Subject Re: [ANNOUNCE] Release of Apache MyFaces Portlet Bridge 3.0.0-alpha (Portlet Bridge for JSF 2.0)
Date Wed, 02 May 2012 23:30:49 GMT
    Progress hasn't gotten too much further then this.  I have 
implemented a reachitected bridge that opens up the internals for 
replacement/overriding that is sitting in a branch pretty much waiting 
for me to get the time to package it for release.  However though having 
a cleaner extensible impl it doesn't push the function any farther into 
providing full 2.0 or 2.1 support than alpha did (though given that the 
alpha release did support ajax and such alot of the important basics are 
already there.)  I did the reachitecture in part to entice the two other 
players in this space (liferay and jboss) to maybe join up with me to 
collaborate/extend/contribute to this work.  However as far as I know 
each has decided to push forward with their own (somewhat)  independent 
work.  In terms of actually doing a JSR for defining the 2.0/2.1 
function I think the odds are pretty low.  The EG participation at the 
end of the 301/329 pretty much dwindled to nothing and I/Oracle would 
need significant help to move this forward at/in a reasonable timeframe.
