[KWS] Milestone/Release Candidates

Need assistance for generating the preliminary Milestone/Release Candidate API for JAX-RS, EJB, JSTL, and JSF. Once these are complete, then we could do a Milestone/Release Candidate API for the Platform and Web Profile.

  • Waves 0, 1, 2, and 3 have completed their API updates
  • Wave 4 is missing JAX-RS
  • Wave 5 is missing EJB, and JSTL
  • Wave 6 is missing Faces
  • Wave 7 is missing Platform and Web Profile

Kevin volunteered to update the Platform APIs with the Milestone/RC APIs for the Jakarta EE projects.

[IG] Compatibility Certification Request for JEUS 8.5 Looking for some Platform team assistance in reviewing and approving this request

[KWS] Compatible Impl and TCK effort and getting ready for June release

  • Bill and I are concerned about the CIs
  • Steve is a bit more concerned about the TCKs
  • Steve has allocated a full-time engineer on Glassfish (yeah!).
  • Still looking for a Glassfish Release Plan kickoff from Payara and Fujitsu
  • Initial plan record is here
  • Tanja asked about when we would have a better idea on what the real date is… I replied that end of March looks like a good date-for-a-date guess…

[AG] Decoupling and modernizing TCKs [see: mail thread]

  • Goal 1: Decouple TCKs (like CDI, BeanVal, and MicroProfile) for easier development and testing of specs
  • Goal 2: Use a test framework that is more widely known by the community. Proposed: JavaTest → Arquillian+JUnit
  • Demo: [<5min] Current proposal with JSON-B TCK tests
  • Andy walked through a short presentation and showed the necessary test code updates. He also demo’d how the tests are executed.
  • Bill requested a POC that shows how this new style of testing (CDI, BV, JSON-B) could be utilized with the current TCK execution. This could demonstrate how this work could be done on a per-project basis instead of a big-bang requirement. Andy will work with TCK experts to see whether this is doable.
