Subject Latest draft for review: OpenJPA is graduated to Top Level Project
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2007 17:48:43 GMT
Here's the latest draft announcement I'm planning on making to the mailing list. Comments please.

I'm pleased to announce that the incubator has recommended, and the  
Apache board has accepted, a resolution to create the OpenJPA Top  
Level Project.

OpenJPA is a project that implements Object Relational Mapping, and  
currently implements the standard JCP JSR-220 Java Persistence API  
(JPA). The latest release passes the JCP TCK for JSR-220 100%,  
meaning it is fully compliant with the standard.

OpenJPA is based on a contribution by BEA of the mapping engine and  
JPA interface from the popular Kodo project. In an interesting  
turnabout, the latest release of Kodo is now dependent on OpenJPA.

During its incubation at Apache, OpenJPA has attracted support from a  
diverse set of contributors, committers, and users from independent  
individuals and companies, including several Apache projects. The  
project has learned how to govern itself and has produced two  
releases while in incubation.

The community plans shortly to release version 1.0.0 of OpenJPA,  
reflecting the maturity and production quality of the code base.

To assist in developing OpenJPA applications, plugin modules are  
available for the maven software project management and comprehension  
tool. Other plugins for popular IDE's and development tools are being  

Many other projects have now adopted OpenJPA to provide the Object  
Relational Mapping for their needs, including Apache ActiveMQ, BEA  
Kodo, BEA WebLogic Server, Apache Camel, Apache Geronimo, Apache Ode,  
Apache OpenEJB, and IBM WebSphere Application Server.

Additionally, OpenJPA has been integrated with numerous other  
frameworks including Spring Framework, GlassFish, JOnAS Application  
Server, Sun Java System Application Server.
