Subject [ANNOUNCE] DeltaSpike - the future of MyFaces CODI (is bright)
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2011 23:44:12 GMT
The Apache MyFaces PMC is pleased to announce a proposal (in cooperation
with JBoss and CDISource) for a new Apache incubator project called
"DeltaSpike".

The first goal of the DeltaSpike project is to create an unified base for
portable CDI extensions like CODI, Seam3, etc.
Another goal is the true portability amongst different servers. A large set
of regression tests will ensure the compatibility with various server
environments like OpenWebBeans and Weld in combination with different
servlet containers like Apache Tomcat as well as JavaEE servers like Apache
TomEE, Glassfish, JBossAS, Resin, etc.

A lot of our concepts in CODI are very innovative and we plan to include
them in DeltaSpike (depending on the discussions during the incubation
phase).
One of the first CODI features DeltaSpike will implement is for example the
possibility to 'deactivate' parts of the Extensions coming with a
CDI-Extension library (ClassDeactivator).
This concept allows users to decide which parts they like to use from which
extension library.

As soon as DeltaSpike is a stable TLP (Apache top level project), we plan
to create CODI v2 which removes all parts of CODI v1 which are available in
DeltaSpike and the rest will be ported to the API of DeltaSpike.
A lot of us already use CODI in several projects and therefore you can be
sure that we will continue to improve CODI v1 and the migration to CODI v2
will be well documented and as easy as possible.
We will also coordinate our CODI v1 releases to ensure that DeltaSpike
incubator releases and CODI will run smoothly inside the same project.

The initial DeltaSpike team consists of community members of several
portable CDI extensions and all of you are very welcome to join the effort.

Kind regards,
The Apache MyFaces PMC
