Geronimo

19 Apr 2017 [Alan Cabrera / Ted]

Special thanks to Romain Manni-Bucau for crafting this report.

## Description:
 - Apache Geronimo is a JEE6 certified open source server runtime that
   integrates the best open source projects to create Java/OSGi server
   runtimes that meet the needs of enterprise developers and system
   administrators.


## Issues:
 - We are concerned with the lack of community activity on the server
   portion of the project. Other parts of the Geronimo project otoh do
   fine.
 - We have discussed retiring the Geronimo Server and amend the project
   agenda to focus on proving a kind of 'JavaEE Umbrella at Apache'
   project (to host projects not justifying enough activity by themself
   but not specific enough to be a subproject). It appears to have
   worked well for years for Geronimo components and specs.

 We basically have two options:
   * Retire the Geronimo Server and amend the project agenda
     to focus on proving a kind of 'JavaEE Umbrella at Apache' project
     with the still active parts.
   * Retire the whole Geronimo project and move active parts to various
     other places.  There are a few open questions: what happens with
     parts which are used in multipledifferent places? How to do this
     while still keeping the o.a.geronimo packageand groupId?
 - The inability to obtain a AL2.0 compatible JEE TCK pins Geronimo to JEE6
 - CI/TCK setup has fallen into disrepair

## Activity:
 - Last release of the Geronimo Server was 3.18 on Tue May 20 2014
 - quite a few releases for various specs, xbean, javamail, etc
   Hard to track though as they do not have separate jira version ranges
 - In progress votes geronimo-jsonp 1.1 spec API
 - In progress votes geronimo-jaxrs 2.0 spec API
 - Some PMC members mentioned that they want to retire

## Health report:
 - Traffic is relatively low, until the community began pivot discussions.
 - Geronimo Server: dead
 - specs: well alive and doing fine
 - javamail: gets bugfixes
 - xBean: alive and maintained
 - transaction: alive and maintained

## PMC changes:

 - Currently 42 PMC members.
 - No new PMC members added in the last 3 months
 - Last PMC addition was Romain Manni-Bucau on Thu Aug 07 2014

## Committer base changes:

 - Currently 70 committers.
 - Reinhard Sandtner was added as a committer on Mon Feb 13 2017

## Releases:

 - Last release was 3.18 on Tue May 20 2014

## Mailing list activity:

 - Not much activity but probably due to the transition period and
   unclear state of the project.

 - CI/TCK setup has fallen into disrepair

## Activity:
 - Released geronimo-validation 1.0 spec API

 - A large number of patches from the IBM’s WAS Liberty application server
   product was incorporated into Geronimo's Yoko CORBA sub-project.
   Many thanks to David Jenks, Joe Chacko, and Neil Richards.
 - The community is actively discussing possible pivots for the project.

## Health report:
 - Traffic is relatively low, until the community began pivot discussions.
 - There seem to be a number of very realistic viable options for Geronimo
   that don't include a JEE7+ TCK.

- inventory any required interactions between individual specs
- inventory outstanding bugs in JEE6 specs and assess the amount of work
  required
- inventory what are the outstanding security issues and assess the amount of
  work required  (will likely need to remove distributions until fixes can be
        put into place)
- inventory CI setup and assess the amount of work required
- inventory TCK setup and assess the amount of work required

## Activity:
- Released geronimo-validation-1.1 v1.0

## Description:
Apache Geronimo is an open source server runtime that integrates the best open
source projects to create Java/OSGi server runtimes that meet the needs of
enterprise developers and system administrators.

## Issues:
- We are concerned with our current level of community activity. Some
  discussions were started about next-gen Geronimo effort. Work needs to be
  done to kickstart the conversation of where the community would like to take
  the project.

## Activity:
- A release of JavaMail
- A release of XBean
- Some developers have come forward to offer new features and fixes to Apache
  Yoko from the IBM WAS Liberty server. The smell of some fresh members is in
  the air!

