OpenWebBeans

15 Mar 2017 [Mark Struberg / Marvin]

## Description:
 Apache OpenWebBeans is an ALv2-licensed implementations of the
 "Contexts and Dependency Injection for the Java EE platform"
 specification which is defined as JSR-299 (CDI-1.0) and CDI-1.1
 and CDI-1.2 (MR) specifications (JSR-346).

## Issues:
 There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:
 We released a few maintenance versions plus a small OpenWebBeans
 + Tomcat + CXF + Johnzon based Micro server called Apache Meecrowave.
 Aside from that it was a rather unhasty month.
 We expect high activity again when finally kicking off the work on
 CDI-2.0.
 We also supported the HotswapAgent community with creating ha-OWB support.
 This happened mostly on IRC. I would have preferred to channel this via
 the mailing list, but there was a lot of Questions back%&forth which
 was easier to do on IRC. I'll ask the involved guys to also create
 a bit of documentation on the mailing list and probably on our web
 page.

## Health report:
 All fine I think.

## Description:
 Apache OpenWebBeans is an ALv2-licensed implementations of the
 "Contexts and Dependency Injection for the Java EE platform"
 specification which is defined as JSR-299 (CDI-1.0) and CDI-1.1
 and CDI-1.2 (MR) specifications (JSR-346).

## Issues:
 There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:
 Activity is ok.
 We started with a new subproject called Meecrowave. It is a mircroprofile
 server consisting of Tomcat9 + OpenWebBeans + CXF + Johnzon, all in 9MB.
 https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/openwebbeans/meecrowave/trunk/
 We decided to create an own subproject since we rely on other projects
 and thus we will see separate release cycles as from OWB core.

 We will also see a CDI-2.0 implementation effort soon as the spec
 (JSR-365, available under ALv2) is just about to get finished.

## Health report:
 Nothing special to report. We did not yet create separate tickets for
 Meecrowave as we did not yet have any release.

## Description:
 Apache OpenWebBeans is an ALv2-licensed implementations of the
 "Contexts and Dependency Injection for the Java EE platform"
 specification which is defined as JSR-299 (CDI-1.0) and CDI-1.1
 and CDI-1.2 (MR) specifications (JSR-346).

## Issues:
 There are no issues requiring board attention at this time.

## Activity:
 Activity is really fine.
 We just did a release and are actively contributing to the upcoming
 CDI-2.0 specification.

## Health report:
 The project is a container library which is stable and actively
 used and maintained. Due to the fact that most users are using
 OWB as part of another project (e.g. TomEE) we get much feedback
 in ‚indirect‘ ways.
 We are well staffed but are still actively looking for new
 contributors.

 Activity is up a bit. But please note that those ups/downs
 are totally fine as we fix issues and push new features in 'bulk'.
 The last quarter was a rather active one.

A few OWB committers are actively contributing to the ALv2 licensed

Note that the recent GoogVsOrcl case doesn’t affect OWB
as the CDI specification and TCK are both ALv2 licensed.

We plan to also implement CDI-2.0 (JSR-365) as OpenWebBeans-2.0.x
at a later stage.

Board Issues
There are no issues requiring board attention this time.

Development
Development of the first OpenWebBeans-1.5.x (CDI-1.2) version is already
finished.  We are finished with the SE parts and fully pass this part of the
TCK. We are currently working with the Apache TomEE team to solve tte last few
broken CDI-1.2 TCK JavaEE web-profile tests. Once we finished those tasks
(probably in the next 2 weeks) we will ship a 1.5.0 release.

We discussed that we will likely rename our trunk from owb-2.0.x to owb-1.5.x
as there is a new CDI-2.0 specification and we would like to have the OWB
numbers align with the spec version.


Community

Community activity is fine. We are working towards CDI-1.2 and are already
passing more than 900 TCK tests.

A short note: this is part of JavaEE7 but we don't have any licensing issues
as both the CDI spec and it's TCK are ALv2 licensed.

We are currently watching a new contributor who shipped very valuable fixes
and is working on TCK issues.

