Windup 2.5.0 will contain the fixes for bugs found by the users. Thanks especially to Marc Zottner.

You can already try Windup 2.5.0.CR3 (candidate release 3) - ask me for a link.

 

Marek Novotny has compiled a set of new features in 2.5.0 based on Jira features/enhancements report:

 

  • CLI user experience changes (bootstrap help faster, packages can be
  • With wildcards, discovering available packages in input)
  • Added VisualAge Generator generated classes into ignored packages
  • Updated Maven plugin with showcasing it in new Quickstart
  • Migration issues report rework
  • Enhanced of all reports layouts to be more user friendly (graphs, tree like structure)
  • Added/Fixed core migration rules

 

Windup 2.6.0 will bring few new features, including automated partial Mavenization of the your project, which will help you identify the libraries you have in your application bundle and the APIs it uses. More on that later.

Last week, we had a team meeting in Barcelona.

And we have plenty of work from that. 16 pages long bulleted list of topics discussed, fileld with action items. You can see many of them in the WINDUP, WINDUPRULE and MIGR jira projects.

 

One thing I'm currently working on is automated mavenization of applications. Turns out it's not really easy and there is a reason it takes a big part of migration effort.

Barcelona was nice, all those crazy Gaudí buildings, the little hills around the center, nicely working infractructure, and the view of the sea from the citadel...

Actually I've been there cca. 26 years ago. Sagrada Familia didn't move a bit, only there's more things smacked on the facade. But in general the city got nicer

I and Jess Sightler visited an AngularJS meetup at University of Barcelona.

The local community has around 1000 members, and the talk was attended by 80+ people. Quite impressive for a city of 2.5 million. Go Catalunya!
