THIS PROPOSAL HAS NOT YET BEEN PROPOSED, STILL A WORK IN PROGRESS
AsyncWeb: A non-blocking HTTP engine written in Java
The Directory MINA sub-project is looking to expand beyond just being a protocol/server construction kit and move towards housing implementations of popular protocols.
AsyncWeb is a HTTP engine written on top of MINA. By bringing the project to the ASF and co-locating with MINA, it can leverage the community of MINA committers, gain increased visibility, and integration with other ASF projects.
RESOURCES TO BE CREATED
- None. (WIll exist in Directory SVN, and utilize existing MINA mailing lists).
AsyncWeb is closely aligned with MINA, since that is its foundation.
AsyncWeb is already licensed under the Apache License 2.0
AVOIDING THE WARNING SIGNS
AsyncWeb is not currently orphaned, and by joining MINA, hopes to add vitality to the project.
Inexperience with open source:
The existing AsyncWeb committers have experience working in open source projects.
No two existing committers are from the same company.
No ties to other Apache products:
Just a user of MINA.
