Subject Re: [DISCUSSION] Geronimo 3.0 Release
Date Wed, 31 Aug 2011 07:28:29 GMT
Questions about the target of 3.0 final:
1. Is Java EE 6 full compliance still the goal of G 3.0 final release?
2. do we still want to maintain two assemblies both with java ee 6

>From the tck results, the jetty assembly is kind of far away from java ee 6
