Regrets

Agenda

  • APIs for Transient Connection Profiles
    • Add one method to ProfileManager
    • public IConnectionProfile createTransientProfile(String providerID, Properties baseProperties) throws ConnectionProfileException;
    • All other ProfileManager APIs deal with permanent (i.e. non-transient) profiles
    • deleteProfile from ProfileManager could be retooled slightly to understand transient vs. non-transient profiles
    • another option is to simply add another property that indicates that a given profile is "transient". if such a profile is found when the ProfileManager is disposed, it gets discarded
  • Open discussion

Minutes

  • For new transient profiles, new method for ProfileManager
    • public IConnectionProfile createTransientProfile(String providerID, Properties baseProperties) throws ConnectionProfileException;
  • Revise the current API
    • public void createProfile(String name, String description, String providerID, Properties baseProperties) throws ConnectionProfileException;
  • to
    • public IConnectionProfile createProfile(String name, String description, String providerID, Properties baseProperties) throws ConnectionProfileException;
    • change it so it returns an IConnectionProfile instance
    • change it so that name and description can be passed in to be null
    • see if binary compatibility is broken with this change
  • ProfileManagerInitializerProvider issues discussed with Larry (Linda will create bug)
