Apache Geronimo Board Report
Genesis 2.0 was released using the apache 6 maven pom. This released better aligns Geronimo projects (and any other projects using Genesis) with standard Apache Maven best practices and release procedures.
Significant progress has been made towards a 2.2 server release. We've worked with the Jetty project to integrate Jetty 7, including jaspi support.
Work has begun to implement some of the draft JavaEE 6 spec api jars. This has been complicated by the fact that some Specs are using outdated templates with restrictive licensing terms. Hopefully, this will be fixed soon. There are other issues, such as undocumented updates to jsr250 (annotations) for among other things the servlet 3.0 spec.
An implementation of the OSGi Blueprint specification has been largely completed. With the intent of using the implementation within a future version of the Geronimo server.
JUGs and Conferences
The community discussed using the Apache Nexus installation for release and snapshot staging/deployment. The community decided to hold off on switching to this new process until after the Geronimo Server 2.1.4 release. As 2.1.4 was released, we have begun using Apache Nexus.
