Announcements and General Business

  • Status of Pave Project?

    Release Review withdrawn, after email discussion with Dimitar Giormov and Kaloyan. We should document (e.g. in FAQ) our policy of "when to release".

  • JSF Plans per Raghu's note?

    We discussed that bugs should be opened, and marked for PMC review to make it easier for everyone to track "exceptions". Also encouraged plenty of adopter review and queries to make sure nothing breaks (or, if it does, the benifit is worth the cost). Raghu mentioned that some of this work has been going on "in incubator", but changes are needed to incorportate it (if I heard that right). Plus, he has had some extra help for last month or so and will be nominating them as a JSF committer soon.

  • JUnit 4 vs. 3

    Neil mentioned issues with JUnit 4 vs. 3 (that in IDE, you can get warnings and quick fixes based on 4, even when range of 3.8 and up is specified) which then "breaks" if only 3.8 is available. He'll writeup warning and/or queries on expected behavior.

  • JAXB

    Neil mentioned they have some JAXB wizards in Dali, appearing in M6, to use with persistence. Was encouraged to reach out to webservices (even though they'd been clear about it on dali lists, and plans). He also mentioned this might make a good addition to EclipseCon tutorial.

  • EclipseLink

    Disscussed moving ElcipseLink runtime out of IDE (into target only). Neil mentioned there are (or could be) some function provided to IDE via some runtime libraries, such as parsing JPQL. He'll investigate options and comment in bugs, if EclpseLink runtime really is needed for IDE.
