EclipseLink Development Process

The development process for working on EclipseLink is based on the agile development process Scrum. In a nutshell, a prioritized backlog is created and kept up to date using input from the community. The task list is the work that is done in a Sprint, organized by component.

Features and Enhancements

Features and Enhancements will have a BugZilla enhancement associated with it. A functional specification and design document will be created for each each feature. A review of these docs will be initially done by mailing list (eclipselink-dev@eclipse.org) and by meeting if followup is required. Prior to code being checked in, code reviews will be done through the mailing list (eclipselink-dev@eclipse.org).

Bugs

Docs are usually not required for bug fixes. Prior to code being checked in, code reviews will be done through the mailing list (eclipselink-dev@eclipse.org).

Todo:

  • A way to query on what bug#'s correspond to the code checked into the nightly/milestone label so we can view the diffs as a transaction (individual diffs are available via SVN-update).
