From Michelle Caisse <Michelle.Cai...@Sun.COM>
Subject Minutes: JDO TCK Conference Call Friday, Jan 5, 9 am PST
Date Fri, 05 Jan 2007 18:37:47 GMT
Attendees: Michelle Caisse, Michael Bouschen, Matthew Adams, Craig 
Russell, Martin Zaun

1. api2-legacy.jar
Michael hecked in updates for license headers. Craig is working on 
non-JDK1.5 changes in API, close to finished.  Then api2-legacy and 
(maybe) tck2-legacy workspaces can be branched off and will continue to 
work in a Java 1.3 or 1.4 environment.

2. Current DB time feature
This is still under discussion. Craig suggested adding a method to 
PersistenceManager using a Calendar. How this would be implemented is 
unclear.  Feedback from experts is required on whether it is possible in 
all cases to get timezone information from the server. Insufficient 
feedback on the need for a query language syntax to handle dates. If 
someone needs this feature they should provide some input for the 

Action Items from weeks past:

[Oct 27 2006]  AI: Matthew add comment to JDO-403 regarding split   
between JDO and ORM annotations..

[Sep 1 2006] AI Craig  check into default handling to accommodate   
different defaults for annotations (?) based  on context. In progress.

One idea is to use Strings for properties instead of boolean or int.  
This allows "default" to be a valid value, but requires a bit more  work 
in the annotation handler and doesn't provide for compile-time  checking 
of the values.

[Aug 11 2006] AI Craig propose some semantics for behavior if user   
tries to add to a list where the ordering element is incorrect.

[Jul 14 2006] AI: Erik document 220 annotations that don't have a    
corresponding JDO concept.

[Jun 23 2006]  AI  Martin look at what Hibernate and TopLink support   
for Enum types. In progress.

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

[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.
