Hi Zhaojun, 
Thanks a lot for taking a look at what's out there. I checked in some additions this evening if you want to look at them -- nothing major. Here's a link to a screenshot of the change (275kb):


As to your points:
1) I agree that the version should be updated at some point. I used 3.1 to keep it at the same level as the existing JSword projects, but otherwise there's nothing to keep us from upgrading it.
2) The vendor jars have the necessary OSGi bundle information in their respective manifest.mf files. Is there something else that should be in there with them?
3) You're more than welcome to help out with this one ;)

I'm playing around with other view and editor ideas, so let me know if you think of anything that you think would be worth seeing.

Take care,

Good work!

I am finalizing my rcp . I checked into svn at
xin.sourceforge.org(Because I did not have ant test classes defined ,
it seems I will never have time to do it now because my employer
demands me to work on c# from now on). Right now, it works fine.  It
mimics websword and has English and Chinese locales . I still have
several places need to be improved. Right now, it support preferences,
update sites. Included also a rssreader. I even added a tray

I am trying to decrease the total size of the app. So I tested you
work in my app, I noticed several places that can be improved:

1. It seems you are using eclipse 3.1. Since 3.3 is almost out, it
makes sense to upgrade to 3.2.1., the official release.(I am using
3.2.1, will upgrade to 33 once it comes out)
2. Vendor folder only contains the jar files with out a metainfo.  It
makes sense to include them to commons by adding the them to runtime
classpath and export the packages.
3. The jsword source code is not updated.
