  • Please perform two types of smoke tests:
  • Zip File Test - please use the build from 2.0M4 Thu, 4 Jan 2007 -- 01:46 (UTC) with all the exact pre-reqs listed there (note, no JEM required, as we are now including a patched version for our M4).
  • Update Site Test - install the Eclipse Base, and all the pre-reqs first (from zips), and with that as your starting IDE, define a new remote update site with a URL of
  • License file issue that prevents update manager from installing JPA SDK. Other JPA issue with property files may be passable for M4.
  • Java EE found an issue with JEM reflection and Java5.
  • Feedback from component teams is that the zip builds look okay, but seeing issues with update manager, xerces problem. Component teams will investigate known issues, finish sanity tests and send an email to wtp-releng by 5 pm EST with a thumbs up or thumbs down vote. We will make a call about a respin at that point if there are fixes in hand. If you do release a fix to the build, please also mention that to wtp-releng.

Other business?
  • Suggestion from Raghu - Use wiki to track and list any changes which go into the builds during shutdown phase.

  • Java EE 5 Update - Chuck?
There is a wiki page established for people to follow along.
There are some open emf2xml bugs and patchs were submitted including test suites, which are being investigated. SAP proposed a model extension framework and there is a lot of interest in the emf2xml framework being expanded for the increasingly complex schemas.

  • Website Update - Bob F - The WTP homepage and top level pages for sub projects will be checked in next week, so please take a look.
