  • Friday is a holiday in Canada.
  • Interesting discussion about possible removal of remind and later resolved states - 178923.
  • Take a look at the new New WTP 2.0 Plan document published by Raghu and make any updates or changes.
  • The common component now has a new lead: Konstantin Komissarchik.
  • Wiki conflict resolution is here!

WTP 1.5.4

04/05 - M-build released
04/19 - RC1 released
PMC will only approve stop-ship bugs during the last two weeks of 04/19-05/04

  • Build Status
Please smoke test latest build to declare as the M Build this week.

WTP 2.0

  • Remaining Europa Timeline
March 2007 - June 2007
Platform +1 WTP
M7 - RC0 May 04 May 11 May 18
Europa Jun 29 Jun 29 Jun 29
  • Europa To Do's
  • Ensure all plugin manifests have execution environments specified - David to open bugzilla, each component needs to do this for RC0. This is about half done. Stay tuned for more info.
  • Move WS bundles to orbit - Pushed back to RC0 to mitigate risks to M6 stability


  • Build Status
Please smoke test and update wiki with approval to declare M6
Kate needs to redrop for a doc change. We also need to respin for a common.apache.logging packaging issue with Axis. Other teams do not need to wait for this respin to smoke test.
  • New and Noteworthy
The webtools/development/news/2.0M6 folder has been populated by starter files.
Committers should post their writeups or alternately attachments can be made to 179645.
We need this ready for Friday when we declare M6.
  • JSF Changes described in the new and noteworthy for M6
Existing JSF Web applications require manual migration steps outline in the new and noteworthy
Is the build note that is there still valid? Don't think so.
  • Externalized String Bugs
Please take these as a high priority. We want adopter products to be able to easily and confidentally translate WTP.
  • Adopter Breakages
The adopter usage scans are updated to show more meanigful results and will soon be run for every build to give more immediate feedback.
Open bugs against releng if you see issues with any of the tools.
  • Bug Lists
Bugzilla Enhancements Targeted for 2.0 M6 (0)
2.0 Resolved, Unverified (~199) SSE=56,Server=49,Dali=25,J2EE=14
2.0 Verified, Not closed (~0)
2.0 Remaining Targeted M6 Defects (~1)
2.0 Targeted Blockers, Criticals (~2)
2.0 Untargeted Blockers, Criticals (~0)


  • April 6th - May 18th, WTP will have a shutdown and fix milestone called RC0. JPA will have an M7.
April 2007 - May 2007

Declare WTP 2.0 RC0

  • New function
Only permitted to JSF and JPA, and on a case by case approval basis from the PMC.
  • Exceptions to M6 Feature Complete
  • We will create "list of known exceptions" by M6 release (4/6), and send to cross-project (or planning?) list. And we'll state explicitly that others after this time (if required) will be handled by PMC approval process in bugzilla. The purpose of this increased review is not to limit committers efforts or creativity, but instead for stability and to keep everyone well informed (both inside and outside the project).
  • Component Leads: please update the exception section of WTP_2.0_Ramp_down_Plan_for_Europa with the relevant info and bugzilla numbers.
  • Copyright Tools - Let's plan to run the eclipse copyright tool to ensure all files have a proper copyright before we declare M6.
Amy - There are two versions of the tool, regular and advanced. The regular only works with the IBM copyright, so if you want to use a different copyright you need to use advanced. It did a good job of ignoring files which already had copyrights.
  • Bug Lists
Bugzilla Enhancements Targeted for 2.0 RC0 (~20)
All Remaining 2.0 Targeted Enhancements (~45)
2.0 Invalid Targeted Defects <RC0 (~50)
2.0 Hot Bug Requests (~0)
2.0 Hot Bugs (~0)
2.0 Remaining Targeted RC0 Defects (~30)
2.0 Total Bugs Fixed (~301)
2.0 JPA Total Bugs Fixed (~48)
2.0 Targeted Bugs (Graph)
All Remaining 2.0 Targeted Bugs (~232)

Performance Tests

Known Issues
  • Switch the 2.0 performance tests baseline to be the latest 1.5.x
  • The XSD and WSDL tests are not running. Adding them causes the suite to hang. Needs investigation.
  • The baseline test needs to be rerun each week to eliminate false "hiccups" in performance.
Action Items
  • Improve the UI readability and cohesiveness of the output result pages
  • Assign component lead ownership to the specific test suites
  • Improve the actual tests. Why do some take so long? Why do some results fluctuate? Why do some have 160% performance degradations? Are the tests even still valid?
  • Allow committers to reliably and efficiently run perfomance suites in the workspace before checking in code
  • Add JSF and JPA performance JUnits

All API Requests (9)

Working Groups

  • Java EE 5 - Chuck - The goals below are attainable and progress is being made. Import/Export will not make M6, but will drop in RC0 with approval. Naci will update the scenario in a few days based on status and feedback.
JEE5 Scenarios
  • Priorities:
  • Runtime support for JEE5 modules - If we have a JEE5 module (Web 2.5/EJB3/EAR) we should be able to run it on servers (Tomcat/Geronimo/Glassfish). Having the server adapters ready to support these modules will also be important, especially for EJB3 and EAR5.
  • JEE 5 Model extensibility - This issue has been addressed by Chuck.
  • Editing and Tools support: I do not believe our editors(and tools like wizards etc.) will be ready to have full JEE5 support by 2.0.

  • Axis2
Kathy - No update. Still waiting on legal approval.

  • Website
Bob F - Just getting back after relocating to California. Conversion of Dali pages should be finished soon.
