the archetypes at https://github.com/wildfly/wildfly-archetypes
(e.g. "wildfly-javaee7-webapp-ear-blank-archetype") are for WildFly 8,
and when updating the WildFly version in pom.xmls, a lot of further
changes is required, see https://issues.jboss.org/browse/WFLY-9703
(which is only part of the changes).
I am interested in creating new archetypes for WildFly 15. What do you
My plan is to name them e.g.
"wildfly15-javaee8-webapp-ear-blank-archetype" and to create a new
archetype version each time a new WildFly major version is released.
If you are OK with this, I will struggle with my first steps in Git, and
I probably will ask some more or less dumb questions about details ;-).
Work is now underway on WildFly 17, so I wanted to blog about what I see
coming in the next few releases. You can read that at
https://wildfly.org/news/2019/03/09/Onward-to_WildFly-17/. I'd love to get
your feedback here. I'm particularly interested in peoples' thoughts on
what they'd like to see in Jakarta EE 9.
If you're interested in the details of new features that are being worked,
I really encourage you to keep an eye on
https://github.com/wildfly/wildfly-proposals/pulls and comment on any
proposals you see there. I encourage folks who submit a new proposal to
post here with a quick intro and a link.
WildFly 17 is scheduled for release three months after 16, continuing the
quarterly cadence. Here are the key dates:
- Fri, May 10 — PRs ready for merge for all features coming in via
- Tue, May 14 — All features ready for merge
- Wed, May 15 — WildFly 17 Beta. No new features after this date.
- Fri, May 24 — All changes for WildFly Core ready
- Tue, May 28 — All changes for WildFly ready
- Thu, May 30 — WildFly 17 Final released
I'd like to propose we drop the org.slf4j.ext module . Currently no
other modules depend on this module.
Does anyone have any objections to this?
