Roller Strong #4

Lilac breasted Roller
Lilac-breasted Roller by David Meeker

Not too much to report this week...

Matt Raible gave his Introduction to Apache Roller webinar on Wednesday. Most unforunately, I was unable to break out of my Wednesday meeting marathon to attend. At some point Matt says he'll post his slides to the Roller wiki.

In Roller development we wrapped up work on the new Roller EZ install, which makes it really easy to install Roller -- just set four properties, deploy roller.war and Roller will start up, creating or upgrading tables as needed.

Also, my Guice proposal gained consensus and I merged the work into the Roller trunk just this morning. As of now, I believe we're feature complete for Roller 4.0.

Tune in next week and perhaps I'll have something to say about release. It's about time to start getting 3.1.1 and 4.0 release candidates ready.


Why use Guice, something hardly anyone uses, instead of Spring, something which is a lot more popular and known?

The Roller EZ install looks very nice, it could be a wonderful feature to get roller diffusion.
I don't know if is it me or the fact that I'm entirely newbie to server applications, because I've had some difficulties with language. In roller mailing list, I asked about it and a guy told that roller 3.1 has not well finished support on language matters. I believe that it's thing which should be checked or reviewed.

Jon, I've looked at Spring and specifically Spring's IOC container a number of times. I found Guice much easier to understand and easier to use. That's why I pushed for Guice in Roller. See also How does Guice compare to Spring et al? on the Guice site.
