This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm quite sure many have stumbled into finding a decent, free XML and JSP editor. I know MyEclipseIDE is almost free (around $30) but that's still an obstacle. Also, the online documentation for developing plugins has still room for improvement. On the other hand, I've only developed one plugin to get a superficial understanding of the inside, so my exposure is still limited...
I'm just wondering how these plugins are being tested. I downloaded one couple days ago and had to delete it because it was throwing a lot of errors. Is there some test suite that plugins have to conform with?

A C# plug-in for Eclipse ? I believe there is one but folks seemed to think it was very rocky. Improve C# plug-in for Eclipse Does C# use Patterns the same way that Java does ? regards [ November 12, 2003: Message edited by: HS Thomas ]

Yep, I had the Improve C# plugin in my Eclipse until yesterday and it's nothing compared to VS.NET (probably also with Borland C# Builder and SharpDevelop).

Yes. Do a quick search at Amazon.com for "C#" and "patterns"...

I'll check that one out. The most important aspect to me is to have a built in sample phone to run it on. Since Siptech's plugin hooks into the wireless toolkit, it has that. Unfortunately, when you create the project, it creates a MIDlet that doesn't appear in Eclipse and can't be imported since it is the source directory. I haven't had a chance to really look at the problem though to find a solution.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
