Good suggestions. I beleive BEA plans
to submit a report but hit a few snags. Jeffrey will assist them.
Please open a bugzilla enhancement request
on releng so we can track your suggestions and implement them.

|[wtp-dev] adopter usage reports|
Here's my thoughts on the adopter usage reports and the nifty plugin
tool. I talked to Jeffrey about this last week but figured it may
be of general interest.
- We need more adopter reports. Currently I see 3 and they're all
from IBM. I know there's other companies building on WTP ... can
we get more reports? Perhaps we need to do a better job of advertising
- We need more frequent updates to our reports. My team made a 'boo
boo' last week that the reports would not have caught since the adopter
didn't add the dependency until after the report was generated.
That does not excuse our 'boo boo' of course :-)
- The plugin tool is nice! Kudos to Jeffrey! I think finding breakages
'after' you've already made the code changes is too late in some cases.
I'd like a way to view the reports so that I can eyeball the usages
'before' I even think about making code changes. Can someone write
an XSL file so we can generate pretty HTML to read these things?
It'd be very nice to publish these on the WTP site.
- This is a minor one ... our usage report files are large xml files that
are formatted in such a way that the entire thing fits on one line. I
think one of the great benefits of XML is that it's 'semi-readable'.
Can we please generate reports with standard formatting so they can be
read by humans?
BTW.... I noticed that our SSE based tools really don't like these
one-liner-xml-files. I originally attempted to open one of these
suckers in the XML editor so I could format it there. That didn't
turn out so well (I'll open a bug for this.. but I think it's a known problem).
I guess some programs have as hard a time with these as humans do
:-) I created an XSL file to format the one-line-xml-files into
multiple lines with indents (attached below) if anyone wants to use it.