## Health report:
- The project is a mature implementation of a mature technology. Given
  Geronimo's size and complexity coming up to speed and finding a compelling
  bit to work on is a daunting task, to say the least. A fresh re-write or
  re-org of components into something that is compelling given contemporary
  sensibilities will likely spur activity since it should open up some green
  field opportunities. The trick will be to balance the re-write/re-org with
  keeping important core capabilities, e.g. OSGi; we don't want to throw the
  baby out with the bathwater. This fall is a good time to start the
  discussion with hopes of beginning a fresh start in the new year.

- With that said, it should be pointed out that of the activity that occurs,
  it is indicative of an engaged community.

Significant progress has been made towards a 2.2 server
release. We've worked with the Jetty project to integrate Jetty
7, including jaspi support.

SPECS
Work has begun to implement some of the draft JavaEE 6 spec api
jars. This has been complicated by the fact that some Specs are
using outdated templates with restrictive licensing
terms. Hopefully, this will be fixed soon. There are other
issues, such as undocumented updates to jsr250 (annotations) for
among other things the servlet 3.0 spec.

SANDBOX
An implementation of the OSGi Blueprint specification has been
largely completed. With the intent of using the implementation
within a future version of the Geronimo server.

POLICY CHANGES
The community discussed using the Apache Nexus installation for
release and snapshot staging/deployment. The community decided to
hold off on switching to this new process until after the
Geronimo Server 2.1.4 release. As 2.1.4 was released, we have
begun using Apache Nexus.

Vulnerabilities. The Server 2.1.4 release was the first release
to follow this policy.

COMMUNITY
We requested the jsr-196 (jaspi) tck from sun on dec 2 2008 and
still haven't received it.

We discussed using the Nexus installation at Apache for release and
snapshot staging/deployment. The community decided to hold off on
switching to this new process until after the Geronimo Server
2.1.4 release.

SECURITY
Three security vulnerabilities were discovered in the Geronimo
admin console. There were fixed in the Geronimo Server 2.1.4
release:

* CVE-2008-5518
* CVE-2009-0038
* CVE-2009-0039

Special thanks are due to Digital Security Research Group, who
identified a number of these problems and were extremely helpful
with the resolution and testing of these issues.

NEW COMMITTERS
Ivan Xu

Justin asks if Geronimo has the policy of making security vulnerabilities public.

J. Aaron takes the action item to get clarity on security policy.

21 Jan 2009 [Kevan Miller / Bill]

The Geronimo project generated several releases over the last three
months. The community is actively working on new server releases of
Geronimo 2.2 and 2.1.4. One new PMC member was voted in by the PMC.

GENESIS
* Genesis 1.5 was released on October 27th.

SPECS
* specs-parent 1.6 was released on November 4th.
* SAAJ 1.3 Spec (v 1.0.1) was released on October 16th.
* Concurrent 1.0 Spec (v 1.0-EA) was released on December 12th.

CONFERENCES
Two Geronimo presentations were made at ApacheCon US 2008 by David Jencks:
* Geronimo Security, now and in the future
* Administering Apache Geronimo 2.x

COMMUNITY
Automated Java EE 5 TCK tests are running on phoebe and
selene: providing much faster test results that can be shared and
reproduced by the entire Geronmo TCK community. In addition some
manually driven TCK testing has been performed for non-Geronimo
projects.

The Geronimo project added a Privacy Policy to our project web site.

NEW PMC MEMBERS
* Jason Warner

SECURITY
The Geronimo project received a report of potential security
vulnerabilities from Digital Security Research Group. The community
is working to evaluate and, as necessary, fix these issues.
During the course of this work, the archival status of the security
mailing list for this project was reviewed and corrective action was
taken.

The board is pleased with the positive results from the TCK boxes.

The privacy policy is much appreciated.

15 Oct 2008 [Kevan Miller / J Aaron]

The Geronimo project generated multiple releases in the last quarter,
including releases of the Geronimo server, eclipse plugin, genesis,
and javamail.

New committers: Manu George, BJ Reed

Server
* Geronimo 2.1.3 Server was released on September 15th.
* Geronimo 2.1.2 Server was released on August 5th.
* Release discussions have begun for a 2.2 release.
* The community is monitoring the Java EE 6 specifications being
 generated by the JCP.

