Focus on Backlog and Quality metrics (Neil)

Neil: Current focus item updated
  • Current Focus Item:
  • Options are
  • Target bug for a release or "future"
  • Mark as Invalid or Wont Fix
  • Upcoming Focus Item:

  • Past Focus Items:
  • Invalid - Enhancement does not fit with the scope of the project or is already implemented.
  • helpwanted keyword - This is a valid request, but due to committer resources and other priorities, outside help will be needed to make this happen.
  • Future - I would use this in conjunction with the helpwanted keyword. I use this for legitimate requests that are important but will not make any planned release, but likely will make a future release.
  • Before July 1st, 2007 - 21
Where did they all go?
Neil: wst.xml is leading in current focus item
Nitin: will look into them for next week

Teams Status and Focus for Coming Week

Source Editing

  • Ongoing triaging of incoming bug reports
  • Working on updating bug backlogs
  • Planning for M6

Server Tools

Web Services/WSDL

  1. Ongoing triage of incoming and existing bugs/RFEs.
  2. Fixing bugs and implementing RFEs.
  3. Planning for M6.

Java EE

Dali JPT


  • Planning for M3
  • Property Editor prototype
  • JSPX support investigation
  • XHTML support investigation


  • will soon remove wst common ui properties. See bug 131862.
  • will soon start signing all jars. Teams will have to be on the look out for performance problems, in M6. If any, it would effect those cases where custom class loaders are used, as that might result in repeated class



  • Branching Strategy
In general, the minimum is if you branch a plug-in to branch all the plug-ins in the corresponding map file. It is fine to branch everything if you choose as well. We may need to reorganize map files slightly and we can investigate that on a case by case basis. This is intended to be a living document and open to evolutions and improvements.
  • Instructions for tagging existing and new WTP wiki pages can be found at WTP's Category page; remember, we can create subcategories as well
  • This Week's Smoke Test Results
WTP Smoke Test Results R30
