Bjorn has not finished getting David's software to run for Europa (Bjorn's fault, not David's). Thus there are not staging bits to test whether we're getting all the depdendencies and features correct yet. Everyone said that they have their bits ready, but we cannot test the integration without Bjorn doing his part. Bjorn will schedule another call in a week or two to try the discussion again.
Additionally, Bjorn has also not updated the instruction pages for how to incorporate your project's bits into the Europa collective build.
ACTION: (Bjorn FB) Get the integrator code working.
TPTP, EMF, and Java 5
Hubert brought up that EMF 2.3 requires Java 5 and that TPTP 4.4 might not work with Java 5. The EMF and Java 5 issue was discussed at length at previous Planning and Architecture Council meetings attended by both representatives of EMF and TPTP ,. It should not be a surprise that EMF 2.3 requires Java 5. Nick also explained that the run-time continues to work with 1.4 so Java 5 is only required if a model is re-generated.
ACTION: (Bjorn FB) Have a phone call with Sri regarding this issue and report back to the Europa team via the mailing list.
(Added by Bjorn after the call.) One of our collectively determined requires for Europa participation was participation in these conference calls (under the rubric of "you have to participate to participate") and yet nobody from Mylar or STP has attended either of the first two calls. Food for thought.
Additionally, it is important that the people who attend the call be knowledgable and able to take action. These calls are for raising and solving problems but if the people on the call are not able to answer questions about their projects nor able to take issues back to their teams, there's really not much point to the calls, n'est pas?