DevTools
* Geronimo Eclipse Plugins 2.1.3 was released on September 19th.
* Geronimo Eclipse Plugins 2.1.2 was released on August 22nd.

Genesis
* Genesis 1.3.1 was released on September 2nd.

Samples
* Geronimo 2.1.2 Samples were released on October 3 (compatible with
 Geronimo 2.1.2 and 2.1.3).

Javamail
* Javamail 1.4 (v1.6) was released on September 1st.

Specs
* Javamail 1.4 Spec (v1.5) was released on September 1st.

Community
* Created Security related mailing list and status pages:
  http://geronimo.apache.org/security-reports.html
* Two machines (phoebe and selene) were purchased by the ASF for use
 by the Geronimo project for Geronimo TCK testing. These machines
 were used to perform the TCK certification of the Geronimo 2.1.3
 release. They've also been used to uncover problems in our current
 2.2 codebase.
* Testing to date has been driven manually. However, community has
 settled on the framework to be used in driving automated
 testing. Expect to see this realized in the near future.
* Interest in monitoring the utilization of these two machines has
 been expressed. We plan on installing appropriate software to start this
 monitoring. The data will be made publically available. We will
 plan on including a summary of usage statistics in our quarterly reports.

News
* Evans Data Corporation released a report titled "Application
 Servers 2008 Rankings". In the report, Geronimo was the second highest
 ranking application server in the report, and was the highest ranking
 open source server.

16 Jul 2008

Geronimo Server 2.1.1 was released on April 28th. Release preparations
for a 2.1.2 release have begun. Discussions about a Geronimo 2.2
release are taking place on our dev list. The Yoko, Plugins, Devtools,
Specs, and XBean subprojects also had releases in the past 3 months.

The Geronimo community created a request for 2 server machines to
support the community's TCK testing efforts. The request was approved
in the previous board meeting. We were also requested to evaluate an
EC2-based solution. Calculations showed that EC2 would be nearly twice
as expensive as a dedicated hardware approach. Hardware acquisition of
the new server machines is preceding.

New PMC Members: Shiva Kumar, Lin Sun

TCK Access:
Geronimo TCK access was given to Vasily Zakharov who plans on working on
running Geronimo TCK tests using Harmony.

Export Status
------------------

Apache Geronimo is currently classified as ECCN 5D002. The PMC feels this is
correct and do not believe any other Geronimo product required ECCN
classification.

Other Issues
-----------------

The PMC had a discussion regarding PMC membership. It was noted that some
PMC members are not currently playing an active role in the community.
Instituting a policy for "emeritus" PMC status was discussed and a
poll/timeout policy for PMC participation was discussed. The concensus
was that as long as PMC activity is strong, the fact that some members
are not actively participating is not a community issue to be overly
concerned with.

Development of a sandbox project, AsyncHttpClient, has effectively been
moved to the Mina community. One committer, Rick McGuire, and one
community member, Sangjin Lee, have earned commit rights to the Mina project.

17 Oct 2007 [Matt Hogstrom / Will]

The Apache Geronimo Project has released Geronimo 2.0.1 in August. Our
initial attempt to release 2.0 was aborted due to a late discovery of a
security problem. Given that the release was in process we simply aborted
2.0 and corrected the problem and released as 2.0.1.

Releases
--------
   * Geronimo
     2.0.1 was released in August
     2.0.2 is in process for release in mid-October.

Apache Geronimo Board Report for July 2007

The Apache Geronimo Project has completed a certified Java EE 5.0
compliant stack in release 2.0-M6-rc1. This is not the official 2.0
release but demonstrates that we have an implementation that passes the
grueling demands of the Java EE 5.0 platform TCK. Sun has placed Apache
Geronimo on their certification page:
http://java.sun.com/javaee/overview/compatibility.jsp

Collaboration with several other projects at Apache is going on which
include ActiveMQ, Axis 2, CXF, MyFaces, OpenEJB, OpenJPA, Tomcat and
Yoko. Releases

 * Geronimo
   2.0-M5 and 2.0-M6 were released in April and June
   respectively.

