  • Investigating OpenEJB container (from Apache) for quick/easy out of the box testing, etc.


Architecture: Tim deBoer

  • Will be re-forming group to priortize architecture items for 3.1


Requirements: Raghu Srinivasan

Requirements Document is done?

We need Draft release plan, in standard format, for next years release by June (See see bug 215301).
Raghu to lead, and propose an alternative or two. Rumor has it that the June deadline was to have a standard format decided, and the "infrastructure" in place to roll them up into a single roadmap document. The "real" plan is expected by September. My understanding was there would be a new note to this effect to "project leads list", but haven't seen it yet.


Education: Naci Dai

Please review: Resource Page Proposal


Planning: David Williams

  • 3.0.1 RC this Thursday
  • Pre 1.0 release of XSL component mid August
  • Pre 1.0 release of ATF component mid October
  • 3.0.1, 3.0.2 and 3.0.3
  • JPT 2.1 ?
  • 2009, Io Release
Dates update for Thursday status meeting.
Discussed possible desire for WTP 3.1 to stay compatible with 3.4 platform, and some ideas came up:
  • deviations should have PMC review: choices forcing us to Eclipse 3.5 should not be made casually, nor 'accidentally'
  • WTP team to do no or little testing on 3.4 platform (it'd be responsibility of adopters wishing ot run in that configuration).
  • doesn't mean WTP 3.1 can't take advantage of 3.5, but, ideally, if 3.5 not there, and running on 3.4 instead, then things would still work as before (as they did on 3.4) and the 3.5 specific function just gracefully fail with log message, or something.


General business?

Will have PMC debreif next week, after status meeting version.
