From Craig L Russell <Craig.Russ...@Sun.COM>
Subject Minutes: JDO TCK Conference Call Friday, Jan 9, 9 am PDT
Date Mon, 12 Jan 2009 21:38:38 GMT
Attendees: Michelle Caisse, Richard Schilling, Michael Bouschen, Craig  


1.  Enhancer specification text. A few last issues:

a. Can you specify a class name or only the file name (path) of a  
class? The advantage of having file and directory names is that it  
reinforces the fact that the enhancer works on the byte codes, not  
classes. The advantage of class names is usability for some use cases.  
So what exactly are the use cases?

b. Can you specify resources vs. files: What is the use case for  
specifying a resource name instead of a file or directory name?

c. Should the setOptions API be called setNonstandardOptions? If only  
nonstandard options are in the list, this might make it clear that the  
standard options are not going to be found here.

d. Enhancement on the fly is enabled by Java 6 instrumentation. How  
can this feature be exploited? AI Richard look at Java 6 feature and  
discuss on dev alias.

e. Must metadata come from exactly the same location (e.g. jar file,  
file system) as the class to be enhanced? The metadata Chapter 18  
already specifies a search order for metadata. Should this description  
be used for the enhancer as well, with the addition of how to  
translate parameters into a metadata search list? And should the  
context class loader or just the class loader passed to the enhancer  
be used to find metadata files?

2. Other issues
