This Drools upgrade, and a probable upgrade to jBPM 4 (happening due
to these products needed in the JBoss SOA platform 5, based on EAP 5,
which in turn includes Seam) mean that we need to make the release
Seam 2.2 (which I said would never happen, I know ;-)
Due to the concentration on Web Beans / Seam 3 there hasn't been a
huge amount of activity recently, however 2.2 will include:
* 112 issues closed (please direct your thanks to Norman here - he has
been soldiering away!)
* improvements to Seam-gen (Glassfish, IDEA etc.) from Dan
* big improvements to REST support - Christian and Jozef
* Drools and jBPM upgrades
So, I suggest that Norman and Marek (can you coordinate with each
other) handle the jBPM upgrade (Tom just released alpha2, and plans
the GA in the mid summer) - we should wait until there is a beta out I
think for Seam 2.2 GA... Tom, any rough guess when this will be?
Assuming Tom has a beta, I propose this schedule:
Seam 2.2.0 CR1 - Wednesday 22nd April
Seam 2.2.0 - Wednesday 13th May
Seam 2.2.1 CR1 - Wednesday 17th June
Seam 2.2.1 - Wednesday 8th July (hopefully just after the jBPM GA)
This will be the first time for time-boxing our releases too,
something we are doing for Web Beans, and will do for Seam3.
Anne-Louise, could you please comment on how these dates fit with EAP5
component freezes? Will we be able to get 2.2.1 in?

Subject: [JBoss JIRA] Commented: (JBSEAM-4011) Upgrade Drools
framework integration to version 5
Stefano Travelli commented on JBSEAM-4011:
As far as I know, drools 5 is not a drop in replacement of drools
4.0.7. Lots of dependencies change (mvel and antlr for instance) and
most of all there are several API changes that make Seam after
changeset #10170 not compatible with Drools 4 forcing a migration to
Drools 5 in the run time environment of existing applications.
At least, a detailed migration path for existing application is
needed. However, even after accomplished all dependencies, rules in
my application don't compile anymore.
Actually, in my opinion this upgrade is unfitted for a maintenance
release of Seam.
