Subject For review: OpenJPA is graduated to Top Level Project
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2007 10:06:08 GMT
This is a 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, for  
the standard JCP JSR-220 Java Persistence API (JPA). The working code  
base 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 several  
independent individuals and companies. The project has learned how to  
govern itself and has produced two releases while in incubation.

The community plans to shortly 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 are being developed.

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