Subject Minutes: JDO TCK Conference Call Friday, Oct 13, 9 am PDT
Date Fri, 13 Oct 2006 16:24:39 GMT
Attendees: Michelle Caisse, Martin Zaun, Craig Russell


1.  Test challenge status: All challenges have been resolved. No  
escalations have been filed yet. Only one issue was resolved as  
invalid (hollow should be a permitted state after attaching a  
detached instance). Patches were created for the others and a new  
workspace was created to hold the updated TCK tests.

2.  Proposal for new method to get a ThreadLocal PM: Some good  
feedback was received. No one really objects to the ThreadLocal PM,  
but concerns were raised that this might not be sufficient for all  
purposes. More work needs to be done to see if this really is very  

3.  Proposal for alignment with JPA: This proposal to position JDO  
PersistenceManager and PersistenceManagerFactory with regard to JPA  
was well-received, with just a few comments. Another proposal to  
create interfaces that extend both JDO and JPA interfaces had some  
discussion with more needed.

4.  Other issues

We're pretty close to finalizing the contents of a maintenance  
release of JDO 2.1. AI Craig notify aliases and seek additional input.

A new test case was written for checking the TargetClass of an  
instance of a persistent interface acquired by pm.newInstance(Class  
interface). The test passes on JPOX.

Action Items from weeks past:

[Sep 1 2006] AI Matthew: look into a cleaner separation for object  
model vs. mapping annotations. AI Craig  check into default handling

because the test case fails on JPOX.

[Apr 14 2006] AI Craig: update the roadmap for JDO. In progress.
