Subject Apache Shale retirement
Date Thu, 11 Jun 2009 06:39:32 GMT
Announcing that the Apache Shale committers have voted to retire
the project due to inactivity.

Shale is a web application framework, fundamentally based on
JavaServer Faces. The Shale Test code has been forked into the
Apache MyFaces project and list discussion highlighted MyFaces
and JBoss Seam as successor projects.

Retiring a project is not as simple as turning everything off, as
existing users need to both know that the project is retiring and
retain access to the necessary information for their own development

You can read more about Shale's retirement at:


In particular we recommend Kito Mann's excellent blog entry on
the subject:


The user mailing list remains open, while the rest of the project's
resources will continue to be available in a read-only state -
website, wikis, svn, downloads and bug tracker with no change in url.

Providing process and solutions to make it clear when an Apache
project has reached its end of life is the role of the Apache Attic,
and you can read more about that at:

on behalf of the Apache Attic and the now retired Apache Shale project
