Agenda and Minutes (30 min call due to PMC at bottom of hour)

Jakarta EE 9.1

  • TCK and GF status
    • JDK 8 Full Platform still passes!
    • JDK 11 is getting more attention, some TCK issues + GF issues.
      • App client container failures, certificate failures.
      • GlassFish runs on JDK 11, passes its internal tests
      • TCK Test failures should be reported in the GF issue tracker
  • EJB test references to PortableRemoteObject#narrow?
    • Vote happening on EJB Dev mailing list
  • EJB test references to CORBA.ORB?
    • Eager vs lazy loading of references
    • Only (Corba) optional tests can still reference the CORBA.ORB class (to avoid CNFE on eager classloading JVMs).
  • Based on current status, it is likely that the release date will be pushed out to April

Develop release roadmap for 2021 (versions, quarters)

  • Q1 goal of 2021 Program plan

  • Deferred to next call
