eclipse plugin project that has dependencies with several Apache Commons libraries besides the shale-core and shale-clay libraries.

date item
2007-07-11 Check and make sure that the papers that transfer rights to the ASF been received. It is only necessary to transfer rights for the package, the core code, and any new code produced by the project. (ICLA on file from Ryan Wynn.)
2007-07-11 Check and make sure that the files that have been donated have been updated to reflect the new ASF copyright.

Identify name recorded for software grant: N/A - single contributor with ICLA on file.
