I've been very busy with the EclipseCon conference this week and haven't had enough time to grok what you've written here. I will write a thoughtful response early next week :-)

Hi Wayne.

Thank you for your answer.

As for my ideas about Eclipse IDE for Education:

   1.

   Implementing functionality that would be some kind of virtual teacher.

   Beginners in Java programming at their first months of studing Java
   language often forget about programming style. Also beginners inclined to
   do many absurd mistakes. So, virtual techer could help to format code,
   explain mistakes and errors, help to avoid bugs, giving extended tips and
   lessons.

   For example. Student tries to call a non-static method inside a static
   method, but it doesn't work and student doesn't understand why, because
   he/she is a begginer and has not yet had time to learn it. A virtual teacher
   could give to a student a quite full explanation about static methods: what
   is a static method and how to use it. Such tips can help students to learn
   language quicklier. If student writes code not properly, for example
   method's name starts with a capital letter, he/she would get a reminder,
   that such naming is not good . Such style checking can form a habit to
   write a maintainable and error-free code from their first days of study.
   2.

   Visualization of JVM working. It would introduce JVM's work results
in anintuitive and
   clear form: compiled byte code, stack, heap, references between
objects, states
   of virtual machine and so on.


I am looking for new experience and I also would be glad to implement any
other ideas.

 Hi Svetlana. There is help on the project's wiki page [1]. I'll be honest
with you: this project has stalled due to lack of involvement. I am
interested in reviving it.

However, due to the lack of recent work, we may be a little out of date;
our bug list may not be entirely up-to-date. There are lots of opportunities
in this project, so I invite you to be creative and see what you think you
can bring to the project.

HTH,

Wayne

Hello.
My name is Svetlana Nesterenko. Currently I am studying to obtain master
degree in Chernihiv State Technological University (Ukraine). I would like
to participate in Google Summer Of Code in Eclipse IDE for Education .
I have become familiar with writing RCP applications, downloaded source
code and looked over it.
What should I do to participate in this project?
I am sorry for writing in mailing list, I didn't find another email to
write.
