[real time review]

Web and AJAX Track Description

The 'Web and AJAX' Track will present talks and tutorials for two types of Eclipse developers:

1) those who want to create and debug Web Applications based on standards based technologies such as XHTML, JavaScript, and Java EE Specifications (including JSP, JSF, EJB, JPA).

2) those adopters who are interested in how to extend the Web Tools Platform Project.

Action Items

  • David: update 3.0 milestone plans
  • Raghu: create a wiki page: a checklist for how to lower the barrier to participation for all projects
  • David: create wiki page for 3rd-party requirements
  • Jess: Propose bug-finding day.
  • David: Reorg CVS? See bug 198541. It would appear now easier to refactor some cvs directories for easier unix admin ... would NOT change package names, etc. But would change map files. Everyone would have to re-checkout those projects.
  • Bob and Jess: WTP Refactor followup: Need to update website. Bob will do basics, but Project Leads will need to take ownership of their own pages. See bug 201331
