About XMLBeans:
XMLBeans is a tool that allows you to access the full power of XML in a
Java friendly way. The idea is that you can take advantage of the
richness and features of XML and XML Schema and have these features
mapped as naturally as possible to the equivalent Java language and
typing constructs. XMLBeans uses XML Schema to compile Java interfaces
and classes that you can then use to access and modify XML instance
data.


Since our last board report, XMLBeans had a new release 2.6.0 in August.
Also, we're in the process to add a new committer, a vote is ongoing for
a long time community member: Jerry Sy to become an XMLBeans committer.

Also one PMC member, Ken Kress, opted to become emeritus
and was marked as such in Apache records.

There are no other issues requiring board's attention.

XMLBeans missed the reports to the board since March, I'm fully
responsible for this.

For the last six months, the traffic on mailing list went down with the
exception of this month. The traffic in the last month is due to the
proposed new release, release candidate 2 is already out 3 should come
soon. Our last release was more than one year ago.

Even though the traffic is low, there are non-committer people
participating on the mailing list and even submitting patches.

The involvement of many XMLBeans committers is very low or absent for
the last six months. We're looking to attract new committers, I hope
we'll have at least one proposal soon. There were no changes in PMC or
new committers since last report.

There are no other issues requiring board's attention.

XMLBeans continues with activity on the mailing list, latest release was
made available in the maven 2 repository missing found by an outside
user. But in the same time code contributions are down, partly due to
code stability.

There were no new committers or PMC changes in the last quarter.

The only problem worth mentioning is the amount spam on the wiki. It
can't be maintained manually anymore. I asked infrastructure@apache.org a
couple of times but there was no response. In my opinion, we require a
global solution for all Apache wikis, if there isn't one already.
UPDATE: Infra sent a response but I didn't received it. I opened JIRA
INFRA-4230:
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INFRA-4230 for tracking it.

Not much code development happening since the last report but there was
a flurry of emails on the mailing list and also wiki updates.

There was no new releases but there is talk about a new release, if the
current committers find the time to work on it. We need to bring new
people to the project.

XMLBeans missed the submission to last board meeting so this combines
information for the last month and the previous quarter.

This was a regular quarter for XMLBeans project, there were no release,
no new committers or changes in PMC.
Email traffic on mailing lists was lower than previous quarters, but for
last month the number got closer to older rate, there are still new
users with new usage questions that are answered promptly.

XMLBeans PMC responded to boards request to remove the old releases from
Apache dist.

15 Jun 2011 [Cezar Andrei / Sam]

A report was expected, but not received

16 Mar 2011 [Cezar Andrei / Roy]

XMLBeans is a technology for accessing XML by binding it to Java
types. XMLBeans provides an XMLSchema Object Model, and in-memory XML
store and a set of tools to make XML manipulation a lot much easier.

Though the traffic on the lists went down for the last 3 month, there
were a few instances when new users asked for new features and even
submitted a simple patch for a possible solution. This most likely shows
that new people are still using XMLBeans but in the same time it became
a solid and stable technology.

The PMC started discussions for a new XMLBeans release.

Since our last report to the board there were no new releases or
changes in the PMC or committers.

15 Dec 2010 [Cezar Andrei / Doug]

As usual there are a steady number of messages on the mailing lists, the
code commits are mostly bug fixes as the technology becomes more stable.
There is almost one year from the latest release, this should make us think
about planning for triggering another release.

For this last quarter, there were no new releases, no new committers or PMC
changes. At this time there are no issues requiring the board's attention.

20 Oct 2010 [Cezar Andrei / Jim]

The community around XMLBeans remains the same, traffic seems steady
on the mailing list, and people are asking lots of questions while
others are answering them timely. Number of check-ins is getting
lower, due probably to the fact that XMLBeans is a stable technology
and also due to the summer time.

There were no new committers, changes to the PMC or any other issues
requiring board’s attention.

16 Jun 2010 [Cezar Andrei / Brian]

XMLBeans is a technology for accessing XML by binding it to Java types.
XMLBeans also provides APIs to handle XMLSchema metadata, to access XML
as a DOM or as a low lever cursor based model.

As usual the traffic is steady on the mailing lists, new bugs,
questions, comments and most important answers were present both
from committers and non-committers.

There were no new releases, no new committers or pmc changes
for this period.

There are no issues requiring board’s attention.

