Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "December2008" by NiclasHedhman
Date Mon, 08 Dec 2008 09:27:06 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 NiclasHedhman:

  = RAT =
  = River =
+ River is aimed at the development and advancement of the Jini technology core infrastructure.
Jini technology is a service oriented architecture that defines a programming model which
both exploits and extends Java technology to enable the construction of secure, distributed
systems which are adaptive to change.
+ In November, Niclas Hedhman stepped up as a new Mentor for the project. He thinks River/Jini
is too important to be ignored. This resulted in an extended discussion of what should actually
happen with River. Quite a few voices have been heard, and a summary of the consensus is probably;
+  * River needs new goals. The community is unable to define a single goal or agree on a
couple of them.
+  * People should not talk the talk, if they can't walk the walk. The infamous 'itch' is
obviously not strong enough in any particular area, not enough low-hanging fruits so to speak.
Niclas presented a simple solution; Branch trunk and let those who are active to make the
structural changes needed for a sustained future. Hopefully, those more experienced will also
get excited and help out when they can.
+  * Consolidation of external Jini projects. There are many external Jini projects. Some
of those provide same or similar solutions. Many in the community thinks that these should
merge, possibly under the River umbrella.
+ All in all, River project is slow, but we think we have a lot of willingness in the user
community, and just need the lever to exploit this. The goal for now, up until the next report,
is to get us going on Apache River "New Generation", where we indeed shake off the Sun heritage
and start moving forward.
+ Incubating since December 2006
