List of clashes, duplicates and close relationships between current IDE functionality and new Task-Driven NetBeans features.


Query list in the Team/Find Issues TC

We already have kind of list of saved queries in the Team/Find Issues TC. This functionality is a duplicate of the Repository/Query list int the Dashboard so I think it should be removed ASA the Dashboard is ready to be used.

Honza: query list is also used for searching in create query TC (useful feature). A solution could be to use query list only in Find issues and the edit mode of the query - there will be no "only issues view" but a edit window with both params and issue results. Whole logic and feature set of a Query TC should be simplified:

  • add all missing features to the dashboard - Clone, Mark all as Seen, Mark Task Seen/Not Seen
  • right now it has two roles - create a query and search for the tasks and I think priorities of those roles have changed. From the name itself you can say that it was designed mainly for searching for tasks and the possibility of creating a query was an addition feature. In the Dashboard we are more query oriented so I think we should divide it responsibility of this TC - creation of a query should be handled by Query TC (simply open Query TC) and searching by slightly modified Find Issues/Find Tasks TC.
  • modify Find Issues
    • remove My Queries - this list is already represented in the Task Dashboard
    • review the toolbar next to the Search button - save will be probably removed and the toolbar should be probably move where the My Queries were before

Issue Trackers area in Service Image:Yes.png

We have a list of issue trackers and the ability to Find or Report Issues in the Services window.

Tomas: don't see a problem because of this. The services tab is there to list registered services. http://wiki.netbeans.org/ServicesTabFuncSpec.

Honza: OK

Tasks Window Image:Yes.png

There was some discussion about renaming this and changing the intent of it, but up until 7.2 it was clashing with the terminology we use for TaskFocused: Task Dashboard, Task Context, etc.

In 7.2 the window was renamed to Action Items.

Issue/Query refresh

  • there is a checkbox in the Query dialog to setup if it should be auto-refreshed in case the dialog is open
  • issues are auto-refreshed as well. (no checkbox though)

Honza: Probably remove the check-box if we'll agree on merging modify query and issues list - leave the refreshing on the Dashboard

Versioning integration

  • there is Issue, Issue tracker and Update issue labels in versioning commit dialogs. Issue should be replaced with Task. The labels come partially from the commit dialog itself and partially from QuickSearchCombo
  • Attach Patch dialog

Query vs. Find Issue

currently "Find Issues ..." is the action name when invoking a query, but the Dashboard comes with the verb "query" for an equivalent action.

Also note that the query dialog in Bugzilla/Jira also contains fields to simply open a specific issue...


Currently there is a tab called "Issue Tracking". Has to be cleanup up from irrelevant settings and maybe also renamed to "Tasks Something"
