OpenBlueSky Reloaded (and Mavenized)
As time went on, OpenBlueSky became a sort of kitchen sink - that's why, during the mavenization of blueMarine, I'm not mavenizing it with an automatic strategy, and I'm instead moving and cleaning up single modules.
A few days ago I started committed some code to the new OpenBlueSky at Kenai. In particular, it contains all the code that I've commented and I'm still commented about here at DZone, most notably:
- The stuff related to the Pluggable TopComponent (with some new stuff that will be described in new posts)
- The Injectable Lookup Factory
- The JPA implementation which allows to distribute fragments of persistence.xml in multiple modules
- Many other components that I'll discuss in 2010
I'm writing the JavaDoc for all that stuff to make it easier for you to re-use that stuff.
OpenBlueSky is part of my effort to provide reusable components for the Platform. Many issues preventing the reuse have been addressed, but I presume others are still there. If you try an OpenBlueSky component and find that for any reason you can't use it, please let me know by means of one of the project mailing lists. Thanks.
