Subject [ANN] Apache Excalibur retired
Date Fri, 04 Mar 2011 10:22:44 GMT
Announcing that the Apache Excalibur committers have voted to retire
the project due to inactivity.

Apache Excalibur was a Java Inversion of Control container and hosted in
addition a set of reusable components for commons things like caching,
xml handling etc.

We do not know of any natural successors or potential forks for
Excalibur - but there are alternatives like Apache Felix or Apache Aries.

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 Excalibur's retirement at:


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:
