    What would be the benefit? Bringing a web based IDE on par with Eclipse would cost a hundred man years of development. I'm very sure HCL won't do that. So the result would be some kind of light weight Designer that is of very little use for "real" developers.

    If platform independence is the goal: Eclipse already is platform independent. I even had it run on my mobile once (for curiosity). Its the various Notes editors that tie Designer to Windows. Rewriting the native editors as true Eclipse editors and turning Designer into a standard Eclipse plugin would do the job at much lesser cost. And it brings high additional benefit: Use standard versioning and build tools, easily use modern languages like Scala, benefit from tools like FindBugs etc.

    A web based Designer that more or less resembles the Designer capabilities of the basic client might be an option for super users who are not meant to do "real" development. But this still would be a heavy job and non developers doing any development is a risky way to go that may lead to high follow-costs.