 * Geronimo Javamail
   geronimo-javamail_1.4_spec-1.0, geronimo-javamail_1.4_mail-1.0,
   and geronimo-javamail_1.4_proverider-1.0 were released in June.

 * Geronimo Specs
   geronimo-javaee-deployment_1.1MR3_spec-1.0,
   geronimo-activation_1.1_spec-1.0, geronimo-ws-metadata_2.0_spec-1.1.1,
   geronimo-stax-api_1.0_spec-1.0

Devtools

 * Work continues on the JBoss to Geronimo (J2G) conversion tool currently
   in sandbox

Xbean

3.0 and 3.0.1 (a minor build configuration bugfix) were released in April
and June respectively JUGs and Conferences

 * Following sessions were presented at ApacheCon Europe 2007, May 1-4,
   Amsterdam:
     o Apache Geronimo 2.0 - Java EE 5.0 Status and Positioning
     o J2EE Application Development on Apache Geronimo Simplified using
       Eclipse

Policy Changes

   Access to the Geronimo TCK was given to the following
   non-Geronimo committers: Bruno Aranda, Dan Diephouse, Dan Kulp, Darren
   Middlehouse.

Subprojects

 * DayTrader
   Using the benchmark to flush out oddities and bugs. 2.0 will
   be updated and released soon after Geronimo 2.0 is made available.

 * DevTools
 * XBean
   We've fixed a number of bugs found during geronimo tck
   work and extended the xbean-spring functionality slightly.
 * Samples
   Contains a gallery of small samples that show how Geronimo's plan can be

Other Issues:

 * TCK Issues
   We have encountered significant delays in obtaining TCKs and
   related materials such as exclusion lists. Delays have been taking
   between 2 and 3 weeks from request to obtaining product.  These issues
   are on the Apache side and not Sun as Sun has been very responsive in our
   requests. We need to improve our access to the TCKs and exclusion lists.
   There are several people on Apache Geronimo that are interested in
   helping out in this area if needed.

   In addition, we need a better way to coordinate TCK activities by
   multiple projects it might be prudent to have a place for various
   projects to coordinate their TCK test activities. During the Geronimo
   testing it was discovered that CXF (that helped with the testing) was
   unaware of some challenges that had already been raised by Geronimo
   testers. We're not sure if there is sufficient overlap to justify more
   central coordination but wanted to note the issue.

Geir took an action item to come up with and execute a plan whereby he delegates a number of the more routine activities currently only assigned to the VP, JCP.

25 Apr 2007 [Matt Hogstrom / Sander]

The Apache Geronimo Project has been mostly focusing on achieving
Java EE 5 functionality for its 2.0 release. We have been refining
our release procedures and as a result have been fairly consistent at
releasing monthly Milestones to make our work in progress available
to users.

Version 1.2 is nearing its readiness to release but has been delayed
due to external dependencies that have not been fulfilled.

Collaboration with several other projects in Apache is going on which
includes Axis 2, OpenJPA, OpenEJB, CXF and Yoko.
Releases

 * Geronimo
   2.0-M2 and 2.0-M3 were released in January and February respectively.
   Continuing the "Drive to 5" and hope to have a developer release by
   May.
 * Geronimo Javamail
   New release of the javamail jars were released. The new versions are
   geronimo-javamail_1.3.1_mail-1.1, geronimo-
   javamail_1.3.1_provider-1.1, and geronimo-javamail_1.3.1_spec-1.3.

Devtools
Xbean
Website

Migrated the authoring of the website to Confluence. GMOxSITE space
can be updated by Geronimo committers only and uses autoexport plugin
to create the HTML version that is served from minotaur.
Some content on the website such as plugin repo lists, schemas,
images are still maintained via the original svn repo.

   The PMC approved a policy allowing read access to our TCK
framework for any Apache committer that has signed the NDA for access
to the Sun TCK. There is a 72-hour waiting period for non-Geronimo
committers so the PMC membership can comment. Non-committers are
granted read-only access (and can earn karma) while Geronimo
committers are granted Read / Write access.

