<release projectid="datatools" version="1.9"/>
<html:div>The Data Tools Platform (DTP) project provides a framework and exemplary tooling for accessing database data.
This is the plan for the DTP 1.9 release, which is part of the "Indigo" (Eclipse 3.7) release train. This is
the fifth Eclipse release train in which DTP has participated.</html:div>
<html:div>DTP provides two main deliverables: a "source" build for developers, which includes source code,
and a "runtime" build for users, which provides only what is needed to use DTP.</html:div>
<html:div>The DTP project is a "+1" project for the Eclipse Indigo release train. In general, "+1" projects
are release a working day after the base platform is released. Note: the current Galileo build will be used
as the Helios build for milestones M1 and M2.</html:div>

<html:div>The DTP project is compiled with Java 5. It is compatible with (but does not require) Java 6.
<html:p>DTP 1.9 will be compatible with Eclipse version 3.6.1 and above.</html:p></html:div>
<html:div>DTP is included in the Babel project.</html:div>
<html:div>The goal for DTP 1.9 is that it will be "binary compatible" with DTP 1.8. That is, client applications that
use DTP API's will not need to be recompiled to run with DTP 1.9.</html:div>
<html:div>The DTP project is has reached a stage of maturity where stability has become more important than
adding new features and function. The primary participating companies (Actuate and IBM) continue to use
DTP, but they have reduced the amount of resource assigned to the project so that change activity is limited
to small enhancements and important bug fixes. This is reflected in the themes for this release.</html:div>
<theme name="Continuing Quality Improvements">
<html:div>Continue fixing important bugs as identified by the participating companies and the
DTP community.</html:div>
<theme name="Eclipse 4.1">
<html:div>DTP is expected to run unmodified on Eclipse 4.1 using the compatibility API. DTP 1.9 will be tested
on Eclipse 4.1 occasionally during the Indigo release cycle and any compatibility issues identified will be
opened as bugs with the platform team.</html:div>
