From Craig L Russell <Craig.Russ...@Sun.COM>
Subject Minutes: JDO TCK Conference Call Friday, Mar 24, 9 am PST
Date Sat, 25 Mar 2006 01:26:00 GMT
Attendees: Michael Bouschen, Michelle Caisse, Martin Zaun, Craig Russell


1. Test status (Michael) 1239 test cases; 2 errors, 4 failures; 4 of  
57 configurations fail. Still an open issue on JDO-273 to update the  
life cycle for serialization with an active transaction. AI Martin  
fix the lifecycle tests and update the JIRA issues with the latest  
results. JPOX has issues with lifecycle and newInstance 

2. New tests status (Martin, Michael, Craig) Martin has one more test  
case to write: PMF close. Craig is still working on the datastore  
mapping for identity vs. sequence for primary key generation.

3. JSR 243 next steps (Craig) Assertions spreadsheet needs to be  
updated to reflect the new tests. New and updated TCK tests need to  
be finalized, and then we can cut the release branch. You can see the  
latest changes at http://svn.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi/db/jdo/trunk.  
JPOX is preparing a 1.1.0-rc2 for early next week, with the final  
1.1.0 release scheduled for next Friday. The final artifact-id is  
expected to be jpox-1.1.0.

4. Other issues (any and all)

Craig has instructions on creating a release, and will add a wiki  
page with the instructions in case anyone else has an itch to make a  

Need to resolve serialization of a detachable instance for durable  
storage. AI Craig: propose a solution for the specification.

Action Items from weeks past:

[Mar 17 2006]  AI Craig: review EG discussion on JDOHelper   
constructor vs. newInstance(). Done. "There's no state in a JDOHelper  
instance so there's really not much of a reason to use a singleton  

[Mar 17 2006]  Remaining  issue: datastore identity strategy is  
currently defined as IDENTITY  but some datastores don't support  
IDENTITY columns. AI CraIg: propose  a solution. In progress

[Mar 17 2006]  For the persistence manager newInstance(Class) method,  
what should  the implementation do for abstract classes or interfaces  
that contain  abstract methods other than property accessors? Answer:  
throw an  exception. This might happen during enhancement. This needs  
to be  clarified in the spec. AI Michael: file a JIRA. AI Craig:  
update the change log. Done.

[Feb 24 2006] One of the query tests fails. JDO-310 DERBY-39 for     
details. AI Craig: Can we  get some help on this from the Derby    
team?  Craig asked at the team meeting. AI Craig: follow up.

[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. Done. Martin will start   
with the code that  Michael W updated and will update the test case   
not to fail on the  first error.

[Nov 18 2005] AI: BEA to sign the donation paperwork for their test    
suite. Review how to merge their test cases into JDO TCK. The   
latest   news in BEA is that BEA plans to donate their object   
persistence   engine to open source; it's not clear where they will   
do this,   perhaps in Apache as a sister project to Apache JDO.  
BEA's  OpenJPA is  currently under consideration in the Apache  
incubator, so  the  integration work might be facilitated once this  
is resolved.

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

[Sep 2 2005] AI: To recruit members, update the web site. Articles   
on  TheServerSide directing attention to the site. T-shirts, logo.     
AI:   Craig write a ServerSide article.

[July 29 2005] AI: Michelle Chapter 18 wiki needs to be updated to    
include all JDO metadata elements and attributes.
