Current Work

  • DSDP/TM/Face-to-face Meeting Toronto 17-Sep-2007
    • Confirmed Toronto Mon/Tue Sep 17/18 (+Wed half day)
    • DaveD confirmed, Javier and Martin confirmed & booked flights
    • AI DaveM talk to Pete Nicholls for a room 6-10 persons Mon Sep17 - Wed Sep19
  • Unit Tests / TPTP AGR
    • Xuan adding more test cases for copyBatch()
      • Martin's advice: do small tests with small data if you can;
      • For large data, generate it on the fly (e.g. create 2000 files of 2 meg size each)
      • Fuzz testing: have a random number generator; in case it fails, save the files on which it failed and/or the Random number seed
      • Platform Core Tests: AI Martin direct Xuan to Symlink test
    • Xuan knows now how to change the daemon port and avoid the UI popup
    • Calling ISubSystem.internalResolveFilterString() worked slightly different in test than interactively - related to earlier supertransfer issue: when doing unit test, there is no cache whereas interactively there is already a cache
      • To work around: query the parent of archive first (in order to get the cache), then query the archive itself
  • bug 193329 First Column in Table View
    • Martin: PropertyDescriptor quirks -- filling PropertyView differently than Tableview -- AI Martin to look at it
  • Bugzilla:
    • Bugzilla 3.0 deployed - Saved Searches: Userprefs, import RSE open with patch, TM Hi-Pri, TM Review Requested
    • Pls dont forget setting the contributed kwd when setting a bug with a contributed patch FIXED
    • Wiki: Template notation for bugzilla bugs, see Eugene Kuleshov's Blog
    • tm-log.csv: Pls edit in text editor; or refresh after using Excel
    • Severity Major, hi-priority
    • DaveD:
      • bug 197937 AbstractSystemWizardPage: SystemMessageLine in title area of wizard dialogs, fix OK?
        • DaveD: broadcast the change to IBM RSE Users and didnt hear back - ok to go ahead
        • For certain error messages, IBM writes two levels of text (error itself, and procedure for fixing the error); but that's not being used in wizards; this feature is embedded in the SystemMessageLine construct
        • In other dialogs which do have a SystemMessageLine, this may be important; would need at least a procedure that allows getting the 2nd level text
        • AI Martin review whether AbstractSystemWizardPage did have a 2nd level access control before; but Dave not too concerned about it for the case of wizards
      • bug 194802 Persistence issue reported by Greg Watson: UI/Non-UI
        • DaveD has 1 more week before going on vacation; wants to address hi-pri issues before leaving (substitute: Xuan?)
      • bug 197036, bug 181939 All filter pools created on startup - lazy loading - likely to go to Future
    • DaveM: bug 196632 FTP Passive Mode Setting: Dont create PropertySet in the Constructor AI DaveM add the attachment AI Javier review and apply the patch
      • bug 196662 Refresh on Dispatch thread could be tricky since already in the event handler -- getObject() is there since the adapter has no exists() method; Service level API works different for missing parent directory on dstore and ssh
      • bug 196664 Refresh does too much work
    • Kevin: bug 187735, bug 194867 SystemView vs. TableView refresh issues
    • Javier: bug 197758 FTP classify symbolic links: API change or bug fix?
    • Martin: bug 197178 (CDT) Discussing Adapter Loading (we do it synchronously in Activator.start() of the Core plugins which is problematic)
    • Xuan: bug 191374 SSH Performance on large directory - fixed

  • Javadoc Reviews: @since tag for new API, missing @param tags, ... can be fixed now for RSE since we are rebuilding just about every RSE plugin for 2.0.1 (except discovery, terminal, remotecdt, tests right now)
