Project Updates, August 2010

Note: Somehow, I managed to delete this post. So I’ve reposted it. Nothing new to see here. Move along…

Correction: For reasons lost in the deep recesses of my brain, I mistakenly titled this August 200_8_. Not sure how this happened, but it’s been fixed. Normally… I’m fixated on the ’80s…

The Tycho project creation review is declared successful!

Tycho is a set of Maven plugins and extensions for building Eclipse plugins and OSGi bundles with Maven. Eclipse plugins and OSGi bundles have their own metadata for expressing dependencies, source folder locations, etc. that are normally found in a Maven POM. Tycho uses native metadata for Eclipse plugins and OSGi bundles and uses the POM to configure and drive the build. Tycho supports bundles, fragments, features, update site projects and RCP applications. Tycho also knows how to run JUnit test plugins using OSGi runtime and there is also support for sharing build results using Maven artifact repositories.

Provisioning is already underway, so this project should be up-and-running in no time. Let me extend a big thank you to everybody who participated in the proposal and creation phases of this project; I sense a large and enthusiastic community developing behind this project.

Today also marks the start of the community review period for a Restructuring Review of the MDT/OCL project. In this case, the review is concerned with adjusting the scope of the project; there will be no code or actual structural changes. The community review period wraps up on August 18th; address any concerns that you have to the communication channel indicated in the review document.
