New OSLC Project Aims to Improve Community Process
OSLC Open Source project aims to provide tools to support the specification process.
The OSLC Open Source Project Proposal has been posted. OSLC is a community that authors specifications for linked lifecycle data. The OSLC Open Source project proposes to be affiliated with OSLC, and support the work at open-services.net, in an effort to improve the OSLC community process by sharing code and additional supporting materials. The project will consist of test suites for OSLC service provider implementations, reference implementations of OSLC services, specification artifacts, and the tools, models and pictures needed to support the specification process. It will also encourage additional contributions and components that support the OSLC community goals.
The initial contribution will consist of JUnit tests created by IBM developers for testing OSLC implementations in IBM products. The OSLC project code will depend on a number of open source projects, including JUnit 4 and OAuth.net 1.5. Initial committers will be Steve Speicher and Dave Johnson.
