WebBeans Public Draft


I just read from the jboss.org site that WebBean public draft may be published in this week or next early. I think that some of the concepts that are documented in the EDR-1 has changed. Maybe we could change some of the impl. to reflect those changes. Anyway, may sure, overall concepts are the same.

You could read more about related posting at http://in.relation.to/Bloggers/WebBeansTeaser.

About OpenWebBeans, it is under the [VOTE] process that happens at incubator general mailing list by the Incubator PMC . If it passes, it will be project under the Apache Incubator.

Web Beans Reference Implementation Proposal

Good morning from here :)

As a fan and an advocacy of the Open Source Software, I have created the new Incubator Proposal about the web beans reference implementation in the http://wiki.apache.org/incubator/OpenWebBeansProposal.

This proposal is not accepted yet to go into the incubator projects, but the discussions about the thread is doing on the incubator general mailing list, general@incubator.apache.org. You could comment on this mailing list about the proposal.

Currenly, I have been implementing the RI at the sourceforge. You can browse the SVN respository at http://bigfaces.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/bigfaces/webbeansimpl/.

I am getting good feedbacks from the Java EE community about the proposal. You can join the discussions on the above mailing list. You are all welcome to help this open source clean reference implementation.
