XmlBeans Project Pages
See other XMLBeans Wiki page at ["XMLBeansProjectPages"]
This is a hub for XmlBeans project topics on the Apache wiki. XmlBeans is a project in incubation at http://xml.apache.org/xmlbeans/. Read XmlBeansProposal for a formal description of the project proposal and XmlBeansExplanation for an explanation of the details. XmlBeansRoadMap is a general road map for the project's future direction over the next year.
The code has been checked in under the xml-xmlbeans module. We're still trying to get things like the website and bugzilla set up.
There are going to be two development paths for the code:
- Since the contributed code is stable and works quite well, we will be maintaining it in apache as "v1.x", fixing bugs and adding minor bits of functionality.
Since there are some larger features that we are all interested in adding to XmlBeans, we will be launching into work on a "2.x", targeted for release in less than 12 months, that will be the place where rearchitecture and major feature work is done. There will be some number of months where 2.x will not be particularly usable, so people interested in using XmlBeans should use 1.x.
You will see both v1/ and v2/ directories in the xml-xmlbeans module; v2/ will start out empty.
The Bugzilla area for XMLBeans still needs to be set up; either I or somebody else will need administrator access. (Try submitting a bug to XMLBeans; you'll see it needs a little setup.)
At XmlBeansFeaturePlan we are collecting together and developing a list of 2.x features, large and small, for the next version of XmlBeans. Any nontrivial features that are being seriously considered should be documented there.
