Subject [ANN] RIFE v0.8.2 released with Derby support
Date Thu, 06 Jan 2005 08:55:16 GMT

I write this mail to announce the release of RIFE v0.8.2 with complete  
support for Derby throughout the whole framework. We initially  
supported Cloudscape 5, but since it's now not available anymore as a  
demo or a free download, we ported the support over to Derby.

RIFE is a framework that offers an alternative approach to web  
application development and design. It builds upon the Java platform,  
and aims to offer all required tools and APIs to implement and perform  
common website related tasks in a fast, intuitive and consistent  
manner. More information about the project and its features can be  
found on http://rife.dev.java.net

RIFE provides support for Derby initially through its own O/R library  
that integrates object-oriented query builders and has a layered  
approach to database abstraction and persistence. It allows you to be  
assisted all the way from needing to write database-specific queries to  
wanting to quickly handle regular object persistence requirements in a  
single line.

RIFE also provides a content management framework that allows you to  
easily store rich data directly in the database with optional  
transformations, keeping it structured and versioned. Afterwards,  
everything is provided to stream the content out straight from the  
database through the server to a web client, or to embed it inside web  

RIFE provides other libraries with database back-ends: credentials,  
authentication, resource storage and scheduler. They provide a  
significant head-start when having to develop applications that require  
these features.

RIFE's sumo distribution ships with Derby and one only needs  
to setup a datasource to be able to start working with the database.  
More information about that can be found here:  

A datasource definition for Derby could for example be:
<datasource name="derbyds">

More information about using a database with RIFE can be found in the  
users guide (http://rifers.org/docs/usersguide/ch07.html), in the wiki  
(http://rifers.org/wiki/display/RIFE/Database) and in the javadocs  

I hope that you will find RIFE a valuable addition to your toolset.

Best regards,

Geert Bevin
