I vote Eclipse 3.1 because,
1. There is already a sample of the
web tools available for Eclipse 3.0.
2. People interested in installing our
milestone builds are probably going to install the Eclipse 3.1 milestone
builds as well.
3. The web tools should work with the
latest version of Eclipse and according to the Web Tools milestone plan
it looks like the first release will be around the time of the Eclipse
If the project does move to Eclipse
3.1 I think we should follow the Eclipse milestone plan by a week as Naci
suggests. This will mean pushing back M2 and M3 by a week but I think it
will be worth it in the long run.
The current Web Tools milestone plan:
Wednesday Dec. 15, 2004 - Milestone
Tuesday Feb. 15, 2005 - Milestone 3

Please respond to
[wtp-dev] POLL: 3.0
Please voice your opinions on the subject:
WTP release will be for Eclipse 3.1, so eventually we have to move to
3.1. The question not if but when.
- 3.0.x stream i stsable and beaing used in production - It will provide
immediate test bed since there are many installed.
- Delayed integration with 3.1, missing the potential to create
requirements for 3.1 development steram
- Early and greadual integration with new Eclispe features
- Working with a changing code base.
My Suggestion is WTP 1.0M2 (Released Dec 15) should be based on Eclipse
3.1M3 (Released Nov5). Eclipse 3.1M4 is released two days after (Dec
so this creates a potential problem with immediately becoming
outdated. Ideally we should lag Eclipse releases by a week or so,
December is problematic due to Holidays.
