Looking for input on the schedule’s doability (dates, content, vacations, etc)
Do we need another Milestone for Java 11? Just an idea, communicate thoughts via mailing list.
Ed volunteered to compare Jakarta EE 8 APIs with Jakarta EE 9 APIs just to ensure that we’re only introducing API changes that are expected.
Ed asked about communicating the need for final Specifications before the final TCK and CI are ready. Or, at least communicate that the TCK and CI can continue to evolve after the Specification document is finalized. Kevin will communicate this aspect.
EF vacation plans for first week of August
Ivar will touch base with Kevin to define coverage for the meetings.
Thiago submitted a question about an application server supporting a native image (GraalVM)
Dmitry welcomed the effort, but warned that it may be a difficult task.
For example, CDI (as currently defined) relies on a dynamic, late binding processing. This is difficult to achieve with a native image.
Gurkan asked about the future maintenance of Glassfish. For example, would Glassfish 5.x or 6.x be maintained after the major Jakarta EE releases?
The Glassfish development team should be brought into this discussion, probably via the Glassfish dev mailing list.
Gurkan asked about how to become a committer on the Glassfish process. Ivar and Dmitry volunteered to help him out with this process.
The glassfish.org domain
https://glassfish.org now redirects to https://eclipse-ee4j.github.io/glassfish/
Ivar will check with EF webdev team if we can set up at proper DNS record to be able to deep link to e.g. glassfish.org/download
