New Stuff

  • bug 240991 Startup creates Display on Worker Thread
    • DaveM: RSEUIPlugin.start() is not on the Main thread! Seems to be reproducable when Eclipse is "Restarted" rather than "Started". Issue is hit because Logger is instantiated from RSEUIPlugin.start(), registers Preference / ModelChangeEvent, which leads to DaveD's workaround for bug 227750 to fail
    • Martin: How is the backtrace (Restart) created? Even the intended fix (using a non-UI IRSEInteractionProvider) would not fix this
    • Uwe: Swing/SWT Integration? Is any plugin directly using Bundle.loadClass? That's dangerous since it changes the startlevel
    • Martin: Could instantiation of the Logger be deferred from RSEUIPlugin.start() to somewhere else (later)?
    • People are concerned about using Display.getDefault() -- using IWorkbench.getDisplay() is recommended instead (or, use PlatformUI.isWorkbenchRunning())
    • AI DaveM Comment on Bugzilla what is done in the debuggee to get the backtrace on StartLevelEventThread (Martin cannot reproduce)
    • AI DaveM Try to instantiate the Logger later, or at least try deferring addition of the ModelChangeListeners
    • AI Martin Write the real fix (interaction providers) mid August
  • bug 240998 Extension Point for User Actions
    • Kevin: EP used to add compile commands -- will eventually want to get rid of this extension point, will look at workarounds - AI Kevin mark bug as INVALID or WONTFIX
  • bug 238574 Website Revamp
    • AI Martin ask the Community (Remy, Nick)
  • Unittests
    • Martin added "soft disable" capability for Unittests -- when writing new tests, please add the if(isTestDisabled()) return;
    • Multi-Target: RSEFileStoreTest and FileServiceTest;
    • Xuan: Kevin trying some Abbot stuff, might contribute -- Abbot is under CPL
    • AI Martin New build driver -- deadline Jul/31
    • Xuan: Want to release themselves
      • AI Martin Add M-build Cronjob for Tue 0600 Ottawa time
      • Relengtool: Download
      • AI Xuan Release yourself - Process: Select plugins to release, right-click > Team > Release Be sure to not release inconsistent stuff, i.e. fixes that depend on other stuff that you're not releasing
    • bug 230917 [regression] Some DStore Archive Testcases fail -- AI Xuan look at
    • New Build System due Jul 31 (AI Martin)
  • Findbugs and other cleanup
    • Broken Links in Docs: Xenu's LinkSleuth
    • Xuan: DVT, bug 240940, bug 240972 high priority fixes - AI DaveM address
  • 3.1 Plan
    • Martin marked some bugzilla items with "plan" keyword
    • AI Everyone attach "plan" keyword to "interesting" i.e. larger or important bugs, until end July
    • DSDP presentation to the Board on Sep 17, IBM wants to review the draft, AI Martin check, AI Xuan check deadline
