RE: [dsdp-pmc] Re: Trip report: Eclipse Council Meetings

Hi Michael,

here are answers from the TM project:

> - are we or will we use features of jdk1.5?

We aren't using jdk1.5 features and it currently looks like we're
not going to. The only 1.5 advantage I see is the
 - Ability to use Generics
Since most of the base we depend on (Eclipse Platform) doesn't use
Generics, I don't see a need to switch. So we're going to follow
the Platform -- or do you see any other advantages of Java1.5??

I guess by "Eclipse Common Build" you mean the
package. Yes we are currently using it.

The main problems we had with it, was the lack of a "complete" use
case for applying it. By "complete", I mean an example that includes
*ALL* the steps for uploading build notes, starting the nightly
build, sending success/failure E-Mails etc... I'd really like to
see *all* the scripts that the Platform Releng team (or other teams)
have developed around the PDE build. But it looks like at least
some of them are currently somewhat "hidden". Or could you tell
me where I find the driver scripts that start the nightly, milestone
or integration builds for the Platform?

Or documentation from the releng team how they've set up their

We are using Jsch which is part of the Platform.

We want to bring in Jakarta Commons/Net as soon as EMO Review
is completed. This would then perhaps be a candidate for the
3rd party project. Currently we plan to host this as part of
our project.
