Oracle will stop providing public updates for Oracle JDK 8 in January. This means that only Oracle customers with a paid subscription or support contract will be eligible for updates.  

In order to provide you with another option, we now need to upgrade the platform to run with with AdoptOpenJDK 8. AdoptOpenJDK is free to use, and provides regular maintenance and security updates. Paid support for AdoptOpenJDK is also available from organizations such as IBM.

Needs a user centric story - add to existing ticket
OpenMRS Web Framework

From discussions in #MOZ15, we would like for the OpenMRS Platform to evolve toward providing a web framework that allows developers to add functionality using standard development tools (e.g., HTML5 + JavaScript against REST services, AngularJS apps, OWA , ...).

Ranking REST tickets on 5 Aug design call.

Burke Mamlin and Unknown User (darius) discussed 24-July-2015 and Darius will make a Talk topic to move this forward.

Bahmni technical deep dive scheduled for 4 June Developers Forum.

17 June design forum will discuss progress (coordinating various efforts). As well as look at how to make REST services more robust. Darius still working w/ Bahmni on fundamental pieces of their web framework to pull into OpenMRS (will talk about this on future call).

25 June dev forum on REST web services: how to substantially improve them W/ Burke Mamlin & Darius Jazayeri

Vertical Packaging

OpenMRS has a lot of flexibility and extensibility with a central concept dictionary, RBAC, forms, reports, modules, and apps; however, it's not always easy to know which metadata goes with which functionality. The goal of vertical packaging is to define best practices for managing and relating all of the components (metadata & behavior) that work together to solve a particular problem within OpenMRS. Eventually, we envision a way that someone could easily add the MDRTB package to their OpenMRS implementation to begin treating MDRTB patients... or upgrade their Oncology package, etc.

Need to look at the design we had and see if we can get it in 2.3

First step will be to add ability to map metadata, 22 June design forum
