<p>Jackrabbit has graduated incubation. For more information,
please see the
<a href="http://jackrabbit.apache.org/">Apache Jackrabbit</a> project.</p>
<p><span class="graduated">The Jackrabbit project graduated on 2006-03-15</span></p>
</div>
<h2 id='Description'><img src="../images/redarrow.gif" />Description</h2>
<div class="section-content">
<p>The Jackrabbit podling has been formed to develop an open
source implementation of the Content Repository for Java
Technology API (JCR), as specified within the Java Community
Process as
<a href="http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=170">JSR 170</a> and
<a href="http://www.jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=283">JSR 283</a>.
<a href="http://www.day.com/">Day Software</a>, the JCR
specification lead, has licensed an initial implementation of
the JCR reference implementation for use as seed code for
this project. JCR specifies an API for application developers
(and application frameworks) to use for interaction with
modern content repositories -- content management systems
that provide content services such as versioning,
transactions, indexing, workflow, etc.</p>
<p>Jackrabbit's implementation began as a proposal within the
<a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/slide/index.html">Jakarta
Slide</a> project, but has since attracted interest from
multiple projects with the
<a href="http://www.apache.org/">Apache Software Foundation</a>,
including Slide, Cocoon, Lenya, Graffito, XML
Indexing, and Derby. We are also looking at integration with
projects such as Maven and Beehive.</p>
<p>The purpose of this incubation period is to attract
additional contributors from other Apache projects and from
the various JSR 170 and 283 expert group companies, learn the
Apache way of doing things, and allow the developers to focus
on this interface/implementation rather than all of the
existing projects that might want to use it. We hope to
improve collaboration on the code base by moving all of the
active developers and authors to Apache, bring in as many of
the Apache veterans as wish to get involved, and open it up
to all of the 22 expert group companies. Development of the
JCR RI and TCK will occur in this project -- Day Software
plans to continue participation in Jackrabbit and use the
code in the official RI and TCK releases, allowing developers
to beta test against the open source versions as well as the
official versions.</p>

<h3 id='Status20060313'>2006/03/13</h3>
<div class="section-content">
<p>Jackrabbit accomplished its first official incubating
release with version 0.9 of the Apache Jackrabbit reference
implementation and JCR-RMI tools. Day Software has
confirmed that the version 0.9 jars have passed the JCR 1.0
TCK with the current exclude list.</p>
<p>We are now getting reorganized for graduation from the
Incubator to our own top-level project at the Apache
Software Foundation. The Jackrabbit committers voted on
March 11, 2006, to request graduation. In addition, we made
a call to refresh the list of active committers for an
accurate presentation to the board; Stefano Mazzocchi,
Gianugo Rabellino, Paul Russell, Tim Reilly, and Andrew
Savory have requested emeritus status, meaning that they
won't be listed on the initial project management committee
but are welcome to come back if they choose to rejoin the
project at a later time.</p>
</div>
<h3 id='Status20060118'>2006/01/18</h3>
<div class="section-content">
<p>Jackrabbit added four new committers to the project this
quarter:</p>
<ul>
<li>Serge Huber</li>
<li>Felix Meschberger</li>
<li>Brian Moseley</li>
<li>Angela Schreiber</li>
</ul>
<p>in recognition of their outstanding and sustained
contributions to the project. Jukka Zitting has volunteered
to be the RM for our first set of incubating releases. We
plan to seek graduation from incubator as soon as we have a
track record for a successful release vote.</p>
</div>
<h3 id='Status20051026'>2005/10/26</h3>
<div class="section-content">
<p>The Apache Jackrabbit podling is slowly recovering from
the impact of finalizing JSR 170, initializing JSR 283 (the
next JCR specification revision EG), and the summer holiday
schedule. We are in the process of reconfiguring our source
directories for an eventual 1.0 release and Maven 2
support. No new committers were added this quarter, though
we expect more to be added soon.</p>
</div>
<h3 id='Status20050715'>2005/07/15</h3>
<div class="section-content">
<p>Jackrabbit has attracted public interest from many
different projects, both open source and commercial in
nature, and has over 250 people reading the developer list.
During the past quarter we added one new committer, Edgar
Poce, and cleared the minimum threshold of three
independent committers.</p>
<p>The big news is that JCR, the Content Repository for
Java Technology 1.0 API, has been completed by the JSR 170
expert group and received final approval from the J2SE/EE
executive committee at the end of May. We are currently
working on restructuring the Jackrabbit project directories
in preparation of an eagerly anticipated first release
candidate and passing the official TCK, at which point we
are hoping to graduate from Incubator to TLP status for the
1.0 release.</p>
</div>
<h3 id='Status20050425'>2005/04/25</h3>
<div class="section-content">
<p>Jackrabbit is doing well as a project and is attracting
interest both within other Apache projects (Lenya and
Graffito in particular) as well as from new folks in the
Java community. We added two new committers, Jukka Zitting
and Dominique Pfister, and have received sustained
contributions from Serge Huber, Edgar Poce, Angela
Schreiber, Felix Meschberger, and others.</p>
<p>Jackrabbit's only problem right now is continued
reliance on JCP EG private discussions due to the
unfinished nature of the JSR 170 Content Repository for
Java Technology API. JSR 170 is expected to be submitted
for final draft status in early May, after which all of the
discussion can be moved to Apache lists. We anticipate
graduating from Incubator sometime soon after that.</p>
</div>
<h3 id='Status20041117'>2004/11/17</h3>
<div class="section-content">
<p>The Jackrabbit project has completed all of the
Incubator checklist items in terms of moving to Apache and
getting the IP transfer done. With the help of Maven, we
have a full website set up at</p>
<p>
<a href="http://incubator.apache.org/jackrabbit/">
http://incubator.apache.org/jackrabbit/</a>
</p>
<p>with a few link bugs due to the svn/viewcvs integration.
Our big task from now to graduation is to get the community
more involved in development, planning features,
integrating with some of the DB projects, and scoping out
interesting applications to build on top of the
interface.</p>
