Bug and Feature Highlights

Focus on Quality

  • Improve:
  • Triage:
  • Target to a specific release or "future" if planning to fix but not in the next release
  • Adjust severity as appropriate

Release Bug Review

Bugs targeted to WTP Luna

Blockers, Hot-Bugs, Hot-Features

Blocker and Critical
Hotbugs [2]
Hotfeatures [3]
Hotfeatures - triaged with helpwanted

Project scrum section

  • Each project answers
    • What are you working on?
    • What are you planning for next week?

WTP Common Tools

Dali Java Persistence Tools

WTP EJB & Java EE Tools

JavaScript Development Tools

JavaServer Faces

  • This week: Feature License, CBI Test failure
  • Next week: CBI

Server Tools

  • This week: Fixed bug 431970, 432580 and 432788
  • Next week: bug 433928

WTP Source Editing

Web Services Tools

  • This week: not much
  • Next week: 433929- Update the Web Services license features to 1.0.1 for Luna


  • This week: Opened bug 433700 to address the Eclipse license update issue, updated build prereqs
  • Next week: Declare M7
  • Found workarounds for some build issues by setting "org.eclipse.sdk.ide" or "org.eclipse.jst.enterprise_sdk.feature" as dependencies. Not ideal but gets us moving forward if there is no time to investigate more specific dependencies.


Any others?

Other business - Long term tracking items

  • Historically - WTP hasn't published an endgame "plan" - but this Endgame plan from the platform is a good reminder of testing/planning activities that is appropriate for your projects.
  • Time to review Help documentation - We were late publishing last year, with almost no updates. - We will publish on time this year, and should update stale, outdated content. - Please review.


  1. Our plan dates are on 'Friday' of the week. But, we produce and test the build on Thursday of the week, and ideally declare on Thursday. The dates in the Google Web Tools group calendar are for 'Thursdays' since that's a calendar for committers. We give ourselves the buffer to Friday, as our "public" date, that others can pick up our build, just in case a regression is found on Thursday and we have to respin and retest. [Technically, some might say, we still have till the following Tuesday or Wednesday for some "Simultaneous Release" due dates ... but it's hard to do much in that window, without disrupting everyone ... so we'll not use that buffer, except for the worst emergencies.]
