Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Tuscany M1 released!
Date Wed, 14 Jun 2006 18:24:02 GMT
The Apache Tuscany community is pleased to announce its first milestone
release, Apache Tuscany/Java M1.


You can download binary and source distributions from:
http://incubator.apache.org/tuscany/download.html

For further information, visit our web site at:
http://incubator.apache.org/tuscany


Introduction
------------
Tuscany/Java provides a Java implementation of the Service Component
Architecture (SCA) and Service Data Objects (SDO) specifications, and a 
Data
Access Service (DAS) supporting SDO.

For pointers to the specification documents, visit our documentation 
page at:
http://incubator.apache.org/tuscany/documentation.html


Incubation
----------
Tuscany is an effort undergoing incubation at the Apache Software 
Foundation
(ASF), sponsored by the Web Services 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.


SCA Implementation - Key Features
---------------------------------
- General framework for wiring SCA components together and running them
- Module assembly using SCDL (SCA 0.9 spec level)
- Support for synchronous and asynchronous (one-way non-blocking) 
invocations
- SCA scope management
- Extensibility APIs, new bindings and component types can be easily 
plugged in
- Bootstrapping APIs
- Plugins/extensions:
 - Support for POJO components and SCA Java 5 annotations
 - Support for Javascript components
 - Axis2 Web Service binding
 - Celtix binding
 - JSON-RPC binding
 - SDO data binding
- Hosting in J2SE and Tomcat (SCA modules deployed as Web applications)
- WSDL2Java tool and experimental Java2WSDL tool
- Example programs showing components, wiring, and integration of bindings
- Implementation of the Bigbank sample application published with the 
SCA spec

SDO Implementation - Key Features
---------------------------------
- Dynamic data object support (SDO 2.0.1 spec level)
- Basic static code generation (generator patterns still subject to change)
- Helper classes partially/fully implemented (XMLHelper, DataFactory, etc.)
- ChangeSummary support in DataGraph (no ChangeSummary attributes)
- Some simple example programs

DAS Implementation - Key Features
---------------------------------
- RDB CRUD operations in terms of SDO DataObjects
- Optimistic concurrency control
- Generated database IDs
- Stored procedures
- Paging API
- 1..1 and 1..n relationships
- Partial row updates
