WTP Progress

David was unable to attend this meeting and sent status for WTP. Currently he is working on:

  • signing JARs
  • restructuring Xerces bundles
  • adding quite a number of other WTP related third party JARs
  • finished adjusting WTP builds to use Orbit produced map file (haven't released changes into production yet, still testing)


There are questions surrounding the org.apache.xerces bundle and the other XML-related bundles in Orbit. Discussions to continue at EclipseCon since most people will be there.
