In the Data Tools Project (DTP), there are several wizards associated with creating driver definitions and connection profiles for tooling components such as the Data Source Explorer (DSE). Recently, new uses cases have emerged in the community that are not met well by the current wizards. For the Ganymede release, there are several folks involved in providing an alternative, more coherent and easily understood approach to creating connection profiles, especially for databases. This talk will focus on a few of the topics under consideration and the current state of the effort.

Brian Fitzpatrick is a software engineer with Sybase, Inc., who has contributed to the Data Tools Project (DTP) since its inception. Brian's focus has mainly been on Eclipse tooling development for Sybase and he hopes to continue helping out with DTP for the forseeable future. Brian lives in Colorado Springs with his wife, two girls, two dogs, and two cats, and attempts to survive the chaos.