21 Apr 2010 [Cezar Andrei / Roy]

XMLBeans missed the report last month; we're following up this
month. Since the last report in December, XMLBeans had finished
the 2.5.0 release, new bugs and fixes went in since than.

After the holidays the traffic on the mailing lists came back up,
as always there are questions from new people all the time, and
answers from both committers and non committers.

There were no new committers or PMC changes this quarter, nor any
other issues requiring board's attention.

16 Dec 2009 [Cezar Andrei / Brett]

This quarter was a busy one for the developers of XMLBeans with the v2.5.0
release preparations. Right now we're in the process of voting for RC1 to
become the official v2.5.0 release.

Community wise, the involvement on the mailing lists with questions, answers,
feature requests and release continues steadily.

There were no new committers or PMC changes this quarter.

There are no issues requiring board's attention.

23 Sep 2009 [Cezar Andrei / Greg]

XMLBeans Report

There was a regular quarter for XMLBeans. On the development side there were
quite a few new fixes checked in, which brings us on the brink of a new
release. And on the community side the mailing lists are busy as usual and
the PMC voted on adding Jacob Danner and Wing Yew Poon to its ranks. The
vote ended with only positive answers, they were acknowledged by the ASF
board and they were added to the XMLBeans PMC.

There are no other issues that require board's attention.

15 Jul 2009 [Cezar Andrei / Justin]

(updated from June report that missed the deadline)

This last quarter was a usual quarter for XMLBeans. There were commits with
bugs fixes and a few new features, notably a patch for a new feature from a
non committer contributor. Activity on the mailing lists continue at the
same levels, there are always new users asking but also answering
questions.

Out of the ordinary, XMLBeans PMC is sponsoring the proposal of Apache
VXQuery project for incubation. At this moment the proposal has met the
requirements of the Incubator PMC.

There were no new committers or PMC changes, and no new releases this
quarter. There are no other matters requiring board's attention.

17 Jun 2009 [Cezar Andrei / Greg]

Greg to pursue a report for XMLBeans

18 Mar 2009 [Cezar Andrei / Justin]

The activity on the mailing lists stays at the same levels with a slight
increase in the last few weeks. There were a few bugs on JIRA that were
promptly responded and closed. Also a bigger feature is in discussion that
came from a non committer.

For this quarter, there were no new releases though there were code fixes
going into trunk. There were no new committers and no PMC changes and no
other issues requiring board's attention.

17 Dec 2008 [Cezar Andrei / Geir]

As usual traffic on the mailing list remains stable, there are many
questions from fresh new users. The process of adding Wing Yew as a new
committer has been finished.

Development was focused mainly on bug fixes, many of them found by the
community, some even had fix patches.

There were no new releases this quarter, and there were no issues requiring
board's attention.

17 Sep 2008 [Cezar Andrei / J Aaron]

On July 8, there has been a new official XMLBeans release v2.4.0 that
included numerous features and bug fixes requested by the community.

A few of the improvements in this release:
. Finer grained support for CDATA
. Upgraded support for Saxon 9
. Added more fine-grained control over XML to Java name mapping .
Add support for JVM-supported encodings . Advanced XPath and XQuery
support is provided through Saxon-9.0.0.4.
. Bug fixes

The community continues to grow both through presence on the mailing
list but also by adding a new committer. The project voted this quarter
on the addition of Wing Yew Poon as a new committer.

There are no other issues requiring board's attention at this time.

25 Jun 2008 [Cezar Andrei / Geir]

XMLBeans board report, June 2008

Last quarter was a little busier than usual; there were more
checkins than usual, including new features and fixes in
preparation for the next release. The process for the new v2.4.0
release has started. Activity on the mailing lists also seems to
have increased in the last month.

There are no new committers or pmc changes. Also there are no
issues to require board's attention.

19 Mar 2008 [Cezar Andrei / Sam]

As usual, development continues with small fixes. On the community side,
the mailing list seems to have increased the traffic lately, mostly with
user questions that get answered quite promptly.

There were no releases, no new committers and no issues to be brought to
board's attention this quarter.

The Cryptography discussion was brought on dev list, and we believe that
XMLBeans project doesn't contain or directly use any cryptographic code,
so there is no requirement for export control notifications.

19 Dec 2007 [Cezar Andrei / Greg]

The project continues to be active. The development continues mostly
with bug fixes. The traffic on mailing lists continues to be high. There
are many user questions but many show XMLBeans as part of complex
applications.

