Subject: Request approval to declare Woden 1.0.0 M3 Candidate by EOD
Jan. 24


Following the release process for projects in incubation, I'd like to
request approval for Woden to declare milestone 3. A vote was held on
the woden-dev list where M3 received 5 +1 votes and no negative votes.
The votes collected are as follows:

John Kaputin +1
Lawrence Mandel +1 
Dims +1 
Jeremy Hughes +1
Arthur Ryman +1 

As required of releases from projects in incubation, the distributable
archives contain incubating in their names. The M3 archives can be found

My original post summarizing Woden 1.0.0 M3 is below. 

Please vote by 5pm EST, Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2006.

Woden 1.0.0 M3 Candidate - please vote by EOD Thursday, Jan. 19




Woden committers, I'd like to request your vote on the status of M3.
I've placed a Woden 1.0.0 
M3 Candidate build at

The Woden M3 candidate includes the major work items from the M3 plan. 
Specifically, the following items are complete in the M3 Candidate:

Parsing of WSDL 2.0 import and include (DOM) 
WSDL 2.0 Service parsing (DOM) 
Implement validation logic for Binding 
Unit tests for validation logic for Binding 
Integrate W3C WSDL 2.0 Binding tests into Woden test suite 

The following items are incomplete in the M2 plan:

Unit tests for import and include parsing (DOM) 
WSDL 2.0 HTTP Binding extension (DOM) 
Unit tests for HTTP Binding extension (DOM) 
Unit tests for Service parsing (DOM) 
Investigate WSDL 2.0 parsing with StAX 
Update technical documentation about Woden design and implementation on
Create initial user documentation 

In an effort to make Woden more immediately usable, we deferred HTTP
Binding extension work to M4 in favour of adding support for WSDL import
and include elements. StAX will continue to be an investigation item
until the DOM implementation is close to complete or we get more
development help. John and I are working on user documentation and
should have it ready for the Woden site around the proposed M3 release
on Friday. Automated tests for the parser continue to require attention
but, as John has conducted manual testing and the W3C test suite has
been integrated into the Woden automated test suite, we are in good
shape for M3.

Both John and I think Woden is in good shape to declare M3 as solid
progress has been made on the parser and the validator. At this point
we'd like to ask the Woden committers to vote on the status of M3. John
and I both vote +1 (so +2). Please vote ASAP. We will collect votes
until EOD (5pm EST) Thursday, Jan. 19. If there are no negative votes I
will then request WS and Incubator PMC approval to release M3 by EOD
Friday, Jan. 20. Once the PMCs approve, M3 will be declared and a link
will be placed on the Woden site. (Feel free to reply to this note with
any concerns over this process.)
