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 5th May 2022
Attendees: Phil, Kevin, Alexander Zvegintsev, Victor, Zhengyu Gu, Niels de Graef, Maxim Kartashev, Jonas Adahl, Olivier Fourdan, Mario Torres
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
Online Zoom Meeting 9am PDT 7th April 2022
Attendees: Alexey Ushakov, Olivier Fourdan, Niels de Graef, Jonas Adhal, Sergey Bylokohov,
Alexander Zvegintsev, Zhengyu Gu, Phil Race, Kevin Rushforth, Victor Dyakov
Working on pure wayland, can show AWT and Swing frames with sime simple rendering in paintComponent
Nikita working on font rendering. Will push to branch on openJDK when ready.
3rd thing is AWT robot - Maxim is providing custom extension to Weston instance to get it working.
Alexander : does extension cover screen shot + key press : yes - works even for multimon ...
this is useful for testing but not for production
Sergey : how difficult to install this extension ?
Alexander: Reported a bug about XOR rendering but it could be a driver bug ?
Screencast still not usable because have to configure it manually every time you start a session
So weston extension looks more promising (for testing)
Need some scripting support
Jonas: maybe not running in a sandbox or something - should be possible to make it remember
what you selected in a dialog.
Maybe be missing a way for portal to associate request with application ID
Screencasting portal configures a token that should make it possible
Screenshot portal doesn't remember that _yet_ though
You can follow this issue for the latter: https://github.com/flatpak/xdg-desktop-portal/issues/649
Niels De Graef : Note that a wl extension protocol that disables security features like that probably won't fly in any compositor
( Jonas & Niels?) : AI: Are there any particualr JDK requirements around input methods - there is a slow moving project
to update in update flawed gtk3 4 protocol .. Phil will have to get back on that after asking around.
