Subject [ANNOUNCE] Apache Tuscany SCA 2.0 M1 Released
Date Fri, 20 Feb 2009 08:07:39 GMT
The Apache Tuscany team are pleased to announce the 2.0 M1 release of
the Java SCA project.

Apache Tuscany provides a runtime based on the Service Component
Architecture (SCA) which is a set of specifications aimed at
simplifying SOA Application Development. The SCA specifications are
being standardized at OASIS as part of the Open Composite Services
Architecture (Open CSA) - http://www.oasis-opencsa.org/.

The Apache Tuscany SCA 2.0-M1 release is the first milestone on the
road to a full Apache Tuscany SCA 2.0 release. The goal of Apache
Tuscany SCA 2.0 is to provide an OSGi based SCA runtime that is
compliant with the OASIS SCA specifications.

With this first milestone release, a solid OSGi foundation is in place
to support the development, build, testing and deployment of Tuscany
modules and extensions following OSGi best practices. The first steps
have also been taken to incorporate the latest OASIS SCA draft

In subsequent milestone releases the compliance gap with the OASIS
specifications will continue to be narrowed and, now that the OSGi
infrastructure in place, OSGi/SCA integration at the application level
will be explored further.

Feature Overview

The Apache Tuscany SCA 2.0-M1 release includes implementations of the
main SCA specifications and some recent updates from Open CSA drafts including:

    * SCA Assembly Model V1.0
    * SCA Policy Framework V1.0
    * SCA Java Common Annotations and APIs V1.0
    * SCA Java Component Implementation V1.0
    * SCA Web Services Binding V1.0

It also includes implementations of features not yet defined
by SCA specifications, including:

    * SCA bindings for RMI.
    * Databindings for JAXB, Axis2's AXIOM, DOM, SAX and StAX

In milestone one Tuscany SCA supports the following host-deployment options: -

    * running standalone
    * running in a OSGi enabled runtime Environment (Equinox)
    * running with distributed nodes across multiple JVMs but
      without domain configuration support
