  • See Equinox wiki page for information on addition of a second executable, eclipsec.exe, on windows to allow the OS to allocate a console.
  • JEE Schemas finally included in WTP 2.0 plugin org.eclipse.jst.standard.schemas

WTP 1.5.4

  • Build Status
Please finish all critical/blocker bug fix verifications before we declare 1.5.4
John will send a note asking for component sign off on 1.5.4 tommorrow
David is working on getting the update site ready to roll
Versioning issues? None.
  • David will update the newsgroup with declaration note, bugs fixed, and send info Bob F to update the news section of website.

WTP 2.0

March 2007 - June 2007
Platform +1 WTP
M7/RC0 May 04 May 11 May 18
RC1 May 18 May 23 May 25 1 PMC +1's
RC2 May 25 May 30 June 05 1 PMC +1's
RC3 June 08 June 13 June 14 2 PMC +1's
RC4 June 15 June 20 June 21 3 PMC +1's
Europa GA June 29 June 29 June 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.
  • Move WS bundles to orbit - Done and smoke tests look good.
  • Use signed plugin jars - This is not a requirement anymore, but we will still investigate.
  • Each component must run the eclipse copyright tool to ensure all files have a proper copyright. Good progress, will check back on JSF, J2EE, and server tools next week.
  • Component Leads - Please update the exception section of the WTP 2.0 Europa Ramp Down Plan with the relevant info and bugzilla numbers for exceptions to M6 feature complete.
  • Bugzilla process changes (in progress, stay tuned)
  • Use review flag for component lead review
Committer puts the component lead under review flag with a "?"
Component lead switches review flag to "+" or "-"
  • PMC flag
This will only affect PMC members, who will instead of voting with text of "+1" in a comment, will use the "PMC_approved" flag with a value of "+" or "-". Business as usual for committers who will still put the "PMC" into the whiteboard which will be updated to PMC_approved as appropriate. Please remember to add as CC for all PMC bugs.

Declare WTP 2.0 RC0

  • Build Status
Platform M7 declared this week. EMF and GEF M7 next week.
Please smoke test and update wiki to declare RCO I Build.
JUnits all passing.
  • RC0 New and Noteworthy - Nitin to start the new and noteworthy process for RC0 for those components who added new function.
  • API Violations Review - Cannot underestimate the importance of this in the stability and quality of WTP as a platform. These numbers are embarrassingly high. Each component needs to really get someone focused each week on improving these numbers and opening API requests.
Action 1 = For any violation, open a bug to request API or fix code to not use internal discouraged access. An example is using images or labels from other plugins, these should be copied into your plugin. Also, using internal classes instead of the API interfaces.
Action 2 = If you do have a clean plugin of API violations/discourage access, switch prereq ranges wide so you can react to small version number changes without issue.
Action 3 = To be able to develop with discouraged access enabled, we need to update plugin's .classpath rules. Should we turn off defaults to expose all warnings to get a quicker resolution?
  • Known Issues
Investigatating possible issue with API violation scan reports with respect to DTP usage.

Working Groups

  • Java EE 5 Carl sent note about new API's for getting JEE5 models for read. Stay tuned for more detailed doc from Chuck.
JEE5 Test Scenarios
When opening related defects, add "JEE5-UC" in the Status Whiteboard
  • Axis2
Axis2 1.2 support will be added next week.
Today’s Eclipse webinar, Introduction to Web Services Tools in WTP, presented by Andrew Mak and Kathy Chan is now available from Eclipse Live.
  • Website
Bob F - Pheonix conversion of people pages complete, see bug 183225, maybe run by for review, redirects will go in if no one resports any problems.
To get news items in, either send Bob a note or open bug against "website".

Teams Status and Focus for Coming Week

Server Component Team

Datatools (RDB, 1.5.x only)

XML/JSP Component Team

  • Finishing 2.0 plan items
  • Updating tutorials (105989,175052,181979) to match RC0/2.0 UI
  • Reviewing performance tests
  • Ongoing triaging of incoming bugs

Web Services Component Team

Java EE Component Team

Dali JPA

  • Continuing with bug and enhancement work for M7/RC0



  • Investigating improving usage scans and test coverage reports
  • Running Performance and API tests


Known Issues
  • 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
  • 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


  • This Week's Smoke Test Results
WTP 2.0 Smoke Results Page
Information about process for milestone bugzilla line item planning has been added to the WTP Bugs, Workflow, and Conventions document.
PMC Candidate Review Request Checklist - See the updated PMC Review document with attention to the "How To Prepare a PMC Defect Candidate" section
Adopter Migration Information for WTP 2.0 - Please add any details for your component.
