  <p>
          Apache Geronimo is a new effort coordinated by the Apache Software Foundation to make a 
          J2EE compatible container.  Please read the <a href="geronimo-proposal.html">proposal</a>
          that started the project in the incubator.  We are also tracking our
          <a href="status.html">status progressing through incubation</a>.

       </p>
  <p>
         This is the official site for Geronimo while it's in the incubation phase at Apache.

        </li>
      
  </ul>
  <p>
          The most important step is to join the <a href="#Mailing+Lists">mailing list</a>
          It is not necessary to post a "Hi" message or to join the project.  By subscribing to
          the list, you're joining the project.  After that, it is all down to participation.
        </p>
  <p>
          As with all <a href="http://www.apache.org/">Apache</a> projects, the usual form is to get the
          project's source via CVS tools, join the mailing list(s), find
          something to do, and submit a patch to the mailing list for
          their approval and application.
        </p>
  <p>
          We assume that patch donators
          are familiar with CVS, diff and patch.  If you are not
          familiar with those tools, or want additional information
          about how things work, here are some links:

  </ul>
  <p>
          Geronimo, if it passes the incubation stage, will become an
          <a href="http://www.apache.org/">Apache</a> project.
          As an Apache project, the Apache approach to open source community and
          development will apply.  If you aren't familar with  how things are done
          by Apache projects, please familiarize yourself with the information
          available on the <a href="http://www.apache.org">site</a>.
          Here are some good selections from the Jakarta project site that 
          should help you understand the Apache community process :

  <h3>Mailing Lists</h3>
  <div style="margin-left: 0 ; border: 2px">
  <p>
          Apache Geronimo has two mailing lists of interest, the 
          geronimo-dev list, where all the discussion 
          occurs, and the geronimo-cvs list, which receives commit mails each 
          time a commit is made to the incubator-geronimo <a href="#Where+is+the+source+and+download%3F">CVS</a> module.
  
        </p>
  <p>
          You can subscribe to the mailing lists by sending an email to
          one or both of the following addresses : 
        </p>
  <ul>
          
  <li>
  <a href="mailto:geronimo-dev-subscribe@incubator.apache.org">geronimo-dev-subscribe@incubator.apache.org</a>
  </li>
          
  <li>
  <a href="mailto:geronimo-cvs-subscribe@incubator.apache.org">geronimo-cvs-subscribe@incubator.apache.org</a>
  </li>
        
  </ul>
  <p>
            To send a message to the Geronimo mailing list without subscribing, try the following link:
        </p>
  <ul>
          
  <li>
  <a href="mailto:geronimo-dev@incubator.apache.org">geronimo-dev@incubator.apache.org</a>
  </li>
        
  </ul>
  <p>
            
  <strong>However</strong>,
            unless you subscribe to the list, you may not get a response.  Subscribing to the list
            is how you join the project, and follow events.
        </p>
  <p>
            There is also a <a href="http://nagoya.apache.org/eyebrowse/SummarizeList?listId=140">mailing list archive</a>,
            where you can catch up on prior discussion.

          We have a number of code donations "on deck" which are being
          evaluated. Once those donations are processed, then they will
          be checked into the Apache Geronimo CVS module.
        </p>
  <p>
          The CVS module is named <span class="codefrag">incubator-geronimo</span>. Here is
          an example of checking out Apache Geronimo with the CVS
          command-line client:

  $ export CVSROOT=:pserver:anoncvs@cvs.apache.org:/home/cvspublic
  $ cvs login
  Logging in to :pserver:anoncvs@cvs.apache.org:2401/home/cvspublic
  CVS password:
  $ cvs checkout incubator-geronimo
  ...

