TM 2.0M6 Testing

  • TM 2.0 M6 Testing
    • MUST use Eclipse M6
    • Will do a new test candidate every day, with a note what changed compared to the previous one. Start each morning with testing, fix bugs in the afternoon. Cronjob will build a new candidate over night. (Plan approved)

Bugs and open work to be discussed

  • General Info
    • Will need to make some API work in the M7 time frame. Try to have not too many of these, though.
    • Others will need to be deferred to post-2.0. Looks like we'll probably have TM 3.0 next year rather than TM 2.1. Will discuss in the Monthly meeting tomorrow
    • Fixing functionality has priority over API this week!
    • Reference Platforms: Solaris-Motif to be discontinued

  • Major and other important bugs
    • Open Major,Critical,Blocker bugs
      • (defer M7) Encodings - Kushal, DaveD; mostly BIDI issues (logical vs. visual data); will need ICU, probably some ICU updates; and similar for USS on zSeries
      • (M6) Copy&Paste, Collapse, Wizard Properties - DaveM: ssh was OK also with multiple files, perhaps an FTP issue?
      • (M6) Collapse - probably related to 143458 (Kushal) Refresh changes selection
      • (try M6) Programmatic Expand - Martin (Jobs, Async Callbacks)
    • (defer M7) 180313 Restore only a single connection on restart
    • (M6) 180091, 170916 (Kushal) EFS --> AI Kushal M6, do handle operations
    • (try M6) 173042 (Martin) Option to avoid deleting children and keeping collapsed state on Refresh --> probably defer
    • (M6) 175686, 180692 (Martin) Bundling for CVS, Discovery - / feature.xml changes for Europa

  • NLS bugs
    • (M6) 164413 (Kushal) Removing Default System Type Combo? - Note it is currently storing Labels instead of Names/Ids! --> Captures on Apr 6th and another one; user docs captured separately
      • DaveM: Sometimes next to a "New Connection" combo
      • DaveD: Remove the Combo for M6, but leave the NL Strings in there for now
      • AI Kushal Remove the Combo, but leave NL Strings
    • (defer M7) Renaming Team View --> Profiles View? - AI DaveD to investigate; discuss on next meeting
    • (defer M7) 154508 (DaveM) User Docs for SSL --> Reassign to DaveD?
    • (defer M7) 143412 (DaveD) User Docs for where passwords are stored
    • (defer RC) DaveD Chkpii to get rid of unused Properties? Unused Strings in messages.xml? - chkpii does not do this; do not clean them up now, better leave extra ones in

    • (done, review) 180575 (DaveM) supportsDeferredQueries - Patch from Martin attached -- (done; probably some stuff rejected, AI Martin to review
    • (M6) 180562 (DaveM) "implements" for constants only --> AI Today
    • (done) 180651 (DaveM) Martin's recent "internal" ones -- (done)

    • (defer M7) 168975 (DaveD) Events in ISystemRegistry --> not yet looked at; M7 or later; view mechanism of "originating view" to be removed - fair bit of work; model change events should be signaled to headless
    • (M6) 180642 (DaveD) testframework.scripting internal - AI DaveD today
    • (M6+) 179184, 177332 (DaveD) Persistence Provider: ok for M7 -- want to get in before IBM products migrate
      • DaveM: For Migration, specify persistence providers that only allow import
      • DaveD: In WDSC, people are creating profiles themselves
    • (M6+) 180485 (Kushal) Showhidden as View Preference - suggestion included -- Kushal agrees; what to do with the filters? -- Kushal started, M6; FilterReferenceAdapter, override public Object[] getChildren(IProgressMonitor monitor, IContextObject contextObject); Add API for SubSystemConfigurationAdapter.applyViewFilter(IContextObject parent, Object[] children);