There are no new releases this time.
There were no PMC changes. Jacob Danner was added as a new committer to
the project.

Also we found out that the latest release of IntelliJ Idea (7.0.1)
includes out of the box integration with XMLBeans.

Approved by General Consent.

19 Sep 2007 [Cezar Andrei / Justin]

The project continues to be active.

There are no issues requiring Board attention at this time.

For the last months activity on user list is about the same, on the dev
list decreased a little compared to previous quarter when the 2.3 release
was prepared. A new feature that allows XMLBeans instance objects to
interact with Hibernate and other frameworks that use public empty
constructors, was discussed on the dev list.

Jacob Danner was voted and added as a new committer.

There were no PMC changes this quarter.

Approved by General Consent.

7. Special Orders

20 Jun 2007 [Cezar Andrei / Jim]

Activity on XMLBeans increased in the last months, there was more
traffic on the mailing list and there were more commits than usual in
preparation for a new release. After four release candidates, XMLBeans
v2.3.0 was released on June 1st.

Few of the improvements in this release, for a more complete list of
changes see CHANGES.txt.
* Added options to handle serialization of CDATA sections
* Improved XQuery support by updating support of SaxonB-8.8
* Numerous bug fixes

There were no new committers or PMC changes this last quarter.

Approved by General Consent.

16 May 2007 [Cezar Andrei / Cliff]

Development increased to the end of the quarter in order to push for a new
release. The preparations for the new release influenced traffic on both
dev and user lists, but weve also seen an increased traffic from user
community unrelated to the release.

There were no new committers or PMC changes.

A new release is in the process, there has been already 2 RC-s, and the
third is in the making to include a change request to remove the QName
and NamespaceContext classes from the xmlbeans jar.

xmlbeansc++ subproject: XMLBeans PMC and subproject mentor Cliff Schmidt
recommended in the last board report to close the subproject due to lack
of interest from committers and community.

Greg asked if the xmlbeansc++ subproject was closed or not. Cliff to follow up.

Approved by General Consent.

25 Apr 2007 [Cezar Andrei / Cliff]

Following the request of the board regarding the status of xmlbeanscxx
subproject, Cliff Schmidt, mentor of the project, sent out a message
on the project's email list cxx-dev@xmlbeans.apache.org asking if the
project needs to be closed since there wasn't any serious activity in
the last 6 months. Cliff received a couple private emails from
xmlbeans-cxx committers saying that they don't believe this project
is likely to become more active in the foreseeable future.

Given the circumstances, with regrets, XMLBeans PMC and Cliff's
recommendation is to officially close xmlbeanscxx subproject.

It was noted that this report was just to make up for the issues with xmlbeans-cxx from last month. Henri asked if the PMC was asking the board to close their subproject. Cliff will follow up with Cezar.

Approved by General Consent.

28 Mar 2007 [Cezar Andrei / Sander]

Development continues with small enhancements and bug fixes. Traffic on
mailing lists seems to be at the same levels after a little slowdown during
holidays. There were no new releases this quarter but discussion started on
dev list for a new 2.3 release. There arent any new committers or PMC
changes.

Xmlbeanscxx subproject:

 Report not yet received.

There was some question regarding if the report was acceptable due to the XMLBeansCXX "subreport" not being included. Cliff will work with XMLBeans about XMLBeansCXX, since we wish to avoid issues regarding umbrella or "umbrella-like" projects and their pitfalls.

Approved by General Consent after some discussion.

20 Dec 2006 [Cezar Andrei / Cliff]

Development continues on the same trend, there was an upgrade to use the
latest version of Saxon 8.8 for XPath/XQuery support in XMLBeans and a
more flexible Schema generator and bug fixes related to xml saving,
error handling of type system, dates and duration. Traffic on the
mailing lists is at the same levels, though new users are asking
questions, sometimes quite advanced.

There were no new releases, though it's probably a good time to start
thinking of a new minor release.

There were no new committers or PMC changes.

Status for XMLBeanscxx subproject:
 1) 2 committers granted karma
 2) initial code drop into ASF
 3) some discussions w/ other Apache projects re: usage of xmlbeanscxx

Approved by General Consent.

20 Sep 2006 [Cezar Andrei / Cliff]

1. Development continues with a few new features like options for
controlling when CDATA is used, update executing XQuery with Saxon-B
version 8.6.1 engine and bug fixes for synchronization, locking,
serialization and XQuery execution.