Summary -
All in all it was fairly quiet at the end of the year.  The project
team has been focusing on two releases.  1.2-beta was released that
includes integration of three projects from the incubator (OpenEJB,
Yoko and OpenJPA).  2.0-M1 was released that includes many of the new
Java EE 5.0 technologies.  The project is working towards a goal of
completing a certified server in time for Java One.  2.0-M1 also
pulled in CXF from the Incubator.

Collaboration with several other projects in Apache is going on which
includes Axis 2, OpenJPA, OpenEJB, CXF and Yoko.  There has been some
mention about OSGi which would include Felix but that work hasn't
really taken off yet.

Here are the details.

- Releases
1.2-beta was released in December
2.0-M1 was released in December
2.0-M2 is targetted for release at the end of January of this year

- JUGs and Conferences
JUGs Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Boulder and Dallas in November
Javapolis in December
Open Source Conference in Tokyo in December

- Certifications
None at this time

- Subprojects

* DayTrader
Released a performance report on Geronimo in October.  DayTrader was
the benchmark sample used for comparisons.  The report can be found at
http://people.apache.org/~hogstrom/Geronimo-1.1.1-PerformanceReport.pdf

* DevTools
1.2.0 was released in November.  This included the ability to fully
edit Geronimo.xml plans.

* XBean
Version 2.8 was released in early January

* Specifications
Specifications were reorganized after several months of debate.
Rather than having a single version for the specifications each one
is packaged separately.  Dain Sundstrom volunteered to help keep the
releases and organization going.

* Other Work
WADI clustering has been moving forward
GCache has continued development but there has not been a lot of
activity on the list.
New JMX console was added to Geronimo 1.2
JNDI / Classloader viewer was added by a new community member.
Really neat stuff.

Ken to provide report at next month's (Aug 2006) meeting

26 Apr 2006 [Ken Coar]

his report covers the period from 2006-01-18 through 2006-04-18.

Activity:
- ---------
Presentations about Apache Geronimo were given variously by
Dain Sundstrom, Aaron Mulder, Matt Hogstrom, and Jeff at JAOO
and The Server Side Symposium.

A lot of work went into giving the Geronimo Web a major facelift.

The issue of having a Confluence wiki hosted on Apache hardware
was raised again, since the vast majority of opinions polled on
the dev list favoured keeping the Geronimo documentation in that
format.  Some progress has been made, but at the moment the
documentation is still hosted at a third-party Confluence
installation offsite.

In this period, 422 JIRA issues were created, 205 were closed,
and 14 closed ones were reopened.  (The reopened ones were not
necessarily closed during this interval.)

PMC:
- ----
Jason Dillon and Kevan Lee Miller were invited to join the PMC,
and both accepted.

A number of individuals who have been given commit karma in
the past have subsequently largely disappeared from the
project.  Although the PMC hasn't yet decided what to do
about that sort of situation, it has been a major factor
in several PMC members' opinions that an invitation to join
the PMC should not be considered for some indefinite interval
after karma has been granted.  Since I personally disagree
strongly with that position and am not satisfied that anyone
has identified any harmful effects, I do not consider the issue
yet closed.

Although the subject of project bylaws/guidelines has come
up several times, and various people are ruminating on the
issue, no concrete progress has been made on that front.

Committers:
------------
The PMC voted to offer commit karma to Hernan Cunico, and he
accepted.  There are other karma votes currently in progress.

It was asked if code contributions to Geronimo were bypassing the Incubator. The main issue is whether the sponsor gets to select the final destination of the project.

It was noted that Trifork/Yoko split off and it was asked if this effectively caused the commit list to be reduced. It was reported that no one has lost commit access.

The question was raised on whether the timeline for persons to go from committer to PMC membership was out-of-line with that seen in other projects. It was reported that this was actively being watched, but no action has been taken, or is required, at this time.

18 Jan 2006 [Ken Coar]

The Apache Geronimo project released version 1.0 in January, and is
currently discussing/working on 1.01 with the goal of releasing it
Q1CY2006.  Development work on JEE 5 will be starting in this
timeframe as well.  Positive feedback and testimonials have been
coming in from the user community.

