September 2009 Board reports (see ReportingSchedule).

These reports are due here by Wednesday, 9 September 2009 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:


Bluesky

BlueSky has been incubating since 01-12-2008. It is an e-learning solution designed to help solve the disparity in availability of qualified education between well-developed cities and poorer regions of China.

Things are getting better in the last month. First, some critical legal issues which bothers us long time like FFmpeg are solved. Also, we deleted 1494dv support for legal problem, but we believe that would not affect the functionalities. Currently, the only legal issue is ARTS/OSS, and we've already replaced ARTS it with SDL, however, it needs sometime to make the whole system run successfully. And we would use ALSA compiled in LGPL way to replace OSS. There are some other good news too. More developers are joining the mailing list and a core team, i believe, is gradually establishing in XJTU. We now aims to the first release and next step we will try to attract more developers on bulletin board system at XJTU to contribute to the future version of RealClass. Plus, MERSMP team, which is incharge of the developing of MERSMP system, now join the dev-mailing list. Together with MERSMP team, we believe that we could make much more achievement in the future. And we still need the committer account so that we commit recent changes of website态code etc. Hope the accounts could be proved soon.

Required before graduation:

Kato

Kato was accepted into the Incubator on 6 November 2008.

Kato is a project to develop the Specification, Reference Implementation, and TCK for JSR 326: the JVM Post-mortem Diagnostics API

Recent Activity:

The following is planned for next reporting period:

Before this project can be graduated we need to produce a usable implementation of the API and more useful tools to encourage adoption and participation of a much needed community.

Log4php

Log4PHP is a logging framework similar to Log4J, but in PHP. The project entered incubation in 2004, retired and restarted again on 2007-07-04. Since the last report there has been much activity. Slightly more activity from community could be reckognized. Several patches from contributors came in.

River

River is aimed at the development and advancement of the Jini technology core infrastructure. Jini technology is a service oriented architecture that defines a programming model which both exploits and extends Java technology to enable the construction of secure, distributed systems which are adaptive to change. River has been incubating since December 2006.

Recent efforts included replacing make build scripts with ant and integrating the qa test suite with the main build. The jtreg test suite has some remaining issues to solve, namely setup and configure a Kerberos KDC test server, a zone has been set up for this purpose at river.zones.apache.org , in a addition a proxy server is also required to replace the functionality of the sun jiniproxy server. Most jtreg tests are passing, it would be desirable to have all pass prior to releasing AR2.

Minor modifications need to be made to the ant build scripts to build the ClassDep.jar manifest correctly to include required libraries following recent ClassDep reimplementation changes to eliminate dependency upon internal implementation of Sun's JDK. Once resolved we are clear to release AR2.

There has been some some recent interest in implementing compression and caching of bytecode. Other interests include class versioning and codebase services.

After AR2, focus will be on support for Java 5 features, such as annotations and reducing the barriers to entry for new contributor developers.

Wink

Signed off by: Davanum Srinivas, Kevan Miller

Apache Wink is a project that enables development and consumption of REST style web services. The core server runtime is based on the JAX-RS (JSR 311) standard. The project also introduces a client runtime which can leverage certain components of the server-side runtime. Apache Wink will deliver component technology that can be easily integrated into a variety of environments.
