Description - Buildr is a build system for Java applications written in Ruby.

Date of Entry - Nov. 2007

Buildr is a brand new project (see the proposal at [1]), it's just been accepted in the Incubator this month. Most of the project infrastructure has been setup: status page, svn, jira, mailing lists. The code grant has been submitted (and ack'ed), the buildr community has been notified of the migration and the code import will probably be done during ApacheCon in Atlanta.

Sling is a framework to develop content centric web applications based on the idea of modularizing the rendering of HTTP resources.

Sling entered incubation on September 5th, 2007.


  • We had a very active month with adding microsling and based on this project developping and voting the new Sling API replacing the form Component API. Currently we are migrating the project sources to the new API.
  • Sling present at ApacheCon US 07 with a FeatherTalk and a BOF


  • microsling added to Sling as simple entry level framework exhibiting the mechanisms of Sling. microsling was also used as a proof of concept for the new Sling API and greatly influenced its evolution.
  • Two contributions of the community added to microsling and Sling: Freemarker support by Padraic Hannon and Ruby integration by Shawn Anderson.

Issues before graduation

  • Make an incubating Sling release
  • Grow a more diverse community (so far only commits from Day employees)

Licensing and other issues

  • none

Tuscany simplifies the development, deployment and management of distributed applications built as compositions of service components. These components may be implemented with a range of technologies and connected using a variety of communication protocols. Tuscany implements relevant open standards including, but not limited to, the SCA and SDO standards defined by the OASIS OpenCSA member section.

Incubating since: 2005-11-30

Top issues?

  • Diversity

Community aspects:

  • A proposal was put forward to graduate as a TLP but the IPMC raised concerns about the level of diversity so the proposal was withdrawn while these are addressed
    • o It should be noted that Tuscany does currently more than meet the Incubator minimum diversity requirements for graduation
  • Dims stepped down as a mentor, Paul Fremantle and Matthieu Riou took his place
  • Voted Brady Johnson, Simon Nash, Amita Vadhavkar, Mark Combellack as new committers
  • Good community involvement - users are answering mailing list questions, providing patches, and being voted in as committers
    • o Over seven hundred posts on the tuscany-user list in the last three months, up over 300% since a year ago

Releases since last report:

  • Significant milestones were achieved with the 1.0 releases of Java SCA and SDO which implement the v1.0 of the SCA specifications and v2.1 of the SDO specification respectively
  • An 0.99 release of Java SCA was also done prior to the 1.0 release
  • Java DAS beta1 and beta2 released

Ongoing work:

  • A Java SCA 1.0.1 maintenance release is currently being voted on
  • A Native SCA, SDO and DAS release is in progress
  • The Java SCA 1.1 release contents are being discussed
  • Links with other Apache projects continue to be forged and lots of exciting new features are being worked on!
