NameDescription

Apache Directory Project

-

-The Apache Java LDAP Server (a.k.a. Eve, f.k.a. LDAPd) is the flagship server under the new Apache Directory Project. Eve is a pure Java implementation of an LDAP version 3 server based on Avalon and SEDA. Eve, as the first of its kind, will revolutionize the way directories are used by enabling server embedding and rich database constructs like stored procedures and triggers. Eve leverages JNDI as the embedding API and allows the use of a server side JNDI LDAP provider to efficiently access server databases within stored procedures. -

-

-Eve's simplicity and modularity, thanks primarily to Avalon design patterns, makes it an ideal protocol experimentation and extention framework. Those forging the future of internet directory protocols on standards bodies like ldap-bis and others can use Eve to test and demonstrate the substance of new RFCs. Eve's swapable protocol components and plugable backends puts the focus on the protocol rather than code management and porting. -

-

Cocoon

Apache Cocoon is a web development framework built around the concepts of separation of concerns and component-based web development. -Cocoon implements these concepts around the notion of 'component pipelines', each component on the pipeline specializing on a particular operation. This makes it possible to use a Lego(tm)-like approach in building web solutions, hooking together components into pipelines without any required programming. -Cocoon is "web glue for your web application development needs". It is a glue that keeps concerns separate and allows parallel evolution of all aspects of a web application, improving development pace and reducing the chance of conflicts. -

FTP Server Project

FtpServer is a server component for Avalon that allows remote FTP client to attach and download files. The client software can be any type of FTP client written in any language. The criteria for eligibility is RFC compliance. The server uses several components. Some of the components have multiple implementations. For example user management has implementations that will use LDAP, JDBC and Cornerstone's Store facility for storage. -The server has a management console (GUI) that can connect over RMI to the server. -

Fulcrum

Fulcrum was originally created as part of the Turbine 3 effort. -The idea was to be able to decouple the services from Turbine 2 allowing -them to be used on both projects. Fulcrum is currently evolving into a -generic component repository useful in building web applications. Each -service is been converted into a stand alone component that can be released -independently of the other components. -

James

-

The Java Apache Mail Enterprise Server (a.k.a. Apache James) is a 100% pure Java SMTP and POP3 Mail server and NNTP News server. James was designed to be a complete and portable enterprise mail engine solution based on currently available open protocols.

-

James is also a mail application platform. The James team have developed a Java API to let you write Java code to process emails that we call the mailet API. A mailet can generate an automatic reply, update a database, prevent spam, build a message archive, or whatever you can imagine. A matcher determines whether your mailet should process an email in the server. The James project hosts the Mailet API, and James provides an implementation of this mail application platform API.

- The cornerstone project is the home of a set of component blocks - that can be used to simplify application development. These components - and typically singleton components that represent structural building - blocks. -

- Excalibur Utilities -

- The Excalibur project is the home of a set of utility services - used in the construction of formal blocks or container facilities. - Services include internationalizatioin, configuration utilities, - thread management, SEDA sytel even handling, a logging subsystems, - etc. -

- Avalon Logkit -

- Logkit is a complete logging framework (like log4j) as an - Avalon component. Most Avalon containers use it as the - default logging implementation. -

The Avalon Component model is made up of a combination of classic - interfaces that define the artifacts exchanged between a container and - a component. The requirements presented by a component to container - are expressed using meta-info descriptors that are colocated with - component classes. Interfaces and default implementations are described - under Avalon Framework package. The meta-info descriptors and related tools - are included under the Avalon Meta package.

ProductDescription
-

- - Avalon Framework API and Implementation -

-
-

The Avalon Framework API and Implementation consists of interfaces that define relationships between commonly used application components, best-of-practice pattern enforcements, and several lightweight convenience implementations of the generic components.

-
-

- - Avalon Meta -

-
-

The Avalon Meta Model defines the functional criteria for component types and services. A Type definition contains information about deployment and runtime dependencies together with information about the services that a component type can provide.

-
-

- - Avalon Utilities -

-
-

A set of utilities shared by framework components supporting default property - management, environment variable resolution, exceptio reporting and a - parameterized map implementation (using within the repositroy package).
