Subject Re: Droids community day
Date Wed, 07 Apr 2010 13:37:57 GMT
Hello all,

Is there still interest for a community day? Personally, I am using droids in two projects
to acquire data over the web so I 'd love to see the framework evolving.

I tried to implement [1] some of the changes proposed on Jira and made some refactoring. It's
still buggy but I hope some of these changes may be returned to the community.

The major changes are the following:
	- Droids 56: java.util.Queue is used instead of TaskQueue.
	- Replaced all the factories with a single WorkerFactory. It helps solving the concurrency
	- Handler implementation that uses cocoon.
	- A JMS implementation of the queue (early prototype :-)

As I told before some of the changes have been made as experiments as well as the API modifications.
I'm still using the last droids release for my projects and I just hope this may help thinking
about the future.

Kind regards,

Bertil Chapuis

think a release would be a great idea. What needs to be done for IP clearance?
