Geronimo 2.2.1 release date plus 3 days

High

(error) JIRA fixes
(error) Better capabilities to import existing projects into Eclipse
(error) Integrate IAM
(error) Java EE 6 support


  • N/A
  • The maven-eclipse-plugin is just not sufficient--even it if did support WTP 2.0, which it doesn't
  • Eclipse Integration for Apache Maven project (see
    http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/iam/)

Medium

(error) Integration testsuite enhancements
(error) OpenJPA support in GEP
(tick) Application client support in GEP

  • For example, GEP cannot generate database schema using OpenJPA
  • i.e., Without using a separate command line (see
    https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMODEVTOOLS-339)
  • e.g., To discover and import existing resources (database pools, configurations, deployments, services, databases, connectors, plugins, etc...). Some similar work already finished in GEP 2.1.2 for dependencies (see GERONIMODEVTOOLS-414) but still needs to supports others.
  • To support clustering already provide via the Geronimo server
