Apache Geronimo To Miss August 6 Launch Date Target
Apache Geronimo To Miss August 6 Launch Date Target

  • Invitation: Join in Apache J2EE Efforts

    Geir Magnusson Jr, chair of the Apache Software Foundation's Geronimo project, has said that it won't manage to release the code for what, when complete and certified, will be be the world's third open-source Java application server in time for its its target release date - until now - of August 6.

    Instead, Geronimo will first take its place alongside JOnAS and JBoss later this year, once the code has been completed and after it has undergone the meticulous process of J2EE certification.

    Developers and enterprises looking forward to the release of the Geronimo application server for free under Apache's open-source license will therefore have to wait a few weeks, says Magnusson.

    Why do we need another open source J2EE platform? Why not extend/improve JBOSS rather than reinvent the wheel?

    http://wiki.apache.org/geronimo

    The Apache Software Foundation has initiated a project to develop an open source, Apache-licensed, implementation of the J2EE specification. In addition, the project is committed to certifying the implementation as J2EE compliant. This is an ambitious goal and will present a formidable challenge for the people involved, given the wide range of technologies covered by the specification. Apache Geronimo builds upon the many Java projects at the Apache Software Foundation. In addition, the project is bringing together members of the Castor, JBoss, MX4J and OpenEJB communities. We would like to extend an open invitation to everyone involved in the J2EE space, both commercial entities and talented individuals, to join the community and build a world-class J2EE implementation. The Apache Software Foundation is in a unique position to build a J2EE compliant platform. Our non-profit, charity status, and our relationship with Sun Microsystems, provides the foundation with access to the J2EE TCKs, making it possible to achieve certification. In addition, our flexible and unrestrictive licensing makes it possible for a wide variety of participants to assist in the development of Apache Geronimo, and to build their own solutions upon the platform. Apache Geronimo has been launched within the Apache Incubator.

    The beauty of the open-source nature of this project is that anyone can pull the source code out of CVS and watch the progress of the project. It's not like we're waiting for a product release by some company featuring hosted cocktails for the press. A release is more like, this is the tag, here's a tarball that happens to match the tag.

    Great Article, except it didn't say much. Good Try, Maybe Nextime ;-)
