Subject [Struts Wiki] Update of "StrutsActionRelease200" by TedHusted
Date Mon, 15 May 2006 00:16:17 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Struts Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by TedHusted:
http://wiki.apache.org/struts/StrutsActionRelease200

The comment on the change is:
Add release plan for SAF 2.0.0

New page:
= Struts 2.0.0 Release =

== Info ==

1. Struts [http://struts.apache.org/releases.html#Releases Release Guidelines]

2. [http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/SigningReleases Signing Releases]

3. Apache [http://apache.org/dev/mirrors.html Mirroring Guidelines]

== Release Manager ==

The release manager is '''Ted Husted'''

== Special Issues ==

The Struts Action 2 framework is based on the Web``Work 2.2 codebase. Essentially, Struts
Action 2.0  will be the technical equivalent of Web``Work 2.3. (The Web``Work2 codebase was
accepted into the Struts project through the [http://incubator.apache.org/projects/webwork2.html
Apache Incubator].) 

For SAF 2.0, the core goals are to repackaging the codebase as an Apache Struts product, and
to provide migration resources for SAF 1 and WW 2 developers. A few legacy API elements will
be removed, and a few new features will be added. 

The SAF 2.0 release is following the [http://wiki.apache.org/struts/StrutsTi Struts Ti Proposal].
SAF 2.0 is phase 1 of the proposal. A subsequent SAF release series (either SAF 2.1 or SAF
3.0) will address Phase 2 of the proposal.

SAF 2.0.0 is targeting August 2006 as a relaxed release date.

See also StrutsAction2.

== New Features Under Consideration ==

This initial list of new features is taken from the [http://wiki.apache.org/struts/RoughSpot
Rough Spots page].

 * Distinguish between the published public versus private APIs. (See Rough Spot #4.)
 * Deprecate or remove the Around``Interceptor. (See #7.) 
 * Simplify Text``Provider. (See #15.)
 * On the OGNL value stack, rename #request for request parameters and #requestAttributes
for request attributes. (See #17.)
 * Eliminate "do" clause for Action alias lookups. Scan Actions at load time for known aliases,
and fail fast. 
 * Review exception handling. Some are still being swallowed rather than rethrown. (See #20.)
 * Reduce or eliminate need to use fully-qualified class names, over and over. (See #23.)
 * Work with OGNL to add Java 5 support. (See #31.)
 * Address the confusing issue of the validation/workflow lifecycle and different methods.
(See Patrick #4.)
 * Work with OGNL to make it a clear superset of JSTL. (See Gabe #4.)
 * Use the strategy pattern to swap in different implementations of interfaces like Validation``Aware.
(See Tim, NTH #1.)

The Commons [http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/releases/prepare.html Preparation Guide] is
a helpful preparation backgrounder, but Commons uses the "beta/release-candidate/final" process.

Likewise, the [http://httpd.apache.org/dev/release.html HTTPD Release Guidelines] is a helpful
"overall process" backgrounder, but HTTPD does not use a test-build stage.
