[OpenAjaxIDE] No meeting today - postponed to next week

I've been out on leave for the last 4 weeks, but I'm back now.

We (Adobe) have implemented support for the original syntax:


But have not implemented support for %%foo%% syntax yet.

I thought we discussed the issue of of the function syntax already, and it was decided that we would stick with the original proposed syntax where it looks like a function call? I recall bringing up that future functions could also have arguments ... which sounds useful for date formatting ... though I guess you could express:

@@formatdate(startdate, yyyy/mm/dd)@@

easily with your proposed syntax:

@@startdate(formatdate, yyyy/mm/dd)@@

I also recall some of us not liking the __MSG_foo because it introduced a different template token format, while the use of %%foo%% seemed ok because it at least modeled the use of @@foo@@.

Lori, Bertrand, Howard, Javier and I showed up for today's phone call, but we decided to wait until next week (when Kin or someone else from Adobe hopefully will be able to attend) before discussing the two issues below.

While we were on the phone, Howard did confirm that TIBCO has a real problem with our %%foo%% syntax for localization variables, where they have existing products installed at many customer accounts that use the same syntax for something else, and in both cases this syntax can appear within the snippet of HTML that would appear within the <content> element. In private email, Howard and I batted around alternate syntax proposals, such as:

Localization substitution. Instead of:
perhaps this (using OpenSocial syntax as the starting point)
__ MSG_foo(escapequotes)__

Then, for property substitution:

But we need to hear from Adobe whether they have implemented the %% syntax and whether they have implemented entityencode() and escapequotes().

[OpenAjaxIDE] Agenda for today's phone call

Sorry about the late notice.

If Howard and Kin (or someone else from Adobe who can address these issues) join the call today, then let's talk about these two issues that we postponed out of last week's phone call; otherwise, we probably need to postpone again:

(4) Any products out there with %% localization support already?

          *   Jon: http://openajax.org/pipermail/ide/2009q2/001196.html
TIBCO is running into a conflict with existing products which
already use similar syntax and is wondering who has
implemented %% and if this can be changed
(perhaps ## or ~~ or __MSG_key__ like OpenSocial).

(6) Finalizing the metadata spec

          *   What implementation experience do we need?
          *   Detailed spec reviews: set a deadline?
          *   Target dates for finalization and approval?
