The following work is scoped for 2 full-time engineers for 2 milestones of 6.8:

P1 - #1 -Java EE 6 related changes (M2 - Milos) DONE

  • new JEE 6 archetype and project customization
  • any changes needed to support EE 6 spec changes
  • give help to Java EE team ( JEE6Integration) but the work needed directly in Web/EE modules will have to be done by Java EE team (both for Ant and Maven at the same time)

P1 - #2 - Improved handling of misconfigured projects (M2 - dafe) DONE

  • web/j2ee projects without a server configuration defined

P2 - #4 - User feedback (M1 - milos, dafe) __DONE
