> Forest Hill, MD –4 August 2015– The Apache Software Foundation (ASF), the
> all-volunteer developers, stewards, and incubators of more than 350 Open
> Source projects and initiatives, announced today the immediate availability
> of Apache™ Zest™ Java Edition v.2.1, the Composite Oriented Programming
> platform leveraging Java.
>
> As Java is not an object-oriented language (thereby limiting code reuse
> and recycling), Composite Oriented Programming (COP) defines a whole new
> paradigm of how software is written, where INTENT is expressed and enforced
> by execution environment, helping developers to be disciplinary and in
> return improving efficiency and clarity. Composite Oriented Programming
> allows developers to work with 'fragments', smaller than classes, and
> 'compose' fragments into larger 'composites' which acts like the regular
> objects. Apache Zest also tackles the enforcement of application
> composition, i.e. composites are declared in modules, modules are contained
> in layers and access between how layers are controlled/enforced.
>
> "Apache Zest is a completely new way of writing software", said Niclas
> Hedhman, Vice President of Apache Zest. "Object orientation isn't the
> appropriate abstraction, as objects in real application get too bloated and
> inter-dependent. By working with fragments, it is possible to break the
> objects down the respective roles that objects typically have, and mix
> those roles across different types of objects."
>
> Apache Zest integrates aspect oriented programming, persistence,
> indexing/query, architecture enforcement and dependency injection.
>
> "This 2.1 release is an important stepping stone towards the future," said
> Paul Merlin, Apache Zest Release Manager. "Compatibility with Qi4j 2.0 API
> has been maintained, but all documentation and other references are fully
> converted to Apache Zest, and in Zest 3.0 the transformation will be
> completed."
>
> "Apache Zest challenges us Java developers to think differently, but
> enables increased productivity and fewer bugs," said Jiri Jetmar, member of
> the Apache Zest Project Management Committee and long-time Zest user. "We
> find that nearly all boiler-plate code, often found in JPA applications are
> completely eradicated, without mapping configuration and other details that
> just slows you down."
>
>
> "Apache Zest's slogan --'New Energy for Java - Classes are Dead, Long Live
> Interfaces' -- truly captures what Apache Zest is really about: designing
> software efficiently," added Hedhman. "We are now looking forward to Zest
> 3.0, with many new interesting features, such Messaging integration, Event
> Sourcing, Timeseries, Geospatial Support, and much more. All with Java 8
> goodness."

> Zest originated as Qi4j in 2007, roughly four years following Rickard
> Öberg's inception of Composite Oriented Programming (COP). In early 2007,
> Hedhman convinced Öberg to start a new Open Source project around this
> concept, and Qi4j was born. Since the project's was first announced at the
> 2007 Oredev conference, 28 people have contributed source to the project,
> and many others have participated on mailing lists regarding direction,
> concepts and design.
