Apache Geronimo Board Report

The Apache Geronimo Project has completed a certified Java EE 5.0 compliant stack in release 2.0-M6-rc1. This is not the official 2.0 release but demonstrates that we have an implementation that passes the grueling demands of the Java EE 5.0 platform TCK. Sun has placed Apache Geronimo on their certification page: http://java.sun.com/javaee/overview/compatibility.jsp

Collaboration with several other projects at Apache is going on which include ActiveMQ, Axis 2, CXF, MyFaces, OpenEJB, OpenJPA, Tomcat and Yoko.

Other Issues

In addition, we need a better way to coordinate TCK activities by multiple projects it might be prudent to have a place for various projects to coordinate their TCK test activities. During the Geronimo testing it was discovered that CXF (that helped with the testing) was unaware of some challenges that had already been raised by Geronimo testers. We're not sure if there is sufficient overlap to justify more central coordination but wanted to note the issue.
