(Content Management Interoperability Services) specification in Java,
Python, PHP, and .NET (and possibly other languages).
The project has graduated in February 2011.

== Project status ==

The team has completed most of the graduation tasks within the last
weeks. The last open topic is a TLP release of the OpenCMIS sub-project.
A new sub-project, DotCMIS, has been added in January. It provides a
CMIS client library for .NET.
On 23 February 2011, the Apache Press Team announced the graduation of
Apache Chemistry. (Thanks to the team and Sally in particular!) It
generated a nice press coverage.

== Community ==

There have been no changes within the last four weeks. The traffic on
the dev list is steady.

== Infrastructure ==

The mailing lists, SVN and the project website have been moved from the
incubator to the TLP infrastructure. We have used this opportunity to
move from Confluence to Apache CMS and to check the branding requirements.

== Releases ==

cmislib 0.4.1 (Python) and DotCMIS 0.1 (.NET) have been released since
the graduation. The team is currently preparing an OpenCMIS 0.3 (Java)
release. The PHP sub-project still lacks a first release and is moving
slowly.

21 Apr 2010

Apache Chemistry is an effort to provide a Java (and possibly others, like
JavaScript) implementation of the upcoming CMIS (Content Management
Interoperability Services) specification. Chemistry entered incubation on
April 30th, 2009.

A list of the three most important issues to address in the move towards
graduation:
1. First formal incubator release. Although this is planned, there are
several tasks to complete (e.g. documentation) and a learning curve to
climb.

Any issues that the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be aware
of:

There are currently no issues requiring board or Incubator PMC attention.

How has the community developed since the last report
1. The OpenCMIS project (originally proposed to the Incubator which also
targets a Java implementation of CMIS) has joined Apache Chemistry, with the
following new committers - David Ward, Florian Muller, Jens Hubel, Martin
Hermes, Paul Goetz and Stephan Klevenz
2. Jeff Potts has contributed his Python CMIS client library and became a
committer.
3. Nick Burch has joined as a new mentor.
4. Mailing list traffic has increased 2.5 times since last quarter.

How has the project developed since the last report
1. Development continues at a steady pace, and Chemistry now targets CMIS
1.0 CD07, the version of the specification submitted to OASIS.
2. Command-line Shell has been contributed (from Nuxeo).
3. Hudson builds have been setup and stabilized.
4. An agreement has been been met on how to merge the Chemistry and
OpenCMIS codebases. The merge will take place in a branch, until stabilized
(which should take no longer than 2 weeks).
5. A first formal incubator release of the merged Chemistry/OpenCMIS
codebases is planned shortly after the merge is complete.



= Empire-db =

Empire-db is a relational data persistence component that aims to overcome
the difficulties, pitfalls and restrictions inherent in traditional Object
Relational Management (ORM) approaches. Empire-db is on the Apache Incubator
since July 2008.

Issues to address in the move towards graduation:

Empire-db is mature and seems to be used in many productive environments.
The release process has been fully implemented according to Apache
conventions. User feedback is positive apart from some complaints about the
documentation.

Yet our community is still small and we need to do more advertising in order
to attract more users. In order to attract more committers we also need to
provide a roadmap that shows were Empire-db will be going in the future and
how people can participate.

Community development since the last report:

During the last three months several new users have had questions or
suggestions for improvement. The requests have shown that Empire-db is being
used in various different environments (OSGi, Spring) and even together with
other programming languages than Java (Scala).

One user donated a new example project that demonstrates the use of
Empire-db together with Spring that we will publish with our new release.

Project development since the last report:

We have just finished working on Release 2.0.6 and are currently seeking
approval from the Incubator PMC to publish the release. The release contains
various new features, improvements and bugfixes. The most important new
feature is a reverse engineering component that generates data model mapping
files from existing databases either from command line or by a Maven plugin.

Empire-db is a relational data persistence component that aims to overcome
the difficulties, pitfalls and restrictions inherent in traditional Object
Relational Management (ORM) approaches.  Empire-db is on the Apache
Incubator since July 2008.

After we had completed development activities on release 2.0.5 in July we
were hoping to get the release accepted by our mentors the Incubator PMC
within a couple of weeks. Unfortunately we first faced the problem that due
to vacation time we were not able to get a mentors vote on our PMC. With
recommendation of one of your mentors we then decided to move on to the
IPMC. Again we did not get many responses at first, but finally we found
some reviewers who discovered some incomplete or inconsistent documentation
issues and raised some concerns about the content of the distribution files
and maven artifacts. After we had corrected these issues and after
presenting a new release candidate to the IPMC new issues came up that had
not been raised before and in the end it took us 6 lengthy iterations before
we finally got our release accepted by the incubator PMC. After the approval
of Empire-db 2.0.5 the new release was published in the Maven repository and
on our website. Now that the new project structure has been established and
approved we hope that the release process of our next release will run a lot
smoother and quicker.

Meanwhile new plans have been made for our next release where intend to
provide a code generator that allows generation of the data model class
files from an existing database. For this a new subproject and the
corresponding JIRA tasks have already been set up. As such a suggestion has
been raised by one of our users, We are hoping to get new users involved in
our development team.

The project's top 3 things to resolve prior to graduation:

* Grow a larger community
* Roll out a second maven-based release

DID NOT REPORT

17 Jun 2009

Apache Chemistry is an effort to provide a Java (and possibly others, like
JavaScript) implementation of the upcoming CMIS specification. Chemistry
entered incubation on April 30th, 2009.

The incubation process has started well. All the project infrastructure is
in place and all initial committers have their Apache accounts. We even
increased the headcount of the initial team as David Caruana joined the
project as a new committer.

Development of the Chemistry codebase has moved to Apache svn and there's
been a number or related discussions on the mailing list. Overall the
project is still in a startup phase as people are getting oriented with the
scope and structure of the project. A number of license headers were updated
to match Apache policies.

Issues before graduation:

 * Stabilize the general interest into a sustainable development community
 * Make sure that all licensing details conform with Apache policies
 * Create an Apache release of the Chemistry codebase

20 May 2009

Apache Chemistry is an effort to provide a Java (and possibly others, like
!JavaScript) implementation of the upcoming CMIS specification. Chemistry
entered incubation on April 30th, 2009.

The Chemistry project has just entered incubation and we've been busy
getting started with everything. Most of the project infrastructure is
already in place, all the CLAs have been received, and the initial codebases
are now in Apache svn.

Many Chemistry developers had a chance to meet in person in the CMIS
!PlugFest at the end of April, and the resulting energy has been visible
also on the new Chemistry mailing lists. Among the results are updates to
the core Chemistry codebase, a new JavaScript-based CMIS client codebase,
and a proposal to contribute a Flex/Air-based CMIS explorer.

Issues before graduation:

 * Stabilize the general interest and energy into a sustainable development
community
 * Make sure that license headers and other details conform with Apache
policies
 * Create an Apache release of the Chemistry codebase