2. XMLBeans v2.2.0 was released on 23rd of June.

3. There were no new committers or PMC changes this time.

4. For XMLBeansCxx project in Incubator, from Cliff Schmidt:

 The xmlbeanscxx proposal has been resubmitted with a somewhat different
 set of committers and a new code base.  Just after being accepted for
 incubation some time ago, the committers discovered that another open
 source developer had a similar code base.  The two groups got together
 before anything got started at Apache and have come back with a new
 proposal, which is being voted on now by the XMLBeans pmc (results
 will be known Tuesday morning PDT).

The "reboot" of the XMLBeansCxx podling was noted.

19 Jul 2006 [Cezar Andrei / Dirk]

 fixes, this probably explains dev list traffic slowing but traffic

2. The process for a new release v2.2.0 is going on right now.

3. PMC Chair change Cezar Andrei replaced Cliff Schmidt.

4. There were two JavaOne BOF's that talked about XMLBeans: XMLBeans
 2.1: A Java(tm) Technology Developer's Perspective and What You
 Need to Know About Schema Design Patterns and Java(tm) Technology.

5. From xmlbeanscxx subproject: Still moving slowly after the new

15 Mar 2006 [Cliff Schmidt]

 * Added Lawrence Jones as an XMLBeans committer

 * No new major development lately -- mainly bug fixes lately
   to the 2.1 release.  Should be releasing a 2.1.1 in next
   quarter.

 * Related to the note above, there has recently been a drop in
   traffic on the dev list (other than lots of jira activity).
   However, the user list is stronger than ever.

 * xmlbeanscxx folks are slowly getting started.

 * I'm thinking it's about time I step down as XMLBeans PMC
   chair.  I'm not actively involved in the project, but have
   been doing my best to handle chair responsibilities.  I think
   the project would benefit from having an active committer take
   my place, while I stay on as a PMC member.

21 Dec 2005 [Cliff Schmidt]

 * Resolved JSR-173 RI licensing issue.  BEA licensed the necessary
   parts under the Apache License; so, there is no longer any licensing
   issue there.

 * Released XMLBeans 2.1.0, which includes the relicensing mentioned
   above, plus some minor fixes.

 * Still waiting on the incubating C++ XMLBeans subproject to get
   started.  I saw a couple of the initial committers attached to the
   proposal at ApacheCon -- they believe they should be getting
   something started very soon.   I'd be more concerned if any company
   was out issuing press releases about it without having done anything
   yet, but it doesn't appear that has been the case.

 * No new committers or PMC members this quarter, but still a very
   active user and developer community.

Approved by General Consent.

21 Sep 2005 [Cliff Schmidt / Dirk]

 1. Added a new committer: Yana Kadiyska, a long-time contributor to
 XMLBeans.

2. Added a new PMC member: Radu Preotiuc-Pietro, who has been a
 committer for several months. There are now nine PMC members.

3. Discussed concerns about the licensing of the JSR-173 RI, on which
 XMLBeans currrently depends.  The RI was licensed by BEA, under
 terms that they thought would be compatible with ASF distributions.
 Members of the PMC raised the issue with BEA, and they are now
 investigating options to relicense it.  Until that happens, this
 remains an open issue.

- PMC approved new xmlbeanscxx subproject proposal from RogueWave.
 This proposal also caused another potential contributor (Tomasz
 Wielga) for a C/C++ version of xmlbeans to come forward!  Currently
 waiting on CLAs from initial committers.
- Candidate for the final xmlbeans v2 release is now posted for final
 community review.  Vote to happen later this week.

- getting very close to a final v2.0.
- discussed RogueWave's proposal for a C++ port/subproject of
 XMLBeans.  The PMC didn't see any blocking issues with it, but we've
 asked them to propose it on the dev list for a public discussion and
 vote.  If all goes well, we'll be asking the Incubator PMC to take
 them on.

Still on the todo list:
- Get XMLBeans charter agreed on and approved
- Work with XML community to define XML federation

 There was concern noted about the makeup of the community, that
 there was an overrepresentation of BEA on the PMC.  Sam noted
 with general agreement that with Ted and Dims on the PMC, we can
 be assured that any problems will be dealt with or escalated to
 the board.

 Without further discussion, the Creationg of the XMLBeans PMC
 was approved through unanimous vote.
