Description John Mazzitelli 2009-05-12 13:03:00 UTC
For example, for a JON Agent resource:

Type: JON Agent (JONAgent)

and for a Windows platform resource:

Windows (Platforms)

The parens contain the plugin name. I did this be cause type names are only unique to their plugin. For example, how do we differentiate between a "Table (Oracle)" and a "Table (Postgres)". I was intending to add this to pretty much everywhere we show the type names. For example, there's no way to tell apart the postgres and oracle table types in the drop-down type selection on the resource hub browser.

"Table (Postgres)" is useful, but "JON Agent (JONAgent)" and "Windows (Platforms)" are not useful and will only confuse users. We should only append the plugin name if there is more than one resource type with the same name (this would be simple enough to query).

Or, we have a separate "Plugin:" field in the UI:

Type: Windows
Plugin: Platform

hover over the text and you'll get a tooltip that explains the plugin name is the thing in the parens
