Community

  • Eclipse Program Committee expanded the number of tutorial allocations for WTP, and the PMC has now finalized tutorial acceptances in its area. (See EclipseCon: Web Development Track for Eclipse information.)

Process

Requirements and 2.0 Planning

  • EE 5: Summary of email threads moved to Wiki page, and Naci will compose a working group to carry this proposal forward. (AI: Send invite.) General idea is to do this as a separate package that extends the existing J2EE models. XML translator framework and annotations are two of the identified challenges; will look at what Dali has done in this area.
  • AI: David - Language around Java 5 adoption guidelines.

Build Status (David)

  • 1.5.3: first declared build last week
  • 2.0: M3 declared, includes Dali and prereqs DTP
  • Project version interop testing discussion. Agreed that test plan is needed in this area, and requires representative projects in CVS for testing. AI: David - follow up with Chuck.

ATF (Bob)

  • Reworking personality builder and defining extension points in that area.
  • Also defining APIs in browser area.
  • JavaScript editor: some interest from others in engaging with this effort; depending on scope, will investigate whether a new component or project is indicated. See the proposal on the ATF Wiki.
  • AI Bob: Work with Tim on tech preview planning logistics (post Thanksgiving).

Dali/JPA (Neil)

  • M3 includes Dali core/db plugins and includes Java 5 and DTP dependencies working
  • Presenting Dali to user working group this week and describing existing limitations and how to proceed on annotation and XML editing
  • Documentation describes how to install JPA runtimes

JSF (Raghu, by email)

  • Refactoring for WTP 2.0 complete, plan to release by COB Tuesday.
  • Working on Visual Page Designer design
  • Milestone planning should be complete by 28th.
  • EclipseCon: Submitted long talk on Extending the JSF Tools Project
