Subject Need stable version scheme for TomEE and link to archived releases
Date Sat, 27 Oct 2012 06:44:28 GMT
Hello,

TomEE is supposed to be "Tomcat Enterprise Edition". One thing that
"Enterprises" appreciate with software prerequisites is the ability to move
from one version to another when they fell confident that 1/ it's
compatible with the web apps they deploy 2/ it's available.

Currently (as of 27th October) we have in TomEE download page only links to
version 1.5.0.

In theory, there will soon be version 1.5.1, and "enterprises" will
consider the .1 as a bug fix release.
I read that maybe the next available TomEE would be 1.6.0, meaning features
changes.

Why 1.0.0. isn't anymore accessible on TomEE download page?
Will links to 1.5.0 be removed when 1.5.1 is available on the download page?
Will links to 1.5.x be removed when 1.6.0 is available on the download page?
What if an "enterprise" bought a product that is certified on 1.5.x ; x=>0 ?
Will there be no 1.5.2, 1.5.3 once 1.6.0 is available? what if Tomcat 7
security fixes are only avail on TomEE 1.6.x but not on TomEE 1.5.x?

Let's compare with Apache Tomcat download page: there are links for the
last 3 major releases (Tomcat 7, Tomcat 6 and Tomcat 5).
When you follow the link on a given release, say Tomcat 7, you have access
to latest point release of Tomcat 7 (Tomcat 7.0.32 as of this writing), but
also to "Archives", from where all point releases between 7.0.0 and
7.0.0.32 can be downloaded.

All major application servers have clear version scheme and access to
archives.
We all want TomEE to be taken seriously (reference to Romain's link to a
french article where TomEE was almost seen as a Toy-me ;), so would you
agree to
  1/ Standardize TomEE version scheme
  2/ Restore access to TomEE 1.0.0 and provide a link to TomEE "archived"
versions
?

Thanks,
Alex.
