[stp-dev] Ongoing STP Development Activities

Hi All,

Following on from our recent initial contribution we have now planning to continue development in Service Creation components in a number of areas, mainly around
 * JAX WS Development and fleshing out what we have
 * WSDL First Mode support
 * Integration with the STP Deployment infrastructure
 * Packaging & Build System Updates


From the JAX WS Perspective, a number of bugzilla bugs have been created:

And two which were bugs were fixed earlier today as they were serious enough to warrant an immediate fix 159575 nor P3 All david.beaurpere@xxxxxxxx RESO FIXE annotation view doesn't auto refresh properly 159577 nor P3 All david.beaurpere@xxxxxxxx RESO FIXE annotation view can corrupt the java document it is editing

Our aim here with the JAX WS stuff is to get it to a more usable robust state and these bugs represent our starting point areas that we feel would be best made. I would welcome suggestions if there's stuff you'd like to see done (or indeed contribute) in this area.

WSDL First Mode

Secondly, in terms of provision of a WSDL First Mode for the STP, I'm of a very strong belief that we need to integrate with the WTP editor. I've create a bug:

to capture my initial thoughts on how to start about this integration. I'll follow up with Oisin on this to get a conversation started.

Deployment Integration

I'd like to also kick off some discussions here on the integration points with the contributed deployment framework. We have been doing some research here in IONA on this and will be discussing this on the dev list soon.

Build & Packaging

Currently we're not shipping either the deployment framework or the SC code in Integration builds. I plan on updating the build system to address the SC side of things in the next week or so. Bugzilla 159730 raised for this and I'll post to the list once it's done.

In addition to this I'm also going to start scheduling weekly builds of the STP going so the download site will start to reflect this activity.

If you have any comments / questions on the above feel free to drop me a line.
