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


Terminology Clashes

  • issue vs task
  • issue tracker vs task repository (in Find/Report Issue, Services tab)

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.

  • add all missing features to the dashboard - Clone, Mark all as Seen, Mark Task Seen/Not Seen
  • Modify Query TC - main use-case is to edit queries save id dashboard, view resulted tasks in a minor one
    • TC show attributes and tasks, both collapsable (by default attributes are expanded and tasks collapsed)

  • transform Find Issues into Create Query
    • change title to Create Query
    • remove My Queries - this list is already represented in the Task Dashboard
    • move toolbar next to the Search button - save will be probably removed and the toolbar should be probably move where the My Queries were before
    • highlight the save button by icon
    • remove Go to Issue panel (this func is in dashboard)
    • save a query does not open Query TC, but it opens/activates Task Dashboard and select new query

Issue TC

  • remove Add to Action Items from the toolbar
  • modify saving/submiting mechanism

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 Image:Yes.png

  • 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: remove...

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


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