Subject RE: HELP! Need ideas for Geronimo presentation at ApacheCon!
Date Tue, 07 Oct 2003 01:08:25 GMT
Hi Bruce,

I'm going out to the ApacheCon mainly for this talk.  I'm actually
writing an article on Geronimo (for Apress) and will be doing a few more
articles over the next several months for both Apress and Linux

In any case, here's a list of questions that I have either put in my
article so far or would like to have answered in the future as Geronimo

-What key API's are going to be written vs. plugging in an existing
product? (i.e. using Jetty instead of writing a servlet container)

-What will Geronimo offer that other J2EE servers won't (or not as

-TIMELINE?! (a rough timeline would really make a lot of people happy)

-What areas are the furthest along in development?

-What areas still need a lot of work?

-(Maybe a little history on how this all got started?)

I have some more ideas, but I'll have to send them in later.  Hopefully,
this will give you something to go off of.

Subject: HELP! Need ideas for Geronimo presentation at ApacheCon!

I'm currently constructing a presentation to be delivered at ApacheCon
( in November. Much to my surprise, I just
realized that I've only got four days with which to complete and submit
the presentation to the powers that be at ApacheCon (yikes!).

The talk is titled, The State of Apache Geronimo. Below is the official
description for the talk:

    The announcement of the Apache Geronimo project generated an
    incredible response from the community. Within its first month,
    the mailing list has already seen over 3000 messages. This response
    has translated into a large amount of people from all over the world
    working on the project.

    The Apache Geronimo project is an effort to develop an open-source
    J2EE container using a BSD-derived license that is fully compliant
    with the J2EE specification as well as fully Sun certified. The
    project will achieve this by building upon the many Java projects at
    the Apache Software Foundation. In addition, the project is bringing
    together leading members of the Castor, JBoss, MX4J, and OpenEJB
    communities, and possibly others.

    The intent of this session is to discuss the current status of
    Geronimo as well as the roadmap for the future. The format of this
    session will be a presentation about Apache Geronimo followed by a
    question and answer/discussion session.

That being said, I'm sending this is an effort to garner some ideas from
the Gernimo community on the content for the presenation. Please chime
in FAST with your ideas.

FWIW, I plan on donating this presentation to the project after it's
been presented. Granted, it will definitely change over time, but I'm
thinking about keeping it up to date as changes occur.
