Implications of Security Manager Marked for Deprecation in Java SE 17


  • Discussion:

    • Most likely just some minor configuration changes for running some of the TCKs
    • For EE 10: Warn that next version of EE will deal with the Security Manager
    • Authorization and Authentication specs are most likely the only specs really affected - TODO: create issues for this in the spec issue trackers
    • When we want to run the EE 10 TCK on 18 and later, changes are anticipated (a service release most likely needed to solve this)
      • Discussion on

[EJ] Semantic versioning APIs to announce whether there are major or minor or no changes in the corresponding APIs.

  • Create (see an example here) in the API packages
  • Using semantic versioning plugin bnd
  • Tooling to ensure that rules of semantic versioning are followed
    • Only in the class files to help the tooling (class retention annotations are runtime invisible)
  • Potentially an issue with the signature tests?
    • Since the annotations are added in the actual API jars, there should not be an issue with the signature tests
  • Is it ok to introduce a dependency to org.osgi.annotation.versioning.Version ?
    • What if the meaning of the annotation changes at a later stage?
    • Suggestion to create a Jakarta version of the OSGI version annotation(s) to have complete control over it?
      • Put them in the Jakarta Annotations project?
      • All other specs would then depend on Jakarta Annotations, or
      • Produce the artifact from e.g. the Platform project
      • No specification, just a well-documented “Build tooling project”
    • Or, use the org.osgi.* annotations?
      • MicroProfile use this tooling with success today
      • Marlow: TCK signature test could check specifically for org.osgi.* annotations that are not retained at runtime.
  • OSGi Semantic Versioning Whitepaper:
