At the request of the PMC I'm sending
out this note on an API addition in server tools:
In 1.5 the J2EE team added support for
EAR projects to contain binary copies of the J2EE modules they contain
instead of using separate projects. Unfortunately, this information was
not pushed up through server tools so there was no way for servers tools
API users or server adapters to know about the binary modules; they couldn't
be published or used by downstream components. To support this in 1.5.1,
there will be two API additions in wst.server:
This method allows downstream
API users to access modules when there are more than one per project.
This change is binary compatible and
will not affect existing server adapters. The only components that need
to react are the jst.j2ee team (to feed in the new module information)
and downstream server tools API users that want to take advantage of the
new J2EE project structure.
Please see bug 151696 for further information.
