Subject Apache River Roadmap
Date Fri, 09 Feb 2007 00:44:39 GMT

I'm a Jini/JavaSpaces newbie.

I've been observing a bit on this list and am quite excited about the
potential of Apache River.

I lived through years of J2EE, SOA, ESBs, etc. and could have lived
through years of Jini/JavaSpaces - this saddens me.

I view Apache River as the second (and likely final) chance at taking
Jini/JavaSpaces mainstream. I saw somewhere on this list someone
question if this was even a goal. Seems rather insane to me for it NOT
to be the goal. Why else did you torture yourselves getting legal
approval from Sun for Apache 2 license, getting accepted as a podling
etc.? There is a lot of buzz around Jini/JavaSpaces right now - people
are watching and the clock is tick tick ticking.

other than what is there now:

Step 1: March 1 - Working build with Apache River package names (or

As I consider investing in Jini/JavaSpaces the trend line of Apache
River is *very* important to me. I'm happy to help a little as learn
more, but I have no idea where to start.
