Subject SNAPSHOT dependencies in Geronimo 3.0
Date Mon, 05 Apr 2010 12:43:48 GMT
Ok, the completed email that I accidentally sent out earlier.

Since we're targetting an M1 release of Geroinimo 3.0, we need to be 
taking a close look at the snapshot dependencies we have in the 
release.  Here is what I believe is the complete list of current 
snapshot dependencies.  We have way fewer external snapshot dependencies 
than I actually believed, so this might not be too bad, even if we need 
to release some of these from external.  It helps a little that we're 
already using released versions of OpenJPA and jetty8.

Here's a breakdown by category:

non-Geronimo controlled releases:

Tomcat 7 (which we currently have an external release for because we 
have some patches that have not be accepted by the Tomcat community), 
openejb, pax logging, xbean, myfaces, and felix.

It should be easy to push out an xbean release, openejb just had a 
release, and might be reluctant to push a new one so soon after the last 
one.  I'm not sure if the latest release can be used for Geronimo or 
not.  I suspect not, since there has been a bit of recent work on 
getting openejb to run in 3.0.  myfaces and pax logging I'm not sure 
about.  Does anybody have connections to these communities strong enough 
to ask about a release?  What is the current state of the felix and 
karaf projects?  Would it be possible to get new releases in the next 
couple of weeks?

Another big category is Aries, which is currently attempting to put out 
their first release.  There's a good chance this will happen in time for 
the 3.0 milestone release.  This is probably the biggest dependency, 
since a major goal of this milestone is to get feedback on the OSGi 
application features.

And finally, we have one servicemix bundle dependency that's in snapshot 
state.  Hopefully, we can get a release pushed for this.  As a fallback, 
we could just add another subproject to geronimo-bundles to cover this.

Geronimo specs:

We need new releases of almost all of these to pick up the new OSGi 
support.  We probably should put these up for a vote by early next week 
at the latest.   Do we need to have a separate vote for each spec, or 
can we do a group vote on this?  Also, the javamail uber jar will need a 
release vote.

Geronimo components:

We need releases for connector, transaction, and jaspic.  In taking a 
look at these, I discovered that these jars a building using the java ee 
5 versions of apis and providers (e.g., stax, jaxb).  I suspect these 
really should be upgraded.  Also, the dependencies tend to be non-bundle 
versions of a lot of the jars.  I suspect these should really be using 
the bundle versions.

Geronimo bundles:

The framework has bundle versions of a number of common components.  
This is part of the Geronimo build tree, and thus these are not released 
separately.  However, these bundle versions look like they should be 
getting used in other places (e.g., components, possibly xbean).  This 
seems to argue that they should be moved out the geronimo tree to 
possibly components or maybe their own top-level tree as peers to 
components/external etc.

Here is what I believe is the current list of snapshot dependencies.

Tomcat:   7.0.0.0-SNAPSHOT.  This is a version build in the geronimo 
external, so we release this largely concurrent with the server release.
openejb:   3.1.3-SNAPSHOT:  I believe we've had some patches and 
modifications above and beyond the most recent openejb release.
xbean:  3.7-SNAPSHOT:   The Geronimo community controls the release of 
this.
transaction manager:  3.0-SNAPSHOT :   Under the control of the Geronimo 
community.
pax logging:  1.4.1-SNAPSHOT:   I'm not sure what the release procedures 
are in the PAX community or how often they make new release available.
myfaces:  2.0.0-SNAPSHOT

Felix:
     main
     bundlerepository:  1.5.0-SNAPSHOT
     karaf main:  1.5.0-SNAPSHOT
     karaf console:  1.5.0-SNAPSHOT
     karaf client:  1.5.0-SNAPSHOT
     framework:  2.1.0-SNAPSHOT

Aries:  all at 0.1-incubating-SNAPSHOT level
    org.apache.aries.jndi.core
    org.apache.aries.jndi.url
    org.apache.aries.jmx
    org.apache.aries.blueprint
    org.apache.aries.blueprint.api
    org.apache.aries.blueprint.core
    org.apache.aries.blueprint.cm

All of the Geronimo specs have new versions, which can be released prior 
to creating the new release.  To the best of my knowledge, all of these
are in a state where they can be released.

    Also the geronimo-javamail_1.7_mail bundle needs to be released.
