approval for hot bug 123911 in 1.0.2
I'd like to request PMC approval to release a fix for
hot bug 123911  to the 1.0.2 stream. This bug is the J2EE error message bug
we discussed on last week's status call that Arthur vetoed because the fix at
the time involved adding J2EE specific error customization in WST. On top of
the regular process, for this fix to be accepted I think Arthur will have to
recant his veto.
created an enhanced fix for this bug. The enhanced fix adds a (currently internal)
extension point to the XML validator allowing others to register an error
customizer with the validator for a given namespace. The specific error message
that is to be fixed for this bug is then customized in the J2EE core plug-in
via an error customizer extension. As I mentioned on the call, this extension
point should be generally useful to any adopter that would like to customize
XML validation related error messages. (I have heard this request before
although I can't currently find an open bug for it besides bug 123911.)
be absolutely clear, to users, the end result of this fix in 1.0.2 is that the
The content of element 'application' is not complete. One of
"http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee":module}' is expected.
be replaced with
J2EE Enterprise Application must contain one or more modules.
both Chuck and Tim commented on last week's status call, this one error message
causes a lot of confusion among users and has lead to many invalid bug reports
have back ported the fix to 1.0.2 and tested it with unit tests (included in
the bug report) and manual tests. >From my tests I believe that the fix,
although not trivial, is safe.
