Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "August2007" by cwei
Date Mon, 06 Aug 2007 17:08:18 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by cwei:

+ Description - XAP is a client side declarative Ajax framework for building and deploying
rich internet applications
+ Date of entry - June, 2006
+ The top three items to resolve in last report have seen very good progress:
+    1. Dojo 0.9 migration - XAP is currently using Dojo 0.4 as the default Ajax toolkit.
Dojo 0.9 is a complete rewriet of Dojo. Though it is not compatible with Dojo 0.4, Dojo 0.9
seems to have fixed many problems of Dojo and is likely to become a solid foundation for future
Ajax development. XAP developers are investigating whether/when/how to migrate to Dojo 0.9.

+    2. Release - XAP has made one release within the community so far (XAP 0.3 release on
March 2007); 
+    3. Growth of community - XAP community is growing, we see more and more contributions
in many forms from people other than the initial committers: feedback on the mailing lists,
documentation and code patches... The commuity has voted to add a new committer. 
+ Community aspects:
+     * Contributions from various non-committers continued in areas such as bug reports,
code patches, and discussions; 
+     * Vote of a new committer passed
+     * Coach Wei gave a talk on Apache XAP and Declarative Ajax at AjaxWorld Conference in
march 2007 at NYC;
+     * We have reviewed the web site tracking and added mechanism to collect XAP download
+     * jQuery integration is done. XAP customers can leverage jQuery as well - plugin available
both from jQuery website and XAP website( 
+ Code aspects:
+     * Significant work went into xModify - now we have a 3KB engine (leverages jQuery) for
declaratively "ajaxify" HTML web applications. Customers can get "Ajax" result without writing
a single line of Javascript, by using the 3KB "xModify with jQuery" module. 
+     * Web site has been updated
