(anyone have some last minute Agenda items)

Review of Work since last call

Mobile Tools for Java Device Support

There is an ongoing discussion about "Extension Points to register devices", see: http://dev.eclipse.org/mhonarc/lists/dsdp-mtj-dev/threads.html#00788

How this relates to the MADK:

  * The proposed "discovery and download" of vendor SDK's could use this mechanism to register devices which are supported by this SDK.
  * Without such a functionality, the MADK has no "official and documented" API to perform this functionality.

Members of the EMIWG are encouraged to review and participate in this discussion on the MTJ mailing list.

As a side-note: This proposed Extension Point will modify the API of MTJ, and has possible impact on a 1.0 release schedule. There is a risk that with current resources in MTJ project this change cannot be included in Galileo train release.

Evaluation of alternative Eclipse Packaging mechanisms

Contacted Ian/Doug/Bjorn at the Foundation to find out details about the Eclipse Packaging Project. According to Foundation, the code is currently not in active development. Plans to re-activate project in spring timeframe.

When further investigating, it seems the EPP project had a different focus, and would actually create packages OF Eclipse, not FOR Eclipse.

Most promising avenue is currently using straight P2 Mechanism, see more at:

 * http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_UI_Use_Cases
 * http://wiki.eclipse.org/Equinox_p2_User_Interface
