Abdera is an open source Atom parser, generator, client and server tool-kit for Java. James Snell announced a new version of Apache Abdera (incubating) the other day and the feature list is impressive, especially for a "0.2.0" release. Here's an excerpt:
The goal of the Apache Abdera project is to build a functionally-complete, high-performance implementation of the IETF Atom Syndication Format (RFC 4287) and Atom Publishing Protocol (in-progress) specifications. [... incubator blah blah blah ...]We might have to steal that IRI support for ROME. Actually, that's something that should be built right into the Java platform. Apparently IRI support was considered for Java SE 6 and something was implemented, but then rolled back.
- A reworked API that improves usability
- Decoupled extensions from the underlying parser implementation
- An Atom Publishing Protocol client implementation
- Updated support for the current Atom Publishing Protocol draft specification
- Added support for Internationalized Resource Identifiers (IRIs)
- Improved Thread Safety
- Fixed a number of Classloader issues that kept Abdera from working properly in application server environments.
- Improved Javadocs
- Added test cases and sample code
- Added experimental Bidirectional Text support
- Improved implementation of OpenSearch v1.0 and v1.1 extensions
- Implementation of MediaRSS extensions
- Implementation of Feed Paging and Archiving extensions
- GoogleLogin Authentication Support
