-> Community business as usual (nothing special to report).



  • MyFaces (sub) projects with new releases since the last report:
    • MyFaces Core 2.0.23 (12/January/15)
    • MyFaces Core 2.1.17 (12/January/15)

    • MyFaces Tobago 2.0.7 (22/March/15)


The TCK issue mentioned in our January report for 2014 still exists. Werner Punz[1] and Leonardo Uribe[2] discussed the impacts of this issue and the impacts are summarized as follows:

  • It reduces our marketability, since consumers are more likely to pick an open-source JSF implementation certified as "TCK-compliant" over a non-certified one.
  • It reduces our ability to be distributed as part of a Java EE stack, such as Apache TomEE and Apache Geronimo, since their TCK certification depends upon our TCK certification.


There are no new issues that require the board's attention at this time.
