Carousel, Cool UI, and composites make a great story

As many are aware, Nathan sent out his Carousel composite application to many people yesterday. The great thing is Nathan broke the bounds between Notes and Eclipse and has dove into a real composite application at several levels. Not only did he create a first class Notes component that can be wired to other components he also created a very visually stunning Eclipse component. Then to add to it, Nathan put the entire application into a self installable composite – meaning he used the Eclipse Update Site template code to automatically install the Eclipse features referenced in his application. I know for a fact this was not easy because currently the Notes and Expeditor documentation is anything but perfect – some people even say it sucks. I can say we are well aware and are working on it. 🙂

This makes for a great story! Great job Nathan.
