How complete is JSR-88 support?

epdv-2

Hello,

from the wiki, it seems nothing has changed since 2005-03-22 05:39:00
(obviously the roadmap hasn't been updated since then) ;-) .

So just my question: Is JSR-88 support complete? And what about the
others? From the dev mailing list, I'd guess Geronimo is almost
complete, so what (other than certification) is incomplete yet?

Kind regards

Taking just the JSR-88 bit, the plugin functionality that deals with
distribution is complete - our deployer itself uses it to distribute,
start, stop, etc. applications.

The configuration part of the API is not implemented (strictly, we say
there are no configurable elements which IIRC is also what the RI does)
so that there is no support for tools trying to build deployment
descriptors.

Hi Peter,

Well, I'm just investigating the current status of Geronimo JSR88
support as I'm developing a NetBeans serverplugins module. NetBeans IDE
already comes with several app servers and I decided to add Geronimo as
well. I couldn't long settle on which Rich Client Platform to pick up to
develop the module and after some rather general evaluation I decided to
go with NetBeans RCP. I must admit I very liked the announcement that
Eclipse has its own Geronimo plugin, too.

As far as I understand Geronimo JSR88 support, there're some parts of
JSR88 which aren't yet available. Most of the operations throws
Unsupported operation or something alike. I'm going to start a thread
about how much impact it might have on the current certification work so
I'm happy I'm not alone who's interested in it :)

As far as the NetBeans module (NBM) is concerned, it's not yet announced
here (and actually anywhere else but NetBeans nbj2ee mailing list) as I
don't actually know when it is going to be finished. At the moment, the
module adds a Geronimo instance (downloaded or built from sources), once
started up (it's mocked up at the moment to make sure I'm not distracted
with Geronimo itself) it prints out available configurations, sets up
one as default to be started up the next time. The last piece of the
puzzle is to have modules deployed using DeploymentManager. I'm not yet
using Geronimo's JMXDeploymentManager due to some class libraries
constraints on my part. That's why I can't say exactly what's missing.

Well, it's great you've asked about it - I should've written about it
long ago, esp. having noticed Eclipse WDT support for Geronimo. It looks
there're two IDEs which are heading towards the same goal, so sooner or
later Geronimo DeploymentManager will surely be complete. Stay tuned.

        JSR-88 support is not complete.  Most of the opoerations should
work (such as deploy, undeploy, etc.).  However, I don't believe the
configuration beans are complete or up to date.

I'm very happy about that :-) :-) :-) !!!

I've just been looking around for some information about how to
integrate geronimo myself, but I've not yet digged into geronimo (seems
still not stable, documents about status are outdated etc. As I've not
yet used J2EE, it would be horrible to do that). In addition I'd to dig
into the j2ee module, which seems also not to have a stabilized api yet.

Just as I've said: I'm very happy that You're doing this work!

Kind regards
