JavaROSA Tanzania Conference 2009

Coders Corner Outcomes

  • J2MERosa is happy to be dependent on Polish.
  • Going to try to get the formdef model to work in "picoRosa" (core + new code). If that fails, we will use epihandymobile as the starting point for "picoRosa" that runs on low end devices
    • low-end device means: 256kb jar / 600kb heap CLDC 1.0 MIDP 2.0
  • Put the names of XForms in XHTML
  • Single JAR built for the JavaRosa Core
    • automated testing to make sure that xform parsing gets obfuscated out
    • eclipse environment will also show any changes with modularity
  • Repository restructure and generating JARs. (see JARs.rtf)
  • Breaking RMS (without an upgrader) is a major version change
  • Each JAR is versioned.
  • Community only releases set of JARs together. Zip up JARs and release them all at once.
  • All 11 candidates are part of the steering committee
    • Reasonable response time to proposals is expected (unless vacation etc...)
  • We will use review-board for code review
  • Definition: JavaRosa is a brand name used for funding purposes.
  • Definition: JavaRosa Core is a library published by the OpenRosa Consortium
  • Definition: OpenRosa is a standards body.
  • [devices] every minor release we run a standard javarosa-demo and fill out a table to know which devices work with which versions of javarosa
  • Add support for <label lang="xxx"> for XForm internationalization
  • Remove the JRSP. (replaced by individual services that are either singletons or factories)
  • Use issue tracker on bitbucket
  • Developer home is the JavaRosa wiki on bitbucket
  • javarosa.org is public facing website for non-developers

TODO List for Developers

In addition to the table below, which will automatically update, you can easily look at these within the issue tracker, by looking at the dar09_backlog milestone:
