WTP 2.0.1

  • WTP 2.0.1 - We will not officially branch to a maintenance stream until 2.0 is declared. For now, you can use your own private branch for 2.0.1 or 3.0 work because we want to keep head pristine as well, just in case we need to rebuild a plug-in and so we can tag all plugins with a 2.0 version before branching. Instructions on branching to follow, not sure if we branch all or branch as needed.
WTP 2.0.1 will be a Europa coordinated maintenance release, but they have not released that schedule as of yet.

Other business?

Teams Status and Focus for Coming Week

Server Component Team

Datatools (RDB, 1.5.x only)

XML/JSP Component Team

  • Europa testing and fix verification
  • Updating tutorials (105989&181979)
  • Growing our 2.0.1 items and trying not to work on our 1.5.5 items.
  • Brainstorming 3.0
  • Ongoing triaging of incoming bug reports

Web Services Component Team

  • Tested on Europa (just install JST/WST, install all).
  • FVT testing almost complete.
  • Will update known limitation section and Axis2 tutorials.
  • Ongoing triaging of incoming bug reports. Defering bugs to WTP 2.0.1.

Java EE Component Team

Dali JPA

  • Testing, Testing, Testing



  • Running Performance and API tests


Known Issues
  • 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

API Violations Review

Visit latest build for current API violations.
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?
