I am planning to do phase 2 and phase 3 this weekend and will send
another email when it is completed and checked in. Then Tran will need
to update the build and release. At a later date we will archive the old
projects in CVS.
The following plug-in renames and moves will occurs. Corresponding
package renames will also be completed.
I see that the jpa-diagram-editor component has been moved to Dali.
Since these are not yet updated to compile against HEAD Dali code, I
will not be updating them as part of this work. Let me know if this work
is coming soon and we can possibly post-pone this rename. Though at this
point I think the rename will involve less migration work than what you
already have to do. And let us know if you have questions about that
o.e.jpt.utility -> o.e.jpt.common.utility - rename and move to common
o.e.jpt.utility.tests -> o.e.jpt.common.utility.tests rename and move to
o.e.jpt.core -> o.e.jpt.jpa.core
o.e.jpt.db -> o.e.jpt.jpa.db
o.e.jpt.db.ui -> o.e.jpt.jpa.db.ui
o.e.jpt.eclipselink.core -> o.e.jpt.jpa.eclipselink.core
o.e.jpt.eclipselink.core.ddlgen -> o.e.jpt.jpa.eclipselink.core.ddlgen
o.e.jpt.eclipselink.ui -> o.e.jpt.jpa.eclipselink.ui
o.e.jpt.gen -> o.e.jpt.jpa.gen

o.e.jpt.ui.tests -> o.e.jpt.jpa.ui.tests
The jpaPlatforms and jpaPlatformUis extension points will be affected by
this rename. They will now need to be referenced as

1. A new 'common' component will be created in CVS with the following
2. The libraryValidators and resourceLocators extension points will be
moved to org.eclipse.jpt.common.core (these are new in this release)
Committers need to remember that now we have JptCommonCoreTests to run
on top of JptCoreTests and JptEclipseLinkCoreTests.
Phase 2 will involve renaming org.eclipse.jpt.utility(and tests)
plug-in and packages to org.eclipse.jpt.common.utility (and tests) and
moving to common component. I will do this once we get the build
working for the phase 1 changes.
Phase 3 will involve renaming the org.eclipse.jpt.core.* plug-ins and
packages. Another email will be sent detailing those changes prior to

The Dali team is planning a number of plugin and package name changes
as part of a restructuring to properly accommodate the introduction
of the JAXB component into the Dali code base for Indigo.
Background: There are some good opportunities for code reuse between
the existing JPA and new JAXB component, and as a result we are
creating a Common component to contain the common code between these
2 components. As a result, the existing JPA core plugin
(o.e.jpt.core) will have a new dependency on the Common core plugin
Problem: As you might have noticed, this leaves the JPA core code
with a misleading name of (org.eclipse.jpt.core), including
misleading names for all of the JPA core packages
(org.eclipse.jpt.core.*). This could lead to code and dependency
degradation in the future, not to mention confusion down the road for
committers and clients
Solution: We plan to refactor these names to represent the actual
functional area of the plugin, which is JPA. As a result, the new
plugin name for o.e.jpt.core would become o.e.jpt.jpa.core, and the
contained packages would become o.e.jpt.jpa.core.*. The o.e.jpt.ui
code would similarly move to o.e.jpt.jpa.ui.
Changing the plugin and root package name of o.e.jpt.core and
o.e.jpt.ui will be a breaking change that will impact Dali clients,
and as a result the major plugin version for jpt.core and jpt.ui will
be moving from 2.3 to 3.0 in the renamed plugins. Project metadata
will not be changing, so project compatibility shouldn't be an issue.
Let us know if you have any questions or concerns about this upcoming
change. A forthcoming email will describe the exact changes to
assist with migration when you are ready to move to the 3.0 code base.
