  • Component Plans
Action Item for Component Leads to target their proposed bugzilla line items for M6 by end of day, Wednesday Feb 28.
How should we capture this proposed plan information, knowing it will be dynamic as the milestone progresses?
At the beginning of a release, all proposed bugzilla's should initially be targetted to the release, i.e. "2.0"
During the planning week for each milestone, bugzilla enhancements for that milestone are targetted accordingly to the current milestone, i.e. "2.0 M6". This is to avoid long term planning and over promising unrealistic commitments.
At the first status call for a milestone, we will review the proposed line items from each component.
At any point in the milestone we can gauge an accurate picture of the happenings and plans for the remainder of that milestone.
  • Hot Bugs
As we enter M6, "hot bug season" is upon us, so please urge adopter companies to not be complacent about their bugs, but to proactively ensure they are targetted appropriately and to raise as hot bugs when necessary.
  • Bug Lists
2.0 Remaining Targeted M6 Defects (~42)
2.0 Hot Bug Requests (~0)
2.0 Hot Bugs (~0)
2.0 Targeted Blockers, Criticals (~3)

Working Groups

  • Java EE 5
Basic support for JEE 5 underway (facets, delegates)
Waiting on plan from Chuck for publishing the extension API
  • Axis2
Kathy - IP legal approval is still ongoing so line items have been deferred to M6. However there is axis 2 runtime support and are just ironing out issues for the EclipseCon demo's. Check out the Axis2 Integration in WTP wiki for details.
  • Website
Bob F - We are live on the Phoenix look and feel! Please file bugs or enhancements on component 'web site' if you encounter problems or if you need anything before EclipseCon especially.
Working on communit resources now as well as the new and noteworthy's for M4 and M5.
We can close original bug to migrate website to php.
Helping JPA set up a php expert to migrate their webpages, will help other teams if they want. Raghu will enlist help for JSF.

Java EE Component Team

We fixed various regressions for WTP 2.0 M5: ejb facet install delegate for version 3.0 tries to access ear descriptor generating emf EList$BasicIndexOutOfBoundsException - get EMF exceptions when J2EEDeployableFactory tries access ear edit for projects of version 5.0 - right clicking on a ejb project (facet version 3.0) causes an incorrect ejb-jar.xml to be created
Working on JEE 5 Scenarios - to be released soon