OpenWebBeans is an ASL-licensed implementation of the JSR-299: Contexts and
Dependency Injection for the Java EE platform which is defined as JSR-299.

OpenWebBeans has graduated from the Incubator in 16, December 2009.

--Summary--

* OpenWebBeans core project's Java EE library dependencies
have been removed from it. All of the Java EE related capabilities
are provided via plugin model.
* Log4j library dependency has been removed from project, updated
for using standard Java logging.
* All of the specification requirements have been implemented.
* Hard working for passing Web Profile TCK.
* Problems with TCK has been issued to the TCK team.
* Web Profile TCK has been passed.
* Successfully integrated with Apache Tomcat 6.x.
* Successfully integrated with Embeddable OpenEJB in Apache Tomcat 6.x.

--Current Development Status--

* Working on minor bug-fixing.
* Working for releasing a 1.0.0-CR1.

--Future Development Plans--

* Release the 1.0.0-CR1 version.
* Starting to integrate with Geronimo Server.
* Working on JSR-299 TCK Full Profile.
* We have to provide some user guide documentation.

--New Releases--

* No new release.

-- Discussions--

* No discussions.

--Community--

* No new committers.
* Increasing on community support
* More involvement with dev@ mailing list

-- Problems

Integration with the Geronimo needs help from
the Geronimo Server team because integration with the full
Java EE server seems a more complicated than we think. Therefore
passing the full Java EE TCK may not be possible in near feature.

NOTE: In old reports we talked about standalone TCK. Actually
official TCK does provide Web Profile TCK and Full Profile
TCK. In old reports when we said standalone TCK, we removed
the Web Profile and Full Profile Tests from the configuration.
But now, we have passed the Web Profile TCK that also contains
the standalone tests. Therefore we do not mention about the
standalone TCK in this report.

There were some discussions in the PMC-private about the new PMC
members of the OpenWebBeans (that were voted by OWB PPMC/community,
IPMC, and approved by the board) and about some of old incubator
committers current and future status.

PMC of the OWB has decided about issues as follows,

* Enable committer status of Matthias Wessendorf.

* Disable committer status of Mohammad Nour El-Din and email
 to him about fact. Because he expressed that he will not contribute
 more because of interests with other projects.

* Disable committer status of Conny Lundgren and email to
 him about fact. He has never participated in community. He
 was just proposed as an initial committer of the incubator project.

Shane to follow up on committer removals.

OpenWebBeans is an ASL-licensed implementation of the JSR-299:
Contexts and Dependency Injection for the Java EE platform which is defined
as JSR-299.

OpenWebBeans entered the incubator in October 26, 2008. The following
items have been made after the last report

* We cut a M3 release (under vote)
* We implemented a new spec. features, (Portable Extensions, and changed
 APIs)
* We created a JSR-330 API and integrated with it
* We integrated with embeddable OpenEJB in Tomcat to support EJB Beans
* We implemented 2 new samples related with EJB Beans and JMS Injections
* We started a progress to integrate OWB with Apache Geronimo

Belows are the next steps;

OpenWebBeans will be an ASL-licensed implementation of the Contexts and
Dependency Injection for Java EE Specification which is defined as JSR-299.

OpenWebBeans entered the incubator in October 26, 2008. The following items
have been made after the last report

* We released the M2 version
* We created additional documentation in the wiki page
* We implemented full blown JSF + JPA + OWB application that shows usage of
the OpenWebBeans
* Gurkan Erdogdu replaces Matthias Wessendorf seat on the JSR-299 EG

Belows are the next steps;

* We will release the M3 version.
* We will create more documentation in the wiki
* We will continue to attract new committers into the project.

There are some concerns related with the specification and its
implementation,

 * JSR-299 specification has changed so much from the last draft. It has
been having a negative impact on the implementation.
 * Last draft specification has a tight integration with Java EE's other
specifications so that integration with an EJB, Servlet, Managed Beans etc.
with the OWB is unavoidable. So, we have to work closely with other Apache
Teams who have been implementing aforementioned specifications to fully
implement the JSR-299 and to pass TCK.