  These are questions that have come up on the mailing list so far.  They are unofficial, but are best efforts by community members to record useful answers.
  </p>
  <p>
  Some questions are unanswered as yet.  Have an answer?  Please discuss it on the mailing list, and record the conclusion here.
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: I'd like to find out more and help etc. What do I do next?</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: Participation on the project is via the mailing list and the source code repository.  You join by joining the mailing list, and by participating in discussion. You help by contributing your ideas, enthusiasm, code, documentation, tests, and intangibles. 
  </p>
  <p>
  The fundamental tenet of the ASF is that Great Communities build great code. The emphasis is on Community; the code comes from that. If you want to help, just join the mailing list, see what needs to be done, and do it. 
  </p>
  <p>
  Welcome.  :-)
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: Where is the mailing list?  How do I subscribe?</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: The mailing list is geronimo-dev@incubator.apache.org.  You subscribe by sending e-mail to <a href="mailto:geronimo-dev-subscribe@incubator.apache.org">[geronimo-dev-subscribe@incubator.apache.org]</a>.
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: Is there an archive?</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: <a href="http://nagoya.apache.org/eyebrowse/SummarizeList?listId=140">[Apache J2EE Archives]</a>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: Can you mail me if you're interested in me helping.</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: That's not how open source communities generally work. To the people who have asked to be contacted if Apache are interested, it's unlikely that this will happen with all the huge interest that this has generated. Better to stay in touch with the mailing list.
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: Where is the Apache CVS module</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: incubator-geronimo <a href="http://cvs.apache.org/viewcvs/incubator-geronimo">[Browse CVS]</a>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: The CVS module is empty, is there an issue</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: No. The initial committers have not publicly released the base code. Be patient.
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: Will it involve JBoss code.</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: No.
  </p>
  <p>
  This is a new Apache project, running under Apache guidelines.  The Apache Software Foundation accepts only voluntary contributions of material from authors who possess the legal right to donate it.
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: Will it &lt;insert some technical phrase here&gt;?</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: It's probably worth holding these questions off for the moment.  This project is bringing together members and contributions from many existing J2EE communities, and is just starting to come together.
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: What are the rules for Geronimo?</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: See the <a href="http://incubator.apache.org/">[Apache Incubator]</a> web site.
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: What's the website?</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: <a href="http://incubator.apache.org/projects/geronimo.html">[Apache J2EE Project]</a>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: What tools do I need to learn?</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: CVS. patch. Using a mail list.
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: Relationship to JBoss and in particular, the JBoss source base.</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: Several (former) JBoss committers are Geronimo committers. The JBoss codebase cannot, and will not, be used, at all (it is LGPL).
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: Does Geronimo replace Tomcat, JSTL etc.</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: No. Geronimo includes other services like Tomcat or Jetty for the web container, OpenJMS for the JMS, Tyrex for the transaction manager etc. So Geroimo focusses on being the J2EE container allowing other services to drop in via JMX.
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: What other projects will Geronimo reuse?</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  A: We suspect in the grand scheme of things to reuse various existing open source projects. Anything which has a suitable BSD / ASF licence is up for grabs. e.g. the following is a likely list of the things well be using (though in no way is this definitive)...
  </p>
  <p>
  From the ASF licenced projects...
  </p>
  <ul>
  
  <li> MX4J for JMX </li>
    
  <li> Tomcat or Jetty for Web Container </li>
    
  <li> Axis for Web Services Stack </li>
    
  <li> James for email </li>
    
  <li> OJB for JDO </li>
    
  <li> commons-jndi for JNDI  </li>
  
  </ul>
  <p>
  As well as some non-ASF licenced stuff which is BSD licenced
  </p>
  <ul>
  
  <li> OpenJms for JMS </li>
  
  <li> Tyrex for Transaction Manager </li>
  
  </ul>
  <p>
  As well as the usual infrastructure...
  </p>
  <ul>
  
  <li> commons-logging / log4j for logging </li>
  
  <li> Xerces for XML parsing </li>
  
  <li> maybe more of JakartaCommons as needed </li>
  
  <li> Maven for building the distributions &amp; website </li>
  
  <li>JUnit for unit testing </li>
  
  </ul>
  <p>
  (1)  There is currently a JNDI implementation in Tomcat's CVS. It might be better to move this to Jakarta Commons so we can all work &amp; extend it - there are various features from Jetty and OpenEjb we'd like to add?
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong> Q: Administration Overview such as an amalgamation of many projects or one large project with subject areas.</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p>
  
  <strong>Q: Timeline to 1.0 (what does it include).</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p> 
  
  <strong>Q: Will Geronimo be compliant with Sun's CTS.</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p> 
  
  <strong>Q: What is Geronimo's Architectural vision and what does the back plane look like (i.e., is it JMX based?).</strong>
  
  </p>
  <p> 
  
  <strong>Q: What standards are targeted and which are under active development?</strong>

  <h3>Section 0 : Rationale</h3>
  <div style="margin-left: 0 ; border: 2px">
  <p>
      The Java 2, Enterprise Edition (J2EE) platform is employed widely by
      organizations implementing enterprise applications. It is commonly used in
      business-to-consumer and most recently in Web service deployments.  Most of
      the largest business organizations today have deployed applications on a
      J2EE platform.
      </p>
  <p>
      While the J2EE specification is implemented by a number of large and small
      vendors, there is no open source J2EE container available with a BSD or
      BSD-derived licence nor is there an open source project today that provides
      a fully compliant implementation.  Verifiable compliance with the J2EE
      specification is important to business because it ensures that applications
      deployed by developers are portable and interoperable across J2EE providers.
      As a result organizations large and small have felt compelled to pay
      thousands of dollars to commercial vendors in order to deploy applications
      based on J2EE compliant servers.
      </p>
  <p>
      The Apache foundation supports several projects that implement pieces of the
      J2EE platform such as Servlets, JSP, Tag Libraries, and a Web services
      stack. However, Apache does not currently support a J2EE project.
      </p>
  <p>
      The aim of the project is to produce a large and healthy community of J2EE
      developers tasked with the development of an open source, certified J2EE
      server which is ASF licensed and passes Sun's TCK reusing the best ASF/BSD
      licensed code available today and adding new code to complete the J2EE
      stack.

