Main Agenda Items

WTP 3.14 for Eclipse IDE 2019-06

  • Java 12 Facet should be in in the latest builds as of this meeting.
  • New BLOCKER: 546640 Unable to deploy a new Dynamic Web project with JSF v2.3 created by Eclipse (on Glassfish)
  • For bugs that should be in the PLAN, use the "plan" keyword and a 3.14 or 3.14 milestone or release candidate target.
  • There are mentions of issues with installing and using the Glassfish Tools release on 2019-03. Still awaiting a response from Danny Ju about the status of the project and if these are real bugs.

Themes for WTP 3.14

  • Moving to EPL 2.0 (P2, but some will slip to 3.14M1)
    • EPL FAQ section on relicensing
    • Webtools branch of Nitin's clone has some changes that can help with updating file headers, even if files have been renamed or moved in the git history. Be sure to check the "Copyright tool" preference page once it's built and installed! It can be built using Maven or via exporting as a deployable plug-in from within Eclipse. A built snapshot can be downloaded and added to your dropins folder for use.
      • Check your repository histories for move/rename comments and update the Copyright Tool Git preference page's exclusions
      • Check the main Copyright Tool preference page for the default text to be inserted into unlicensed source files--it is still EPL v1.0 upstream.
      • Run the tool, check the changes (this will be affected by disk I/O speed, so use the fastest one you can). It should be writing the same output to the Console view as well as copyrightLog.txt in the workspace directory.
      • Take heed of anything in the Console output under "Retains a reference to an outdated license, EPL v1.0". Those were strings referencing EPL v1's URL, but not in the copyright comment.
        • With a lot of files to check for the Source Editing repo, I had to find a way to review them faster than through the Git Staging view. That ended up being the git cli. git diff within the local clone will show changes in a scrollable text UI. As with the less command, you can use the / key to enter a Regular Expression search string: ^diff (the beginning of line followed by "diff" followed by a space), which is how each file's changes begin. After pressing Enter/Return, tapping n will jump to the next regex match (meaning the next file), while N will jump to the previous one. This allowed me to flip through the largely identical changes pretty quickly, looking for incorrect indentations or other problems (e.g. "t" used instead of "*" in the copyright comment) as if they were breaking a pattern, much like a few random frames spliced into a film reel will stick out. These outliers I then corrected from within Eclipse, and in the case of test reference files that didn't have a notice on them to start with, often undid the changes to avoid tampering with the tests (ours often rely on specific character offsets in those files).
      • Update/replace the about.htmls (license notices) that refer to EPL v1.0, ideally with text from late November, 2017 or newer. Source Editing's wst/jst schemas plug-ins contained more than just EPL notices because of the third party content, so be sure you look through those carefully.
      • Recommended: adopt the shared license feature, version 2.0.0.qualifer, and you can remove the license key and text value from your feature.properties file. The build will use the license key from the license feature when it writes out the P2 metadata, so while you still need to refer to it in your feature.xml, you don't need to carry a copy of it in your feature project. Some features in WTP are already using the shared license feature, some are not, let's get it to 100%.

LSP4E Exploration

On hold pending resources (time). JavaScript+Web EPP package for 2019-06 expected to be based on Wild Web Developer.

  • Bugs at a glance
  • SimRel FAQ and Plan
  • Bugzilla naming: Put the simrel into the Version that's reported against, e.g. "3.12 (2018-12)" since that's filled in by reporters, but keep the Target Milestone simple as before (3.13, 3.13 M1, etc.) so that bug queries don't get too complicated for developers.


  • Schedule is for 13 weeks, 4 cycles per year:
    • one week decompress and plan
    • (3) three week milestones
    • one week RC1
    • one week RC2
    • one week quiet and release
  • We will meet once per Milestone / RC scheduled for 1 week before the candidate build day. Declare is 5 days later with the corresponding EPP 2 days after that, and official SimRel/IDE availability one day after that.
    • Dev meeting on 4/4, M1 candidate built on April 11, M1 declare on April 16
    • Dev meeting on 4/25, M2 candidate built on May 2, M2 declare on May 7
    • Dev meeting on 5/16, M3 candidate built on May 23, M3 declare on May 28
    • Dev meeting on 5/23, RC1 candidate built on May 30, RC1 declare on June 4
    • Dev meeting on 6/6, RC2 candidate built on June 6 if changes are PMC approved, to be declared on June 11
    • Release: June 19, 2019