A number of external projects with connexions to Geronimo have applied
or will be applying to the incubator.  Despite the fact that some have
been accepted alread and are in incubation, there is still some
uncertainty about their evential destinations if Geronimo is not to
become an umbrella.

John Sisson, Matt Hogstrom, and Sachin Paten were added to the
Geronimo PMC in December 2005.

Community issues appear to be generally improving, but there are
still some areas of concern.  Time will tell, hopefully.

Achievements
============

1) M5 release - this is the first fully J2EE 1.4 certified
 release of Apache Geronimo. This was the basic goal of the
 project since it's founding, and we are very proud to have
 achieved this in only a little over 2 years.

2) Apache Tomcat is fully supported and certified - as part
 of the M5 release, we now offer Apache Tomcat as an
 option as the web container in the server.  Along with
 Jetty, this is fully certified as compatible.

3) Added two new committers, Sachin Patel and Matt Hogstrom.
 These are two great developers who are adding quite a lot
 in the areas of tooling and performance.

4) Added  Eclipse plug-in to project - we now have our tooling
 efforts off to an excellent start with Eclipse support for
 creating, deploying and debugging applications for
 Geronimo

5) Added "DayTrader" performance application - DayTrader is a
 J2EE application designed to test the real-world usage of
 J2EE functionality.  We expect to use DayTrader to help
 improve performance and tune Apache Geronimo

6) Addition of XDoclet2 plug-in - another addition to our
 tooling effort, we now have work underway to supply a
 XDoclet2 plug-in for Geronimo

7) Create new subproject - dev tools - home for our tooling
 efforts, this subproject contains the new eclipse plug-in
 and XDoclet2 plug-in.

8) Logo contest - we have run and completed a contest for the
 project logo.  We are currently finalizing formal contribution
 of all rights to the logo to the ASF by the creator.

9) General steady progress made in community growth as evidenced
 by downloads and mail list traffic and diversity

Upcoming
========

1) Major effort will be focused on upcoming 1.0 release, targetted
 for ApacheCon 2005

2) Expect our community to continue to grow now that we've reached
 the certification milestone.  The server now is usable as a
 J2EE server, and this will garner both users and contributors.
 For example, we're expecting new contributions to the project,
 such as code forming a starting point for a new CORBA implementation
 to get us free of the Sun JDK ORB.

3) Continued work on project guidelines and governance, such as
 outstanding discussions surrounding PMC chair succession.

It's been an interesting quarter for the Apache Geronimo project,
with several highlights to note :

Technology News :

- Most significantly, the project was able to pass all automated
 tests of the J2EE TCK.  This is a major milestone
 and a significant achievement for any organization, especially
 a community of volunteers like Apache Geronimo.  We expect to
 announce a fully J2EE 1.4 certified version Real Soon Now.

- The IBM Corporation has contributed an administration console
 for Geronimo.  This came from the Gluecode JOE product, and
 the community is now working to integrate with Geronimo.

- We believe we have finished integration of Apache Tomcat into
 the project, making it a choice for users for the servlet
 container, along with our original choice, Jetty.

- We now also have an implementation of the just-completed JSR-208,
 Java Business Integration, integrated as a module for Geronimo.
 We plan to get the TCK from Sun and certify the combined
 implementation.

Community News :

- We have added a new committer, John Sisson.  He is hard at work
 and is also helping with the TCK work.

- We have added Jeff Genender to the PMC.  Jeremy Boynes has
 resigned from the PMC.

- JavaOne : we had good representation of the project at JavaOne
 with a significant percentage of the committer team attending the
 conference.  Further, we had one regular technical session
 on Geronimo at the conference, as well as a BOF.

- In early May,  IBM acquired Gluecode Inc, a company focused on
 commercial products and support based on Apache Geronimo.  In
 doing so, we believe this is a vote of support for Apache
 Geronimo and are anticipating that such a move by IBM will
 help bring new community members to the project.  For example,
 we have seen signs of this with Trifork, a J2EE vendor,
 approaching the project with the intent of contributing and
 building products based on Geronimo.  Further, BEA announced
 at JavaOne that their commercial tool products will support
 Apache Geronimo

Upcoming :

- the team is hard at work on the M4 release, which we hope
 will be our last milestone release before the final push for
 our 1.0

- We have just kicked off discussion about adopting a formal set
 of project guidelines.  We hope that this will help with
 resolution of issues going forward.

