Subject EL 3.0 status
Date Thu, 04 Jul 2013 11:49:47 GMT
You have probably noticed the recent EL 3.0 related commits. The current
status of EL 3.0 is:

- API (javax.el) signatures changes complete
- API implementation complete apart from LambdaExpression
- API implementation totally untested

- EL (org.apache.el) essentially not started

My planned next steps are:

1. To go through the API changes and add test cases based on the
descriptions in the Javadoc to validate the (as yet) untested

2. Update the grammar parser to support the new grammar.

3. Add test cases for the new grammar.

A number of folks both publicly and privately have expressed a wish to
get involved in the EL 3.0 implementation. The code is now at the stage
where there is scope to contribute anything from a test case of a few
lines to much larger contributions (although more frequent, smaller
contributions are nearly always easier to consume). If you still aren't
quite sure where to start, watch for my next few commits which will
(hopefully) be some simple test cases that will give you the general idea.
