Subject Geronimo Board Report for January 2007
Date Tue, 16 Jan 2007 15:41:57 GMT
Geronimo Project - Board Report

Summary -
All in all it was fairly quiet at the end of the year.  The project  
team has been focusing on two releases.  1.2-beta was released that  
includes integration of three projects from the incubator (OpenEJB,  
Yoko and OpenJPA).  2.0-M1 was released that includes many of the new  
Java EE 5.0 technologies.  The project is working towards a goal of  
completing a certified server in time for Java One.  2.0-M1 also  
pulled in CXF from the Incubator.

Collaboration with several other projects in Apache is going on which  
includes Axis 2, OpenJPA, OpenEJB, CXF and Yoko.  There has been some  
mention about OSGi which would include Felix but that work hasn't  
really taken off yet.

Here are the details.

* DayTrader
Released a performance report on Geronimo in October.  DayTrader was  
the benchmark sample used for comparisons.  The report can be found  

* DevTools
1.2.0 was released in November.  This included the ability to fully  
edit Geronimo.xml plans.

* XBean
Version 2.8 was released in early January

* Specifications
Specifications were reorganized after several months of debate.   
Rather than having a single version for the specifications each one  
is packaged separately.  Dain Sundstrom volunteered to help keep the  
releases and organization going.

* Other Work
WADI clustering has been moving forward
GCache has continued development but there has not been a lot of  
activity on the list.
New JMX console was added to Geronimo 1.2
JNDI / Classloader viewer was added by a new community member.   
Really neat stuff.
