  1. Jakarta News: Graduations and Releases (13 messages)

    There has been a little news in Jakarta-land. Firstly, Struts has graduated from Jakarta to become a top level project. Now the books will be renamed "Apache Struts". Craig McClanahan will be the PMC Chair.

    Howard Lewis Ship's HiveMind has also graduated, from the sandbox into a Jakarta sub-project.

  2. Geronimo home front[ Go to top ]

    Is there anything new at Apache’s “Geronimo” home front? Did this project disappear with the JBoss copyright allegations?
  3. It certainly hasn't disappeared[ Go to top ]

    They are busy coding away.

    The lists are active, and they are having a Geronimo meet up in London next week as many of the major contributors happen to be there.

    So, it is progressing nicely by all accounts.

  4. Dion is right. I have visited Geronimo web site last week and noticed it's being updated regularly.

    Here's the link to Geronimo's main page:
    http://incubator.apache.org/geronimo/index.html

    There is also a clustering module listed on the site though there not much documentation on the main page. Link to the clustering service module:
    http://incubator.apache.org/geronimo/modules/clustering/index.html

    I am very curious to see how the clustering service will fit in the big picture of Geronimo J2EE framework and how this architecture will compare with other J2EE clustering implementations such as JavaGroups.

    Most of the links are empty wiki pages. Just seems like they are putting in placeholders for future work.

    Joe,
    There is no documentation on the main page of these modules but source code and javadoc's are available on the site.

  7. Struts 1.2[ Go to top ]

    Now that Struts is top level project, is there any chance we will finally see any type of beta or release candidate of Struts 1.2 made available?
  8. So Ant and Struts are top-level projects now, but Tomcat is still a Jakarta sub-project? What kind of rationale is there behind these decisions? Tomcat is easily worth a top-level project IMO, more so than Struts...

  9. Moves noted...[ Go to top ]

    You can rest assured the tomcat team is aware of the Struts (and Ant, Maven...) move to top-level project. We're discussing it ;)

    As to the "what difference does it make to us" question: probably very little. The license is the same of course, as are the people working on the project. But it makes a difference especially to the committers of a project with regardss to internal governance issues.
  10. How does it affect us except for the fact that now we would need one click less to get to the project home page, and why some one should care whether Struts under Jakarta or vice versa?
  11. New top level project?[ Go to top ]

    Is there a reason why Tomcat hasn't become a top-level project?

    I can understand ant leaving but why struts?
  12. New top level project?[ Go to top ]

    Is there a reason why Tomcat hasn't become a top-level project?

    I thought Marc said it was part of JBoss now ..

    Yes, and all the committers got salaries :)

  14. 'Promotion'[ Go to top ]

    The decision as to whether a project is 'top level' (outside Jakarta) is based on what the develeopers of that project choose. This is framed within a current environment that recommends larger, succesful, active projects should be direct children of Apache, rather than within Jakarta (or any other project).

    Thus, it is no surprise that sruts joins ant, maven, james, log4j etc as top level projects. Tomcat has a much more emotional link to Jakarta, as it was the first project, and some people still equate Jakarta to Tomcat. Personally I hope that Tomcat will move up too.

    Remember that this has no effect on the code, just on the website and internal project management.
