    ModeShape 3.0 Release date

    badr elhouari Novice

      Hi,

       

      I'm planning to upgrade to Modeshape 3.0 and  wondering if somebody have any idea about the final release date or something about the modeshape 3 roadmap release

       

      Thanks in advance!

          We're working on the 3.0.0.Alpha5 release (as I type this), so look for it in a few hours. All in all, even Alpha5 is really close to being feature complete and we're already passing almost all of the JSR-283 TCK, so Alpha5 should be a good point to start giving 3.0 a whirl.

           

          Our criteria for Beta1 was being feature complete, so with only a few small features left we hope that our next release can be 3.0.0.Beta1. After that it's a matter of fixing issues and releasing another Beta every few weeks. My goal is that we can stabilize everything (including doing some performance analysis) before a 3.0.0.Final release in the middle of July.

           

          Hope that information helps!

           

          BTW, any chance you could share your use case and the set of features you're interested in?

           

          Best regards,

           

          Randall

                Hi Randall,

                 

                I'm wondering for some features: Federated repo, Clone feature and Infinispan GridFileSystem support.

                 

                Thanks in advance

                  I'm wondering for some features: Federated repo.

                   

                   

                  Great. The federated stuff will be in 3.1. (If we keep it in 3.0, then the 3.0 date would have to slip more. The calendar time is roughly the same ... in mid-fall.)

                   

                  Clone feature

                   

                  To which clone feature are you referring?

                   

                  and Infinispan GridFileSystem support.

                   

                  By Infinispan GridFileSystem support, do you mean the ability to store binaries there? That might make 3.0; if not then definitely 3.1. 

                   

                  Or do you mean being able to access an Infinispan GridFileSystem via a connector, treating the files and folders on the GridFileSystem as 'nt:file' and 'nt:folder' nodes? That is related to federation, so I'd guess 3.1.

                    About clone I means the method clone(srcWorkspace, srcAbsPath, destAbsPath, removeExisting); in the class  javax.jcr.Workspace because I guess it is not implemented yet!

                     

                    for GridFileSystem, i was just trying to know if there was a way to declare the repository infinispan storage mode as a GridFileSystem

                    To be able to make it readable: https://docs.jboss.org/author/display/ISPN/Grid+File+System

                     

                    thanks

                      Ah, workspace clone will be done by 3.0 (Beta1 or Beta2).

                       

                      I'm not sure how well it'd work to store content on a GridFileSystem. It wouldn't be very efficient, plus ModeShape doesn't really organize it's data using files and folders. Basically, it'd be a big folder plus at least one file per node - which is why it won't really scale or perform well.

                       

                      We do want to integrate GridFileSystem so that we can store binaries in it, and once we have federation we'll want to have a connector to access the (files and folders) already in a GridFileSystem store.

                        Thanks for your replies and your recommendations.

                         

                        So we will try to use pure JCR 2.0 implementaion with Modshape and wait other feature in upcomming version

                         

                        Regards

                          Workspace.clone is implemented and should be present in Alpha 5.
