Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "September2010" by TomHobbs

Dear Wiki user,

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

The "September2010" page has been changed by TomHobbs.


  = River  =
- (project add text here)
+ Apache River is a distributed computing architecture, based on the JSK Starter Kit Source
code donated by Sun Microsystems, for the Jini Specification. While generally referred to
as a Service Architecture, it might be more easily explained to those familiar with Dependency
Injection as a Protocol Independent, Distributed Dependency Injection Architecture, suited
to both hardware and software. Instead of depending on Protocols directly for communication,
everything is abstracted behind a Java interface, allowing protocols and implementations to
be swapped freely, programming languages other than Java can also participate.
- Signed off by mentor:
+ River has been appointed an additional mentor and has seen much increased activity on the
mailing list in recent weeks and months.
+ The next release 2.2.0 is scheduled for December, although some discussion on whether this
is a major release or not continues.
+ The Incubator PMC and Apache River PPMC have approved one new committer for the project,
the votes passed in August.
+ Current development efforts are still focused on a Provider with the
following features:
+  * Dynamic Grants at Runtime, based on CodeSource, Code Signer Certificate chains , ProtectionDomain
or ClassLoader.
+  * Dynamic Revoke of Grant's at Runtime
+ Reviewing newly donated code updates and patches, including:
+  * New CodebaseAccessClassLoader and associated changes
+  * New StreamServiceRegistrar Interface and other additions
+  * New ConcurrentDyamicPolicyProvider
+ Additionally:
+  * Work is being performed on TaskManager by our newest committer
+  * Increasing the test coverage, build process and Ant vs Maven work is ongoing
+  * Entry-level documentation is starting to appear
+ We are experiencing increasing interest on our developer mailing list.
+ 3 most important issues:
+  1. Code review and acceptance of newly submitted patches.
+  1. Streamline the build and test process.
+  1. Get our new committer svn accounts set up and grow our developer pool.
+ Signed off by mentor: Benson Margulies
