Eclipse Orion is a Web IDE from Eclipse: http://www.eclipse.org/orion/

XWiki is a powerfull development framework allowing to develop 100% from the Web

The first objective it to build an Orion plugin to communicate with XWiki and allow to view the applications installed in an XWiki instance and add code to them (Javascript extensions, CSS extensions, Velocity and Groovy scripts, Scheduler jobs, etc..). This would allow to edit XWiki code from Orion and save changes to XWiki and view the results right away.

The second objective is to embed the Orion code inside XWiki to be able to run the IDE from XWiki itself. From App Within Minutes you should be able to launch the Orion IDE UI and load all the code from the AppWithinMinutes application.

Finally it should be possible to edit and XWiki class from the Orion UI.
