Feedback on "Atelier Explorer" vs "Server Explorer"
My comments here relate to Atelier 1.0.137 on Windows connecting to Ensemble 2016.2 FT build 627.
I've been looking at what the Atelier Explorer view (hereafter AE), whose root elements are projects, lets us do with the contents of the namespace that the project is connected to:
versus what the Server Explorer view (here after SE) gives us:
Here are my observations so far.
1. CSP files are only accessible in SE. I'm guessing this is because Atelier's support for CSP files is so new as not to have propagated yet to everywhere that it's planned to cover.
2. SE hides items that are mapped to the namespace from databases other than the default code database of the namespace. For example SE shows:
and AE shows:
IMO, most of the time the mapped code isn't wanted in these lists. So I prefer SE's behaviour.
3. "Copy to Project" is available on the context menu of a document in SE (e.g. a class) but is not offered on the context menu I get for the same document in AE. I think we need it on AE too as a convenient way of adding existing items to a project.
