Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "DirectMemoryProposal" by SimoneTripodi
Date Mon, 19 Sep 2011 18:40:58 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

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

The "DirectMemoryProposal" page has been changed by SimoneTripodi:

New page:
= DirectMemory =

== Abstract ==
The following proposal is about Apache DirectMemory, a Java OpenSource multi-layered cache
implementation featuring off-heap memory storage (a-la Terracotta BigMemory) to enable caching
of Java objects without degrading JVM performance. Its main purpose is to act as a second
level cache (after a heap based one) to collect large amounts of data without filling up the
Java heap and thus avoiding long garbage collection cycles. Included in the box is a small
set of utility classes to easily handle off-heap memory buffers.

== Proposal ==

== Background ==
DirectMemory is a project born in the 2011 thanks to Raffaele P. Guidi initial effort under
 [[|GitHub]] and already licensed under the
Apache License 2.0.

== Rationale ==

= Current Status =

== Meritocracy ==
As a majority of the initial project members are existing ASF committers, we recognize the
desirability of running the project as a meritocracy.  We are eager to engage other members
of the community and operate to the standard of meritocracy that Apache emphasizes; we believe
this is the most effective method of growing our community and enabling widespread adoption.

== Core Developers ==
In alphabetical order:

 * Christian Grobmeier <grobmeier at apache dot org>
 * Maurizio Cucchiara <mcucchiara at apache dot org>
 * Olivier Lamy <olamy at apache dot org>
 * Raffaele P. Guidi <raffaele dot p dot guidi at gmail dot com>
 * Simone Gianni <simoneg at apache dot org>
 * Simone Tripodi <tommaso at apache dot org>
 * Tommaso Teofili <simonetripodi at apache dot org>

== Alignment ==
The purpose of the project is to develop and maintain DirectMemory implementation that can
be used by other Apache projects.

= Known Risks =
== Orphaned Products ==

== Inexperience with Open Source ==
All of the committers have experience working in one or more open source projects inside and
outside ASF.

== Homogeneous Developers ==
The list of initial committers are geographically distributed across the Europe with no one
company being associated with a majority of the developers.  Many of these initial developers
are experienced Apache committers already and all are experienced with working in distributed
development communities.

== Reliance on Salaried Developers ==
To the best of our knowledge, none of the initial committers are being paid to develop code
for this project.

== Relationships with Other Apache Products ==

== A Excessive Fascination with the Apache Brand ==
OGNL fits naturally in the ASF because :
