Grails 1.4 is going to introduce tab completion in the shell, it will likely do this by inclusion of metadata files for each command. We should review the files and see what impact it might have on us:
- should we be improving our command code assist using this information
- will there be enough in these files to create the command wizard entries for grails command, so that we don't have to 'manually' define them. (The command wizards for grails would then effectively be user extensible just by them providing these metadata files alongside any commands they define in a plugin)
- should we feedback to the grails team before 1.4 goes final - if there is something we can influence in these files that would make our lives as the tools developers more straightforward.
I'm targetting 2.7.0.RELEASE because I don't yet see a 2.8.0.M1. Maybe in the 2.7.0.RELEASE timeframe we can at least start the review.
