Apache ServiceMix is a flexible, open-source integration container that
unifies the features and functionality of Apache ActiveMQ, Camel, CXF and
Karaf to provide a complete, enterprise-ready ESB powered by OSGi.
We have lost a lot of our momentum now that major parts of the functionality
are being maintained in related projects like Apache Karaf and Apache Camel.
In the past month, we've had a discussion on the users@ mailing list about
the status of the project and whether or not ServiceMix is offering any added
value over directly using the related projects. We did get quite a bit of
positive feedback and as a result, we now have more activity again in JIRA
as well as on the mailing lists.
There are no outstanding issues requiring board attention.
Since our last board report, we added 3 new people to the PMC: Dan Kulp,
Jonathan Anstey and Willem Jiang.
The last committer was added in November 2011.
The main goal at the moment is getting the Apache ServiceMix 5.0.0 release
out, in which we will drop support for a few features considered obsolete to
ensure it's easier to keep a steady release schedule in the future.
- Apache ServiceMix Specs 2.4.0 in January
- A set of 22 OSGi bundles in January
- A set of 67 OSGi bundles in February
- A set of 59 OSGi bundles in March
