    1. Tom will send a note to the dev list stating that we will be upgrading checkstyle.xml throughout the stack for compatibility with Checkstyle 6.19+ and that upgrading to the latest Eclipse Checkstyle Plug-In will be required, we will also pin the parent-V3 POM to Checkstyle 6.19 for Maven.
  4. OpenSSL (brief)








  • Unable to attend.






  • OpenSSL 1.1
  • Misc IdP fixes



  •   SSPCPP-708 - Getting issue details... STATUS
  • MFA framework update


  • Tomcat
    • We agreed we should test Tomcat on Windows, I need to change some file separators and replace .sh with .bat.
    • We agreed we should test the back-channel via the integration tests
  • Jenkins
    • Chatted with Ian about Jenkins. I wanted to pass the values of the axes of a Jenkins multi-configuration project as system properties to the command executed by Maven. Issue being that in addition to axes for Jetty and Tomcat, we would also need axes for the idp-jetty|tomcat-base projects and corresponding regular expression filters for the obvious non-combinations (like Jetty 9.2 and idp-jetty-base 9.3). Outcome was to define axes whose values are text comprising multiple system properties, for example "-Djetty.version=X Didp-jetty-base.version=Y". Attached an example of what that looks like :

    • Discussed turning down the V2 jobs to reduce load
      • We should disable Javdoc creation -Dmaven.javadoc.skip=true where appropriate
      • Removed the release profile from java-integration-tests* jobs which creates Javadoc and aggregates etc.
  • TIER
  • Docker
    • Chatted with Ian about Docker. The second instruction on the Jenkins Docker image did not work for me, Jenkins either hangs or fails to start-up with permissions issues depending on whether the external volume is case-insensitive or case-sensitive. Maybe a bug in Docker for Mac, dunno.
