First of all, and I think I can speak here for the whole Jakarta community, I would like to thank Henri Yandell for his dedication and great job he has done as our PMC Chair. I hope I can fulfill the job as good as Henri did. Since Jakarta is quite big and therefor hard to track all activity, I scheduled a BOF Session for the Jakarta Community. This BOF has a couple of goals :

+
  • Create an overview of Jakarta projects / community.
  • +
  • Activity on components
  • +
  • Possible future directions for Jakarta.
  • +
  • Collect current issues, problems and worries about Jakarta
  • +

    + +
    + + Agila + +

    We had a formal vote to retire Agila from the incbutor. The main reason for the inactivity in Agila is that the development takes place in Ode. Still need to do the official request to the incubator.

    + + BCEL + +

    BCEL was part of the GSoC program. The student went half way through and now BCEL trunk has support for JDK 1.5. Unfortunately the student did not pass the finals.

    + +

    Unfortunately only few PMC members (at least two) are on the development list at the moment.

    + + BSF + +

    BSF is heading towards a release. Currently they have prepared 2.4.0-rc2 and expect to go final in about a week.

    + + + Commons +

    Nothing general

    + + Commons Attributes +

    Leo Sutic, the main active coder for Attributes, decided to call it a day and so a stable release (2.3) of the current code was made so as not to leave lots of people sitting on a nightly build. Newer versions of Java make Attributes obsolete and the component is now considered to be in maintenance +mode.

    + + Commons JEXL +

    JEXL 1.1 was released with a couple of new features and bug fixes.

    + + Commons JCI +

    Jakarta Commons JCI was part of the GSoC program. Maven integration and +support for more compilers was on the cards. Unfortunately the student did +not pass the finals.

    + + Commons Modeler +

    Modeler 2.0 was released, especially to accomodate the Geronimo Team. It contains a number of fixes and new functionality.

    + + Commons SCXML +

    SCXML had is first official release, version 0.5.

    + + +
    +
    +
    + +
    + +

    In early June we released Alpha2 of HttpCore.

    + +

    HttpNIO has been made a sub-component of HttpCore as they will share the same release cycle. The overall design of !HttpNIO is finished and currently undergoing review. Parts of the HttpCore API are also subject to intensive review as a result of the NIO activities.

    +

    HttpCookie has been redesigned in a first step.

    + +
    +
    + +
    + +
    + +

    Release 1.3.0 was voted on and approved. Expecting a release soon.

    + +
    +
    + +
    + +
    + +

    There was a discussion triggered by Oliver Zeigermann on the general list on the future of the slide project. There is a lack of maintainers and because of the complexity of the project, it's hard to attract new developers.

    + +
    +
    + +
    + +
    + +

    The Velocity project is making plans to become a TLP. See http://wiki.apache.org/jakarta/TLPVelocity for the initial draft of the proposal. Currently a vote is taking place on general & velocity mailinglist for community approval of the TLP Velocity move. Proposed chair is Henning Schmiedehausen. On September 14th, we released beta1 of Velocity 1.5. We hope to release RC1 after a mini-Velocity hackathon October 9 and 10.
