  • Long awaited WTP book released!
  • Fun Quote of the Day - Gartner predicts, "By 2010, open source will be used in 80% of infrastructure software solutions."
  • Jess - WTP Europa Release Review went very well. Should be good to go for approval.

WTP 2.0

June 2007
Platform +1 WTP
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 - Complete!
  • Each component must run the eclipse copyright tool to ensure all files have a proper copyright. J2EE - Complete!
  • 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.
  • Updates to feature.xml's to pull in required dependencies. JPT - Complete!
  • Feature Realignment
Unfortunately, very late in the game, we need to change JSF features to comply with plans. JSF will now be a part of the JST features, except for the web page designer piece, which will be pulled out into its own feature.
This will impact adopters, but the proper mails and announcements have been done.
  • Testing
Do some install testing from the Europa Discovery Site
Try running WST without installing JDT!
Try installing everything from RC2 Europa and run through normal scenarios.
Be sure to also test with different features installed in different locations.
Open bugs on cross component bugzilla component under Eclipse if you see any issues when installing all of Europa.
  • A preview of the release New and Noteworthy is now available. Components should edit copy and update as needed. Please review and update or provide feedback by June 21st.

  • WTP Build Scorecards
WTP Component Scorecards
We will start maintaining a high level picture of WTP quality and stability across all components. The characteristics expected will be different based on whether it is a weekly, milestone, or release build. Please review and add any thoughts or comments via the wiki or by sending an email to wtp-dev mailing list.


  • Bug Lists
Bugs Fixed in RC2 (~78)
Bugs Fixed in all RC's (~166)


Due to the risk of regression we need to focus on testing (especially around recent fixes) and documentation. PMC approval will be correspondingly stringent for this phase of the release:
  • No last-minute enhancements or completion of function.
  • Bug fixes should have patches attached and be tested, reviewed, and risk-appropriate for this stage of shutdown. Please comment on the function affected and risk of regression.
  • Bugs will not be approved without review by the component lead. Component leads please add comments and use the bugzilla review flag when raising for PMC approval.
  • Bugs now require two positive votes and no negative votes.

Testing and Defect Verifications

  • Build Status
JUnits - All passing.
Smoke Tests - Please wait for a note from myself to start smoke testing the candidate RC3 "integration" build. We have some more fixes we would like to get in which are already approved by PMC. Deadline is 5 pm EST today.
Versioning issues compared with 1.5.4 - We still have plug-ins with different qualifiers and that need a service update. Please review the versioning report on the build pages.
  • Build Schedule - We will declare a weekly build tommorrow, Friday June 8th
The build this week will not be pushed to the downloads site
We need to shutdown for RC3 one day earlier than normal next week to declare on Thursday June 14th.

Working Groups

  • Java EE 5
JEE5 Test Scenarios
When opening related defects, add "JEE5-UC" in the Status Whiteboard

  • Website
Bob F - Looking for volunteers to test the RSS feed at and provide feedback. (Bug 190069) Would like to discuss promoting this URL as the new home of the Webtools RSS feed. Bob will send an email to wtp-dev asking for objections, and then will make the changes. Also working on the community resources page.

Other business?

David - If anyone still sees weird lock issues from CVS, please open a bug against the CVS component on Eclipse. Something like 20% of all commits may fail due to this.

Teams Status and Focus for Coming Week

Server Component Team

Datatools (RDB, 1.5.x only)

XML/JSP Component Team

  • Testing and fix verification
  • Updating tutorials (105989&181979) to match 2.0 UI
  • Growing our 2.0.1 items.
  • Brainstorming 3.0
  • Ongoing triaging of incoming bug reports

Web Services Component Team

  • WTP 2.0
    • Smoke tests pending.
    • 6 bugs for 2.0 + 10 bugs for 2.0.1.
      • 187843 - Under investigation.
      • 184299 - Documentation (no code changes).
      • 177421 - Fairly serious behavioral issue. Waiting for revised patch.
      • 186429 - Axis2 JSP validation performance issue is under investigation. Use of a workspace modify operation may help. Failing that, will likely have to be deferred.
      • 187840 - Under investigation, however, occurs at most once per Eclipse session in a specific sequence of Axis2 scenarios and can be worked around when it happens. Expect this will be deferred, and explained via New and Noteworthy / Readme.
      • 187920 - Test plan creation (no code changes). Initial test plan created, waiting for updates.

Java EE Component Team

Dali JPA

  • Testing and Fixing bugs for RC3



  • Investigating improving usage scans and test coverage reports
  • Running Performance and API tests
  • Move older builds to and ensure links are updated properly.


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

API Violations Review

Visit latest build for current API violations.
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?
