Dear Wiki user,

http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/JtPatternFrameworkProposal

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  A) The pattern oriented framework implements and/or facilitates the implementation of
  well-known design patterns like Gang Of Four design patterns (GoF) and J2EE Design patterns.
The framework itself  is conceived and implemented based on design patterns (from the ground
up). The framework also facilitates and accelerates the implementation of applications based
on design patterns.
  
- B) The framework architecture is based on a messaging design pattern: framework objects
+ b) The framework architecture is based on a messaging design pattern: framework objects
  are able to interchange information and perform computations by sending, receiving and
  processing messages. A messaging API provides strong encapsulation and loose coupling;
  framework components can be interchangeably plugged into complex framework applications
using a “lego/messaging” architecture. The framework takes full advantage of the power
and simplicity of the messaging design pattern/API.

  ==== Meritocracy ====
  
- 
  Meritocracy will be fostered and encouraged within the project. We will follow the guidelines
of
  the Apache Software Foundation. Community contributions and feedback are always welcome.
  We also plan to actively encourage individuals to get involved in the project.
  
  
+ ==== Community ====
+ 
+ 
+ One of the next objectives is to continue growing an active community of users and contributors.
It is expected that community will continue to grow. So far the main focus has been the completion
of the core framework functionality. We see Jt becoming an ASF incubator project as a next
step in its evolution. We plan to open the project to a wider audience in order to achieve
a larger and more diverse community.
+ 
+ 
  ==== Alignment ====
  
- 
- ==== Core Developers ====
+ Jt is aligned well with existing Apache projects and technologies. The framework
+ has been integrated with several Apache technologies including Struts (MVC design pattern)
and Axis (Web Services Adapter). The Jt automated Wizard capabilities has also been built
based on Apache products.
  
  
- ==== Orphaned products ====
+ ==== Known Risks ====
+ 
+ Orphaned products: The projects has been growing as an open source project for several years.The
team is committed to continue this work therefore the risk is fairly small.
+ A preliminary Java Specification Request (JSR) is being worked on.
  
  
- ==== Inexperience with open source ====
+ Inexperience with open source: Some of the current contributors have experience working
with open sourceprojects and communities. The team expects to gain additional experience via
the ASF incubator community.
  
- ==== Homogeneous developers ====
+ Homogenous developers: The people involved with the project work for several organizations
who are geographically distributed across the world.
+ 
+ Reliance on salaried developers: This project does not rely on salaried contributors. They
work on a volunteer basis.
+ 
+ No ties to other Apache products: As described in the alignment section, this framework
has been integrated with many Apache products. The project expects to adopt the Apache License
2.0
+ 
+ 
+ An excessive  fascination with the Apache brand: This project started outside the Apache
Software Foundation.  It has been evolving for several years. Hopefully other Apache projects
and initiatives will benefit from the capabilities provided by Pattern oriented framework.
  
  
  
- ==== Reliance on salaried developers ====
+ ==== Documentation and sources ====
+ 
+ Project information and complete documentation/sources can be downloaded from
+ http://jt.dev.java.net/. java.net forums and mailings lists are not used.
+ We plan to move to a new location which should serve as a central location
+ for the project.
+ 
+ ==== Apache sponsor ====
+ 
+ TBD.
+ 
+ ==== ASF resources to be created ====
  
  
- 
- ==== No ties to other Apache products ====
+ - Mailing lists
+ - A subversion repository
+ - A JIRA issue tracker
  
  
- ==== A fascination with the Apache brand ====
+ ==== Getting involved ====
  
+ Please send a message to the list if you are interested in joining this project
+ or using the framework for your particular application.
