Planning

  • Project Leads: See subproject plan documents under standard-project-plans\indigo\
  • Tip while writing Planning document: be sure to use '&' in place of merely '&' in URL queries
  • Initial Planning document by M2
  • Iterate/Review plans by M3
  • Final Plans by M4


Themes

  • improve Java EE 6 support
  • e4 (Eclipse 4.1) tolerance (no exploitation of non compatible function planned)
  • Objective is to work with both Platform 3.7 and 4.1 (with only one set of compiled code ... compiled against 3.7)
See briefest Eclipse 4.0 intro. One thing I forgot there, was a pointer to e4-dev mailing list ... that's were Eclipse 4.0 builds are currently discussed, announced (in addition to e4-only topics).


Other Candidate Themes?

Anyone interested in these? Resources available? Do they cross projects, or just enhancement to one or two?

  • Maven enablement support (at least make more friendly for maven users, if not direct support)
  • OSGi enterprise support
  • Any items from "top 10" list of problems to focus on. deadlocks? performance? modularity? api? test coverage?
  • ... ?

Schedule

8/13 WTP M1

9/24 WTP M2

11/4 WTP M3

Other business

  • Do we need a feature patch in webtools/helios/repository for bug 321602. Is it a blocker? (in effect) Is it a regression? (since which release?)
Is a regression since Galileo ... just not noticed in Helios initial release. Starts to effect performance with as few as 3 or so projects. Will investigate.
[No action yet]
  • Final? status of archived repo: I did separate code and tests repositories, zipped repos now distinct.
