<release projectid="modeling.mdt" version="0.7.0" />
This document lays out the feature and API set for the first release of the
Eclipse Business Process Model and Notation (MDT BPMN2) Project, version 0.7.0.
This project plan inherits from the Modeling Project Plan, which should be
referenced when consulting this individual project plan.
<html:i><html:b>Note</html:b> that, because the BPMN<html:sup>TM</html:sup> 2.0
specification may not have been adopted and/or finalized by June 2009, APIs
provided as part of the 0.7.0 release of <html:b>MDT BPMN2</html:b> are to be
considered <html:b>provisional</html:b>.</html:i>
The release deliverables have the same form as is found in most Eclipse projects, namely:
<html:li>MDT BPMN2 source code release, available as versions tagged "R0_7" in the project's CVS repository</html:li>
<html:li>MDT BPMN2 SDK (includes runtime, sources, examples, and documentation) (downloadable and update site)</html:li>
<html:li>MDT BPMN2 runtime binary distribution (downloadable and update site)</html:li>
<html:li>MDT BPMN2 stand-alone binary distribution (downloadable)</html:li>
<html:li>MDT BPMN2 tests (downloadable)</html:li>
Release milestone occurring at roughly 6 week intervals and follow the
Platform milestone releases by approximately 1 week; that is, until the final
3.5 release of the Platform, upon which MDT BPMN2 and other projects will
release simultaneously. As MDT BPMN2 may become a dependency of numerous other
projects, MDT BPMN2 will deliver its milestones within one week of the Eclipse
Platform. It is anticipated that MDT BPMN2 will synchronize its milestones with
the Galileo milestone schedule.

As MDT BPMN2 is a new subproject of MDT, it will not produce maintenance
releases to align with the Ganymede SR releases.
In order to remain current, each Eclipse release targets reasonably current
versions of the underlying operating environments. The Eclipse Business Process
Model and Notation (MDT BPMN2) project depends upon on the Platform and other
projects, which are mostly "pure" Java<html:sup>TM</html:sup>. The 3.5 release
of the Eclipse Platform Project is written and compiled against version 1.4 of
the Java Platform APIs, and targeted to run on version 1.4 of the Java Runtime
Environment, Standard Edition. MDT BPMN2 will target the same Java version as
EMF and UML2, which currently require Java 5. Eclipse Platform SDK 3.5 will be
tested and validated on a number of reference platforms. MDT BPMN2 will be
tested and validated against a subset of those listed for the platform.
The Eclipse Platform is designed as the basis for internationalized products.
The user interface elements provided by the Eclipse SDK components, including
dialogs and error messages, are externalized. The English strings are provided
as the default resource bundles. As a result, the MDT BPMN2 project will
provide English strings in its default bundles and be localized to a subset of
those locales offered by the Platform. This plan will be updated to indicate
which locales will be provided and the time frame for availability.

A list of project requirements and agreed upon implementation time frames is
found in this document. For the milestones listed in this document, a set of
overall themes is used to indicate what major set of functionalities is to be
concentrated on for each. These themes are presented below, while the
requirements document and associated Bugzilla entries are left to those wanting
more detailed information on each.
<theme name="Compliance">
As an implementation of the OMG<html:sup>TM</html:sup>'s BPMN 2.0
specification, the MDT BPMN2 project will maintain currency with the adopted
and finalized specifications, as they become available.
