Subject Re: Towards a new release and baselining support...
Date Wed, 13 Nov 2013 15:15:43 GMT
Hello JB,

Thanks for the heads-up, and good luck with Karaf 3.0.0! If you have some time after that,
could you please also look at a couple of “old” issues still on your name and decide what
you want to do with those?

Greetings, Marcel

but I’d like to get everbody’s opinion and check if there are things we forgot about that
really need to make it into a new release.

enable support for baselining. Baselining will give us a lot of tool support to ensure our
code (bundles and exported packages) is semantically versioned. To leverage baselining support
there are a couple of things we need to do:
>>  * We need the to start putting @ProviderType and @ConsumerType annotations on all
our APIs. In fact, we need to “retrofit” this to our 1.0.0 release to ensure the baselining
works correctly. These annotations are not magically available, but we can add them to the
global build path (cnf/ext/defaults.bnd).
>>  * We need to keep a copy of all released bundles (the latest version of each) in
a repository to baseline against. Because we don’t want our build to break when we’re
off-line I propose we put them in a local repository. We probably need to build those artifacts
with the Eclipse compiler to prevent problems that will otherwise occur because of differences
between ecj and javac so: checkout with Eclipse, build, collect all bundles from "generated"
folders and publish them into the releaserepo in cnf. We also want to add them to the -deps
artifact so people can easily get started with a release with baselining enabled.
