Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Streams 0.4-incubating release
Date Fri, 11 Nov 2016 21:46:13 GMT
The Apache Streams team is pleased to announce the release of Apache Streams 0.4-incubating. 

Sources are now available from Apache mirrors (
) and binaries are now available from the apache maven repository (
) and maven central (

Apache Streams (incubating) unifies a diverse world of digital profiles and online activities
into common formats and vocabularies, and makes these datasets accessible across a variety
of databases, devices, and platforms for streaming, browsing, search, sharing, and analytics

The project aims to provide simple two-way data interchange with popular REST APIs in activity
streams formats using a universal protocol. Streams compatibility with multiple storage back-ends
and ability to be embedded within any java-based real-time or batch data processing platform
ensures that its interoperability features come with little technical baggage.  

0.4-incubating adds the ability for consumer provider classes (twitter, instagram, facebook,
google+, rss, and youtube) to be run directly from a linux command prompt or an sbt shell,
with new documentation on the project website to help users get started collecting data without
needing to build from source first. Integration test coverage has been expanded to include
data pulls from third-party services using developer-supplied credentials, and reading/writing
data to databases launched within docker containers for testing purposes.  

0.4-incubating also adds classes and maven plugins capable of translating json schemas, which
might include dependencies on other json schemas within the same source tree or hosted anywhere
on the web, into source code (Java, Scala), and resource files to help configure popular data
frameworks (cassandra, elasticsearch, hbase, hive, and pig) to analyze json documents which
comply with those schemas.  

0.4-incubating also standardizes on Java 8, and includes updates to many third-party dependencies,
ensuring compatibility with Elasticsearch 2+, Mongo 3+, and Neo4j 3+.

An example module demonstrating use of Apache Flink as a runtime engine has been included
as well.

We would like to thank all contributors who made the release possible, and encourage anyone

Apache Streams (incubating) Community  


Apache Streams is an effort undergoing incubation at the Apache  
Software Foundation (ASF), sponsored by the Apache Incubator PMC.  

Incubation is required of all newly accepted projects until a further  
review indicates that the infrastructure, communications, and decision  
making process have stabilized in a manner consistent with other  
successful ASF projects.  

While incubation status is not necessarily a reflection of the  
completeness or stability of the code, it does indicate that the  
project has yet to be fully endorsed by the ASF.
