Announcements And Special Reports

This was the last call before the XQDT 2.2 release.


Eclipse Transition

  • David talked also about WTP build system. He tries to set up an Hudson build for XQDT.
  • David explained how releases work in Eclipse
  • David wanted to understand how the JSON library is used in XQDT (the answer is: for the Zorba debugger. Zorba has its own debugger protocol which uses JSON. A proxy is used to adapt this protocol the DBGP that is implemented in DLTK)
  • discussions about the migration of to other Eclipse sites. will be kept as a blogging solution for the community (this means making it accessible to anyone)

Bugs / Issues

  • For the XQDT 2.2 release we still need to correct:
    • the infinite loop parser problem: the string lexer loops forever then "& is detected
    • found problem in language level (ML vs. Zorba). Some ML code does not parse correctly - Sam will send Gabriel a detailed example.
      • Gabriel could not reproduce the problem

Development Status

  • Sam performed some XCC library refactorings to eliminate dependency to other 3rd party code.
  • Gabriel added the support for the Java-based XQuery interpreters.
  • Gabriel not ready for the 1 Oct release which might be delayed a couple of days.

Future Plans

  • Gabriel
    • works on some XQDTCodeScanner issues before the release
    • will fix the "& parser bug
  • (INHERITED FROM LAST WEEK) Sam still works on the Built-in Helpers and Docs infrastructure. (See: the "Future Plans" section in XQDT 2009-09-23)
  • the XQDT editor color scheme was raised. As a conclusion, we will adhere to a standard eclipse scheme and also provide users other schemes (used by other editors). No concrete plan yes for doing this.
