Posted by Antoine Sabot-Durand on Nov 18, 2013 | Comments

The goal of this 1st meeting was to organize the MR launching, and start discussing its content The following people assisted this meeting :

  • Pete Muir (pm)

  • Mark Struberg (ms)

  • Jozef Hartinger (jh)

  • Joseph Bergmark (jb)

  • Arne Limburg (al)

  • Antoine Sabot-Durand (asd)

Proposed Agenda

The following agenda was proposed by asd

  1. MR proposed roadmap

  2. Content of the proposed list

  3. Try to have a 1st decision on big tickets (tickets with great impact on implementation or spec)

    • CDI-377 : automatic JSR-330 annotation processing problematic

    • CDI-370 : Expand @RequestScoped and @SessionScoped to account for WebSocket

    • others

Proposed Roadmap

As we should run the MR in 60 days and that we cannot change its content after its start we proposed the following roadmap

  • 16th Dec - list of issues complete

  • 6th Jan - Maintenance review starts

  • 7th March - Maintenance review ends

  • 21st March - Maintenance ballot ends

This roadmap integrates the holidays constraints as well. It’ll be confirmed after the meeting pm and asd will have with the Java EE spec leads/Oracle on 11/26

Content of the proposed list

asd stressed on the fact that the long proposed list won’t probably fit in the MR but that would be nice to provide them a status. We decided to deal the most important ticket first.

list of tickets

CDI-377 : automatic JSR-330 annotation processing problematic

All the participant agreed that this ticket could be quite tricky. 2 scenario for solving it

  • Having an umbrella scanning mechanism : beyond CDI and off course the took note of escalate this need to the JCP

  • in the meantime could investigate an exclusion in beans.xml. this solution is to be explored and if we have an agreement we could provide a fix in MR scope

CDI-370 : Expand @RequestScoped and @SessionScoped to account for WebSocket

A tricky issue as well. No one in the EG has a sufficient knowloedge of websocket sepc to statute ont in so pm propose to ask help to Matthias Wessendorf

Other tickets related to @RequestScoped clarification