Other :

- The Geronimo PMC is currently having internal discussions to
 address internal communication and process issues.  Among other
 things, we were asked by the ASF Board to investigate two issues
 of concern to the PMC.  The general opinion is that we have
 done so and are awaiting discussion of resolution from the board.
 Given the sensitive nature of those issues and the public status
 of this report, please refer to the PMC list archive for further
 information or discuss with any PMC member.  If a formal response
 is requested from the board on this issue, it will be provided.

27 Apr 2005 [Geir Magnusson Jr]

The Apache Geronimo project has generally been fairly quiet due
to concentrated effort at completing the J2EE 1.4 spec feature set,
and testing via the J2EE TCK.

1) We are making good progress on the committer front with three new
committers.  This was an issue we were going to focus on coming out of
incubation, and we're starting to see dividends from that effort.
We do still believe that it's more difficult than we would like for
new people to engage on the codebase at the moment due to the complexity
of what we are currently working on, but we think that once we get past
certification, and can focus on other issues like usability and such.
That phase of the project will create lots of opportunity for those
that aren't hard-core spec geeks to get involved.  We have two
individuals that have been offered committer status, have accepted,
and are active :

 - Jeff Genender
 - Mark DeLaFranier

We also have on individual who has been offered committer status and
is working through the ICLA and CCLA issues with his employer.  He
still continues to participate during this process :

 - John Sission

2) We believe that we are now feature complete (or darn close) with
the codebase, to the point that for the most part, TCK testing is
driving the development now.

3) Certification testing with the TCK has been going on for some
months now at a focused steady pace, and we are making fantastic
progress.  We're now mired in the Swamp of Web Services Pathos,
and finding our way out of the Dark Dungeon of Interop, but the
efforts are well handled, the problems understood, and it's now
just a matter of working things out to the end.  :)

4) We continue to collaborate with other projects as much as we
can (due to laziness mostly...).  We are working with the Maven 2
project as a good example of a complicated project to ensure that
Maven 2 can support our build complexity, and continue to examine
ways we can work more with the ObjectWeb projects.  Progress in
solving the ASFs LGPL issues would help us a great deal, and continue
to support and applaud progress in that area.

The Geronimo project community is generally in a heads-down mode,
working on implementation of the remaining pieces necessary to
achieve the goal of J2EE 1.4 certification.

On the development front, we are focused now on :

1) Apache Tomcat integration to offer the home-grown alternative
 to Jetty, the current web container.
2) Interop (CORBA)
3) Web services

In addition to the developmental focus, we are working also in
community development.  To that end, we've added 1 committer since
our last report, and have another 4 in late stage of consideration.

Further, we have recieved a contribution of a codebase for
IIOP/CORBA, which is a big help with the interop development
focus.

20 Oct 2004 [Geir Magnusson Jr]

The Geronimo community is returning to healthy activity after
a brief slowdown during the summer.  I attribute the slowdown
due to summer doldrums, and that a few major contributors
found gainful employment during the summer and were focused
on the new jobs.

The project released milestone release M2, considered by the
projects as a 'technology refresh' for the larger community.
This release included :
- many bugfixes
- EAR deployment support (major feature)
- simplified deployment
- MDB support
- JACC support
- EJB 2.1 timers
- hot deployment of WARs and RARs

The big news is that the TCK work is now going formally, with
steady progress being made.  We have established a private
email list and private SVN repository accessible to those that
have signed the NDA.  Progress on the TCK testing is going well.
We have completed major sections of testing, and working on
continuing development of the pieces that are missing, as well
as fixing bugs in the code that is there.

Another bright spot is that we've been successful in working
with the Apache Tomcat community in bringing basic Tomcat support
to Geronimo.  We are working to increase the integration to let
users of Geronimo + Tomcat take advantage of all the deployment
and management features of Geronimo.

