Re: [wtp-dev] Faceted Project Framework API to use Java 5 language features
This plan sounds pretty good, Konstantin.
I would recommend, though, that even before plugin versions are incremented,
that the new code be made available in a branch, so committers can pull
it into their workspace and review it and test it in their development
environment. To avoid reviewers from having to update the pre-req ranges
during this review stage,
you could temporarily leave the version
number the same I think ... that is mostly a production runtime need.
Plus, I'm 99% sure everything will be
fine ... but ... for me anyway, if I can't see it in my development environment,
then it's just not quite comprehensible to me.
You can pick your own branch name, but
most use a name that denotes what it's for, and that it's temporary ...
such as proposed_facet_generics or similar.
This may sound like overkill, but ...
since most of us are not as familar with generics as you are, so we could
use the sneak peek.
Also, I've lost track, what's the API
status? Are they already? If not, is that planned for WTP 2.0?

|[wtp-dev] Faceted Project Framework
API to use Java 5 language features|
PMC just approved the plan to let Faceted
Project Framework use Java 5 language features for WTP 2.0 release. This
e-mail details the plan of action.
First of all, changes to the API to use generics
are fully source and binary backwards compatible with existing clients.
Wherever enhancing the API to use Java 5 language features would have caused
API breakage, the changes were not made. I have the changes ready locally
and we will roll them out as follows:
1. Fix the version ranges on all of the referring
plugins so that they will be able to accept the new version of the Faceted
Project Framework plugins. See my previous e-mail for information regarding
this. I have made the necessary changes locally on my machine and can release
them unless I hear objections from plugin owners. I’d like this step to
be completed as soon as possible. How about right after this week’s I-build
2. Once #1 is complete and we have a build
ready that includes that change, I will send an e-mail to this mailing
list containing the new version of the Faceted Project Framework plugins.
They will be compiled and ready to drop into an existing build for testing.
The interested parties at this point can try out these plugins and report
3. Assuming that #2 goes smoothly and any
reported problems are corrected, the changes to the Faceted Project Framework
will be released into the build right after M5 is declared. Then we will
have all of M6 to flush out any lingering issues.
