Spring Modules Fork

Filed under: Java — Tags: , , , — Antony Stubbs @ 10:45 pm
Ok guys – the project is up on git-hub!
Install Git! – http://git-scm.com/
To download an anonymous repository run http://github.com/astubbs/spring-modules or sign up with git-hub and get your personal account!
Let the patching begin!
From the Wiki page: “””
This is a resurection of the extremely valuable and abandoned Spring-Modules project.
The plan is to fully embrace Maven as the build tool and eventually throw out all the old build code.
At this point, all the old jar libraries and generated documentation have been pruned from the repository history.
This pruning has reduced the size of the repository from 95m to 7m. Nice.
The idea will be to slowly add one by one, as the are compile ready, to the parent module section, so they can be included.
Msg/email me on antony.stubbs@gmail.com to discuss!

I will try and get a development mailing list setup asap, but for now, email me on antony.stubbs@gmail.com with the [subject spring-module-fork] and I’ll start building a manual list.

One thing I want to discuss is ow we can organise the issues on jira :/ I still have had no response from InspiSpring.

Inspired by my work with Spring Modules (or difficulties with), and as explained in this post on the Spring Modules forum, I am now announcing the Spring Modules Fork! An effort to bring back to life some very useful software!

I have emailed various people and even emailed suggesting an extensions project as described on the Spring site[1] but haven’t had any responses.

As Spring Modules has been officially declared dead [2] and i’m not getting nay replies to my mails I would like to fork the project into git-hub and get some vital patches applied – particularly on my area of interest – the cache module. I also would like to migrate the whole project to maven.

I’m posting here to get any thoughts or suggestions regarding this – hopefully a response from someone at Spring – particularly Colin Yates.

Let’s get this useful software moving again!

P.s.  I’ve also setup a mailing list now:

  2. I want to be a collaborator in the project, do I need some special permission? or should I only collaborate through providing patches?

    I’m specially interested in the bean validator module.

    Thanks and regards

    • Absolutely! Join the discussion on the google group(we are actually just talking about validator module a lot!), and fork the code on github!

      Feel free to email me or the group with any questions…

      Regards, Antony Stubbs, Singapore.
