News: Atomsphere 1.0, library and WAR to manage ATOM feeds

  1. Atomsphere 1.0 has been released. This is a project that contains a library to read and write ATOM feeds, as well as providing a web application to provide a front end to manipulating ATOM feeds. ATOM is an analog to RSS, described as "Atom is a simple way to read and write information on the web, allowing you to easily keep track of more sites in less time, and to seamlessly share your words and ideas by publishing to the web." The .WAR relies on deployment manipulation; namely, it looks for a configuration file on the filesystem that may or may not exist (e.g., "C:/atomConfig.xml" on your editor's Solaris machine running Glassfish.) This doesn't mean that the library code is inefficient, though. The library itself (the com.colorful.atom.beans package) looks very straightforward, and the focus on ATOM itself makes the API a bit more clean than some other such implementations, such as Rome, which has to rely on abstractions since the protocols use different terms for similar elements.

    For those interestd in Atom, especially if the GPL doesn't fit your needs, there's also an Apache Incubator project named Abdera that is implementing the Atom specification: Abdera Incubator Site.

    Google's GData client libraries provide similar functionality and are pretty easy to use. They are open sourced under the Apache license to boot.
