Yoko

14 Nov 2007

The Yoko community has decided that it's probably best to split the project
in two and submit them to be housed as sub-projects of CeltixFire and
Geronimo.  The WS bindings, and the requisite support tools, of Yoko would
move on to CeltixFire with everything else, e.g. ORB and RMI, moving on to
Geronimo.  A committer roll call was performed and a list of developers
still interested with either/both of the two bodies of code.  Proposals will
be submitted to both the CeltixFire and Geronimo PMCs this month.

The Yoko project is a robust and high performance CORBA server which is
usable from inside any JVM.

Since our last report there have been some changes in mentorship and we have
continued to improve the Binding runtime and type support for idltowsdl and
wsdltoidl as listed below.

1) Items to resolve for graduation

* We are also planning to improve the documentation for Yoko, with the goal
of providing more in depth information to users of the Yoko project and to
assist any future committers in understanding the existing code and
functionality.

* Work on stabilizing the code and get it ready for a 1.0 release which
should improve overall quality.

2) Community aspects * We have a new mentor on board: Welcome Matt
Hoggstrom! and thank Ken Coar for his contributions.

* Discussion started about the project status and how it may work better
and/or graduate into other projects like Geronimo, Harmony, and CXF.

* Increased activity on user/dev list around the binding components,
possibly due to the release of CXF driving some interest in the corba
binding components.

3) Code aspects

* Adding more new type support to the binding runtime.

* Continual improvement of performance for the runtime binding in terms of
marshaling and unmarshaling data.

* Adding new type support to the IDLToWSDL and WSDLToIDL tools and adding
quite a number of new tests.

* Fixing some issues in the ORB core code.

* Currently working on preparing Yoko for a 1.0 release.

* Cleaning up the jira issues for the 1.0 release.

The Yoko project is a robust and high performance CORBA server which is
usable from inside any JVM.

Incubating since: 2006-01-31

Since our last report, the majority of the development work in Yoko has
focused on:
 * Adding new type support to the binding runtime.
 * Improving performance of the runtime binding in terms of marshaling
and unmarshaling data.
 * Adding new type support to the IDLToWSDL and WSDLToIDL tools.
 * Fixing minor issues in the ORB core code.
 * Started development of an IDL preprocessor for the tools module.
 * Prepared and completed a Milestone 2 release

Yoko has also become a key component of the soon to ship Geronimo 2.0
release, which has just passed certification tests.

Future plans:

We are currently working to stabilize and finalize type support in the
binding runtime and tools in preparation for a release which would like
to put out shortly.

We are also planning to improving the documentation for Yoko, with the
goal of provide more in depth information to users of the Yoko project
and to assist any future committers in understanding the existing code
and functionality.

Yoko is active and failed to provide a report on time.

Since our last report, the yoko project has added 2 committers(Alexey
Petrenko & Matteo Vescovi). We have released our first milestone release &
working towards our next release (possibly a 1.0 final release). We have
worked actively with the Geronimo, Harmony & CXF projects & fixed a lot of
inter-op issues with the ORB. The tools & the runtime needed to expose the
corba applications as web services is also beginning to look stable. Also,
we have moved to a confluence based system for our web site & currently
working on the documentation of all the components in yoko.

iPMC questions / comments:
* JE: Please submit the report in the correct format next time (i.e. "what
 is Yoko?").
* noel: Your STATUS file appears to be out of date, not reflecting the
 content of this report.

This is the first quarterly report of Yoko. Our goal for this project
was to provide a light weight ORB implementation, an RMI
implementation & also web services capabilities for the CORBA clients
& servers.

We have completed most of the work for having a fully functional ORB &
there have been interest among other projects to use Yoko in their
projects. We are planning to start a vote for our first milestone
release shortly.

Our objective for the next quarter is to work on further increasing
the visibility of the project, attracting additional contributors, and
growing the active community of developers around it.
