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.
iPMC Reviewers: jukka, rdonkin, mvdb 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.
iPMC Reviewers: brett, jerenkrantz, yoavs, jukka, twl 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.
