  1. is these frameworks are used or these frame works are related to this project , the title of the p[age is saying something different to the description 

    1. Concerning the tools and test frameworks (Gerrit, git, maven, JUnit etc), these are used as part of the ONAP tool chain.

      Concerning the Databases (I;e. MariaDB, MySQL etc), these are not part of our ONAP Source Code deliverables but some ONAP components have been integrated with them.

      Concerning frameworks (i.e. AngularJS, Drools, Woorea, etc), these were integrated and delivered as part of the ONAP Source Code.

      ONAP is also integrated with OpenJDK

  2. Catherine: nice clarification, identifying frameworks used vs frameworks integrated & delivered. Consider whether "framework used" and "framework integrated" is needed in the Category column.

    I think OpenJDK is essentially the same as Java v8, shown in the list.

    See also: Required Tools.

  3. About the Oracle JDK/OpenJDK differences - Oracle(after the SUN acquire) incorporated the JRocket JVM (was separate default JVM for WebLogic) and JVisualVM/JRMC into the JDK.  The OpenJDK version does not ship with JMC or JVisualVM (diagnostic/instrumentation tools we could use) out of the box - it also is lacking some licensed Java EE internal optimizations we don't really require.
