Empire-db is a relational data access layer offering special benefits over other solutions through string-free dynamic query generation, metadata access and improved compile-time safety.

Empire-db has been accepted to the incubator in July 2008.

==== Recent activity: ====

In October only a few minor bug fixes and improvements for both the core database component and the Struts2 extensions library have been provided.

Still on our list is the maven support for the upcoming 2.0.5 release.
Another idea is to provide an example for how to integrate Web-Services in a Web-Application using Empire-db’s metadata capabilities.

There are also plans for providing integration with Apache Wicket, which could be a new subproject just like the Empire-db Struts2 extensions. This however is a task that would take a few months to develop.

==== Community aspects: ====

In order to increase our community and make people more aware of the capabilities and benefits of Empire-db we have submitted a proposal for a presentation at the Apache Con Europe 2009 in Amsterdam. We are waiting to hear from the conference committee any time soon.

November 2008 Board reports (see ReportingSchedule).

These reports are due here by 12 November 2008 so that the Incubator PMC can relay them to the board.

Your project might need to report even if it is not listed below, please check your own reporting schedule or exceptions.

Please remember to include:

  • The "incubating since" info
  • The project's top 2 or 3 things to resolve prior to graduation
  • A short description of what your project's software does

Etch

Etch was accepted into Incubator on the 2 September 2008.

Etch is a cross-platform, language- and transport-independent framework for building and consuming network services. The Etch toolset includes a network service description language, a compiler, and binding libraries for a variety of programming languages.

Progress has been slow this last month, mainly due to lag in getting the source code into Subversion. We have at least now gotten the stuff into /repos/test and everything looks good and are now waiting for Joe to put it into /repos/asf/incubator/etch.

The following tasks are in progress:

  • Publishing source tree in SVN; INFRA has the subversion repo-dumpfile and we have tested access.
  • Confluence Wiki for Etch, and once it is setup we will begin migration of the public pages at http://developer.cisco.com/web/cuae/etch to Apache.

Our goal is to get back to coding once we have the infrastructure established.

OpenWebBeans

Open Web Beans will be an ASL-licensed implementation of the Web Beans Specification which is defined as JSR-299.

OpenWebBeans is entered incubator in October 26, 2008. Since then the following items has been done;

  • Matthias Wessendorf kindly accepts to be a new mentor of the project besides Kevan Miller.
  • The SVN, mailing lists and JIRA needs to be set up. Infra. group is informed about this.
  • The initial committers submitted their ICLA.
  • OpenWebBeans status page is generated, but it needs some more work.

After the SVN is setup , we will be working for an import of a current codebase into the Apache repository.
