Re: [ecf-dev] ECF Kepler Status

Congratulations guys. Good work.

with respect to the maintenance release, 3.6.1. Since there is API breakage, and there is now TCK compliance. Would it not be better to go for 4.0.0?

Hi Folks,

I wanted to keep everyone up-to-date about ECF's activities WRT the Kepler release.

1) ECF File Transfer Contribution for P2

First, we contribute the file transfer to p2/Equinox/Eclipse (for the install/update download), and for Kepler, our final contribution was done last Monday, 20th.  For details about that, please see bug [1].

2) OSGi Remote Services/RSA TCK Testing

For the past few weeks, Markus K and I have been testing ECF against the OSGi Test Compatibility Kit (TCK) to verify that our implementation is compliant with the Remote Services (RS...chap 100 in OSGi R5 enterprise spec) and Remote Service Admin (RSA...chap 122 in enterprise spec).  I'm very happy to report that ECF's RS/RSA implementation is now passing all TCK tests...excepting one that we believe represents a bug in the TCK (and have reported to the OSGi folks as such).  This is **great** news, as it means that ECF can/will assert full TCK compliance for our 3.6.1/Kepler release.

3) Kepler Final Days
I propose that we do our final build/contribution for Kepler on: Friday, May 30.  This corresponds to Kepler RC3 +0 (see [1]).   Note we've already made our final contribution of filetransfer and ecf core (1 above), but this final build would be *everything else* for ECF (all remote services plugins, all collaboration/presence plugins, etc).

4) Git Source References
One thing that would be useful to consider would be to add the Eclipse-SourceReferences header to ECF plugins (for 3.6.1) this makes it much easier for consumers to git the ECF source of the correct/same version (using Eclipse/plugin import).   I've created a new bug/enhancement for this here [3].  I cannot do this myself in time for the May 30th final build...but if someone else has some time this week or next, and wants to familiarize themselves with this mechanism as well as our builder, please join the bug [3] and take/assign it to yourself.

Thanks.  I'm really looking forward to getting Kepler out the door. Particularly with the success WRT 2, it's going to be very exciting.

Please ask questions or make comments as desired.
