From Craig L Russell <Craig.Russ...@Sun.COM>
Subject Minutes: JDO TCK Conference Call Friday, Feb 3, 9 am PST
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2006 18:01:55 GMT
Attendees: Michelle Caisse, Martin Zaun, Michael Bouschen, Michael  
Watzek, Matthew Adams, Craig Russell


1. Test status (Michelle) 1154 tests, 4 failures, 2 errors.

2. Attach/detach tests (Matthew) no change. In fact Matthew will need  
to attend to some personal business and won't be working on these  
tests for a couple of weeks. Volunteers can take the code that's been  
checked in and work on it.

3. Other issues (any and all)

- Release plans. We plan to cut a release at the end of the month.  
Everything we fix in JIRA should be marked as fixed in rc1. Michelle:  
we should do some formal release testing for rc1. AI Michelle propose  
a release test plan and start a wiki page.

- Martin checked into the NoClassDefFoundError thrown during  
Class.forName. The result is that JDO implementations should catch  
not only ClassNotFoundException but in general LinkageError. Any of  
these Throwables should mean that the class does not exist. This  
issue came up during resolution of a name in a JDOQL query. The JDO  
implementation should use "class does not exist" to indicate that the  
name is not a class. JDO-194 has all the details. AI Craig: update  
the bug report and add a new test method for this condition.

- JDO-246 variable in the query result. AI Craig: update the issue.

- JDO is in the "incubator" category in JIRA. It should be in the  
"db" category. AI Craig: send a message to infrastructure to fix this.

Action Items from weeks past:

[Jan 20 2005] Debugging the regression we notice that some of the  
foreign keys in the Company model have generated names which makes it  
difficult to resolve the source of a key constraint violation.  
Schema0 through schema4 are affected. AI: Michelle to fix the schema.  

[Feb 3 2006] AI Michael W fix list of teardown classes in company  
model reader. JDO-285. But this fix cannot be checked in until JPOX  
is fixed.

[Jan 20 2005]  AI Craig look at new life cycle tests to see if it can  
fail at the end printing failure messages. AI Craig review the spec  
updates to make sure the test is consistent. AI Craig: resolve the  
test case and spec issues.

[Jan 20 2005]   AI Michelle update the JDO releases page to point to  
mirrors for download. AI Craig check in the released beta artifacts  
to the JDO maven repository (create a new releases directory parallel  
to trunk and branches).

[Jan 13 2005] AI Martin look at the enhancement tests for  
completeness (JDO-64).

[Jan 6 2005] AI: Michael: need to add a public static final field in  
a public class to test fully qualified class name static field in query.

[Dec 23 2005] Query tests (Michael B) Looking at JDO-194 errors on  
Windows that don't happen on Linux. Might be a JRE bug. AI Martin  
file a Java bug so we know that there is a Java issue.

[Dec 23 2005] Fetch depth discussion: The spec needs more information  
than is there in the PFD. AI Craig get more jdo experts involved in  
the discussion. In progress.

[Dec 9 2005]: Nontransactional write semantics appear to differ  
between optimistic and datastore transactions. Is this intentional?  
AI: Craig discuss with expert group. Done. It is intentional.
[Dec 2 2005] Inheritance 3 fails. Optimization of inheritance 1 where  
there is no  table for abstract classes. JPOX doesn't support it. AI  
Craig:  discuss this mapping with expert group. It might be an  
optional feature.

[Nov 18 2005] AI: BEA to sign the donation paperwork for their test   
suite. Review how to merge their test cases into JDO TCK.

[Nov 4 2005] AI Martin: Update Martin's wiki with discusion of JDK   
1.5 issues. in progress

[Oct 14 2005] AI: Michelle distill the mapping support that JPOX has

include all JDO metadata elements and attributes. [not done]

April 15 2005] AI: Brian Topping will do the maven goal for creating
