Add items for discussion here



  • SOAP client and artifact decoder work.  Getting close to being able to test artifact flow with real SP.



  • Java 8 / MDA
    • Working on integrating Spring 5 but there are many unshaven yaks.
  • Java 9
    • Theoretically (as far as Oracle are concerned) dead when Java 10 goes GA. That's probably not true in practice.
    • We should probably think about which versions we need to continue testing against.
    • We have a fair number of unresolved things brought up originally in Java 9 which will need to be kicked down the road.
    • One example:  JPAR-117 - Getting issue details... STATUS
  • Java 10
    • GA will be 2018-03-20 (next Tuesday). Can we update the Jenkins config then? (Including Windows, OpenJDK?)
    • I believe we can now add Java 10 tests to Jenkins -multi jobs, will try this soon.
    • Some things still need work:
  • Java 11
    • Causes another layer of failures, at least with the initial EA releases.
    • Many Maven plugins will need updating again.
    • JPAR-110 - Getting issue details... STATUS
    • Just over six months to GA.
    • We can probably start doing tests for some projects soon, others will require fixing the dependency issues.
    • Can we get an EA available in Jenkins, including for Windows?




  • SSPCPP-775 - Getting issue details... STATUS , should be done imminently
  • Additional Santuario changes made to support reuse of AES-GCM impl
    • Not seeing much reason to push this out much ahead of our own release, in case more "improvements" needed



  • No labels
