      Description

      When we release JBT 4.0.1, we should update https://www.jboss.org/tools/download/installation/update_4_0#installon420421 to include a blurb about why we encourage users to use Juno SR2 instead of R or SR1.

      Reasons include:

      a) performance patch, JBIDE-13326 / JBIDE-13335
      b) WTP bug / behaviour change between WTP 3.3.0 & 3.3.1: JBIDE-13821

          First reason documented. Awaiting clarification from Rob Stryker on the second one.

          If anything, number 2 is a new bug in wtp behavior. WTP now ignores meta files like .project whereas it did not used to. So a custom virtual component which explicitly exposes a .project file will have this ignored against their wishes.

          However, the unit test was made after SR1, and SR1 included this change in behaviour. The difference in behaviour is only noticable when running tests against pre-SR1, which the test was never designed to run against.

          So... if anything, the new behavior in wtp is a bug, and this should not be documented as a reason to use sr2 for 2 reasons: first, the change was made in sr1, so there's no change between sr1 and sr2, and the second reason is that hte new behaviour is kinda crap

          Thanks, Rob Stryker.

          So... "Web Tools 3.4.1 introduced a behaviour change (which some might consider a bug) such that it now ignores metadata files such as .project."

          Has this been reported to WTP and if so, do you know the bugzilla #?

          From Rob:


          There is no bugzilla bc i did not file one upstream... bc i believe the issue is relatively small and it will be hard for me to justify bitching at them about it
