Review bug backlog, builds,
Daivd - Weekly I-build candidate is out, looks good so far. Please smoke test by noon.
David - Still have 2 blockers.
111253 blo P3 nagrawal@xxxxxxxxxx REOP EJB Validator gives CHKJ2802E error when ejb project dep...
111886 blo P3 cbridgha@xxxxxxxxxx NEW j2ee webservice plugin startup problems
Daivd - The Web service plug-in startup problem, doesn't look serious.
Chuck - It's a ClassNotFound exception at startup. This class has been renamed already, so not sure why we are getting that. Tried -clean, doesn't help, could be a configuration problem.
Chuck - For the EJB validator bug, it only happens on Linux headless environment. Although it's blocking this particular scenario, the scenario itself is not main stream.
David - We have 22 critical bugs. There's about 10 of them that do not have a target milestone. Critical bugs should have a target, component leads please take a look. We need to target them by next weekWe only have 3 weeks left till M9.
[action] Component leads to review critical bugs and assign a milestone target.
[action] Action for David to create a link to the committers build page.
3. WTP 1.0 Performance - Jeffrey Liu
Review the Top Ten performance
problems and the fix plan for them.
Jeff - Not much to report here other than the action items from above.
Daivd - Please make sure your JUnit testcase can also be run in 0.7. We want to see the imporvements.
Jeff - If your testcase does not work in 0.7, you can send me one that works and I'll run it for you.
4. WTP 1.0 API Scans - Jeffrey Liu
Review the status of the
API scans including our Javadoc and JUnit coverage, errors in the API,
and violations of the Eclipse Platform API.
Jeff - API reports are now available for the latest 1007 I build.
[action] Action for Jeff. Open bugs for API violation (per component).
5. WTP Features and Subsystems Status  - David Williams
David - Updated document from last week. It is questionable how we handle the JST division. Someone suggested more fine grain features.
David - I have feature definition in my local workspace. Plan to roll out the WST side first and then get feedback.
Ted - For the product adapters, are we going to have one feature per vendor or a feature for all?
David - The plan is a feature for all. Not sure if there's any requirements to pick out specific one. This is open to debate, if a requirement comes in, we can discuss it.
Ted - I'm sure products building on top of WTP would all like the ability to pick and choose which server type they want and not want to include.
Konsta - For example, we don't want to see the Generic WebLogic adaptors since we have a custom one that provides much more integration.
David - Let's do this in small steps. First off, let's roll out with one big feature. Then we can revisit this requirement and refine the feature if necessary.
Craig - Wouldn't capability solve this issue?
Jeff - Does capability just filiter UI?
Craig - No, it can filter based on extension points.
6. Flexible Project
Development Status - Chuck Bridgham
Chuck - Not much update here... We need to define the set of facets.
Jeff - Chris/Kathy, is Web service still on schedule to complete the port (based on the schedule that Kathy sent out previously)?
Kathy - We are a bit behind. Tim D. may need a couple more days to complete his port.
Chuck - We were going to remove the component type ID and replace it with project facet APIs this week. However, we are now going to delay it to next week.
Ted - We'll be adopting the new project facet wizard when we take on the new APIs.
Chuck - That's a lot of work. You can get onto our framework and use our current wizard to create facet projects.
Chris - So can you have API and framework going by next week I-Build?
Chuck - The target for the facet APIs is next week.
Chris - Should we expect breakages in APIs?
Chuck - There will be some in the component APIs, which we announced. For others, we can work together if any comes up
Chuck - The operations framework will be funcational.
David - Does all projects need to have a facet?
Chuck - All J2EE projects will have at least one base facet, the Java facet.
Chuck - However, we don't have the set of facet defined. Need to work on that.
Ted - I can write a proposal for that, and iterate from it.
[action] Action for Ted. Create a proposal for facets.
David - What about users from version 0.7 that need to move to this facet model in 1.0?
Konsta - Users are not required to use facets if they do not want to.
David - For those who want to exploit facets, any migration plan?
Chuck - Correct, we need to consider migration from 0.7.
Ted - When registering projects to EAR? Are there any plans for an event model? something API-able?
Chuck - Possiblely, we don't have an event model now, but you can listen on the EAR's EMF model. I can show you how to do that.
7. Project Facets Development
Status -Konstantin Komissarchik
Konsta - API level development happening.
Jeff - Can they be single jarred?
Konsta - They will, trying to resolve some image loading issues first.
8. Other Business -
Ted - Just want to get Tim's status on getting rip of .deployable. Just want to see if people have tried exporting EAR now that it's gone.
Chuck - Pretty sure it is not working.
David - Remember the bug about more flexibility in naming Web content and Java source. Ted u looking at it?
Ted - yea. Trying to get some people to create some UI for that.
Ted - We have some usability suggestions for the properties panel in the J2EE page as well. We might be able to implement the suggestions as well :)
Ted - We will post some suggestions and ask for feedback.
David - What's Dynamic Web project (new)?
Chuck - That's the new facet wizard. Just a temporary thing.
Konsta - We also have new wizards for EAR, utility projects, etc. So you can play around with the new UI.
