Action Items

Wiki Markup\[GrouperWG:AI\] (Chris and SteveO) will set up a test instance of Grouper, after the Grouper 1.6 release

Wiki Markup\[GrouperWG:AI\] (TomB) will create a list of performance issues for discussion later.

Wiki Markup\[GrouperWG:AI\] (Rob) will look at issues relating to testing the ESB Connector.

Target for release of Grouper 1.6 is June 11.


Work still needing to be done for Grouper 1.6 includes:

  • Merging of Chris's work on XMPP integration with Rob's ESB Connector work. Rob has looked at this and will send Chris some information.
  • TomZ reported that for Ldappc-ng, one or two tests don't pass for minor reasons; he will make the needed fixes.
  • Gary has been testing his UI (export) work and has found one issue that he needs to fix.


In addition to unit testing, the team will do upgrade tests on various databases as possible. It is not practical to test every operating system and database combination. When testing on Linux and Windows, 32-bit and 64-bit, there are too many combinations to accomplish thorough testing on all. However, as we fill in the test table on the wiki, it will be helpful to fill in what operating system is being used and if 32 or 64-bit.


Though it is possible to call Ant tests from Maven, TomZ prefers not to use that approach.


  • TomZ will work on documentation for Ldappc-ng
  • Rob will move his ESB Connector documentation to the Grouper wiki.
  • Chris has written a technical upgrade document
  • Shilen will create a non technical upgrade document, noting that DDL utils should be used to do the upgrade, rather than XML import and export.

Packaging Ldappc-ng

After discussion, it was decided that Ldappc-ng will not go into the Grouper tar file. It will be an a separate binary. There will be an Ant script in the API to copy ldappc-ng. This is consistent with the decision on the May 5 call.
