Subject [ANN] Java Web Parts 1.0 (GA) is now available
Date Mon, 01 Jan 2007 18:41:50 GMT
The Java Web Parts (JWP) team is proud to announce that new year's day 
sees our first "GA" release, 1.0, unleashed upon the world!

For those of you new to JWP, it is a project that provides small, 
reusable and largely independant Java components of interest to all web 
application developers. You can think of this project as being somewhat 
similar to the Jakarta Commons projects conceptually.

JWP is comprised of a number of packages, each supplied in its own 
individual JAR, with little (ideally no) cross-dependency. The packages 
currently include:

* AjaxParts - A collection of components for doing AJAX, including the 
very popular AjaxParts Taglib (APT Taglib)

* Context - A collection of components for dealing with a servlet 
context including functionality to calculate the size of the context object

* Filter - A collection of useful servlet filters including a Javascript 
compressor, a request recorder, a cross-site scripting filter, a 
compression filter and an IP access control filter

* Listener - Context and Session listeners for various occassions 
including functionality to limit the number of concurrent sessions

* Misc - Things that didn't fit anywhere else, including a very powerful 
CoR implementation and a utility to play back recorded sessions created 
with the session recorder filter (useful for automated load testing)

* Taglib - Various tag libraries including some UI widgets, string 
utilities and a taglib to insert various useful Javascript functions

* Servlet - A collection of servlets to fulfill common needs including 
one that can render a graphical representation of a string of text using 
various font styles

* Request - Classes and functions for dealing with an HTTP request 
including functions to get various information about a request easily

* Response - Classes and functions for dealing with an HTTP response 
including functionality to encode HTML entities in the response

* Session - Classes and functions... eh, you see the pattern! (includes 
the ability to calculate the size of session, etc)

Please visit for further info, docs, 
downloads, all that jazz.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled mailing list posts and 
wish every a happy new year!
