3. WTP 0.7.1 Maintenance Stream - Jeffrey Liu
Jeffrey - All NL fixes are in the build. I have a list of bugs that we need to triage for inclusion in the release. Let's review the candidate bugs now.
1. Srgjan Srepfler - Code completion for taglibs imported from an external file with <%@include file="/WEB-INF/include/tags.jsp"%>
2. Bob Foster - If two editors use the 2.x-compatible API, one or both doesn't work
Michael Giroux - agree
Mark - agree
David - I think we can make 0.7.1 but it requires some work. I recommend we investigate and fix if possible.
Tim - I agree that you should do the research and review the impact.
[resolution] David to investigate impact of this fix.
3. Jeffrey Liu - XSD graphical editor memory leak
Jeffrey - This is a free fix from Eclipse 3.1.1. We need to test it.
[resolution] Test the fix from Eclipse 3.1.1.
4. Jeffrey Liu - 100% CPU for over 3 minutes opening a directory in the Navigator view with over 2000 HTML files
Jeffrey - This problem is caused by eager parsing to determine encoding.
David - I have looked at it and have an easy and safe fix. I'm waiting for Jeffrey to add the test to the performance bucket and measure it before the fix.
[action] Jeffrey to add the test to the bucket and measure the current performance before David fixes it.
5. Andreas Schildbach - .deployables seen in Synchronize when set to Team Ignore (which is marked as fixed but is not really fixed)
Jeffrey - This was not fixed correctly.
Chuck - There is no solution in hand.
Arthur - Why not defer this since will be eliminated in 1.0?
Chuck - I will suggest a workaround in the bug report.
[action] Chuck to respond to bug
6. Andreas Schildbach - Web App Libraries are dropped from the classpath on first start of Eclipse/WTP
Jeff - This occurs when using JDK 1.5.
Arthur - We should support JDK 1.5.
Tim - There is a workaround and this is normal severity.
7. Andreas Schildbach - Invalid character constant in EL _expression_
David - The validator gives a false positive. This is not critical. It's normal severity.
8. Cheng - problem about include
Phil - I haven't looked at it.
David - There is no fix in hand.
9. Cheng - JSP Fragments need content properties page
Jeff - This an enhancement request.
10.1 Jeffrey Liu - Incorrect copyright statement
10.2 Jeffrey Liu - Incorrect copyright statement
Jeffrey - There are copyright and comment errors in the source code.
Arthur - I propose that we should fix all comments in the source code for 0.7.1.
Tim - Agreed.
[resolution] Jeffrey to resolve all comment errors.
4. WTP 1.0 M8 Status - David Williams
All component leads should be prepared to discuss their milestone plans. Refer to WTP Roadmap for themes. 
David - We are building but the current I-build failed. We need smoke testing before declaring it at noon. There are larger changes in the works. Let's be sure this build is stable.
[action] David to send reminder to do testing on the I-build.
Lawrence - I am working on a milestone plan for Help, targetting October for translation.
Craig - No plan writen yet., Some content model and WSDL model will be APIs. had some late bugs around URI resolution. I will provide documentation on URI resolvers and end user guide on catalog and cache. The plan should be done by next week.
Chris - I have plans committed for M8, M9, M10. They are fairly complete. There will be public APIs for frameworks, command, Web service runtimes, Web service finder, and a couple dozen bugs planned.
David -My plans are published. The focus is on rolling out APIs in small chunks, first within WTP: model manager and structured documents.
Chuck - No plan published yet. I need to work with Ted on project features. Several APIs are planned: J2EE models for M8. I need to define a component layer and validate the data model with Chris. There are some bugs and additional function.
Larry - Just planning defect fixes for Data.
David - I have some bugs open on the model - UI split in the Data component.
Arthur - Recall that you need targetted bugs for all work items. We can then generate an accurate plan from Bugzilla
David - Naci and I have published a document on Feature definitions. I have added the dependencies.
Arthur - Layering is important for subsetting, i.e. one Feature should drag in minimal prerequites.
David - It's also important for internal management of complexity and the build.
Chris - We do have some Web service Explorer enhancements planned.
5. EclipseWorld Update - All Attendees
Arthur - This was a good event. There were lots of other project members, e.g. from Oracle and Versant. There were some problems due to lack of network access which affected validation.
Tim - There were also some deployment problems. However the JSP editor worked well.
Lawrence - There were lots of WTP talks - 7 or 8, and they were very well attended. Some talks had standing room only.
Tim - Yes, it was great. We met the Sybase DTP guys, and had very productive sessions working with Oracle and Versant on the EBJ 3.0 Persistence projects.
6. Other Business - Open
Tim - Bjorn has asked all projects to
houseclean their Web sites. We need to archive old plans.
Arthur - Remember to only accept contributions via Bugzilla patches.
Chuck - I am working with Kosta to check in Project Features. Which component should we use?
Kosta - There are several components, UI, core, and stuff that is distributed across other components.
Arthur - Use common for now.
David - Will this be ready for M8?
Kosta - The code contribution has a full implementation of our spec except for runtimes, plus Web, EAR, and Utility features.
