Subject Re: Archiva interest in ACE (or: cross-pollinate opportunity for maven repo OBR)?
Date Fri, 05 Nov 2010 09:11:11 GMT
Hi Premek,

After reading Marcel's response, moving that code out into its own bundle
was pretty much my first thought.  +1 =)

After diving into the code last night, I noticed the OBR stuff is
encapsulated quite well in the the modules OBR Metadata (where the indexer
is), OBR Store, and OBR Servlet.  If we would be able to pull this code out
and export the API for the store backend, I can create an adapter to deal
with the pluggable nature of Apache Jackrabbits FileStore.  Once we do
this...I think we'll be in business.
