To keep folks informed. We plan to
make an update to use Jetty 9 in the coming week . I hope to have
this released by the I-Build next week. This will require an update
to use Servlet 3.1 as well as a requirement on Java 7 in order to run Jetty
9. Equinox bundles themselves will not require Java 7, it is only
the servlet 3.1 API bundle and the Jetty 9 bundles that will require Java
7. Also note that the Equinox Mars release will no longer ship support
for Jetty 8.
After that I plan to get Ray's contribution
to the update the Equinox HttpService to the latest R6 Http Whiteboard
service merged into master .
These are two of the major items planned
for the Mars release. It would be great for those in the community
that have an interest in the Equinox Http Service to test out the next
Milestones for Mars.
