Re: [jta-dev] Jakarta Transactions 2.0 for Jakarta EE 9 remaining items

Great progress.  Do you think we could be complete end of day Thursday so that the spec committee could start the final ballot Friday morning?

Right, they don't go in

The next step here is to generate final versions of the specification HTML and PDF and overwrite the RC3 copies in this PR:


Also yank any 'RC3' or similar designations from the and similar.

I saw another question on release date to use.  Hugo won't publish files if the date is in the future and this spec will be complete and public (hopefully) a few weeks before the Jakarta EE 9 Platform spec, so definitely don't use November.  Any date that's current or recently past works.

I did a grep through the TCK and I think it's good enough to pass a vote.  My recommendation would be to promote it and target any improvements for either a maintenance release or when we target java 11 and very likely have to release them all again.

We need the compatible implementation to submit a Certification Request to this project claiming compliance with the promoted TCK.  It'd be identical to this one for Jakarta Transactions 1.3

If it was fixed with the staged binaries, great.  If not, best to leave it alone for now as re-rolling the binaries will mean GlassFish has to redo any work incorporating the staged binaries.

Generally as of Oct 1st we're out of "nice to have" fix range and entering "it has to be a showstopper" territory.
