  === Community aspects: ===
  Recently code submissions from outside the current development team were received by users
from different countries and backgrounds. The submissions are currently under review and are
under consideration for an upcoming release. This gives us reasons to believe that the community
is growing and demand for Empire-db is rising.

M1 released on June 4th.

of Pennsylvania joined the community and are exploring ways to contribute to the Java stacks.

- '''M1:''' The community has identified and resolved 34 JIRA issues towards the first release.
The M1 release was accompanied by detailed documentation allowing any external developer to
download and configure the various implementations of the StockTrader application, and demonstrate
interoperability between the various platforms. The Stonehenge project was well received at
JavaOne and had positive mentions in the press. The Glassfish/Metro based Stocktrader was
contributed towards the end of M1. It is currently being moved to trunk in M2.

  '''M2:''' An extensive discussion ensued about the various security feature and scenarios
to implement as an extension for the StockTrader applications. The community identified which
features of the various security web services specs implemented by each platform can be used
in M2. An overall spec was approved on the list by the respective members of each platform.
Currently there are 17 JIRA issues marked as M2.
  
+ '''Graduation map:''' 1- M1 release: done 2- M2: IN the April report, M2 was described as
"Another iteration of improvements for StockTrader would constitute the second release (M2)".
M2 now is clearly defined as extending security features in StockTrader, development is well
on track for a release in Sept. 3- M3: In the April report, M3 was described as "A third release
would be either adding more interop functionality to StockTrader, or implementing a new sample
application". M3 is not discussed yet, however with the momentum we have we might prefer to
execute it after graduation.

  Given the M1 and M2 momentum, we believe we are very close to graduation requirements. The
only issues left before graduation is completing M2, along with the needed documentation to
demonstrate interoperability between the stacks.
