Status report for the Web Services Project
Welcome to the new PMC members!
Apollo was officially renamed to: Apache WSRF Hermes was officially renamed to: Apache Pubscribe
WSRF, Pubscribe and Muse have been promoted out of incubation!
Muse participated in a successful public interop event with IBM at the ICAC/IEEE Conference in Seattle.
WSRF, Pubscribe and Muse all took new committers.
WSRF, Pubscribe and Muse will be the subject of a "Birds of a Feather" session at JavaOne (June 29th) called: "Web Services on Steroids: Taking Web Services to the Next Level Using Apache's Implementations of WSRF, WSN, and WSDM"
Code Releases [since the last report]
Apache Axis 1.2.1 (a bug-fix/incremental release) was released on 15th June, 2005.
Apache Sandesha beta version was released on 12th June, 2005. The intention of the team is to relase 1.0 version soon. http://ws.apache.org/ws-fx/sandesha/releases.html
Apache EWS 1.0 was released on 30th May, 2005. Not downloadable for now (only svn tag)
Apache Axis CPP released 1.5 in Early April. Greatly improved stability has led to less mailing list issues.
Apache Axis2 M2 was released on 7th of June 2005, with many of the changes proposed in the Colombo face to face.
Apache jUDDI 0.9rc4 was released on 14th of June, 2005. jUDDI completely supports the UDDI version 2.0 specifcation. A 0.9 final release is planned for the 15th of July, 2005 which will include fixes for any issues that surface over the next couple of weeks as well as an updated users guide.
Apollo (now WSRF), Hermes (now Pubscribe) and Muse released incubator beta-1 releases prior to exit from incubation.
The Woden incubator commenced in April to develop a common WSDL processor for WSDL 2.0 and 1.1. Prototype code is in SVN, the web site is up and mailing list discussion has started on requirements, scope and priorities (for Axis, Eclipse and W3C).
Problems with committers, members, projects etc?
There has been a good discussion going on recently about how to best factor things like WSDL processing code across the WS projects. This kind of design for sharing/reuse should be encouraged.
