    Autonomous Project

    Ovidiu Feodorov Master

      I posted the same topic in the JBoss Labs forum, but it seems it was the wrong forum to post on.

      Do we currently have the possibility to host an autonomous prototype project?

      Use Case:

      I am currently working on the JMS Facade, which is a pretty self contained (to a point) part of the JBoss Messaging. I am tying together JBoss AOP, JBoss Remoting and a lot of new constructs, and

      1. I don't know yet how the final architecture will look like
      2. I expect a lot of refactoring and package creation/deletion

      so I need some sort of playground that can be accessed by all contributors to the project, without poluting the main JBoss CVS repository with a lot of stuff that will be eventually thrown away.

      I can certainly do this on my own machine, but the main reason I want it shared is that I want to involve the contributors early in the process, hence shared CVS access.


      - independent and self-contained CVS space. Nobody depends on it.
      - i can take care of my own dependencies (j2ee, remoting and aop in this case) by making local copies of the jars but if it would be nice if I can access them from a central location.
      - controlled public access: everybody can read, designated users can write
      - autonomous build system
      - no need for automated builds; it's a prototype, I don't care for unit tests at the moment
      - the prototype is specifically written with the final goal of being thrown away. The final result (or more likely parts of it) will be manually ported into the main JBoss CVS repository.
