Subject Google Brillo, Weave
Date Thu, 28 May 2015 20:38:10 GMT
Hi All,

Does anybody have any insight as to what Google's announced "Weave"
platform / programming language will entail?
It's pretty sad to see, 15 years on, yet another attempt at creating a
cross-platform distributed services architecture / service description
And here Apache River sits - with no visibility or acknowledgement from
the broader community.

I'm excited, on the one hand, to see what they have come up with
technically, but it would be very frustrating if it's functionally
similar to River.
I mean, it's not like we don't already have 10+ separate, incompatible
service description and discovery mechanisms already.

warm regards,
