Currently, a lot of code in the Java EE projects area is duplicated, which has several bad effects:
- Copy-pasted code does not contain the latest bugfixes that are present in the original codebase, typically j2se
project. So the Java EE projects are buggier
- Maintenance is harder, as all bugfixes have to be done in several places. Moreover, if the copies are divergent,
applying bugfixes in several places may not be straightforward.
Done for the purposes of 6.1 planning (although should be continued after 6.1).
