Discussion channels on Slack [KWS]

  • #jakartaee-tck ( )
  • #jakartaee-platform ( ??? )
  • We had previous complaints about Slack channels not being searchable.
  • We cannot do official communications on Slack channels
  • Only use Slack for informal conversations
  • Searchable mailman mailing lists?
    • Question for Eclipse: Ivar
    • Supposedly, there is a search mechanism (but may not be as reliable as we would like or need…)
    • Need an Issue for EF to track a better search mechanism
  • Invitation link to “Jakarta EE Development” workspace:
  • might be an alternative to Slack, but it is a single large “team” across all of Eclipse
  • Check with EF about a paid subscription to Slack…

Jakarta EE 9 Milestone Release in June ??? [KWS]

  • Too much work left for GA release in June
  • But, what about an M1 (Milestone) release in June?
    • Shows the tremendous progress we have made
    • Provides a “platform” for stack products and frameworks (IDEs, frameworks, etc)
    • Better understanding of where we sit for GA in the fall


  • Steve M (Glassfish) agrees that a Milestone release would be good
  • Tomcat 10 has already started Milestone releases in support of Jakarta EE 9
  • Many of these “stack products” can make progress today with the APIs themselves
  • Scott M (TCK) - how much of the TCK needs to be passing before we release a Milestone? Certain TCK tests? Or, some percentage of passing?
  • Kevin- would prefer to just document the current state of Glassfish and TCK when the Milestone is released (Cesar)
  • Content ?
    • Updated APIs
    • Updated Schemas on web site
    • Updated Platform and Web Profile Spec
    • Updated Component Specifications?
    • Updated Glassfish
    • Updated Component Compatible Implementations?
    • Updated Platform TCK
    • Updated Component TCKs?


  • Early versions of TCKs normally reflect the updates that are being done in the Specs
  • Collecting component Specs, TCKs, and CIs (milestones) is a good idea
  • Need to pick dates towards end of June (development dates, marketing dates, etc)
