initial import of openisis 0.9.0 vendor drop

1 status of OpenIsis development
2
3
4 * stable version
5 Version 0.8.6 marks the first version of OpenIsis
6 to contain basic implementations of all major features
7 required for web based publishing of catalogues:
8
9 - simple queries as typically composed by web search forms
10 - basic formatting (field access and modes) with detailled
11 rendering left to the web frontend code (JSP, PHP ...)
12
13 All features present in 0.8.6 are and will be supported
14 with the same syntax.
15 In most situations you should use the most recent version,
16 but not rely on the new features.
17 If in doubt, please contact us.

19
20 *devel developer version: use with caution!
21 Since summer 2002 we are developing the various 0.8.7.x versions.
22 They include
23
24 - writing capability
25 - new B-L-Tree index
26 - server side sessions
27 - threadsafe buffered IO
28 - preliminary Tcl binding
29 - XML conversion
30
31 Most new features where planned carefully and prepared by a
32 lot of paperwork.
33 However, as long as the number is 0.8.7.*, all features introduced
34 since 0.8.6 are considered experimental and might still need to be changed.
35
36 So before you are going to base a lot of new work on these features,
37 it's recommended that you contact us in order to learn
38 detailled up-to-date status.
39
40 Update: as of March 03, we have the core of a multi-threaded
41 server engine (request dispatcher, session handling) running,
42 a Tcl/Tk GUI demo using TSPs (Tcl Server Pages) and Java code
43 to convert to/from XML.
44 While basically all is as planned, we may remove the Sessions
45 from the API before blessing it 0.8.8.
46
47 Update: as of April 03, Version 0.8.7.5 is the last to contain
48 all that devel stuff. Version 0.8.8 will have explicit
49 passing of Session removed, i.e. change the API.
50
51
52 * plans for 2003
53 (... not necessarily in exactly that order)
54
55 - within short, the new index should support immediate update
56 (DONE) based on basic formatting (TODO)
57 - by end of winter, a local implementation of the server interface
58 should be basis for a first Tk based GUI (Demo DONE)
59 - in spring, a single threaded but multi-session server with
60 GUI client should give proof of all those concepts,
61 marked by version 0.9 (Tests DONE)
62 - during summer, the server should actually run multithreaded
63 and Java, Perl and PHP will get a client binding
64 - once the formatting has gotten a complete overhaul,
65 we may consider OpenIsis "grown-up" and put version 1.0
66 under the christmas tree
67
68 ... ToDo
