>--------------------------------
>Apache Fleece Proposal
>
>Abstract
>
>Apache Fleece is an implementation of JSR-353 (JavaTM API for JSON
>Processing).
>
>Proposal
>
>Apache Fleece will consist of a number of modules. Mainly an
>implementation
>of JSR-353 but also a set of usefule modules to help with the usage of
>JSR-353 (surely a mapping module and a jaxrs provider module).
>
>Background
>
>JSon being more and more important JavaEE 7 specified an API to read and
>create JSon objects/arrays.
>
>Apache Fleece builds on this specification a potential base to do Json at
>Apache (hopefully it will be integrated with CXF for instance).
>
>Rationale
>
>There is not yet a Json related project at Apache but a lot of projects
>rely on some specific implementions (jettison, jackson, others...).
>Proposing a default would be great. The other point is a set of Apache
>projects related to JavaEE (CXF, TomEE, Geronimo, Axis2...) will need an
>implementation. Having one built at Apache is a really nice to have.
>
>Initial Goals
>
>The initial goal of the Apache Fleece project is to get a JSR-353
>compliant
>implementation
>
>Current Status
>
>Initial codebase was developped on github but designed to be integrated in
>Apache.
>
>Meritocracy
>
>Initial community will be mainly composed of already Apache committers so
>meritocracy is already something well known.

>Community
>
>Initial community will be composed of TomEE community for sure, hopefully
>CXF and potentially all JSon users of Apache.

>Several Apache project will need a JSR-353 implementation. Having a

>Known Risks

>Source and IP Submission Plan

>Initial sources are under Apache license v2.

>Side note: it was really developed to be integrated in this project
