Subject Re: Name options (was Re: ARI, Atom Reference Implementation [Proposal])
Date Thu, 25 May 2006 02:10:40 GMT
The project will consist of three distinct components

a. An Atom parser/serializer.  This is the Axiom-based code that is
available in the tar referenced by the proposal

b. An Atom Publishing Protocol Client... likely taking the form of a set
of utility/helper objects based on the Commons HttpClient

c. An Atom Publishing Protocol Server... likely taking the form of a set
of interfaces and utility objects intended to allow any application to
provide an "atom interface".

Ultimately, I would also like to see an "Atom store" developed.  The
Atom store is a data persistent layer built around the Atom data model
and publishing protocol.
