    • Jimmy to send out updated slides (please link here, Jimmy, as part of the email reduction act of 2008 ;-)
    • Discuss updates to the two current state slides
    • Discuss the future state slide:
      • We need to decide when / if the Domain will return.
      • We need to determine a realistic timeframe for supporting multiple Brokers for scalability / performance considerations. I get asked this question a lot from the transactionally-intensive products...
      • What is our position vis-a-vis WSDM / WEF for future releases?
  • Followup on logging (Hubert Leung) COSMOS_Logging
  • Followup on locale after collecting CA & CMDBf input (Sheldon Lee-Loy) How should COSMOS set locale information



  • Hubert went over his design document
  • We will clearly need multiple logs, as data managers will be in multiple locations
  • Hubert presented multiple alternatives for logging and externalization
  • Mark indicated he would like a clear recommendation of which approach COSMOS will use across the board
  • Hubert said the tooling should use the Eclipse approach for logging
  • Hubert said the framework code should not do its own logging, but rather should throw well formed exceptions that clients will handle and log
  • Hubert will update his document with a strong statement of the conventions we will use
  • This effort of implementing logging is targeted for i11


  • Sheldon talked to CMDBf group
  • CMDBf group indicated that there isn't any support yet for i18n
  • They have plans to add this in a future revision
  • Question was whether we can implement our own locale support in our data managers
