Guo Yi and Chen Yang Jun have prototyped
an extension to the import
and export tool. At some point
OpenNTF used this tool to allow importing XPages custom controls into Designer
(see old video).
There were a couple of issues with this tool though that the new prototype
tries to address.
The old version wasn't that visible
in Designer. The new version can be launched via right clicking on an NSF
project. The old version also used a browser to display the controls, the
new one a native Eclipse UI. Additionally the flow in the old version was
not natural and not all files/design elements were imported (e.g. no custom
Below are some screenshots. Since Guo
Yi and Chen Yang Jun work on this in their spare time feedback from you
would help to get this finished. I'd think this would be a great addition
to OpenNTF and provide a lot of value, now that we have a critical number
of open source controls.

OpenNTF Essentials available today!
Wed, Nov 20th 2013 1:27p Christian Guedemann We have made a lot of noise about OpenNTF
Essentials. Thanks to all that joined our webinar. It's really a good sign
of our community. Technically OpenNTF Essentials combines a set of projects
into a single updatesite and delivers this with all the example databases
for each individual project. But the technical aspect was not the challenge.

we have chosen the wrong projects? But it's a bit like doing a sightseein [read] Keywords: collaboration
