      ---------------------------

      AOP 1.0 - Mid Oct - final, nice docs
      ?doc book (Bill has to talk to Norman about unified build script)
      ?AOP with IDE integration (Bill will talk to Marshall to decide whether to delay the AOP release and wait for the AOP tool)

      EJB3
      almost fully functional now
      Persistence mapping is done vai hibernalte XML. Not ideal but working.
      Will release Early Access in October
      doc book coming with release
      EJB 3 will be deployer + aop file, ejb3.jar format

      past EA release
      ?cache team(SFSB dependency, Kabir and Bela need to discuss action plan)
      ?to be complete - query parser(dependency on new Hibernate query parser. Currently handled by external contributor - Joshua)
      ?integrate w/ WS(Bill and Thomas will discuss deps and reflect in roadmaps)


      JBossXB
      functional now
      ready for demo
      JAXB support pending
      jaxb is only useful when you don't have an obj. model
      jaxb 2 has ch8 about custom mapping
      ?Alex on eg(still not)
      ?JAXRPC depends on a subset of JAXB(Alex and Thomas will follow up to reflect deps in roadmaps)

      Persistence
      We need a generic persistence model that abstracts SQL with a simple API
      ?factor jdbc abstr out in hibernate(Alex and Steve will work on design. Discussion on all@hibernate.org)

      Hibernate
      3.0 coming along.
      ?Annotations (in the works by Emanuel and Steve)
      ?Query parser(still in the works by Josh, Steve will help out if needed)




      Microkernel
      november release
      Adrian started coding
      ?resources(Adrian assumes he will be full time on it. Unrealistic. Will have to reevaluate needs for more developers.)


      JMS
      JBossMQ moves to maintenance mode
      JBossMessaging will have to be delivered on time to replace JBossMQ
      Adrian is putting little time other than guiding Ovidiu
      Ovidiu is working on design and prototype but at slower than expected pace because of onsite
      ?Atlanta presentation(Ovidiu may not be able to deliver on time Adrian can cover.)
      ?more full time devs are needed for timely execution


      JCA
      done
      maintenance phase

      XA
      Nice to have, but we'll do it only if a customer pays for it

      Tomcat
      5.5 coming along.
      No pressing need for new features.
      ?config save, versioning(waiting on Adrian to announce the new standard way in microkernel)

      Nukes
      DR out
      Beta by year end
      ?Microkernel deps. Needs features not present today. (Julien will follow up with Adrian offline)



      JBossWS
      JB 4.0 - done. frozen Axis fork.
      JB 5.0 - start from scratch
      *Thomas had a bad phone connection and could not cover all that he wanted. Him, Scott and Ivelin will have a smaller conf call tomorrow to review roadmap.

      JBossCache
      JGroups
      Bela was not able to attend
