Vision For Hire: This just in -- New information about Workplace Designer!

Vision For Hire: This just in -- New information about Workplace Designer! "The soon to be seen, IBM Workplace Designer:
I’m going to talk about things from an architectural viewpoint rather than focusing on a “feature set” for two reasons. The architecture is the important part. The architecture limits what can be done with the Domino Designer. Keep in mind also, that this preview I saw was an early preview of what will become a 1.0 product and it would hardly be fair or accurate to compare feature lists. That said it was pretty feature rich already.
The base framework of Eclipse has provided a ready made platform that is stable, responsive, and user-accepted right from the word go. The new designer takes full advantage of this right down to using the existing JavaScript editor and other tools. That means right away the editor has full code completion, help, formatting, object browsing, and all the other features developers have come to expect."

First IBM Workplace Designer detailed overview/preview I've run across (thanks, Bob). I think Eclipse + Notes/Domino application metamodel elements is very significant, and look forward to learning more about it next week at Lotusphere.
