Re: Patch support for JAXB-980, JAXB-981 & JAXB-983

Hi,

I see that you are too busy to even answer my questions regarding my patches.
Maybe it's time to hand over the project to someone who is less busy and is able to accept stuff from outside of Oracle?

Once again, could you please provide some visibility to the features I submitted?

Cheers,
Przemyslaw

Hi,

you mentioned that the project is in the active dev phase but I'm waiting to integrate my patches for over a month now.

Could you please let me know when you can take a look at changes I proposed?

Hi, Przemysław,

As you know JAXB is open source project. If you need your changes to be integrated ASAP you can clone the project, patch it and use. You even you can fork the project.
We will be able to continue the work on integration of new features after we will have more or less clean bug tracking systems. It’s not trivial to integrate patches from unknown sources. So such time-consuming tasks have lowest priority.


Best regards.
Iaroslav

Hi,

  just to clarify this a bit, we absolutely value the patches submitted
and any other types of community contributions, however we can't
guarantee any timely acceptance even though we try hard. JAXB RI is part
of Java SE, Java EE, open source application servers, other reference
implementations, ... so it's crucial we maintain high level of
compatibility and specification conformance, which slows down the review
process.

  Iaroslav mentioned few ways for you to go on in the meantime. JAXB RI
is an open source project - recently we migrated the sources to git, and
also started syncing them with Github for exact reason to be more open,
more accessible and allow contributions to be submitted more easily. So
you are able to maintain your personal fork while in the process e.g.

  One other option I should probably mention for completeness, too, is
if you use JAXB within any supported product, then I'd recommend to
contact your sales representative and discuss potential support request.

Hi,

thanks for your reply.

Basically you just explained me diplomatically that my changes will never be integrated unless I pay Oracle for commercial support. How open-source that is?

> crucial we maintain high level of compatibility and specification conformance, which slows down the review process.

For this you have bunch of unit tests, integration tests and performance tests, don't you? If you don't you have a problem but it's not caused by my patches.

I wanted to avoid forking and to contribute with some nice features to JAXB RI but I'm leaving the counter disappointed. I would rather hear that my requests are bullshit and not necessary, rather than you don't have time to integrate them.

Have a nice weekend,
Przemyslaw
