Notes on the MyFaces Core 1.2.4 Release

  • Release manager: Leonardo Uribe


  • Proposed release date: 2008-08-30



Here's how you can help us test the distribution.

Download a nightly build of the distribution assemblies:

Configure a <repository> for Maven 2:

           <name>Apache Snapshot Repository</name>

And declare a dependency on the 1.2.4 snapshots:


Note: Maven 2.0.4 will not download a new version if one is already present in your local repository. You will need to delete $M2_REPO/org/apache/myfaces/core to force Maven to download the new version. (Usually, $M2_REPO is <your home directory>/.m2/repository .)

Test your application, then, let us know the results (good or bad!) on dev -at- myfaces.apache.org. (You must be subscribed to post. See: http://myfaces.apache.org/mail-lists.html.)

I was running the needed tasks to get the 1.2.4 release of Apache
MyFaces core out.

The artifacts passed all TCK test.

Please note that this vote concerns all of the following parts:
 1. Maven artifact group "org.apache.myfaces.shared" v3.0.4  [1]
 2. Maven artifact group "org.apache.myfaces.core" v1.2.4  [1]

The artifacts are deployed to my private Apache account ([1] and [3] for binary and source packages).

The release notes could be found at [4].

Also the clirr test does not show binary incompatibilities with myfaces-api.

Please take a look at the "1.2.4" artifacts and vote!

Please note: This vote is "majority approval" with a minimum of three
+1 votes (see [3]).

[ ] +1 for community members who have reviewed the bits
[ ] +0
[ ] -1 for fatal flaws that should cause these bits not to be released,
 and why..............
