    Neil gave an overview:

    • New incubating top-level project
    • Persistence platform based on OSGi
    • Infrastructure only, no tooling plan yet
    • Expect JAXB tooling in WTP in the future
    • Relationship to DTP not clear yet

    Jess: WTP has historically been runtime-agnostic. We'll have to keep our eye on this and discuss further.


  • JSF project would like to use Java 5. One reason is that it is the best opportunity to move to the latest version since this is our first release and we don't have any backward compatibility / adopter breakage issues.
    • All approved

  • 1.5.4 PMC review: Do we need more specific description of what constitutes stop-ship in 1.5.4? Please review the following request for 1.5.4,
    • David: Critical, unusual but necessary bug fix. Will have adopted mark it as a hot bug
    • Raghu: Seems like features are going into the 1.5 line. Should we change the workding re: what constitutes a stop-ship bug in 1.5.4?
    • David: We could, but there will always be some exceptions. Let's continue to discuss these as they come up.

    • Should we combine WTP, JSF and JPA? Yes for now. May need a future packaging of JPA for non-web-apps

  • 1.5.4
    • First week for tested I-Builds