On the community front, while we have no new committers, the
new activity is bringing both new people, and thus we are
starting to identify new candidates, as well as bringing back
older committers that had gone inactive.

We are struggling with the licensing of JavaMail, as we don't
want to implement this JSR due to the widely held opinion that
the spec is insufficient for correct implementation, and there
is no source to reference.  I am [still] working with Sun on
this.  It appears that a complete fix of the Sun binary license
won't be possible, so another alternative is being explored.
Specifically, instead of transferring the RI to the ASF, Sun could
contribute a copy to help bootstrap a compatible independent
implementation of the software.  There are difficulties with this
proposal (hardheaded obstinacy, IMO), but work is still going on.

On the lighter side, I'll note that according to a recent survey
by The Middleware Company, Geronimo is [amazingly] now more widely
used in production than Sybase and Borland :)

The Geronimo project is moving along.  After the push for TLP status,
there was slight 'relaxation' in organizational activity due to a few
factors, the main one being due to professional changes and commitments
outside of the project for a few major committers (people got jobs,
people got new jobs, etc).  I think that this is just part of the
normal ebb and flow of volunteer life.

Despite that, much progress has been made technically as well as in
terms of community outreach and engagement.   We also are discussing
our policy for comitters, both the requirements for new ones, and
possibly a proactive stance towards inactive ones.  In terms of the
goal of certification of compatibility, work is in progress and we feel
that it's slipping a little from our goal of 'in the third quarter' to
probably 'at the end of the third quarter'.

Technical Progress
------------------
Here's a partial list of the technical progress made by the project :

  - JTA: transaction recovery partly works using ObjectWeb
    HOWL logger.  Pluggable framework for recovery in place.

  - J2EECA: inbound adapters can be deployed against mdbs in
    OpenEJB and deliver messages: JMS inbound and outbound
    works with ActiveMQ.

  - EJB timer: Support in geronimo for generic transactional
    timer services.  Used in OpenEJB ejb timer support
    (currently stateless session and mdb only).

  - JSR 88 Deployment - working

  - Message Driven Beans - done

  - Support for old deployment descriptors - done

  - EAR deployment - done

External Community Engagement
-----------------------------

 - Spring : formed a close working relationship with the Spring
   application framework community.  Spring can now be hosted
   and managed by the Geronimo Container (not J2EE stack),
   providing to Spring users with the management and deployment
   features of Geronimo the Container.

 - ActiveMQ, targeted as the JMS implementation, is working well
   with Geronimo.  This is listed as community engagement as our
   original connection was James Strachan, Geronimo member and
   ActiveMQ founder and our current interactions involve more
   people on both sides

 - Apache Webservices : our planned collaboration with AWS is now
   working.  AWS community members are bringing AWS to Geronimo
   and working on the integration pieces.  An AWS member is being
   considered for Geronimo committer status.

 - ObjectWeb HOWL : we are using the HOWL project for transaction
   logging and recovery.  HOWL is a logging project at ObjectWeb
   with significant participation by Geronimo members.

 - OSCON : Geronimo will be well represented at OSCON via 3 talks
   (IIRC) and a "collaborative community" BOF presented by
   ObjectWeb and the ASF.

 - EJB3 EG : the ASF is represented on the EJB3 expert group by Jeremy
   Boynes, and there is a 'lurker' group at Geronimo providing advice
   and support.  Further, David Blevins, a Geronimo member, is an
   independent expert on the EG.

Community Development
---------------------

One of our first orders of business has been to continue to increase
our committers.  To that end, we are currently discussing the offering
of commit status to an individual from AWS.  There's no bad outcome
possible - it's all about timing and being sure of alignment with
project.

Future
------
Besides the continuing technical, community and committer work, our
next order of business is finalizing project guidelines.  So far, there
has been no issues to be resolved via appeal to law - it's a good
community that has had no trouble resolving differences - but we know
that there will be a time.

Establish the Apache Geronimo Project

   The Apache Incubator has voted to graduate the Apache Geronimo
   project out of incubation and petition the board to create
   a new top-level project, Apache Geronimo.  The community, in a
