> * Ensure existing documentation (of which there is a

> that the documentation has been separated out.
> * v 0.1 - source code combination and rationalization (as
> per above).
> * v 0.2 - refactor components to JSR-299, while maintaining
> backwards compatibility for bootstrapping.
> * v 0.3 - JPA persistor ported from Hibernate to Apache
> OpenJPA.
> * v 0.4 - integrate with JMX for runtime management;
> provide profiling of client/server and webapps (eg
> serialization vs domain logic vs domain services vs object
> store timings).
> * v 0.5 - write contract tests for all major plugin APIs
> (object stores, authentication, authorization, remoting).
> 
> We also have a number of overarching goals:
> 
> * steadily improve the code coverage
> * clean up the APIs. Some of the code dates back to Java
> 1.1 (at one point in time the code was cross-compiled into
> J# code); so there is opportunity to use more generics and
> remove use of arrays
> * steadily reduce the amount of proprietary code, and the
> code size in general; use newer libraries such as
> google-collections more extensively.

> As well as the work going on to create the Isis project

> 
> * Scimpi web application release.
> * Introduce dynamic view design into the DnD viewer.
> * [[http://wicket.apache.org|Wicket]] viewer release.
> * NOSQL persistor release (using [[http://couchdb.apache.org|CouchDB]], [[http://www.mongodb.org/|MongoDB]]
and [[http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/berkeleydb/overview/index.html|BerkeleyDB]]).
> * SQL persistor release.

> Also primary developer for sister projects plugins
> (!RestfulObjects viewer, !WicketObjects viewer, JPA
> !ObjectStore, !TestedObjects "viewer", Groovy support).
> Part-time consultant/advisor to the Irish Government project

> 
> Additional committers are:
> 
> * Kevin Meyer, South Africa-based freelance developer and

> Other than the Apache dependencies, all other open source
> projects used all have ASL v2.0 (eg Google Collections,
> cglib, objenesis), BSD (eg Hamcrest, ASM), MPL (eg
> javassist) or similarly permissive licenses. We do also have
> a soft dependency on an LGPL-licensed library (Hibernate)
> but during migration would look to migrate to the Apache
> equivalent (OpenJPA).