  <h3>Section 0.1 : criteria</h3>
  <div style="margin-left: 0 ; border: 2px">
  <p>
      We feel that this project has a good chance for success as the following
      project aspects are carefully considered :
      </p>
  <ul>
      
  <li>
      Meritocracy: The project will be meritocratic - the usual Apache
      meritocracy rules would apply.
      </li>
  
      
  <li>
      Community: The user community for this project is potentially massive.
      The initial developer community for this project consists of developers from
      Apache,  Castor, JBoss, mx4j, and OpenEJB projects. The aim is for this
      community to grow considerably once this project goes public.
      </li>
  
      
  <li>
      Core Developers: The initial developers are listed below and consist of
      some existing Apache committers together with committers from Castor,
      JBoss, mx4j  and OpenEJB.  We believe that as the project grows, the modular
      nature of the J2EE stack will require steady expansion of the committer
      group that is considered 'core' - thus providing a healthier, more robust
      developer community.
      </li>
  
      
  <li>
      Alignment: There is clear alignment with many existing Apache projects.
      From Jakarta projects such as Tomcat, James and log4j initially as well as
      possibly others along the way. J2EE now includes a web services stack and so
      there will be some alignment with the WS project, Axis in particular, along
      with the reuse of several XML projects. In addition the J2EE Server project
      may reuse other ASF/BSD licensed code which is not currently hosted in
      source form at Apache such as (at time of writing) mx4j, openjms and tyrex.
      </li>
      
  </ul>
  <p>
      However we see the J2EE Server project as a separate project to existing
      Apache projects, serving two primary roles
      </p>
  <ul>
      
  <li>
      integration of various existing and new code bases into a J2EE stack,
      with those codebases existing both inside and outside of the project
      </li>
      
  <li>
      certification of the J2EE stack
      </li>
      
  </ul>
  <p>
      Note that the J2EE server project can happily support competition within the
      J2EE services stack (for example, offering choices for elements such as the
      servlet engine like Tomcat or Jetty, or some new JTA implementation versus
      Tyrex or some new JMS implementation versus OpenJMS etc).

      with reusing lots of the currently available high quality J2EE open source
      code out there which is ASF/BSD licensed.
      </li>
      
  <li>
      Inexperience with open source: The initial community is made up of
      existing Apache, Castor, JBoss, mx4j , and OpenEJB committers.
      </li>
      
  <li>
      Homogeneous developers: The current list of committers represents
      developers from various backgrounds and open source projects, employed by
      various companies and based around the globe in the US, Europe, Asia and
      Australia.  There will be no majority bloc, at least from the start.
      </li>
      
  <li>
      Reliance on salaried developers: None of the initial developers are
      currently paid to work on the J2EE project.
      </li>
      
  <li>
      No ties to other Apache products: The J2EE Server project is
      complementary to existing technologies at Apache. Indeed it will integrate
      many of those technologies in an effort to provide a code base that can be
      J2EE certified according to the JCP process.
      </li>
      
  <li>
      A fascination with the Apache brand: The committers are interested in
      developing a healthy open source community around an ASF/BSD licensed J2EE
      certified server, whether Apache is the right place or not.  The aspects of
      Apache that attract this effort are the experienced stewardship of open
      source projects by the ASF, the non-profit status of the ASF for TCK
      certification, and the existing Java community that has been a longstanding
      part of the ASF.

  <h3>Section 1 : scope of the project</h3>
  <div style="margin-left: 0 ; border: 2px">
  <p>
      There are two main aspects to this Apache project :
      </p>
  <ul>
      
  <li>
      a complete J2EE certified server which is fully ASF/BSD licensed and
      backed by a healthy open source community.
      </li>
      
  <li>
      to create a fully modular J2EE stack so that the Apache community can use
      whichever parts of the J2EE stack they require separate from the J2EE server
      project.

  <p>
      There are several potential initial contributions. Upon formation of the
      project our first action will be an open, public call for contribution and
      comment from the J2EE community.  Because of recent circumstances in the
      J2EE OSS community, all code proposed for inclusion must be publicly
      reviewed and open to public comment.
