General Improvements

  1. Editor Hints (40 person days)

  2. Bean Navigator (20 person days)
    1. Enhanced Navigator view for spring configuration file which shows the beans and the associated inter-relation.
  3. Refactoring (30 person days)
    1. Support for util name space (which provides easy ways of defining metadata structures.
    2. Bean name renaming.
    3. Renaming Java names in bean.
  4. Visual graph to show bean inter-relation and navigation. (Not planned)
  5. Spring support for EJB 3.0 (annotation) (Awaiting external contribution)
