Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "MonitoringProposal" by OlivierLamy

Dear Wiki user,

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

The "MonitoringProposal" page has been changed by OlivierLamy:

New page:
= Apache Monitoring =

== Abstract ==

Commons-monitoring aims to provide a simple but extensible monitoring solution for Java applications.

Monitoring provides two kind of components :

  * Apache Monitoring Core to provide a base framework for monitoring/recording a Java application.

  * Default based plugins

  * Apache Monitoring base reporting web application (provide a basic reporting on recorded

== Background ==

Currently, Apache Monitoring source is hosted in Apache Commons Sandbox scm. The development
has begun few years ago but goes to dormant statut.

== Rationale ==

Currently users who need some monitoring need to use some non Open Source solutions or GPL
solutions. The goal is to provide a solution based on the Apache License.

== Initial Goals ==

Monitoring doesn't have any release currently. The initial goal of this project will be to
build community in the spirit of the "Apache Way", and to address new features and bug-fixes
of the first releases.

=== Current Status ===

Intent of the proposal is to build a diverse community of developers around Monitoring. Monitoring
started in the Apache Commons Sandbox, driven in the spirit of open source and we would like
to continue in this spirit by, for example, encouraging contributors from a variety of organizations.

=== Community ===

Monitoring stakeholders desire to expand the user and developer base of Monitoring further
in the future

== Known Risks ==

=== Orphaned Products ===

Monitoring is a new product. So without community adoption the risks of it being orphaned

=== Inexperience with Open Source ===

The code has been developed in Apache Commons Sandbox mostly by Romain Manni-Bucau and Olivier
Lamy who intimately familiar with the Apache model for open-source development and is experienced
with working with new contributors. 

=== Homogeneous Developers ===

The initial set of committers is from a small set of organizations. However, we expect that
once approved for incubation, the project will attract new contributors from diverse organizations
and will thus grow organically. The participation of developers from several different organizations
in the mailing list is a strong indication for this assertion.

=== Reliance on Salaried Developers ===

It is expected that Monitoring will be developed on salaried and volunteer time, although
all of the initial developers will work on it mainly on salaried time.

=== Relationships with Other Apache Products ===

Apache Monitoring depends upon other Apache Projects: Velocity and multiple Apache Commons
components and build systems like Maven.

=== A Fascination with the Apache Brand ===

The reason for joining Apache is to foster a healthy community of contributors and consumers
around the project. This is facilitated by ASF and that is the primary reason we would like
Monitoring to become an Apache project.

== Documentation ==


== Initial Source ==

== Source and Intellectual Property Submission Plan ==

The initial source is already Apache 2.0 licensed.

== External Dependencies ==

The required external dependencies are all Apache License or compatible licenses. Following
components with non-Apache licenses are enumerated :

== Cryptography ==

Monitoring does not depend upon any cryptography tools or libraries.

Other Resources

The existing code already has unit and integration tests so we would like a Jenkins instance
to run them whenever a new patch is submitted. This can be added after project creation.
