The Wakefield committers may hold off-line discussions from time-to-time. Since these meetings are just for the committers and invited wayland experts, summary minutes will be recorded here as time permits
Online Zoom Meeting 9am PDT 30th June 2022
Attendees: Alexey Ushakov, Olivier Fourdan, Niels de Graef, Jonas Adhal, Kevin Rushforth, Victor Dyakov, Alexander Zvegintsev
Played with gdbus-org.freedesktop.portal.RemoteDesktop API, it looks suitable for mouse/keyboard control for AWT Robot.
Unfortunately it does not support session restoration like gdbus-org.freedesktop.portal.ScreenCast do.
Without it user has to provide "Allow remote interaction" confirmation each time the application is launched..
Is there any plans to add ability to restore session for RemoteDesktop API?
If so, will it come earlier than libEI?
There are such plans, furthermore, RemoteDesktop API will use libEI.
So we can either use RemoteDesktop API or libei directly at some point.
However dates are not clear yet.
A few crashes have been fixed in pure Wayland prototype, and text rendering support has been added.
Software rendering performance is quite good: it is close to 60 FPS( display refresh rate), but it can be worse on a less powerful hardware.
It looks like we can proceed without implementing hardware accelerated pipelines for now.
SwingSet2 works fine, no glitches observed, however input events are not implemented, so there is no way to control the app yet.
We do not expect any several issues with implementing input support.

Alexander : Ubuntu 2204 - no difference from previous releases
Looking at bug where mouse exit event not coming but works fine on native wayland app
Maxim : Nikita has done some work so fonts are being rendered although without hints and AA and sub-pixel but basic rendering working
Also (Maxim) made a preliminary prototype of how we want to start testing pure wayland - custom extension ..
He wasn't able to merge into openjdk repo [Kevin : Maxim missed a step in his project acceptances]
Code available through JB runtime repo
Maxim gave a quick demo of test framework
Lanuch a custom weston instance with Maxim's plugin so you aren't updating the running
desktop so no admin permissions required
The plugin gives access to weston internals -
provides wayland protocols which could be implemented for some other server
location of surface in abs coords
set location ..
grab portion of screen
get pixel color
would like someone to code review - Java side OK but plugin code is less obvious
Why doesn't work it with weston 10 when it works with weston 9 .. once you get
into accessing internals you really need to build against the exact version of weston you are targetting.
This testing effort is intended to be a stop-gap until we have a proper solution to running tests on
the wayland desktop - not imagined as a solution we can deliver as part of OpenJDK
