WTP 2.0

  • Remaining Europa Timeline
March 2007 - June 2007
Platform +1 WTP
M7 - RC0 May 04 May 11 May 18
Europa Jun 29 Jun 29 Jun 29
  • Europa To Do's
  • Ensure all plugin manifests have execution environments specified - David to open bugzilla, each component needs to do this for RC0. Update?
  • Move WS bundles to orbit - Update?
  • Use signed plugin jars - This is not a requirement anymore, but we will still investigate.
  • Each component must run the eclipse copyright tool to ensure all files have a proper copyright. Update?
  • Component Leads - Take a look at the new New WTP 2.0 Plan document published by Raghu and make any updates for your component. The purpose is to have a good clear picture of what we achieved and what we wanted to acheive but deferred. Update?

  • April 6th - May 18th, WTP RC0

Declare WTP 2.0 RC0

  • Build Status
Please smoke test and update wiki to declare RCO I Build.
  • Component Leads: please update the exception section of WTP_2.0_Ramp_down_Plan_for_Europa with the relevant info and bugzilla numbers for exceptions to M6 feature complete.
  • API Violations Review - Repeated this week now that people have had time to digest. Any questions?
  • Background
The belief is the platform is solid and there is no need to fix, but in reality, when we move to the 3.4 base, that's when the platform is likely to make internal changes. So if we have internal dependencies, we may be broken out of the gate and lose time in M1. Also, make sure your plugin ranges are correct.
Action 1 = For any violation, open a bug to request API or fix code to not use internal discouraged access. An example is using images or labels from other plugins, these should be copied into your plugin. Also, using internal classes instead of the API interfaces.
Action 2 = If you do have a clean plugin of API violations/discourage access, switch prereq ranges wide so you can react to small version number changes without issue.
Action 3 = To be able to develop with discouraged access enabled, we need to update plugin's .classpath rules. Should we turn off defaults to expose all warnings to get a quicker resolution?
  • Known Issues
Investigatating possible issue with API violation scan reports with respect to DTP usage.

Teams Status and Focus for Coming Week

Server Component Team

Datatools (RDB, 1.5.x only)

XML/JSP Component Team

  • Finishing 2.0 contributions including new tests
  • Updating performance tests
  • Updating tutorials (105989,175052,181979) to match RC0/2.0 UI changes
  • Ongoing triaging of incoming bugs

Web Services Component Team

  • CQ IPzilla 1373 has been approved. Initial submission by WSO2 has been checked into CVS and in a WTP 2.0 build. This contribution includs the following RFEs:
    • 165664 - Integrate Apache Axis2 into WTP. This includes the following child RFEs:
      • 168762 - Create Axis2 bottom-up and top-down Java Web service.
      • 172186 - Create Axis2 Web service client.
      • 168765 - User-specified Axis2 runtime location.
      • 168766 - Adding Axis2 facet.
      • 168937 - Axis2 preference page.
  • Two new Axis2 Web services tools tutorials under the Web Services tutorials section:
  • CQ IPzilla 1374 Upgrading Axis 1.3 to 1.4 has been approved. Axis 1.4 JARs have been checked into Orbit. We are working on moving Web services tools to use them.
  • 176493 - Making the message / transport pluggable in WSE is targetted to RC0.

Java EE Component Team

Dali JPA

  • Dali Webinar presentation last Tuesday was well attended (41 total)
  • Continuing with bug and enhancement work for M7/RC0
  • Dali name-space change is complete, but is not in this weeks I-Build



  • Investigating improving usage scans and test coverage reports
  • Running Performance and API tests
  • Stay tuned for a suggested generic WTP project level compiler setting to add to every project


Known Issues
  • Switch the 2.0 performance tests baseline to be the latest 1.5.x
  • The XSD and WSDL tests are not running. Adding them causes the suite to hang. Needs investigation.
  • The baseline test needs to be rerun each week to eliminate false "hiccups" in performance.
Action Items
  • Improve the UI readability and cohesiveness of the output result pages
  • Improve the actual tests. Why do some take so long? Why do some results fluctuate? Why do some have 160% performance degradations? Are the tests even still valid?
  • Allow committers to reliably and efficiently run perfomance suites in the workspace before checking in code
  • Add JSF and JPA performance JUnits


  • This Week's Smoke Test Results
WTP 2.0 Smoke Results Page
Information about process for milestone bugzilla line item planning has been added to the WTP Bugs, Workflow, and Conventions document.
PMC Candidate Review Request Checklist - See the updated PMC Review document with attention to the "How To Prepare a PMC Defect Candidate" section
WTP 2.0 Ramp down plan - Please note the early API freeze and shutdown dates.
Adopter Migration Information for WTP 2.0 - Please add any details for your component.
