First, congrats to those that attended the North American Connectathon
in Chicago last week. Last check looks like all of the folks using OHF
passed, many having > 100 tests passed and verified. The official OHF
representation - OTHER_IBM - also passed all tested profiles, including
XDS.a, XDS.b, ATNA, PIX, PDQ, and XUA.
Thanks to everyone that helped with this event and to those users that
found and reported bugs in the OHF source code. Without your help and
rapid discovery, things would've probably gone much rockier! But, in
the end, looking back - things went extremely smooth and the hiccups we
experienced were minor at best. It was a fun but stressful week and I
hope to see everyone at Connectathon next year.
We now turn our focus to future events... notably the HIMSS
Interoperability Showcase in Orlando and European Connectathon in London.
For HIMSS, our setup will be similar. Any bugs that are experienced
during setup and (heaven forbid :) ) during HIMSS itself will be fixed
immediately and a new OHF version released to the vendors demoing.
Please be prepared to report ANY problems IMMEDIATELY during setup in
Following HIMSS, we will commit into the main branch of CVS multiple
changes that came up from testing last week that will force API and
configuration changes. Many of these changes are critical enough to
make it into pre-HIMSS builds but we don't want people to have to change
their implementations between now and then - it would be best to leave
your code be. We recommend that you use the final OHF builds from
Connectathon (will be available on eclipse.org/ohf shortly) until we say
otherwise w/r/t HIMSS.
For those planning to attend the European Connectathon, new builds will
begin showing up after HIMSS that represent the changes I mentioned
above. We will detail these changes further when it happens - but they
involve Bridge API changes and changes to the format of the
configuration file. These will be available no later than the first
week of March, so that'll give you plenty of time to prepare your for
* Special note: As some of you know, there was also a problem with the
core Axis2 implementation that required a special fix. We are not
legally allowed to distribute this file through the Eclipse process.
Thus, we must wait on the Apache Foundation to issue a new release of
Axis2. Fortunately the problem is not super critical and only affected
a small handful of us at Connectathon. If you encounter the problem in
future systems or places, please ask and we can give you the information
on how to get the 'fix'. If you are paired with the GE repository at
HIMSS, this affects you.
