OpenWebBeans Has Graduated!

Hey there,

Today Apache Incubator OpenWebBeans has become Apache TLP (Top Level Project of Apache Foundation). Thanks to all of our community and mentors for their great support! In Apache Terms, OpenWebBeans has graduated from incubation successfully!

It takes more than one year living in Incubator with delivering 3 releases. Personally, I learned lots of new things about how to develop/implement and manage open source project while working on the OWB under the incubation. As the main motivation for Apache Incubation is to learn Apache Way,  I believe that I have very experienced with it.

After now, we will be working on producing a cool "Dependency Injection" framework that will be used in both Java EE and Java SE environments. Besides it implements JSR-299 and JSR-330 specifications, we will create a bunch of useful extensions that are related with other Apache Projects. For example, altough JSR-299 does not define Java Messaging Service artifacts injections, OWB provides injection of JMS artifacts like ConnectionFactory, Queue, Topic, Session etc.

Have a nice day
