Object Teams is on the Train to Indigo

with 2 comments

Object Teams made the next step for even better integration in Eclipse: starting with today’s Indigo Milestone 3 we’re aboard! No further fiddling with URLs of update sites, simply select the Indigo site…

… and directly install the OTDT from there.

For those who haven’t tried Object Teams before, here are steps 1, 2 & 3:

  1. Walk through the Quick Start
  2. Read the basic concepts in our OT/J Primer
  3. Play with more Examples or browse some Object Teams Patterns


The main concern of this milestone release was catching up with the Indigo train, so the list of bugs fixed is shorter than usual. But, hey, by upgrading to Eclipse SDK 3.7M3, the OTDT supports also some new JDT coolness, like, e.g., improved static analysis (I happen to have a finger in this pie, too 🙂 ).


With each new release it is good to test compatibility with older software. So I loaded my previous experiment (“project medal”) into the new milestone. Much as I expected: that little adaptation of the JDT still works as intended also in the new version, which wasn’t possible with the original implementation. This again shows: in-place patching can never give you, what OT/Equinox excels in: evolvable, modular adaptation.
