Released version 0.9.4

Yesterday night I've finally released the version 0.9.4 of Roma Framework. Many news in this release, but the greater satisfaction for me is to watch the project to growth. The download rate is growth along with Wiki page viewed along with external sites that link the Roma Project.

The JMX Monitoring aspect is almost finished, there is the very first preview of "Salsero", the Roma graphical designer tool and much other.

I hope to have a stable version of Salsero for the next Java Day and Java Conference 2006.

Stay tuned!

The FreshMeat effect

After the submission of Roma Project to the FreshMeat web site the hosting service (where Roma's WiKi is hosted) went down. I don't know if the cause was the high traffic reached, but for several hours the server was down. I redirected the domain to the Roma's SourceForge home until XWiki service went up.

My thought was to replace the WiKi service with something other, but now XWiki seems fast enought. I'll give to XWiki another chance ;-)

However, after the FreshMeat earthquake yesterday Roma web has reached 1,371 page view and 20 downloads. Thanks to this interest about the project the SourceForge ranking scaled up reaching the 107th position!

In the next days I'll release the new version with many interesting features...

Stay tuned! ;-)

Roma Framework: work in progress

after some weeks Roma Framework catched the attention of some people at the last JUG Roma (Java User Group) event.

The community is born. Here the numbers:
  • 4 active developers in SourceForge
  • More than 1.000 page viewed in a week
  • in the Mailing list more than 50 messages in few days
I'm working in a very big refactoring to support multiple aspect management in XML config files. The refactoring is done, but some bugs afflict the behaviour of applications developed with Roma. I hope to commit anythings today.

In these days the community talked about Indexing Aspect (Lucene/Compass framework), Maven 2 (instead of Ant), Designer IDE, JMS Monitoring Aspect, and more.

Stay tuned with Roma if you want to learn how to create Web Applications (and other) in some hours using the most modern technologies such as Ajax and JDO.
