Carl: First, the Java EE 6 plan - Chuck do you want to talk about what we've accomplished, and what's left?
Chuck: There are things that are proposed, but not committed- we need to go through the plan again.
Chuck: Carl - the models were supposedly done in M3, but did you do more for M4?
Carl: Mostly the model factory for Connector. Also, the LabelProvider for Connector is currently broken. Kaloyan- your team has maintained that in the past, can that be fixed for M5?
Kaloyan: In M5, I am not sure we can help a lot. We are closing down a release cycle. Perhaps in M6.
Carl: OK, going down to the flexible modules- Rob, Chuck?
Rob: The breakage today- I changed the module's name to be the deploy name, for display purposes. The unit tests are checking that and expecting the full name. I think the unit tests were being overly protective.
Angel: Need to check w/ Tim about that.
Rob: (Explained the basis behind the change.
Angel: Can you put that into a note or a bug?
Rob: Yes. (Another lengthy explanation of the problem) Admittedly, the suffix change might cause breakage. But as long as we don't change the module IDs, we should be fine.
Chuck: Let's hold this off for M5. Obviously this is a bad time for breakage.
Rob: Yep, that's fine.
Chuck: We still have a few cases to work on for the Module Assembly.
Rob & Chuck went through the remaining to-dos for the Module Assembly - see bug 290041
Chuck: Rob, are you working with Jason on the single root stuff? It seems like both of you are working in the same area.
Jason: Rob and I had a discussion about the VirtualComponent changes on Tuesday, and Jason P. and I discussed it on Wednesday.
Rob: I will work on this some more, and hope to have a patch ready tonight.
Carl: Should we have a separate agenda item for this for the calls?
Chuck & Jason: Yes.
Jason: I was hoping to target this for M5.
Rob: I was planning to write tests first to make sure things work, and then as we add pieces, we re-run the tests to make sure nothing broke.
Jason: And the deployed name stuff runs right into this, too.
Chuck: M5 is pretty agressive.
Jason P: I definitely think we should look at using the IArchive code for the Output Container piece. I would like to work w/ you on the output container and the single root.
Carl: Kaloyan, do you want me to run the smoke test today?
Kaloyan: If it is not too late for you. Otherwise let Dimitar know, and we can do it on our Friday.
