Action Items

  • Rob: Compile list of public API packages/classes for John by 11/15.
  • Rob: Clarify handling of any non-API classes in public packages.
    • 11/13 - No action is necessary. Public API are defined at the class level, not the package level. This means any classes which are not public, should not be included in the public API declaration, regardless of which package contains them.
  • Rob: Clarify unit test requirements for UI components.
    • 11/13 - A best effort should be made to create tests for these components.
  • Rob: Coordinate with SQL Development Tools team regarding SQL parser extension mechanism.
    • 11/13 - A BZ entry will be created to discuss the issue. This will not be public API for 1.0.
  • Rob: Track status of Javadoc completion for core and SQM plugin APIs.
  • Rob: Track status of unit test completion for core and SQM plugin APIs.
  • Linda: Track status of unit test completion for ODA plugin APIs.
