Subject new hivemind library project
Date Wed, 07 Sep 2005 18:48:48 GMT
In case anyone here had any opinions, I was pondering setting up a tiny 
little hivemind library project on sourceforge to provide common 
functionality for things that lots of users seem to be requiring time and 
time again. Like hibernate accesss/security/file view services/etc...

I think Hivetranse looks good, but I remember getting pissed off reading the 
faq entry regarding putting the source in cvs as something that "should not 
be counted on anytime soon", and so rolled my own solution for most of these 

It almost doesn't seem worth the effort, does anyone have an opinion on 
this? I don't want to get stuck adding all kinds of features and crap to it 
right away which is what makes it sad, but it would be so easy to stick it 
out there and tell people to submit patches if they want more....

Or.....perhaps some of the external services in projects like hivetranse 
should be more clearly referenced directly in the tapestry docs? Maybe the 
users guide could have a page for "external libraries" that briefly 
describes some of the common problems people need to solve and how and which 
library provides a solution, with the caveat that it is not maintained by 
any tapestry developers so use at your own risk ;) ....
