WTP Common Tools

Dali Java Persistence Tools

WTP EJB & Java EE Tools

  • Roberto Sanchez: Worked on bugs 462042, 461356, 463504, 462339, 463140, 459564, 463162. Will continue working on 463504 and 459564

JavaScript Development Tools

Victor Rubezhny: Need a support from WTP SourceEditing committers with following JSDT Web issue: - IFacetedProjectWorkingCopy not disposed in org.eclipse.wst.jsdt.web.core.internal.project.ConvertJob.runInWorkspace

I'm not a committer on WTP SourceEditing, while JSDT Web code is actually based in WTP SourceEditing, so I cannot push anything there.

See the other question in "Any others?" section.

JavaServer Faces

Server Tools

  • Last week: Investigate bug 434185
  • Next week: Continue to work on bug 434185

WTP Source Editing

Web Services Tools



Any others?

Victor Rubezhny:

1) Could Roberto Sanchez please add the following issue into his TODO list:

  • Bug 461624 - Generate index.html in default Dynamic Web Project

2) There are issues in components that have patches but stay not reviewed (sometimes for more than a coulple of months). Some of issues are even assigned, so they aren't shown by "Untargeted bugs and enhancements with patches attached over 7 days old" report.

That's my examples:

  • WTP SourceEditing:
    • Bug 464161 - NPE in StructuredTextEditor.update (3091)
    • Bug 462949 - NPE in XMLJavaHyperlinkDetector.detectHyperlinks (238)
    • Bug 428812 - NullPointerException in JSPTranslator.createJSPProblem()
    • Bug 428057 - The annotation icon isn't shown for 'undefined attribute name' error in HTML Editor
    • Bug 417739 - XHTML 1.1 DTD is old?
  • WTP Common Tools:
    • Bug 445590 - Failed while invoking preset factory "org.eclipse.jpt.jpa.core". (err_grp: 6ed063d0)

That's only my fix proposals and I'm sure there are much more of such bugs. While Mars development comes to a close, these issues have a chance not to be fixed in Mars. Can we spend some time for review/accept/reject the fixes provided before M7 is closed?

Other business - Long term tracking items

  • Gerrit adoption
    • Projects should consider for improved contributor experience
