Europa Information

Community feedback has not been great to say the least, please actively embrace the community and respond to queries.
  • Please continue to contribute to the release notes page.
  • Some orbit bundles are duplicated, with the larger ones coming from the platform because they are signed. The ones from WTP are unsigned and smaller.
  • Here is our current WTP 2.0 Release Scorecard
  • The SDK versions are not available from the Europa update site.
  • A new and fixed 'Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers' package is available for download.
  • The is the most downloaded Europa package to date.
  • Install sizes:
Megs Installed Components
45 Eclipse Platform
58 XML (and XSD, DTD) includes +5 meg of prereqs (part of EMF, GEF)
70 WST (non-Java Web Development), no new preq-reqs
116 JST, includes 19 Megs of prereqs: JDT + more EMF
128 JPT, includes 10 Megs of prereqs (Datatools and EMF SDO)

WTP 2.0.1

  • Schedule (Proposed)
July 20 M Build
Aug 03 M Build
Aug 17 M Build

Sept 07 RC1 (PMC approval 2 votes)
Sept 14 RC2 (PMC approval 2 votes)
Sept 21 RC3 (PMC approval 2 votes)
Sept 28 2.0.1 GA

  • Are we clear on branching policy and strategy? Apparently not.  :-) Result of discussion is we will table branching until we have the 3.0 plans in place. Note that JPT has already branched.
All the JST and WST stuff that was part of WTP 2.0 was tagged with a version of R2_0_0. Similarly, JSF and JPT with R1_0_0.
The releng project is branched to R2_0_maintenance, and JSF and JPT are branched to R1_0_maintenance. Please use these branches for your associated plug-ins, respectively.
Investigate not showing web service access errors, David?
Investigate adding section for know bugs and limitations from investigations into access warnings.
  • Build Status
JUnits - J2EE investigating issues with 400 new JUnits added.
No declared build this week. We will start declaring 2.0.1 builds bi-weekly next Friday.

WTP 3.0

  • Requirements - For information on gathering and defining the requirements for this release, see the WTP 3.0 Requirements Wiki. The goal is get more input and earlier in the cycle than happened in WTP 2.0. The intent is for this to be iterative so that each milestone we are adding and removing as is realistic.
July 17th - Target for publishing the top down major themes with input from the Eclipse Council and the overall structure of the WTP 3.0 Requirements document.
Then components take bottom up approach aligning line items and enhancements in bugzilla with themes. We will review the requirements each meeting in July to keep everyone informed and to come to a general consensus. If any additional discussions need to take place we will have those groups take off line.
July 31st - We will sign off on component leads input and take forward for community review.

  • Jetty Adapter
Jan Bartel, Webtide LLC at is planning to contribute a Jetty adapter through the additional server adapters option.

Teams Status and Focus for Coming Week

Server Component Team

Datatools (RDB, 1.5.x only)

XML/JSP Component Team

  • Working on fixes for 2.0.1 and 1.5.5.
  • Brainstorming 3.0
  • Ongoing triaging of incoming bug reports

Web Services Component Team

  • Working on fixes for 2.0.1 and 1.5.5.
  • Ongoing triaging of incoming bug reports.

Java EE Component Team

Dali JPA

  • Branched releng and code base for maintenance
  • Checked in several 1.0.1 patches
  • Planning for Dali 2.0



  • 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

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?
