Need to investigate re-enabling these tests for M5. We will publish these results with every weekly declared build.

The Extension Point Usage Reports are also posted. The instructions for adopters on how to contribute can be found here.
Stay tuned in 2007 for automated test coverage report numbers based on using TPTP's line coverage analysis tools. Also investigating cross referencing the data from the usage reports to detail where test coverage must be improved.

Common Component Team
Server Component Team

Dali JPA
  • SDK build has been fixed with much effort by Tran and David
  • Final step is to get Core tests passing and integrated into the build, at which point all of Dali will be integrated
  • Made final decisions on UI direction for 1.0. Approach is similar to .5, but with semantic differences and more direction on how it will work with an editor in the future
  • Neil will be out until January with his new baby girl. Karen Moore will be generally available to cover as needed.
M4 build has a functional Visual Page Designer
