Announcements and General Business

  • Any proposals yet for 3.0.5? Tentative proposal May 20th/27th.
  • Proposal for WTP 3.2: JPA 2.0, JSDT, JEE 6 tolerance? JEE 6 Support? JSF 2.0?
  • ... in December? or March?
  • ... or release in December, service in March?
  • ... what, then would June's release be? (same, but on Eclipse 3.6)
  • XSL Tools Graduation?

Unclear when JPA 2.0 Spec. will finalize (probably summer, but possible fall). But otherwise Dec. is good.

Is JPA 2.0 "tied to" the JEE 6.0? No.

JEE 6 tolerance for sure, some support if specs done

when would feature freeze be? Kaloyan leaning toward October feature freeze. "Early December" preferable.

XML Project would be good, but important to keep as a unit.

Reports, Actions, Issues

Planning: David Williams

  • 3.0.4 (SR2) to become public on 2/25.
  • We are doing some few 3.0.4 patches (will have 3.0.4 P target).


WTP User Experience Lead: Kaloyan Raev

Kaloyan reports he's submitted 2 ideas to summer-of-code wiki: the emf indexing of jee artifacts, and a preview ejb container. This is "summer of '09" item, if it gets accepted, and interests a participant.


Quality: Neil Hauge

  • Focus items in status meetings:

    Good progress ... switch to something new in week or two.

  • Neil investigating a blanket "close old bugs" policy -- to present to the group for review and approval.
  • Neil has estimated approximately 800 bugs (of 2000 untargeted bugs) could be considered "old bugs". He'll prepare a table and note to send to project with encouragement to PLs to handle ... something like either triage individually and assign a target, or mark with 'helpwanted' or mark in mass with a kind comment to re-open if still an issue (with reason for the mass update, etc.).
  • Reference:

    Architecture: Tim deBoer

    • API Tools. Tim to investigate and make recommendations to teams.

    Tim still owes writeup of tips on how to get started.

    Gary will discuss Concurancy at Thursday's status meeting>
