Abdera rocks on

There have been some interetsing Atom items recently on James Snell's blog. There was a link to a nice IBM DeveloperWorks article on using Abdera to write Atom feeds to JSON. (I was kinda hoping for an XSL/T, but not matter how you do it, it's a definitely feature that belongs in Abdera.) And there's a good quote from Adrian Sutton's blog post about the Atom features in IBM's Roller and Abdera based Lotus Connections product. And most recently, James linked to the new Google Feed Server project: an Abdera based AtomPub server from Google. All good stuff.

Gotta say, Abdera's looking better and better. It's got the features (IRI support, encrytion, pluggable auth, STAX parsing, etc.) and it's got Dan and appears to have some good momentum going. At this rate, I'm not sure how much more work I'll be putting into ROME Propono. If somebody were to, just for example, contribute an Abdera based AtomPub implementation to Roller, I might have to stop entirely.


"Somebody", eh? ;-)

Hi, what are the differences between, Rome, Rome propono and abderra? Thanks

Abdera is where its at! The upcoming 0.4 release will be very good. I would recommend looking at switching once thats out. We have a much simplified API for developing servers in the works which I think is easier to use than anything else out there.

Ransford, I answered your question with a blog post called ROME vs. Abdera.
