> [GSOC2012] Hupa evolution
> -------------------------
>                 Key: HUPA-85
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HUPA-85
>             Project: James Hupa
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>            Reporter: Manuel Carrasco MoƱino

> Hupa is an Rich IMAP-based Webmail application written in GWT,  but there is no release
delivered yet
> We propose that gsoc student/s take the actual Hupa code and make it fully functional
adding many features which are missing and removing out-of-dated dependencies in favor of
the new stuff in the latest GWT version.
> ** Hupa Status
>     - Hupa has been entirely written in java to be coherent with the language used in
the James project.
>     - Time ago, Hupa was a reference of a GWT MVP pattern application.  
>     - Hupa MVP design is based of a set of libraries available for gwt a couple of years
ago when Gwt-core didn't have support for MVP
>         Gwt-presenter: for the MVP and EventBus patterns.
>         Gwt-dispatch: for the Command pattern
>         Gin + Guice: for dependency injection. 
>     - Hupa was developed before GWT-2.0 was released, when LayoutPanels, uibinders, Cells,
RF, etc. were not available.
>     - Although Hupa is using the last GWT release, it still depends on some unmaintained
libraries because they have an equivalent feature in modern GWT.
>     - In summary, Hupa is a functional and well designed email client, ready to read,
send and manage messages, but it lacks many of the nice features any email client nowadays
> ** Hupa roadmap
>    - Replace out-of-date dependencies with GWT-2.4.0 stuff
>         Replace gwt-dispatch by RequestFactory
>         Replace gwt-presenter with the available stuff in GWT-2.4
>         Remove gwt-incubator dependency in favor of CellTable and CellTree
>         Use LayoutPanels and DecoratorPanels of css workarounds
>         Use Gwt DnD 
>     - Performance
>         Use gQuery in client side to enhance message view, specially to parse html messages
and remove dangerous tags, instead of expensive parsing in server side
>         Implement Server cache and client storage
>     - New features
>         Contact management.
>         Authentication: Oauth
>         Message filtering, grouping, sorting and labeling. 
>         User settings: name, emails, signature. 
>         Theming.
> ** Student skills: Java, Gwt, Web (Js, Html, Css)
> ** Dificulty: medium
> ** Mentor: Manuel Carrasco <manolo@apache.org>
