Carl: I sent a note to wtp-dev about bug 299598. In the EJB 3.1 bugs of note section, I added bug 299086.
Kaloyan: I started working on 241667 and 241668. We are waiting to hear back from the Glassfish team on all three of these bugs - we will wait a week before attempting to do these ourselves.
Chuck: Do we have any updates on when Glassfish will contribute?
Carl: I added the link Rochelle sent me for the Glassfish Java EE 6 wizards
Kaloyan: It all looks good to me.
Carl: Chuck, you said last week that you were going to take a pass through the plan and target things- did you get a chance?
Chuck: No. We are looking through the list and working towards targets. We should know in a day or two. Another thing the Glassfish team had mentioned were the Servlet 3.0 elements- that is currently deferred, but if they contribute, we will put in a milestone for it.
Kaloyan: What about the deployment descriptor trees? Are they going to appear in the Project Explorer out of the box?
Carl: That hasn't been done yet.
Chuck: I thought the item providers worked on the existing models already.
Kaloyan: When I did the smoke test recently, I didn't see that for Java EE 6. I will open a bug about this, then.
Carl: Anything else on Java EE 6?
Kaloyan: There is bug 252618 - we weren't sure when Java EE 6 would come out. We wanted to put in an extension point or something so adopters can contribute when Java EE 6 is released.
Chuck: What kind of extensibility are you looking for?
Kaloyan: Extensibility such as what is run when the new facet is added. That way adopters can do the rest of the Java EE 6 functionality in their product. Then, when Java EE 6 was postponed again, we decommitted this enhancement.
Chuck: In terms of adding additiona operations on finish - that is already there. In terms of replacing the operation that is run, that would be a lot of work.
Kaloyan: I was meaning moreso that we rework this bug such that, now that Java EE 6 is there, we can use this to get the Java EE 6 elements all working correctly.
Chuck: So what you mean is going through each of the wizards, one by one, and make sure they work?
Kaloyan: Yes. For example, EJB 3.1 is very similar to EJB 3.0. But for Servlet 3.0, it would be adding the generation of annotations into the servlet code.
Chuck: Can we either add more detail to this bugzilla, or else open separate ones?
Kaloyan: Yes. I will do that.
Angel: I sent Jason Peterson a note about the test results after I apply the patch.
Jason P: If you apply the entire patch with his test case updates, then the JUnits pass. The question is, are you OK with his JUnit updates?
Angel: I will look at the changes this week, and see if we can get these in this week.
Chuck: Can you give us a quick status?
Jason P: The deploy code is complete. The model is done- that code is all committed. I am currently working on the export code- getting it to use the new model.
Chuck: Do we want to try to rush this in, so that it is smoke tested today?
Jason P: That's what Rob wanted.
Chuck: I tend to agree. Angel - can you rush this review? That way we have people pounding on it for a week.
Carl: I worry about another major change. We already have the Java Facet changes this week.
Angel: I think getting it in would be good. If we find a problem, we can always yank it out next week.
Jason P: The biggest change is the children count vs. members count - he updated the counts, and he changed the id references from display name.
Angel: The change of id is what worries me moreso than the counts.
Jason P: I only remember that hitting one test case.
Chuck: Angel, if there is any way you can review those before the WTP meeting, we can decide about the respin then.
Angel: One of the server tools enhancements is already closed. I still have to review the other ones.
