RE: [equinox-dev] Support for the console in Equinox

As stated before, we have no plans to implement RFC 147 in the framework. Instead we would really like the implementation to be provided from a bundle installed on top of the framework. At this time we have not made any definitive plans to implement RFC 147 in Equinox. But if you are willing to commit resources to such an effort I would support starting an incubator project in equinox to develop this.

If you have incremental improvements to the existing Equinox console then please open bugs and provide patches. Then we can assess the code and decide if they are appropriate to put into the core framework (but as I stated before, the console already is bloating the framework considerably and I don't really want to add any more to that bloat).

RE: [equinox-dev] Support for the console in Equinox




Hi,

First of all, in which release of the framework the implementation of RFC 147 is planned to be included?

We are interested in this being improved, because our support would immediately benefit from those enhancements, until the new implementation is available. Provided that RFC-147 will be shipped next year at earliest, we would have to handle this issue for at least 2 years, before we and our customers get it.

Since we use the telnet access to the console, some small improvements in its usability, as the ones mentioned in the original mail, will be of much help to us. This is certainly only for the period before the new, improved command line interface, defined in RFC 147, is delivered.

We may provide a small patch with some improvements for the telnet to make it more user-friendly in the current and probably the next release, before it is finally substituted by the new implementation.

Regards,

Lazar Kirchev

Re: [equinox-dev] Support for the console in Equinox

We have had a long time desire to remove the console from the framework. It adds a bit of bulk and is not needed in many scenarios. As such we are not doing much to enhance the console at this time. When an implementation becomes available for RFC 147 we would prefer this to be a separate bundle. Once that is done the trick is to figure out how to support the old -console option in Equinox ;-)

If you are interested in implementing RFC 147 in Equinox perhaps we should start an incubator project to get started?

[equinox-dev] Support for the console in Equinox




Hello,


I would like to ask what will happen to FrameworkConsole after the Commind Line Interface is placed in a separate service (according to RFC 147)? Will FrameworkConsole remain in the framework or not? We are currently using the console remotely (via telnet), and it is not very user-friendly - it lacks features such as recognizing backspace, del, moving forward and backward, history. If the FrameworkConsole remains in the framework, may we provide a patch adding these features to it?


Kind regards,
Lazar Kirchev
